Digital Camera World Verdict

The Morally Toxic Valkyrie has been five years in the making, and is one of two new photo bags, the other being the Wraith messenger/sling bag. Morally Toxic is a new spin-off brand from British tripod manufacturer, 3 Legged Thing, and this bag has all of the colour and flair that we’ve come to expect from its parent company, with a wealth of clever design flourishes wrapped up in a tough yet stylish exterior. It’s comfy to wear, endlessly adaptable, and will cosset your gear in fine style. What’s not to like?

Thanks to the The Morally Toxic Valkyrie, things aren’t quite as staid as they used to be. The overwhelming majority of photo backpacks still seem to be based on the Henry Ford ethos... You can have any colour you want so long as it’s black. That’s the first rule that Morally Toxic threw out of its nearest window.
