Photo bag manufacturers think from the photo side when developing a backpack. With the PHOTOHIKER 44, we thought the other way around, and first developed an uncompromising carrying system, then integrated photo functionality.
The PHOTOHIKER 44 by COSYSPEED is a novelty in the field of photo backpacks, because its carrying system is normally used in trekking backpacks by outdoor specialist VAUDE. Nevertheless, with up to two removable photo compartments and a compartment for laptops up to 16" in size, the backpack offers enough space for photographers' equipment. Its construction is specifically designed for hybrid use. Thus, the PHOTOHIKER 44 can be used either completely as a photo backpack, completely as a trekking backpack or half of it. The carrying system has a very well ventilated Aeroflex 3D back system with integrated metal frame. Comfortable ErgoShape straps and the adjustable back length allow comfortable carrying and easy adjustment to different body sizes even on long tours. It is made of robust NYLON materials and for heavy rain the splash-proof backpack comes with a rain cover in the bottom.
Photo equipment well protected
The photo functionality of the PHOTOHIKER 44 is provided by the included PHOTO CUBE XL, which is equipped with robust wooden plates on the sides. This protects expensive cameras and lenses from e.g. a tripod in the side pocket. It accommodates system cameras and medium-sized DSLRs as well as standard and telephoto lenses and accessories. In its inner flap, small accessories can be stowed in zippered pockets. The optionally available PHOTO CUBE M fits into the upper compartment of the PHOTOHIKER 44 and can thus increase the capacity for photographic equipment.
In the back part there is a padded zipper compartment that can hold a MacBookPro 16". Side pockets and bottom are made of rubberized material and protect against sharp corners on the tripod and moisture. Its 44-liter capacity is also perfect for taking it onboard an airplane as carry-on baggage under IATA regulations.
Ready for the green button
The PHOTOHIKER 44 is manufactured by VAUDE in compliance with high environmental standards. It fulfills the criteria for the stately seal for environmentally friendly production and fair working conditions Green Button (https://www.gruener-knopf.de), and will go into certification in spring 2020. COSYSPEED only cooperates with partners who comply with high environmental and working standards and must be certified, e.g. according to SGS (www.sgs.com). COSYSPEED GmbH is also involved in development projects in Africa and has lens bags, for example, manufactured there. VAUDE, with its high standards of quality, sustainability and fair treatment of partners and their employees, fits well with these requirements.
