Whether you are an amateur or professional photographer, there are always days when you need to travel light and without any bulky backpack. You just need to take along a basic camera with a couple of lens, or maybe even a small video camera. You also need space for the other knickknacks that you would need while you are out and about. If this describes you, then the Ouh Snap SnapBag Daily may be the perfect match.
What is it?
The Ouh Snap SnapBag Daily is a camera backpack that can comfortably carry all of your daily photography essentials, and other small items, in an organized and convenient way.
What comes with it
The Ouh Snap SnapBag Daily comes with a removable camera storage compartment, and a rain cover.
Design and features
The backpack is well made, with very comfortable adjustable shoulder straps, zippers on each side to allow you to remove the padded camera storage from either side, and brand name tag on the outer zippered pocket.
Once you remove the camera storage compartment, you can fit a mid-size DSLR with a mid-size lens attached. A DSLR with an extended battery grip attached to it, will not fit. There is a removable velcro strap that you can secure over the lens to provide for extra protection.
On the front of the bag there is a zippered pocket that can hold accessories like batteries, and keys, memory cards, etc.
When you open the zipper at the top of the bag, there are several accessory/storage pockets. On one side there are two small pockets that are about five inches deep and each one is about half the width of the bag. The pockets are above the lower camera compartment.
On the other side of the bag there is a pocket that spans the width of the bag and is about five inches deep as well. It is a fully padded pocket. In front of it, there is a second pocket that has a netted front and a thin cloth divider between the net and the front of the back pocket. These are also great for storage. As you can see in the picture below on the right, there is a divider that separates the top half of the bag from the bottom half containing the camera. This allows you to remove the camera storage container and the divider, and use the entire space as one bag. You also have the option to remove the divider and access the camera from the top of the bag.
As you can see in the pictures below, the top half of the bag offers lots of storage.
There is a waist strap with buckles that can be secured around your waist, and will keep the bag more stable if you have a need to do so.
On the back of the exterior of the bag, there is another small accessory pocket.
At the bottom of the bag there are two adjustable straps that can be used to carry a small tripod, or a rolled up blanket, or anything else similar.
The included rain cover has elastic around the edges, and you simply stretch it over the exterior of the bag to cover the open areas that would not be protected by your back.
As you can see below, the bag fits very well as a backpack, and my wife really enjoys using it.
What I like
• The material used to make the bag
• The fit and comfort it provides
• The padded interior
• The number of interior and exterior pockets
• The removable padded tray for the camera
• The flexibility to keep the bag in 2 sections or to make it one larger bag
What can be improved
The only improvement that I would recommend, is for a better designed rain cover that would include a more secure attachment to the SnapBag, so that it cannot easily come off on its own.
The Ouh Snap SnapBag Daily is a really nice backpack for carrying your daily photography “stuff” along with some other personal items. The bag is lightweight and well made, and just looks nice. It has become the daily-use backpack for my wife who is an amateur photographer, and a mom. She loves it, and in my opinion, for her to endorse it makes it a worthy bag.
