Episode 53 The Adventure Photographers Backpack with Allan Henry from Atlas Packs

If you’ve ever tried to haul photography and videography gear into the backcountry then you know how frustrating it can be to find a place in your pack for all of your assorted bits of kit. Before Atlas Packs came along, photographers were either left with a photography centric pack that wasn’t built for the mountains or a mountain dwelling pack that wasn’t suited well for photography. Now, thanks to Allan Henry and his team at Atlas Packs, that’s no longer the problem.

Atlas Packs was designed by photographers FOR photographers who backpack. Plain and simple, it’s an amazing solution to a problem that every photographer or videographer has experienced. On this episode, I chat with Co-founder Allan Henry of Atlas Packs to find out more about his company, his vision, and his designs.
