The latest upgrade of our iconic Commander Backpack is delivered through Wotancraft's "Vintage Tech" design language, a hybrid of vintage nostalgia with modern functionality. The original Commander was the proud winner of "Best Backpack 2018" by Carryology for its tough WWII military style.
Inheriting the same battle-distressed aesthetics, the New Commander is reborn with a modern touch!
Equipped with YKK watertight zippers to keep your precious gear and belongings dry throughout unpredictable weather situations during your journey.
Enhancing the user's experience, larger side doors allow easier, smoother access to your camera/gear. Located on the side doors are waterproof zipper pockets for storing keys, coins, cards, lens caps, filters, batteries… etc.
Paired with Wotancraft's Interior Pocket Modules to organize your accessories, along with a new ergonomic shoulder strap system, a stress alleviating waist strap, and a tripod sleeve, the New Commander is your New-Old favorite!
