Bag makers Wandrd have returned to Kickstarter and this time they've launched a campaign for the VEER 18L packable bag with inflatable back panel and camera cube. The idea is simple. Typically packable bags lack protection and structure, making them uncomfortable to carry and not ideal for packing sensitive technology, such as cameras or laptops.

The VEER 18L solves these issues by using an inflatable back panel and camera cube which can, when deflated, be packed down to very small dimensions but turn the bag into a proper camera bag when filled with air.

As the name suggests, the VEER 18L has a volume of 18 litres. The largest camera the camera cube can hold is a Canon 5D type body with a 24-70mm lens attached. You can fit a bigger camera or a camera with battery pack but then the lens has to be stored in a different place. The bag is also large enough for a Mavic Pro sized drone. A water bottle sleeve is on board as well.

The bag is made from weather resistant materials but is not fully waterproof, so it will withstand light rain but not a fall into a river. you are good but don't dunk it in a river.

The VEER 18L weighs only 383g (12.8oz) and packs down into a very small package, making it ideal for carrying in a bigger bag and use as a day bag.

You can reserve a VEER 18 with inflatable back panel by pledging $79 on Kickstarter. The version with camera cube will set you back $118. Delivery is scheduled for August 2019.
