A German Engineer Created an Outdoor Adventure Backpack that is Great for Both Photographers and Hikers


The global backpack market was valued at USD 18 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 22 billion by 2026. With the increasing adoption of mobile lifestyles by more customers, the importance of technical features has increased. Over the last few years, adventure sports and recreational activities have witnessed a significant increase in the number of participants contributing to the growth of the backpack market. One such new market entrant is Cosyspeed’s new outdoor photography backpack called the Photohiker 44. 

Copyspeed has collaborated with outdoor equipment specialist, Vaude, to bring outdoor photographers a sturdy backpack that can withstand rough use while safely storing sensitive photography equipment such as cameras and laptops. This backpack is marketed as an industry-first hybrid that can function as a trekking backpack or a photography backpack, or both, depending on the usage.

The collaboration with Vaude enables the Photohiker 44 to boast a pro-grade carrying system for extreme trekking and challenging photography conditions. With up to two removable Photocubes and a laptop compartment, the bag offers enough space and protection for the equipment of photographers. 

The carrying system features a very well-ventilated Aeroflex 3D back system with an integrated metal frame. Comfortable ErgoShape straps and adjustable back length allow for comfortable carrying and uncomplicated adjustment to different body sizes even for extended outdoor sessions without having to take breaks to manage equipment.

The bag is made with tough nylon materials with a rain hood at the bottom that gives it the ability to withstand heavy rain showers. The bag is made in compliance with high environmental standards and is free of PFC, meaning that it meets the stringent criteria for the Green Button Alliance Certification, the government seal for environmentally sound production, and fair working conditions.
