The Wolffepack is unlike any photo backpack
you’ve ever seen. While carrying it, push a button
on the strap to release the Capture from your
back, pull it to the front of your body and access
the goods inside. To keep it in that position
securely, you can also hook it across your
chest through webbing loops. The bag remains
tethered to the shoulder straps by three strong
Dyneema-based cords, which are rated to hold
up to 661 pounds—though good luck lugging
that much around. There’s a removable camera
pod that can hold a DSLR with lens attached,
two spare lenses and a flash. Carry your tripod
in the bag’s exterior loop clip and a 15-inch
laptop in the interior padded sleeve.
