I’m giving something away on Instagram for the first time ever!!! Thanks to Travables, creators of bags made for travelers.
As always I’m gonna be 100% straight up and honest with my review. Otherwise, what’s the point?
So let me tell you a story:
It’s rainy season in Panama, meaning each day brings sun and sweat, but you can never predict how long the sun will last.
Or how quick the rain will fall.
But so what if I get wet? I’m at the beach, right?
Normally, not a problem… except my Sony Alpha A6300, my pride and joy, is inside my bag.
Plus, I’m about three miles away from our hostel, barefoot in a field of jagged rocks, and the sky transitioned from a baby blue to an ominous gray. Insert a slew of swears here.
I scramble across the rocks, feeling mist against my face, and as soon as my feet hit the sand, break into a dead sprint toward the hostel pleading the rain to hold off.
The mist turns into chaotic raindrops, the wind picks up, and there’s another field of rocks to run through. My camera’s done for. Why didn’t I buy insurance?
I make it to the door of my room right as the thunder and lightning start. I throw open the bag, pull out my camera. It’s dry. It survived!!
That is why I like this bag. It’s not waterproof, but the canvas is pretty damn durable. It’s a solid bag for travelers– it lasted through the unexpected.
Bonus: I fit so much stuff inside– my GoPro, Sony Alpha, a zoom lens, extra camera batteries, chargers, my phone, a book, and a pair of sunglasses.
Head over to my Instagram. We’d be matching. I know you’re excited. And now you won’t bring your camera out when you know it’ll downpour.
