Photo Equipment Backpack Review

You are a great photographer, and finding a location for taking brilliant photographs is what you do best. Drive a few hundred miles, hike 30 minutes into the mountains, tip toe to the edge of a cliff that overlooks the ocean, wait until the exact moment the pelican dives for dinner, and voila! You have captured the magnificence of nature in one brief second. Yes, you are good at what you do. Now shouldn’t you have an equipment bag that works with you to give you a harmonious shoot every time you leave the studio? Of course you should! Good thing TubeTape now sells one.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you the King Kong II equipment backpack. Let me tell you, I have tested this thing out, and if you do any sort of traveling with your camera equipment you are going to want this backpack along with you. First of all, it is super comfortable. It’s lightweight, and has soft padded straps that are ergonomically designed to distribute weight which means you can shoot for longer periods of time without any discomfort. Second, it’s durable. Like, really durable. I dragged this thing through the mud, bounced it off rocks, zipped and unzipped it probably a hundred times, and it is still together. Not even a rip in the fabric. Fabulous! Third, it’s made from waterproof fabric and in case you are thinking of shooting in Thailand during monsoon season, it even comes with a built in rain cover to give you extra protection. Fourth, the backpack has several compartments all padded on the sides with thick foam so you can fit all your chargers, flashes, memory cards, ect. without worrying about things smashing together and breaking when your running from that lion in Africa you thought was sleeping. The compartments are even removable so videographers, this will work for you too!

This backpack, as you can see from the pictures, has multiple openings too, so everything is accessible. And that is a huge thing for me, because I HATE digging around trying to find something that got stuffed into the bottom of my pack. As photographers, you know that timing is everything, so you need the security of knowing where your equipment is and that you can access it at any time.  The external dimensions in inches are : 11.81 x 8.27 x 18.11, so you can see it is not a clunky, over-sized pack. It feels great, looks good, protects your equipment and is a must-have for serious professional photographers. This is a great buy, and sells now over at

    Backpacks are the way to go. I’m usually carrying light kits etc. and having my most expensive asset on my back secure with all my stuff saves a lot of frustration.

    I’ve been thinking about getting something along these lines for some time now. My only concern would be that I am a bigger guy (xxl). Do you think the straps would adjust to fit me comfortably?

      I’m about 6 ft, 185 lbs and it adjusts to me with plenty of room left in the straps for further length. It’s a good fit. You shouldn’t have a problem. It is named the King Kong II after all. : )
