Multi-day backpacks have been an increasingly popular focus for camera bag manufacturers; they’re big, modular, increasing stylish and always taunted by the coolest of the photographic community.
Having watched the live press launch a few months back, the Wandrd Fernweh seemed to instantly fit the bill. I was sold, on principle at least, to this new camera backpack that was being modelled and explained by a group of individuals who oozed a relaxed and chilled disposition that I can only aspire to.
This travel-inspired company knew their stuff and the new camera backpack was to my surprise exactly what I was looking for. I didn’t realise I needed a travel camera backpack especially during lockdown, but the Fernwah looked amazing.
At the time of the press launch, I might not have been only able to leave the house other than for a bit of exercise, but with this bag, or at least the thought of it, I could dream of the future.
I was sold, but as is so often the way with new kit, I had to wait.
As it happened that wait was a few months, and by that time the bright, warm summer days had passed, and it was now cold and wet, although I was free to travel as I wished.
Here it was, the bag that I was so excited about, the one that had inspired dreams of travel. Despite the weather beating down, the difference between now and the bright warm summer days so different, when it came to the bag, it didn’t disappoint – this bag is stunning.
Available in two sizes small/medium and medium/large, both feature near-identical designs.
The bag that arrived with me was the Medium/Large, featuring plenty of capacity for my camera, a few lenses, waterproof groundsheet, Jetboil and enough food to keep me going for a few hours.
It’s Autumn/Winter, so I’m aiming at a long hike rather than an overnight wild camping trip, it’s far too cold and wet for that at the moment.
