New WANDRD PRVKE: One of My Favorite Bags

In 2018 when I had to find a quality bag to fit all my gear in for the Falcon Heavy launch I attended with my kids I purchased a WANDRD PRVKE 31L (the biggest they made at the time) to carry all of my equipment from my car to the launch site, which took about 7 hours to reach due to the number of people there. On top of the long trek which started first thing in the morning, I also have a very bad back that constantly hurts so evenly distributing the weight of all my equipment was crucial and the WANDRD PRVKE 31L did not fail me. Now they have updated the bag with some new tweaks and the WANDRD PRVKE Lite and WANDRD PRVKE 41L sizes being added to the lineup. This update has me considering the 41L now since I could have used a little more room in the bag and almost exclusively shoot GFX, but like to bring my X gear with me too.

The WANDRD PRVKE is great for hiking and it’s the bag I use to walk down to the beach at night when I want to photograph lightning since the bag does a good job of protecting my cameras and lenses during the walk back if it is raining and I find that I’m not in pain the next day from lugging around too much weight. I don’t quite pack it to the extent above for these kinds of events, but you can get a substantial amount of equipment in these bags comfortably, which is the most important thing for me since my back can put me out of commission for months if I overdo it and in 2018 I was carrying around two kids in addition to all of the above equipment so I would say the bag saved me from having a miserable month.

I know other companies make quality backs, but at this point, they would have to prove to me that they can do as good of a job of distributing weight as the WANDRD PRVKE for me to consider purchasing them. If you have back pain you know that once you find something that doesn’t add to your pain you become a fan for life and the WANDRD PRVKE is that for me.
