For outdoor photographers, or for anyone who likes to bring their camera equipment with them on hikes, having to lug around a heavy camera bag in addition to your backpack is a massive headache. So to come up with a solution to this problem, Moment enlisted one of the world’s leading outdoor photographers, Alex Strohl, to design an incredibly lightweight camera bag/mountain pack hybrid with room for all your sensitive photography equipment… along with the rest of your gear.
The Moment Strohl Mountain Light 45L Backpack clocks in at a scant 1kg, which the brand claims makes it the lightest 45L camera bag. It’s constructed from waterproof Cordura ripstop fabric with taped seams, making it both durable and resilient against the elements. A zippered quick-access back panel includes a crushproof, removable camera insert, meaning you’ll always be ready for your next shot at a moment’s notice. There’s plenty of room for your non-camera gear, too, with a removable waist belt pocket for easy-access items, large outer stretch pockets for big gear, shoulder stretch pockets for smaller objects, and various loops and straps for carrying poles and tripods. And if you need additional specialized storage for more cameras, you can purchase the optional modular Mountain Light Camera Loader and Mountain Light Camera Insert. The Moment Strohl Mountain Light 45L Backpack is available for pre-order now from $199.
