SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Travelers, Photographers and Adventurists have quickly embraced 'The Camera Pack: Peter McKinnon X NOMATIC'. Since launching on October 15, it has raised over $700,000 and counting - with more than 2,000 backers on Kickstarter.
NOMATIC teamed with YouTube photographer/videographer sensation Peter McKinnon to create the ultimate camera pack with customizable organization and easy access pockets.
McKinnon, a YouTube star who creates content about photography and cinematography for nearly four million YouTube subscribers with 269 million views, was already a big fan of the NOMATIC line of travel bags when he partnered with NOMATIC to design a functional camera pack.
"We're excited to reach this level of support so early in our campaign, which shows there's a real need for a functional camera bag like this," said NOMATIC co-founder Jon Richards. "In addition to all the best features necessary for a photographer, Peter wanted us to design a full travel system – and that's what 'The Camera Pack: Peter McKinnon X NOMATIC' is."
First and foremost, the team focused on organization – creating thoughtful compartmentalization with endlessly customizable folding dividers. The NOMATIC Camera Pack is made for a pro or a hobbyist with a separate clothing compartment to optimize packing – including a seven-liter expansion when more space is needed.
"It can be hard to find the perfect camera bag, especially when you want a bag that can serve as both a camera bag and a travel bag at the same time," McKinnon said. "This bag is designed to have all the pockets and compartments you need with customizable storage to hold your gear and your clothes too."
The NOMATIC Camera Pack is a carry-on size, includes quick camera access or a full wide opening and has an external laptop pocket for a 15-inch laptop and several easy access pockets.
McKinnon and the NOMATIC team also focused on comfort, designing the camera pack with a full internal suspension system to lighten the load, and multiple external adjustment and support straps.
The Camera Pack is filled with the tech features customers have come to expect from NOMATIC. It offers full main access, quick side access and the ability to expand from 35 liters/2,100 cubic inches to 42 liters/2,600 cubic inches – with pockets for a tripod/bottle, laptop, tablet and other small items.
Other features include:
- Aluminum stays and waist straps
- Thick shoulder pads
- Breathable Eva foam channels
- Carry-on size
- 4 grab handles
- Water resistance
- Luggage passthrough handle
- Locking zippers
It also comes with a cube pack made with durable materials that fits perfectly in the camera bag, which can be used to store a camera or drone – and can be transitioned into a small backpack.
There's also an accessory case; a protective Eva foam formed case with customizable dividers inside; a card case that holds up to six SD cards and four C fast cards with a zipper pocket; and a lens filter case, designed to hold up to six filters.
"When traveling to a destination that I was going to be in for only a few days, I had to bring my backpack with all my camera gear and a rolling bag, but I had always wanted to make that trip with a single bag," McKinnon said. "Now, with NOMATIC, I can…and so can other photographers, whether they are professionals and hobbyists. NOMATIC is well-known for designing the most functional products for travel and everyday carry, and they're continuing in that tradition by creating the perfect camera bag."

They expected to get about 50 orders, but over 6,000 people backed their campaign, investing $171,000. Since then, Richards and Durham have raised nearly $10 million through eight crowdfunding campaigns, as NOMATIC continues to design the most functional products on the market for travel and everyday carry. Everything NOMATIC creates, from Travel Packs to Planners, is designed to inspire confidence for "Life On The Move" to enable people to work hard, do more and never stop moving.
