Our good friend Bruno Smith is an International surf and travel photographer, he carries one of these around with him at all times with is photography gear, he was kind enough to take some fancy pics of the bag so we could share with our readers. Bruno says: "Dakine Reload is the best photography backpack ever - I am Stoked!" Check out some more photos and details of the bag below.

Whether you are a serious photographer searching for the perfect shot or a casual traveler with a just-getting-started setup, the DAKINE Reload Camera Bag can be easily customized to take care of your specific needs.


The 30lt bag features padded, movable dividers inside that accommodate everything from camera bodies and lenses to goPros, flashes, adapters and voltage converters, plus compartments and pouches for laptop, iPad… The back-panel entry gives you quick access to all your gear, and four pockets and three interior lid pockets hold filters, cards, and lens cleaners.

Exterior straps secure your tripods or snowboard/skis and a bottle pocket helps you stay hydrated.
