About us

Your compagnons

Our story begins in 2009 when our founders complained about the lack of a versatile & beautiful camera bag.
A few busy years later, the first camera bag 'messenger' was launched, became a success and has been continuously improved ever since.
compagnon describes such a loyal friend that becomes an additional family member over the years.

Our roots lie in this feeling and we work daily on compagnons that can accompany you around the world every day.

What our customers say

Top backpack with ingenious carrying comfort

I love my backpack! It's super robust and fits all my equipment. (...) The carrying comfort is great for my size. Mountain hikes over many hours are no problem at all. What's more, the moisture protection is very good. However, even the backpack is not completely waterproof in continuous rain for several hours. I am absolutely convinced by the product!

The perfect backpack

I've finally found the perfect backpack, which really wasn't easy. I'm just as impressed with the carrying system as I am with the materials and the layout. With this carrying system, mountain hikes with camera equipment and lots of water are also possible. The rucksack sits really well on me despite my rather short back.

Great bag !

I waited a long time for this bag, but it was worth the wait: a real enrichment for the sling bag/backpack segment! (...) The adjustment options are varied and the carrying comfort is high. The bag can also be stabilized at the hips. The bag fits into my selection of different bags for different requirements/uses and I am happy to have a sling bag of this size!

for years of joy & true friendship
