deuter camera backpacks for professional photography equipment

Hiking, backpacking or cycling – a camera helps you hold on to those outdoor moments for longer, and share them with those who couldn’t join you. With a camera backpack you can carry your camera gear securely and in comfort. At deuter, we’ve equipped our hiking backpacks with camera compartments for your photographic equipment.

The result: a perfectly fitting back system, optimum carrying comfort, and fully padded photo gear compartments for SLRs, digital cameras, lenses and other photographic equipment from tripods to filters and reflectors, spare batteries and memory cards. When it came to designing the internal compartments and the backpack features, we used the advice of professional mountain athletes and photographers to help us create a fusion between a hiking backpack and a camera bag.

His fascinating images, lectures, books and films have moved people all over the world. For the new deuter Jaypack the world-famous photographer returned to his hometown of Gersthofen in Germany – which is also home to deuter.

From mind the bumb

Innovative construction, well-thought-out design and theoretical preventive measures for every worst-case scenario can only be proven to be effective – or not – in practice. Which is why deuter has always tested its new products on athletes and mountain guides, putting them through their paces. For the new Jaypack 34+ camera backpack, however, we needed a different kind of specialist team to test it out. 

Camera bags for backpacks

At the heart of our photo backpacks, we have the protective padded inserts: the Camera Box One and Camera Box Two. They are responsible for ensuring your gear is not damaged in transit – whether it’s through knocks, dust or dirt. If you already have a backpack you use for hiking, mountaineering, or mountain biking, then you can use one of these units to convert it into a camera backpack. And you can use the camera bag on its own without the backpack – keeping your photo gear padded and secure.
