The PRVKE Pack is a backpack with a purpose. We are passionate photographers, travelers, commuters, creators, and explorers, and needed a pack that could keep up with our adventurous lifestyle. What we've created is a bag that can flow from photography shoots to commutes, from the airport to interstellar travel effortlessly, all while being ridiculously good looking and standing up to the inevitable beating we dish out along the way.

Designed to be everything you need in a bag, and nothing more.

When we set out our goal wasn’t just to make a great photography and travel bag. We wanted to encourage others to stop focusing on the monotony of daily live and to really live.

A great bag does more than carry your stuff. A great bag evokes action and facilitates adventure, all while being so intuitive, you forget it's even there.

Versatile

We get it. Your life is in constant motion and your carrying needs are ever changing. Your life isn't stagnant and your bag shouldn't be either. Whether you are heading to a photo shoot, traveling across the globe, or commuting to work, the PRVKE pack was designed to adapt to your lifestyle.

The removable foam cube and internal bag divider make it easy to seamlessly organize your gear in a customizable way that makes the most sense for you.

The magnetics tote handles are strong enough to hold together when you need them to, but quickly pull apart when you need to access your gear.

Trifold Laptop Sleeve 

The tri-fold laptop sleeve will adjust to fit your 13"–17" (up to 11"x16" dimensions) laptop snugly, so you don't have to worry about it moving around in your bag.

Our laptop sleeve adjusts to fit the size of your laptop. Oh, and no need to take it out when going through security. The sleeve is FAA approved so just open the clam shell, put it through the scanner, and be on your way.

Adjust the tri-fold system to your laptop once, then easily slide your laptop in and out forever more.

A set of our versatile accessory straps are included with every bag, and they're here to make your life easier. You can also order an extra pair of accessory straps with your pack by adding $12 to your pledge amount. 

And yes, they are also black.

Incredibly Accessible

There's nothing more frustrating than needing your camera, a book, a pen, headphones, etc., out of your bag, and it taking 5 minutes to do so. Great design is seamless, intuitive, and accessible, so all of your gear is at your fingertips.

Clamshell Opening

Lay flat packing makes all of your gear accessible when you need it – and this is just one of the main access points on the PRVKE Pack.

We hate neck straps – they are uncomfortable and always seem to get in the way. So we designed a camera sling that integrates with the PRVKE Pack to make your camera easy to carry and accessible so you never miss a shot. The best part – it's included with every pack!

Sexy

Let's be honest, most camera and travel bags are like cargo pants, they're functional, but you lose all dignity wearing them (sorry dad). When we set out to make the PRVKE pack, we knew that it had to look incredible. 

Sleek and minimal urban design so that you feel good wherever you are. 

Bomb Proof

Each material in the pack has been carefully chosen for its performance characteristics as well as aesthetic quality. We're perfectionists and obsessed over every detail – both in looks and function.

Custom molded, oversized buckle for ease of access and distinct style.

Tarpaulin and Nylon Dobby are weather resistant and extremely durable to ensure your gear stays safe from the elements. The seams of the bag aren't completely waterproof, but you certainly won't have to worry about a little rain.

Yes, there really was camera gear in the bag. But please remember that this bag is not waterproof, just highly water resistant.

We've included a rainfly with dedicated storage – so you're ready for those torrential downpours.

The rainfly is fitted to the pack, but leaves enough room for the accessories you have strapped to the outside of bag to fit under there as well.

 YKK Zippers

YKK zippers are the industry standard for a reason. The documents and side camera pocket also have a zipper garage to keep you comfortable and your gear safe.

 This bag is for the adventurous, and molds to any situation they find themselves in.

Because sometimes you need a little more organization for your cords, pocket sized Tabasco, chapstick, small electronics, and throwing knives. The WANDRD Pouch is just as sexy and bombproof as the PRVKE Pack, because it's made out of the same high-quality tarpaulin and YKK zippers.

Many of you have asked for the option to add additional accessory straps to your packs... and now you can!

How do I add these to my order?

All you need to do is add $12 to your pledge to get 2 additional accessory straps with your backpack (these will retail at $15). To do that, click "Manage My Pledge" at the top of the Kickstarter page and increase your pledge by $12 (or $24 if you want 4 extra straps). Then save your pledge. That's it!

When it comes down to it, we are just a couple of dudes that really don’t want to work in an office, at a desk, 9-5. As you watch our video you are peeking into a big part of our lives. We have been lucky enough to grow up in Utah where we have access to some of the greatest landscapes in the world within a couple hours drive and we try to take full advantage of it. We are both avid travelers, adventurers, photographers, creators, complainers, and explorers - and yes we are brothers. I (Spencer) consider myself the style of this duo and Ryan is the function - anyone who knows us will not disagree. We grew up traveling a lot with our family and have continued to do so as we’ve gained our independence and much of our life revolves around the next adventure. 

Now that you know who we are you probably want to know why this bag? The honest truth, as cliche as it sounds, we both wanted a solid bag that was sexy yet functional. We both made several purchases trying to fulfill this need. We both were extremely frustrated with we what we found on the market.
