Different bags are needed when it comes to daily use, shooting and traveling, we often fall into a dilemma over which bag to bring along.
The PILOT Backpack - 20L
The 360° Velcro compatible interior allows dividers to be set up freely.
With a 20L capacity, the Pilot Backpack can hold a 15” laptop + 2 full frame DSLRs + 5 lenses.
For travel occasions, you can pack a DSLR body + 2 lenses, a pair of shoes, clothes, toiletry, etc.
7 pockets located throughout the backpack for stashing small accessories and personal belongings.
Designed by Chief Designer Albert Y., the widened trapezoid-shaped ergonomic strap system and multi-layered cushioned back panel help distribute weight evenly throughout your shoulders and back, keeping the backpack drawn to your torso at all times.
Dual side L-shaped access points allow fast, one-handed entry.
A Quick-Release Peak Design Camera Mount can be attached to the shoulder straps.
For the love of the canvas, early Wotancraft bags were built from traditional waxed canvas. However, due to the bulkiness of traditional canvas, Wotancraft has developed a new lightweight CORDURA Ⓡ Waxed Canvas. Presented as cotton-like fabric, the new CORDURA Ⓡ canvas is soft and durable, unlike ordinary CORDURA Ⓡ that has a plastic-like texture.
With use, WOTANCRAFT waxed CORDURA ® bags will develop light shaded scuff marks, similar to the “fading” effect you find on raw denim pants. Even with a lack of leather and metal accessories, the PILOT still inherits Wotancraft’s “Vintage Soul” vibe.
For the past decade, Wotancraft has been expressing our love for vintage, photography, adventure, and WWII aesthetics through our creations. pursuing "Style & Functionality" has always been Wotancraft's long term goal.
Already a very convenient backpack to use, the PILOT also has a set of Add-on Module Pouches for adapting to different scenarios. CLICK HERE to learn more about the Add-on Module System.
On its own, the Pilot Backpack is a complete backpack with reasonable capacity, storage compartments and functions. However, Wotancraft Designer Albert Y. is still not satisfied with it.
“How can I make this bag suitable for any kind of scenario...?”
He came up with the idea of adding 3 optional Add-on Pocket Modules for users to decide what they need.
When planning for a photography trip, other than storing your camera and gear in the main compartment, you can increase your packing space by adding 1-2 modules.
The fully equipped Pilot Backpack handles all your outdoor activities.
Other than the Pilot Backpack’s 3 Add-on Module Pouches, the Pilot Travel Camera Bag is also a module compatible bag.
Allowing you to organize your own space and no longer limited by fixed compartments, the 3 Add-on Pocket Modules, Interior Pocket Modules and 360° Velcro compatible interior allow you to create the most user-friendly setup.

The Tripod Strap which comes with the backpack can secure your tripod firmly on the side of the bag. Also, for preventing rainwater from gathering, the sidepockets have drainage holes at the bottom.
Designed in a trapezoid shape, the widened ergonomic strap system helps distribute weight evenly throughout your shoulders and keeps the backpack close to your back.
