Late last year, we launched the Rover Pro AW series and since then we’ve seen photographers take these bags all over the world. We recently spent time with Photographer and Filmmaker, Corey Rich to talk about what it’s like to carry the Rover Pro 45L AW on an assignment. Below are a few of his impressions of his full day with our mountain-stye, technical photo pack.
A Day in the Life: Corey Rich, Photographer/Filmmaker
This is the first overnight backpack that allows me to go into the woods or into the backcountry. It allows me to carry all of the necessary equipment I need to be comfortable outside. And to carry all of the equipment I need to be a photographer and filmmaker in those environments.
I like working with a camera bag that has the functionality of an outdoor pack. It really carries like an outdoor industry backpack. And it packs like one, too.
Built for Comfort
A comfortable fit is really important to me as I work. This pack is ultra lightweight with durable fabrics. And the design features really allow me to adapt the pack to my body. I appreciate the hydration pocket that lets me move quickly, but maintain hydration.
A multifunctional camera pack like this works well in the backcountry. I actually can add and subtract compartments for cameras depending on how much equipment I need.
Technical, Mountain-Style Pack
These are the types of things I expect from any outdoor pack: high-performance technical fabrics, a comfortable suspension system, easy access to hydration, and multi-functional storage space. Now we have this in the photography world with the Rover Pro AW. This makes my job easier so I can focus on the task at hand.
