Aside from the two cameras and additional lenses, you can fit other important items in the bag such as filters, flashes and a tripod. Basically everything that you might need for a shoot can be fitted in this bag.

It is made up of durable nylon and polyester and comes with a rain cover. The nylon-polyester material is tough enough to withstand daily use and external elements, keeping your gear safe from dirt, dust, and water.

To double the water protection for your delicate gear, the rain cover serves as a removable accessory that you can put on in case of heavy downpour to keep your gear extra protected.

You can rest assured that your gear will enjoy maximum protection from the weather and the environment with the tough material that is used, along with the extra rain cover.

When it’s not raining you can conveniently store the rain cover on the underside of the bag, which has an allocated storage space for the rain cover. 

This keeps the wet rain cover and its drippings away from the gear to ensure their dryness and protection. The toughness of the nylon material ensures that no matter how much you use it every day, your pack will survive the test of time.

Inside the pack are thick and customizable cushion dividers. The thickness makes sure that your gear is well-cushioned so that they do not knock against each other.

The customizability ensures that you can secure a snug fit for all of your equipment at all times so that they do not move around within the bag, which could cause damage, scratches, dents and cracks.

Also, because the cushion dividers are customizable, it doesn’t matter if you have small or large parts to stack because you can easily adjust the foam dividers to the right fit. 

You can be assured that the pack will keep your gear in place at all times even as you move about.

Padded shoulder straps make sure that you are comfortable carrying the pack no matter how long and no matter what your activity is. You can count on the Acuvar DSLR Camera Backpack not to dig into your shoulders whenever you load it with all your gear.

Aside from the padded shoulder straps, it has gone on further in securing your comfort by having waist and chest straps that balance the weight throughout the torso, from the shoulders to the hips. This way, you will not feel extensive pressure on a single point on the body since it is well distributed.

This causes you to feel less strained and less fatigued when carrying the pack, especially after prolonged periods of using it fully loaded with heavy gear.

It is ergonomically designed with your health taken under consideration. You can experience comfort like no other when wearing this pack as you work.

Despite the Acuvar DSLR Camera Backpack’s wonderful features, there is one fatal flaw that a few previous users have noted – its zipper. It seems to have been tailored in such a way that even when the zip is fully closed, the bottom edge can simply come undone and the entire zipper unravels itself.

The position of the contents and the zipper is such that if it does come undone, all of the contents have a tendency to fall out. That would be a disaster for most professional photographers who have to carry a bunch of expensive camera material around.


Despite the zipper issue, the Acuvar DSLR Camera Backpack could still be worth a shot since there have only been a handful of such complaints and most buyers rave about it. It is made up of tough material, reinforced with a rain cover, comes with adjustable compartments and looks nice to boot.
