Chrome made the Niko pack for day-event shooting. It has a fully customisable interior compartment for lenses and flashes, and multiple pockets for cable and gear storage. The quick-access, top-loading compartment provides access to a padded laptop sleeve that fits up to a 15" Macbook Pro. It also provides quick access to personal items like a windbreaker and phone. The outside of the bag features industrial-strength Velcro straps to secure a tripod or skateboard and a u-lock holster. The Niko Backpack is made with a tough, weatherproof, denier-nylon outer shell and military-grade, truck-tarpaulin liner.
While this is not a complete list, these are a few possible combinations of camera equipment for the Niko to pack down. Carry these camera bodies plus a wide-angle lens (e.g. 18-55mm) and still have room for a telephoto lens (e.g. 55-300mm) plus battery packs, cables, and more.
“Very tough bag. Great design, comfortable to wear, very robust and strong design, a lot of useful pockets. Fit my 15’’ macbook pro and my big dslr and lenses. We use it for hiking and it fits some of our gear as well (sunscreen, glasses, wallets, snacks and water bottle). I love that it’s water resistant and not too big but not too small!”
“Best bag for on the go . I bought this bag after having gear break with zip fails on other bags. Can't happen with the design of this bag and is also super comfortable. Great bag.”
“Traveling Europe. I purchased this bag for a recent trip to europe and it performed perfectly! Traveling with me was my canon 5d mark iii, 16-35mm f2. 8, 70-200mm f2. 8 (can be attached to camera in bag) and 50mm f1. 4. Also stored point and shoot, batteries, cards etc. The top pocket could easily fit journal, rain jacket and other bits and pieces. Couldn't reccomend highly enough!”
“Top notch camera bag that does not look like one. Having owned a few different types of camera bags, from inserts, to messenger bags and full fledge professional backpacks, this is one of the most versatile of the lot. It looks nothing like a camera bag and can be used as a fantastic air travel carry-on or day hike bag, with or without a camera inside. The quality of this bag is second to none. I would trust this to last longer than my lowepro bags just by comparing the two side by side. The top compartment is one of the best features of this bag, allowing you to separate things like a rain jacket and a bottle of water from the rest of your gear for quick access. The straps on the front are incredibly tough webbing like those used for seatbelts. The only negative thing i could say about this is that chrome would have provided us with some more dividers, or at least let us purchase some more. But definitely not a deal breaker and the inserts are more than enough for most applications.”
“Perfect bag for a mixture of camera gear and everyday carry. .”
“best. backpack. ever. Light, strong, roomy and provides more protection from the elements than others. Looks sweet without screaming camera gear. A+.”
“awesome bag. Been wanting to buy this bag for a while now, i like the brand they defiantly live up to their reputation this bag is bombproof! Fits all my gear pretty comfortably (2 bodies, one tele lens, 2 wides, and 2 other lenses with a video mic and film) and even fits my glide cam or big video tripod on the exterior which i didn\'t expect.”
“Amazing bag! Bought this bag for my boyfriend\'s birthday, he was incredibly happy with it and how it was a perfect fit for his favourite equipment. The description is accurate, quality good and the comfort is a+. Would buy from you again hands down.”
“Perfect camera backpack. Perfect all round camera backpack. Waterproof, spacious with out being cumbersome. And bloody comfortable. I carry a 5d 3 lenses; speedlight, triggers, filters and still have room for loads more.”
