Borealis 35L Camera Backpack
Built for rugged outdoor photo adventures, the Borealis combines the protection and organization of a camera bag with the comfort and efficiency of a technical backpack. On the trails, slopes, and far off lands, it offers the best of both worlds for any camera intensive pursuit.
The outdoors can be hard on your camera gear. Whether you’re heading out for a shoot, or just bringing your camera gear along, the Borealis is the DSLR camera backpack built to move smoothly and safely through the backcountry. With separate camera and laptop compartments, extra storage space for your 10 essentials, and an included waterproof rain cover, the camera pack keeps your gear accessible while taking on the elements.
As part of the Andy Mann Signature Series, the Borealis was tested in some of the Earth's harshest climates. Mountainsmith pro and forerunner in the world of adventure film and ocean conservation photography, co-designer Andy Mann is an experienced climber, diver, and arctic explorer whose imagery is helping tell the story of our rapidly changing planet. His adventures take him to all 7 continents for National Geographic Magazine, National Geographic’s Pristine Seas, and more.
