the Explore looks better suited to hiking (day hikes only for me).

I'm just not sure if it's less stylish than the Prvke.

Which is more important to you, style or substance?

I bought the Wandrd Prvke - it looks great but I hated it and sent it straight back! I can't quite remember the reasons now but I think I decided the roll top was more fuss than I wanted to put up with.

If the Shimoda meets your needs then I certainly wouldn't be put off by it's looks.

Personally, I settled for a standard hiking backpack with a Tenba BYOB insert. It doesn't hold as much camera gear as a dedicated photo backpack but that avoids to temptation to carry more weight than I really want to and it leaves more room for other essentials such as waterproofs
