Battle The Ground With Bodypack Battle Series
Travel and photography are two things that you just can’t really separate. I once traveled by train and tried not to take pictures, but I just couldn’t help myself and grabbed my camera and started taking pictures.
Last year, I got my first camera, like a real camera. As soon as I got it, my desire to capture moments, taking pictures is getting bigger. Almost everyday, I never left without my camera. I am not a professional photographer though, but you are never too old to start learning something new. The needed to bring my camera around with me follows with the needed to have a good backpack that can support me to bring my camera and other stuffs along with it.
Bodypack Battle Ground 1.0
Known as one of the most lifestyle fashion product in Indonesia, Bodypack gives the dynamic and creative youngsters who loves bringing notebooks, cameras and gadgets along with them. The backpack was really simple. It fits all my work stuffs like a laptop and a few clothes. The clean, uncluttered exterior gives this pack a vibe that’s both urban-smart and backcountry-savvy. It’s also remarkably abrasion-resistant. A water-resistant, panel-loading zipper opens the backpack like a roll-top bag, which makes it more travel-friendly than a typical top-loader.
Even though the backpanel has no air channels; my back got sweaty on hot days. I think it was because there is a laptop compartment on the backpanel. I used this backpack for the first time when I went to South Korea for 10 days road trip early 2017. As my thinking was looking for a camera backpack, but also fits my other stuffs like a laptop, clothes, and so on.
Part of the main compartment in the bag is used to put a laptop-size 14 inch or less. It has compartments to store MirrorLess or DSLR camera with a removable-pairs.

It has a place for a tripod at the bottom of the bag.

Every move has a story
I recommend this backpack to daily backpackers better, especially for those who needs to bring camera compartment everyday. I used it for 10 days road trip around South Korea, 2 days backpacking around Singapore, 4 days backpacking around Bali and 3 days in Yogyakarta. The bag went with me on a long walk and I was fine at the beginning, but because I brought other things than just a camera with 2 lenses and a laptop, when I reached 6 km, the bag was starting to feel heavy. Though I was only adding some toiletries and few clothes. Note that I ONLY brought this backpack for those road trip backpacking I mentioned above.
As I was doing street photography, It was really good because it made me easy when I need to grab my camera, I just swing the bag, open the camera compartment which located in the side of the backpack. The infront pocket was almost useless (at least for me) since it was too tight made it hard to add item in it. However, everything was nice as long as you don’t carry other stuffs that will make the bag heavier.
There is also Battle Jungle 1.0 with the same design and compartments like Battle Ground 1.0, but different color and looks. Both of them are perfect for photo hunters.
