Happy so far

I’m pretty happy with the Fernweh pack so far. No complaints other that I wish I waited a month longer to get the discount. But it’s a good pack.

Epic Photograher's Adventure Pack

I have bought a few Wandrd products and I am so happy with all of them! They don't skimp on the features, each bag comes with expertly constructed, well designed, and exciting innovations. The Fernweh is no exception.

I have been looking for a backpacking bag that is good for photography for years that fits all the criteria I have. I found that in the Fernweh! It is very durable, with a dedicated camera cube area and quick access pocket; it is large enough to hold all my camping gear and my camera; it is water resistant; the harness systems is SO comfortable and adjustable; and there is a convenient pocket to add a water reservoir. I just geek out about this bag to everyone I know. It is so well made that I am sure it will last me for decades.

They only complaint I have with this bag (and all Wandrd bags) is that they haven't designed the mini camera cubes to also fit the easy-access pocket. It doesn't seem like that would be too difficult to design, so I hope they do that in the future. It would just be nice to have a mini-camera cube that can still be integrated into the easy-access panel, when you only want to bring a small amount of equipment so you can bring more camping or other gear, but still be able to quickly access your camera. My Christmas wish is that Wandrd puts their excellent minds together to bring that to fruition.

Other than that, I highly recommend this bag (or any Wandrd bag) to photographers who are looking for versatile gear to transport…

There's a lot to review here

The good:

The backpack harness is the main reason I switched to this bag from the Peak Design Travel Backpack. Their backpack straps are an afterthought and the bag is uncomfortable at even reasonable loads. This bag puts the harness first and we're rewarded with incredible comfort and security.

The camera side access is the right size and is easily accessible for quickly pulling out a camera of any size.

The top catch-all compartment is spacious and the bag can hold a huge amount of stuff without *looking* like it can hold a lot, which is great.

There's extra latches, straps, strips, hooks, and loops for anything you'd want to add to carry on the exterior of the bag.

Many other pros not worth mentioning are just standard feature sets for this bag.

Cons:

The access into the bag from the back side (the side against your back as you're wearing it) is cumbersome. If you use a camera cube, this is the only way into your camera gear which makes sense from a security perspective, but it does make the idea of switching a lens or grabbing a microphone something I think twice about. This is also the way into the laptop compartment...again, not the easiest to get at. The zipper pulls run into either the waist harness or the backpack straps every time, and you need to lay the bag down totally to get at this access point. It's functional, just not a pleasant user experience.

It came with two accessory straps which I really don't know what to do with when they aren't actively being…
