nobody is here Such a thing as the perfect camera bag. I once spent two hours inside a B&H and tried to fit all my photo gear into more than 20 bags and still be left unsatisfied. Everyone’s needs are just too different; What works for me may not work for you.
This does not mean that you will not find something that you really like, even if it is not right. It will take some time now. We here at the WIRED gear team have tested over 30 bags of camera enthusiasts to ease your search. We’ve molded our equipment into slings, messenger bags, backpacks and cubes, we’ve also gone bag-free, all looking for a convenient way to carry everything while keeping it safe and light. These are our favorite pics.
