I guess the “best” camera bag for travel photography is a personal thing, and the best camera bag for one photographer may not suit another photographer and vice versa. The best camera bag for travel photography depends on many different factors, including:
This is not an exhaustive list, and I am sure that if you take a step back and think about it for a while there will be other considerations too.
I spent a long, long time looking for a suitable camera bag for travel photography and did lots of internet research, asking questions of photography forums, reading reviews, trips to the local camera shop etc. etc.
The perfect camera bag for travel photography in my opinion:-
The camera bag I ended up buying for travel photography
After much research and looking around the camera bag I chose for travel photography was the Lowepro Inverse 200AW. This camera bag is tough durable, water proof and has loads of padding in it to keep my expensive photography equipment safe and sound. I wear this bag around my waist (I am not a fan of backpacks) where it sits nice and stable, even when fully loaded, which leaves me totally hands free.
Below is some video footage demonstrating how water proof this camera bag is, courtesy of Youtube.
The Lowepro Inverse 200 AW camera bag is the ideal camera bag for travel photography and it is one I highly recommend. Out of all the camera bags I have bought and used over the years, and I can tell you there have been a few of them, this camera bag is among my top two. It really is a great bag and if you are looking for a camera bag for your travels a bag you should definitely consider.
You can buy the Lowepro Inverse 200 AW camera bag from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and eBay.
