June 15, 2023

Professional-grade 35L camera pack takes performance on the road

TUCSON, ARIZONA USA/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Armored and agile, the NOMATIC MCKINNON CAMERA PACK 35L turns photo and video sessions into more consistent results. That’s the reason INVESTMENT GRADE GEAR has awarded it ‘Made the Grade’ status after multi-scenario evaluation.

‘Here’s a pack that defies travel abuse, stays supremely organized, and is worth its weight and price,’ according to INVESTMENT’s founder and lead evaluator Peter Reese. ‘If you need more predictable camera access, as well as one-pack travel for short outings, this one stands apart from less robust options.’

The ability to create premium content with mirrorless cameras, drones, action cameras, and upgraded smartphones is at the heart of Nomatic’s camera pack offerings. At the 35L size, there’s room for up to four days of clothing as well as outerwear to tackle rapidly-changing weather scenarios. All with an easy-carry backpack design grounded in rugged materials and expedition-grade construction.

Observes James Atkin, Nomatic’s VP of Marketing: ‘We’re honored to receive the ‘Made The Grade’ designation! The McKinnon camera collection was specifically built for durability and functionality. Peter Reese and crew really put the bag through the test!’

INVESTMENT GRADE GEAR, rooted in 50 years of adventure experience and outdoor journalism, selects individual pieces of gear for video reviews: Nothing chosen is part of a traditional gear round-up, but merits special consideration for performance, lasting value, and embracing a ‘less and better beats more’ approach to a more sustainable future.

Many of the products selected for ‘Made the Grade’ have been in evaluation for three years or more, with some receiving updates since first taken outside or on the road for extended travel. In addition, none have been sponsored by the brands, nor does INVESTMENT receive compensation for their use in the ‘Made the Grade’ initiative.
