The Dakine Reload Backpack is a fantastic backpack for keeping all your equipment safe in harsh conditions, with all zippers seam sealed, no worries when the storms roll in. 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, iPadů 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. An adjustable padded waist-belt for comfort features a handy pocket to store your mobile phone and keep it always at hand. Also included with the bag and stowed away in a base pocket is a rain cover for when conditions get very harsh.
