WANDRD’s PRVKE 31L Backpack

The smaller pack that fits everything you could ask for.

Taking in the sights with the backpack.

Fits snug on the whole back body, no worries.

Good for trails, or for everyday commutes.

To Know:

This PRVKE Pack’s innovative design and top-tier materials make it an awards-winning camera bag. It can be used for various means of photography, travel, daily use, or trail blazers. It’s been recommended by big-named publications, such as USA Today, Forbes, and National Geographic.

Though the pack is complex and detailed, the pack’s instructions makes it easier to pack smarter and fit all that you need in this compact-yet-durable backpack. The system comes with nearly every accessory you could imagine, making it the perfect pack for doing all that you ask for.

The pack’s technical design is what some might call “out of the world”. You might never see a smaller bag fit this much, look this sexy, and inspire you to carry all that you need to more places. This 31L pack does just that. It comes with an includes rainfly for extra weatherproof protection anda camera cube so you no longer have an excuse to not go out and shoot.

What We Love:

1. The Camera Cube

Wndrd’s multi-purpose camera cubes hold some of the best protection system known to the camera gear world. Both bomb proof and versatile, these cubes give you full customization and confidence.

2. How Much It Packs

Sure, the pack is only 31L, but due to its highly customizable packing system, you can fit just about anything you want.

3. Tripod Pocket

An expandable tripod / water bottle pocket makes it easy to slip in an extra tool of choice. This means I never have to stuff it in the bottom of my bag and grab it while on the go for a day of shooting.

The smaller pack that fits everything you could ask for.

This pack can be used for everyday carry, but certainly caters towards the photographer at heart. And if you don't like vowels in your brand names, WNDRD took that extra step to remove most vowels for you.

There comes two sizes: 21L or 31L with an optional camera cube system (which we personally recommend). You can keep all of our photo and computer gear organized and with the extra room to spare with the 31L bag. It has enough space for multiple camera lenses or bodies, with space for everyday gear, as well (jackes, water bottles, etc.). The tough exterior and padded interior is going to keep what's inside safe and protected.

However, this bag is rather complex. It comes with a multitude of pockets which wasn’t something I was particularly keen on at first. I’m a simple man and for people like myself who get overwhelmed by a lot of information, WANDRD performed the duty of providing instructions in a PDF (and videos!). Once I understood all the ins/outs of the bag, I grew truly impressed by all the thought and love they put into it.

It’s the toughness of an outdoors bag, the functionality of a tech bag, and love for photography all put together for the traveling creative in mind. And, it looks good.

  • Good Looking: It’s simple looking, yet complex for the people who need it to be. Sexy enough to wear to a coffee shop, or the overhead compartment in an airplane.
  • Accessibility: Features top access, side access, back access, and a concession stand style.
  • Durability: Lots of excellent external materials for strong protection. Features 1680D Ballistic Nylon, a waterproof tarpaulin, an extra rain fly just in case, and thick padding on the inside for extra gear.
  • Water-Resistant: High quality protection; tough tarp outer shell with soft tricot liner to fight back against nasty weather.

What It Fits

Truth be told, this backpack can carry an incredible amount of love and gear. It will pretty much fit anything except a cement block and even then you can customize it to fit one as such. With an external water bottle pocket, you can unzip and insert the slides right in to fit anything the size of hydroflask. Tripod buckles are clipped on both sides for easy access, as well. A front zip pocket can be used for smaller items, like charging wires or batteries. Other pockets that I’ll just put into an unordered list here:

  • Keys Pocket - Keys
  • Back Top pocket - Hard Drive
  • Back Secret pocket - Wallet, Phone, Passport
  • Rainfly Pocket - For the obvious rain fly jacket.
  • Camera Side Access Pocket - Can access this from the back which brings us to the inside…
  • Access from back - Full spread of gear
  • Camera Cube - Highly recommend grabbing this — if you order the 31L from our shop comes w/ cube which is incredibly helpful to help organize all your things with its different velcro pieces.
  • SD Cards Pocket - Battery, SD cards, etc.
  • Laptop + iPad pocket - Nice to have for large tablets or laptops.

Heavy duty waterproof zippers.

Lovely roll top with top handles for whatever kind of carry you prefer.

Back opens to the backside.

Stuff laptops in their dedicated pocket.

Cell phone pocket? Okay! Got you.

Fits cameras, lenses, gimbals, etc.
