Digital Camera World Verdict

Despite having a custom-made GoPro mount on a shoulder strap and zones dedicated to GoPro accessories,at its core the Daytripper is a compact and well-designed backpack for a day out, albeit with plenty of room for batteries, memory cards and even a laptop. However, it’s build quality and compatibility with a hydration bladder that really convinces us that this is a serious product, and not just a brand extension.

Does anyone need a GoPro-branded backpack right now? This 15-litre camera bag has a built-in mount for any GoPro. It adds custom-made compartments for GoPro gear and much more besides. But is the GoPro Daytripper a bland GoPro-branded ‘lifestyle’ accessory or a must-have for shooting in the great outdoors?

With the GoPro Hero 9 Black now on sale, and the GoP getting on for being a year  GoPro Hero 8 now reduced in price, the Daytripper a direct replacement for the GoPro Seeker bag. The GoPro Daytripper is available now with a starting price of $99.99 / £99 / AUS$169.95.
