Having the right bag is an absolute necessity when you’re carrying hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of equipment. Luckily, my all-time favorite camera bag is on Amazon this week in its big . 25% off as part of, I picked up one of these hex bags a few months ago and it has become my go-to for both leisurely photo walks and more in-depth excursions. These bags come in three sizes to fit your needs, no matter what kind of shoot you’re on.
If you’re like me and get annoyed with having to take off the backpack and route every time you want to swap lenses, these sling bags are perfect. They come in two different sizes, the Ranger and the Ranger Mini.
I have the Mini as my daily carrier, filled with Canon DSLRs and a spare lens. They both fit, but it’s very snug, so I’d recommend upgrading to the full-size Ranger if you want to pack anything more than that. Both of these slings have a single, crossbody strap with buckles for easy access, as well as adjustable straps on the bag to make sure none of your gear is snuck in when you’re on the go.
If you’re heading out for big shoots that require a lot of gear, the Hex Cinema is what you need. This camera backpack has a fully customizable interior compartment with removable dividers so you can build it around the exact equipment you’ll need. With three points of access, it’s a lot easier to swap out lenses and cameras than a typical top-down backpack. There are plenty of small pockets to fit your phone, laptop or any other miscellaneous gear you might need.
