Adventuring in the Tsitsikamma
National Geographic Rain Forest Collection – Medium Backpack
I jumped with joy when Manfrotto asked me to review their newly launched National Geographic Rain Forest Collection. I cannot express how important a camera bag is to a photographer, it is probably as important as your camera and lenses. It is quite difficult to put a smile on your dial and be creative at the same time when your back is in pain.
When I opened the link to the National Geographic Rain Forest Collection, I fell in love with all 5 bags! However, this review is about the Rainforest Medium Backpack.
This bag is beautiful to look at. The external colour is inspired by the beautiful lush greens and browns of the Rain Forest while internal linings are inspired by the forests local inhabitants.
I had been planning a three day trip to Tsitsikamma and I knew right then and there that this would be the ideal place to test this backpack. Our grueling adventures included Segways through the pine and indigenous forests, zip lining above waterfalls and hiking in the Tsitsikamma National Park.
The main reason for choosing this bag was the fact it was a “Rucksack” and I know I would continue to use it on other hiking expeditions and InstaWalks. Having a laptop compartment was on my wish list for a long time and now I have discarded lugging another bag around with me, bonus!
