It’s not your traditional camera bag.

Filming a backcountry snowboard flick? Use the camera bag designed by riders, for riders: Burton Zoom Pack [28L]

It features a vertical snowboard strap and an external shovel compartment. The backpack is intuitive, well designed, and evenly distributes the weight.

However, this pack is amazing off the mountains as well. It fits a 13 inch Macbook in the laptop compartment sleeve. It is also loaded with pockets and useful compartments for your SD cards, film and batteries.

We took it on our five month journey around fifty states, and found this pack to be most important piece of equipment we brought. It kept our batteries, cameras, and electronics away from the elements.

It’s made out of high density nylon and has padded customizable internal compartments. In other words, it’s mountain worthy.

Concerned about weight? It weighs about 4.5 LBS without your gear. If you’re packing more weight, the plush ergonomic shoulder harness and back panel keeps your camera gear supported to your back.

Minor setback: It’s too cool for school.

Cost: $130
