50% Backpacking
50% Gear-packing



“Travel with your camera gear.”


Camera backpacks nowadays falls under 2 categories: the "gear bag" for commercial photographers or "tech bag" for digital nomads & urban commuters. Others can always tell whether your backpack carries digital gear, and therefore it is hard to be inconspicuous when travelling overseas carrying these "traditional" camera backpacks.






To better accommodate the needs of travelling creators, WOTANCRAFT launched the NOMAD at the end of 2019, a “camera backpack that doesn’t look like one” with no trace of accessible pockets or zippers... at first glance.






Whether you are a Youtuber, professional photographer, or just a backpacker with one camera, the NOMAD will fit all your gear with the expandable interior space from 15 Litres to 25 Litres.

is key



“Be a backpacker, not a tourist.”






When you walk down the street with the NOMAD, others behind you will not see any zippers or pockets. It looks like a simple rolltop backpack that fits in any scenario: cities, countryside or off the map.

But don’t be fooled by NOMAD’s humble exterior, it’s packed with crucial features for photographers & content creators:



NOMAD product content and accessories



15 Litres of padded shockproof gear storage
10 Litres of expandable room for clothing & sneakers
13 inch laptop compartment (fits latest 16 inch MacBookPro)
side pockets large enough to fit red wine bottles
fully hidden pockets for passports & foreign currencies
MOLLE system for fastening tripods or latching accessories...

all hidden under the hood made of water-repellant 500D Cordura® N66 Nylon canvas that can withstand heavy rain & snow.










“We built the NOMAD like a hiking backpack.”
- designer Albert Yuan



To alleviate the stress of weight carrying, we designed the NOMAD with extended shoulder strap width & shoulder plate extension, so that the NOMAD can firmly “hug” your back, distributing weight onto your body.



In sunny days, NOMAD will keep your back from stifling sweats, thanks to the “air venting web mesh fabric” + “perforated foam” that allows wind to travel freely across your back.



“Carry with your waist, not your shoulders.”






If you are going to a one day hike, or carry close to 10kg of camera gear for your photography assignment, you will definitely need to learn how to carry backpacks with padded waist straps.


WOTANCRAFT have also prepared the optional “padded waist belt” that can be mounted onto the NOMAD, transferring 80% of the backpack weight to your waist, freeing your shoulders of the burden during long walks, drastically reducing stress on the upper body.



there’s more...



NOMAD is our first “travel-oriented” backpack, with more design considerations that are not visible at the exterior. With all the specs aside, all we hoped to achieve is for you to say:


“This is by far the best travel backpack I’ve ever used.”
