One of the things I’ve really struggled with, as an amateur photographer, is to find a reliable camera bag for my gear. So far, I tried four different bags, sling and backpacks, and they’ve all failed.
I finally found a camera bag I like! The Zecti Backpack. I bought it in June 2018, and it has been holding really well. In short, this camera bag exceeded my expectations and held up to a lot of abuse during a recent 8-day trip to China.
7 Reasons why I Like my Zecti Backpack
- This is a compact camera backpack, and the size is ideal for the amount of items I need to pack: DSLR camera with lens attached, three (3) additional lenses, two (2) extra camera batteries, USB cables, cleaning supplies, and two (2) external charging batteries
- In addition to the camera gear listed above, there is a compartment where I can slide my 15″ Dell laptop.
- The upper compartment provides additional room for personal items for a day-trip or snacks.
- For added security and ease of access, the camera gear goes in the bottom compartment and accessed from the back of the backpack.
- The back, of the backpack, and shoulder straps are well padded. In addition, the waist and chest straps provide much needed support for the camera bag when fully loaded.
- During my trip to China it rained quite a bit, and the canvas material and rain cover stood up to the test.
- There is no shortage of pockets. They are well distributed and accessible from inside and outside the bag.
I bought this camera bag from Amazon. And, with more than 6 months since owning it, I am still in love with my Zecti camera backpack. My only suggestions to make this an even more valuable camera bag are:
- Lighten the weight a bit. For the size, it is slightly heavy.
- Enlarge one of the side pockets. You can only accommodate a skinny water bottle.
- Provide more color options. While I like the standard tan/green, it would be great to offer more color options such as navy or black.
