Following the trail left by many a modern entrepreneur, the VINTA DSLR S-Series made an instant splash in the camera bag market by raising a lofty $78000 via their Kickstarter campaign. A large bulk of that total is thanks to this bag’s simple yet sophisticated look. Selling 350 units before its release is no mean feat, so what is it about the S-Series Backpack that makes it so appealing?
Being the first bag made by a completely new player in the game, the S-Series manages to capture everything about the camera bag industry that diehards look for. With the exterior featuring simple lines, 3 professional colourways, leather detailing and water resistance, VINTA has impressed an expectant customer base.
Dual zips are found at the back, while the front of the bag is a little busier. Magnetic snaps at the bottom open and reveal two small compartments that can hold phones, wallets, pens and most smaller items. Up top, leather straps house an additional small compartment – which contains a mini bag for a spare lens or general paraphernalia. Padded shoulder straps make for a comfortable carry even when the bag is quite full. Overall, the bag feels light yet solid, courtesy of the durable poly fabric.
The VINTA S-Series’ primary camera compartment is accessible from the back of the bag. Here, it accommodates a full-frame DSLR (lens included), along with up to 5 others lenses and any necessary cords. Customisation is a welcome feature, with in-built velcro allowing you to move compartments at will. A padded slot for a laptop up to 15” sits closest to your back and is great if you’re touching up photos on the move.
While the VINTA DSLR S-Series Backpack is retailed higher than some other competitors, the no stone unturned approach makes this piece far more versatile. For a market first-timer, the S-Series is everything a comprehensive camera bag ought to be.
