When you think Thule, what do you think of? Probably roof racks and bike racks. But did you know they also make some totally bags? The Thule Perspektiv is a camera bag that carries any of the camera gear you need for a day in the field, plus anything else. At first glance, it bears a striking resemblance to a true long-distance trekking backpack. It’s made from a heavy-duty nylon outer fabric, in a sleek, upright shape without any bulky corners or pockets sticking out. All the critical seams have been taped for durability and to keep water out, and it features what Thule calls SafeZone Construction, giving the most secure close and waterproof seal possible to keep your gear safe.
Inside, there is room for two large DSLR bodies, 6 or 7 lenses, and there’s an internal laptop compartment for editing and uploading in the field. You can carry your tripod either on the front or on the side, and two stash pockets on the front make shoving accessories and gear at the ready easy.
The Thule Perspektiv is designed to go anywhere and everywhere you do; it’s the standard size for airplane carry-on, and the two shoulder straps are coupled with a waist strap for steadiness and stability.
And since it comes from Thule, known for their quality and craftsmanship, you can expect this bag to be of the utmost quality. It’s easily one of the coolest and best looking camera bags we’ve used. Thule also backs it up with a 25-year warranty.
