compagnon The Backpack Overview

  • 1Description

Carry your photography equipment, laptop, and more in The Backpack for Camera & Laptop from Compagnon. This low-profile red backpack with black details holds two professional DSLR bodies with attached lenses, an additional 2-3 lenses, and an external flash. A dedicated laptop sleeve in the rear of the bag holds a tablet or 15" laptop. Two large touch-fastening pads and eight compact padded partitions can be assembled within the bag to your liking. Ten touch-fastening leather straps provide further protection as they can be positioned wherever you need.

For further organization of your smaller accessories, a total of five mesh pockets keep your smartphone, wallet, and keys easily accessible while you're on the go. An organizational panel on the laptop compartment holds two of these mesh pockets as well as memory card compartments featuring slots that distinguish whether the cards are empty or full. Two exterior zippered pockets store additional accessories. Looping straps on the bottom of the bag can easily carry a tripod without taking up valuable space inside the bag's main compartment.

The partition between the bottom of the roll-top and main storage compartment can be removed quickly, allowing for an even greater main storage space. If separate spaces are desired, the roll-top space provides room for clothes, shoes, or other items. The padded shoulder straps and top grab handle provide easy carrying methods when you're on the go while the buffalo leather and waxed canvas will withstand the toll daily use can often take on your bag.

    compagnon The Backpack Reviews

    The Backpack for Camera & Laptop (Red / Black) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality and well thought out design. I came across this backpack while searching for a suitable carrying option for my Leica SL and grip and my 24-90 and 90-280, (and space for the upcoming 16-35 Vario next year), a Lee filter set, a 15 MBP. a Gitzo Traveler Series 1 tripod, accessories, with space for misc. non photographic items. My criteria was it needed to have padded inserts for protection, fully customizable, plenty of space, offer some element protection and to look good in both urban and outdoor environments. I tried bags from different companies but some none of them met all the above requirements. Some very good ones like the Peak Design Everyday Backpack in 20L, the WNDRD Prvke, the Vanguard Alta Sky 51D, and others. Enter the compagnon backpack. Very roomy and stylish bag in waxed canvas and leather, with enough space for all my items with PLENTY of dividers to accomplish this. They even include leather straps with hook and loop material at the end to keep the items in each compartment in place. They use quality materials and buckles ( they even include a COBRA Austrialpin buckle to secure the roll top ). External zippered compartments for storage (a little tight with limited use) but there nonetheless. The compartment for my MBP is roomy yet snug enough with a velcro strap to secure it in place. They include three hook and loop zippered, mesh accessory pockets for small items. There are straps at the bottom and one side to attach tripods, or any other similar item to it. The back is made of leather and it has ventilation channels, and even while fully loaded, it is comfortable to use. ( Waist straps are optional and not included with bag) The materials and padding do add a little bit of weight but in the end, the weight itself is mostly the equipment that we choose to put in there, but there is reassurance that the padding do and will protect it. I chose the blue canvas, black leather combination, for a low key look, very stylish and does not scream photography bag but it rather looks like a well appointed urban backpack that could fit in well in most situations. There are other color combinations (and in the company web site as well) Yet, the bag is not perfect either, as there's no such thing as a perfect bag, and could have benefited from a side opening to quickly get to your gear without putting it down, a rain cover, and the waist straps to have been included in the price, but all in all, for me, it does serve the purpose intended.....for now. There aren't many outlets to purchase compagnon products in the US, asides from B&H, which is one of the best, if not THE best electronic store I have ever dealt with; they are not cheap, but quality comes at a cost. I must also point out that I have also purchased other accessories from their website in Germany and the shopping experience was also very pleasant and shipping to the States was reasonably fast.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart quickly, terrible customer service. I was really, really excited when I got the chance this summer to finally buy a compagnon, which from my research looked like one of the highest quality and most attractive camera bags I could get.  Imagine my surprise when it started literally ripping at the seams under extremely light duty less than two months after using it.  A few weeks after the first tears started on the leather top handle, one of the whole back straps broke loose from the back.  This happened with a GH5 and a couple of Lumix lenses in it, nothing heavy.  On an airplane, with other bags, in the middle of a trip, this was a real hassle, and I was extremely disappointed.  I wrote compagnon, who asked me to send the bag in.  I did so, ate the shipping (they questioned me on why it was so expensive) and bought another bag for the meantime.  This started a two month long saga of laid-back customer service which has now morphed into straight up insulting customer service as I still dont have the bag back.  Ive got $650 into this thing now and absolutely nothing to show for it.  Stick with Wandrd, Shimoda, or Thinktank...not as showy but they dont fall apart on the road.  Ive spent tens of thousands of dollars at B&H over the years and this is my first negative review.  Hopefully it is also the last!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! I have owned several photo bags, and this is by far the best. It is indeed very expensive! However, it is so well crafted, and handsome that I can say it is the best bag I have owned so far. It is especially outstanding if you carry a lot of gear as it is very roomy. It is gorgeous!
