See you in the spring?

A bag within a bag within a bag. That pretty well sums up the Wandrd Prvke pack. Designed by two adventuresome brothers, Spencer and Ryan Cope, the Prvke pack (pronounced Provoke) is a camera bag, a commuter backpack and weekend traveler all rolled into one. The design was born from frustration with other bags they bought to try and match their wandering lifestyle.

It has so many pockets, straps, clips and zippers that it's pretty much the opposite of the last Kickstarter-funded camera bag I looked at, the Peak Design Everyday Messenger. Both are designed to be used as all-purpose bags as well as a camera bag, but while the Peak is fine for a day out and about, the Prvke is made for going out and staying there.

Wandrd is currently seeking your support on Kickstarter (it's reached its $60,000 goal), but I got a quick tour of the bag's design and features from Spencer Cope if you want to see it away from the funding pitch.

The bag is made from tarpaulin and nylon dobby with pockets secured by YKK zippers. The whole thing weighs 4 pounds (1.8 kg). It isn't waterproof, but can handle a little rain. For full-on downpours a rain cover is included.

This side pocket can hold a water bottle or you can unzip it to stretch it around the legs of a compact tripod.

The accessory straps on the sides can be connected to each other to secure things to the front of the bag.

The side access zipper lets you get to your camera without fully opening the bag.

Open the side access panel and you'll find a small zippered pocket for extra bits like batteries and memory cards.

Not taking a lot of camera gear or only taking your camera gear? You can pull out the camera storage cube that holds a dSLR and up to seven lenses. Eight configurable dividers are included.

Padding on the back and straps keeps it comfortable. There are also elastic bits on the straps to hold lens caps or extra batteries or other small accessories you need to keep handy.

There are magnets in the hand straps to help keep them together so they don't flap all over the place when not in use.

The top handles make it easy to carry on and off a plane, train or bus.

A hidden pocket at the bottom of the back gives you a place to stash things like a passport, wallet or whatever.

The back opens completely so you can pack it like you would a suitcase. Plus, the laptop sleeve on the back panel makes it TSA-friendly. Just open it up and slide it through the scanner.

Instead of buying a bag based on the size of your laptop, the Prvke has an adjustable sleeve that holds laptops from 13 to 17 inches.

When you just need to grab your laptop out, all you need to do is open the back zippers at the top and grab it.

The advantage of the roll top, aside from easy loading and unloading, is that it'll expand when you need it, but can keep the bag compact when you don't.

The roll top opening gives you plenty of room to get stuff in and out.

You have full access to your stuff from top to bottom or in through the back.

A zippered pocket on the bottom gives you somewhere to stash the bag's rainfly so you don't have to think twice about always keeping it with you.

While the rainfly has elastic to keep it tight on the bag, there are also straps to connect one side to the other so it won't accidentally blow off the bag while riding a motorcycle.

Two accessory straps are included that can be used for securing a tripod or other equipment to the bag. However, if you wear the bag on your chest, you can use the straps to secure the bag while open, so you can reach in to change lenses, swap batteries or just grab a snack.

Have you ever tried to wear a camera sling strap with a backpack? It's a pain. Wandrd solves this by including one that attaches to the bag's shoulder strap.

Lastly, there's a big zippered pocket on front for anything you need to get at quickly.

Wandrd has surpassed its $60,000 Kickstarter funding goal for the Prvke pack and is targeting delivery for April 2016. But, you know, delays can happen. Be sure to read the risks involved before you contribute.

You can back the campaign up until November 5 and it will cost you $215 to secure a bag, $55 less than the expected retail price of $270. ($215 converts to around £140 or AU$300.)
