Brenthaven, a leader in hardcore casing for laptops and devices, recently made the jump to camera bags in a collection that continues their focus on providing the best protection possible. The complete collection includes a lens case, holster, waist pack, shoulder case, messenger bag and backpack—just about the gamut of any photographer's lugging needs. In our hands-on test of the backpack, the feature that stood out most was Brenthaven's brand-new "BX2 Xtreme" foam that provides burly, lightweight padding for cameras and lenses.
The organization of the backpack includes a customizable main cavity with front and side accessibility as well as a top area for smaller stowage. Additional flat sleeves provide storage for smaller items and a side loop allows for tripod attachment. One novel design detail is the side access to a laptop sleeve separate from the main compartments.
The backpack is also built for the elements, with a stowable rainfly and gray exterior that resists water and keeps compartments cool. Overall, the pack makes a stellar option for multiple lens photographers looking for impact protection above all else. As an added bonus, all Brenthaven products come with a lifetime guarantee and are sustainably produced.
The BX2 Backpack can be found along with the rest of the collection at the Brenthaven online shop.
