The backpack – compagnon on two shoulders
Black Forest Roamer – The original
The Black Forest, home of compagnon, inspired us to this classic color combo with forest green canvas and caramel brown bull leather. The natural qualities of these two fabrics are reflected in their look. Distinctive outdoor character with dapper chic. Laid back and yet very sophisticated. Its style is traditional and timelessly classy, highly likable and still luxurious. The essence of compagnon and its heritage. The coolest camera backpack there is.
The style icon reinventing itself
Never out of place, always dapper & stylish, laid back and smart at the same time. Right in the center of the city or in a base camp next to a mountain lake, it will amaze you with its functionality and incomparable style. We’ve brought all that to one amazing product blending authentic Scotland canvas and naturally tanned German bull leather. The holy grail of natural materials, turned into a legend by amazing craftsmanship. One of the key ‘features’ of the backpack is its understatement. Impossible to tell it is a photography or video backpack, pickpockets won’t notice you at all. That’s a passive security measure every compagnon bag can provide.
Subtle ergonomics enabling you to do your best
To be truly creative, you have to keep moving. And be agile if necessary. That’s the way to find amazing angles, awesome frames and views. The thick padded shoulder straps and the back panel are made from signature compagnon bull leather, feel incredibly soft while being durable. Even if the backpack is fully loaded it carries with ease and comfort. The adjustable chest strap just as the optional waistbelt keeps it securely attached to your body in any position. You could jump through hoops all day, go for land speed records on your bike or climb perilous cliffs.
Details making a big difference
Not only does the backpack offer a total of 5 individually sized net pockets which are perfect to keep travel documents, cash, smartphones, keys, batteries, filters and more organized. Two of these pockets feature a velcro rear side so they can be positioned and or detached according to your requirements. This way you’ll always have a neat case for small items you can put in your pocket in a second. Same goes for the included memory card holder. Its slots are specifically marked to distinguish between full and empty cards. So when it’s editing time one grab will get you all the results from your shoot. If you prefer to do the edit right where you are, there is a separate padded compartment that will carry most laptops, like a Macbook Pro up to 15 inch size.
Experience the extraordinary
Besides its timeless, cool look the backpack blends European craftsmanship, naturally & traditionally tanned bull leather from Northern Germany and historic, authentic waxed Canvas from Scotland. The very kind of canvas that has been used by the British Royal Navy since the 18th century, when the water resistance and ruggedness of this fabric helped conquering the seas. Combined with durable hooks and rings made from aluminium as well as the signature stainless steel COBRA rolltop buckle made by premium Austrian manufacturer AustriAlpin, the backpack can be your companion for years and decades to come. No matter where the wind will take you. Compared to other customary products compagnon canvas is sized to roughly double thickness so you won’t ever have to avoid a rain shower or everyday strain. All outside zippers are made by prime manufacturer YKK and feature a water resistant coating. Our compagnon canvas and leather will retain a beautiful, unique patina reflecting on its use and the adventures you’ve been on together. The nylon belts boast military specs in tear resistance and durability.
Function blended into design
This camera backpack will not limit you to one single tripod or tent mount on its floor but also offers additional transport straps on the right side. So there’s plenty of storage for a second tripod, especially if you add the optional tripod quiver to the mix. But you could also fit water bottles or other bulky equipment. The incredible versatility of the rolltop itself provides you with a third way to carry your tripod. Simply roll it around the tripod and secure it with the nylon strap and COBRA buckle. Alternatively you could remove the detachable padded separator between the rolltop storage and the main storage compartment. This way you could store delicate items inside the bag, even if the are much bigger than the main storage itself. The rolltop itself is perfect to carry jackets, dry backup clothing, extra shoes and or camping utensils. Even if you’re only able to fold the opening once 8 sewn in magnets make sure the opening will latch automatically and no rain can make its way inside.
