Digital Camera World Verdict

The Gitzo Adventury is the ideal companion for landscape and wildlife photographers who need to carry more than just their camera gear. A sizable roll top provides ample room for hiking essentials, which not every outdoorsy rucksack provides. Add to that a sturdy, comfortable build and suitable weatherproofing, and both 30L and 45L variants come highly recommended for rambling photographers.

Our search for the best camera bag continues with the Gitzo Adventury. As the suitably outdoorsy name suggests, if you live in walking boots and eat Kendal Mint Cake like it’s going out of fashion, this is probably the bag for you.

The Adventury stars on our best camera backpack in 2020 buyer’s guide, and it’s easy to see why. This premium rucksack is built specifically for use on the trail, and boasts ample storage for both camera gear and hiking essentials. It features a wealth of compartments, and the internal dividers can be removed so that the Adventury doubles as a generic hiking backpack, too.
