This is my daily driver and if I had a BFF camera pack, this would be it. It’s the one pack that does it all. From skiing to hiking to even alpine climbing. This pack and I go everywhere in all kinds of weather!
Love the reduced weight of the Kashmir. I use this pack mostly for days on my mountain bike with camera in tow. This pack is not weather proof so on bad weather days I always bring a pack cover.
The Lotus has been my loyal campanion for most of my adventures over the last 8+ years. The only reason I retired it recently is that the Ajna gives me a few extra litres which I use to carry an extra jacket.
This is the pack when I dust off the wilderness and head into the city. The days that I want to have a little less camera pack on my back and be a little more incognito. Less camera weight on my back means easier transit.
