So you’ve got all your tech gear and you’re ready to document your next great travel adventure. The only problem? You have no idea how to carry it all. Don’t worry – we’ve spied the options and narrowed it down to this list. Here are the seven best camera bags for under $200.
1. Waterproof Backpack With Cover
This versatile and convertible backpack works as a bookbag for school and a camera bag for adventures. All you have to do to convert is unzip the middle compartment. Plus the removable/customizable padded divider holds two cameras and up to five lenses. The waterproof material, inner bag, and rain cover keep your gear safe, while the rugged design adds a handsome dose of style to your carrying case.
2. Oxford Anti-Shock Camera Bag
This bag isn’t watertight, but it does come with a waterproof cover. The padded insert camera partition comes with four removable/adjustable Velcro-taped cushions so that you can convert it into five small partitions, each large enough to hold standard zoom lens. The padded insert absorbs shock and separates your camera lenses from the rest of your gear. It also has a computer compartment that can fit a 15″ laptop, for easy editing on the go.
3. Waterproof Nylon Camera Bag With Leather Belt
This bag is crafted from waterproof nylon and outfitted with both a leather belt and adjustable straps for a more comfortable carrying experience. It has a concealed rain cover, and can fit a 15″ laptop inside the main compartment. A ton of external and internal pockets add storage space, while the leather accents give this bag a contemporary edge.
4. Anti-Theft Professional Gear Backpack
An ergonomic design, adjustable shoulder straps and wide, adjustable waist and chest straps combine with breathable mesh fabric to make this bag extra comfortable. Two adjustable buckle straps on the side of the bag make it hard to snatch off your shoulders. The dual layer design, meantime, offers easy organization for your gear. The top can hold a camera and up to four lenses. The bottom layer features a portable camera insert box that fits a camera and two lenses. A padded compartment on the back can hold a 15″ laptop, and you can squeeze the small stuff like batteries, cords and a phone into the two compartment and two side pockets. It features a hidden pocket at the bottom for your tripod, as well as a rain cover.
5. National Geographic Africa Medium Backpack
How could we not recommend a camera bag from National Geographic? The upper compartment is designed for personal items like clothes, a water bottle and your snacks. Put your tripod in the lateral extractable pocket, then adjust the shoulder straps for maximum comfort while you explore. The padded, breathable fabric on the back ensures cool comfortable carrying, while the durable and heavy duty material lets you beat the bag in without worrying about damage.
6. Booq Slimpack
Great things fit into slim bags. This dual strap backpack measures 16″ tall and just 11″ wide, but it allows both rear and top access to the camera compartment, and can accommodate up two cameras, four mid-size lenses, one large zoom lens and a 10″ tablet. The side panels unzip to hold your sunglasses, keys, water bottle and phone.
