Our Rover Pro AW technical pack was built for carrying a large load of camera and camping gear to the backcountry. So you can imagine the pleasant surprise we got when Rebecca Bathory – a UK fashion, celebrity and editorial photographer who typically uses camera rollers on her studio shoots – used it as her mainstay bag as she traveled to Poland.
A few weeks back, we chatted with Rebecca about her abandoned places and cultural memory photography and book project. She started her travels in Chernobyl in Central Ukraine (you can read more about that portion of her trip here).
The latest leg of her photographic journey took her to remote and historically significant sites in Lower Silesia, including the Liban Quarry and an abandoned chapel.
She carried a LOT of camera and personal gear – a full range of bodies, lenses, accessories, a tripod, camping supplies and plenty of creature comforts. It all fit in the Rover Pro 45L AW.
Rebecca gives a complete account of what she carried, how she packed, the way she traveled and the Rover Pro AW features she most appreciated (including the comfortable, trampoline-style suspension system) in her blog. We love her impressions in words and images…and hope you do, too.
