Obscura Explorer Camera Backpack (Dark Charcoal)

Made by South African photographers, this dark charcoal Obscura backpack is an innovative modular travelling solution with a fully removable internal management unit. Using an included strap, the removable inner bag transforms into a sling bag when you need it most, and a removable outer bag provides extra storage for clothing or accessories.

  • Laptop pocket at rear
  • Tripod attachment at bottom
  • Adjustable/removable internal padding for custom fit
  • Removable bag for clothing and accessories
  • Removable inner bag that transforms into sling bag

Ideal for photographers on-the-go, especially as it complies with airline hand luggage requirements.

A Multi-Purpose 3-in-1 Travelling Solution

The Obscura photographic bag range offers users a modular platform to use the bag as a multi-purpose hardware and storage solution, ideally suited for travel and urban exploration. The Internal Management Unit (IMU) can be fully removed from the Obscura Explorer’s outer bag to provide a safe and secure storage solution for carry-on luggage when flying, or function as a general “walk-about” hardware storage solution. The Explorer’s outer bag can function as a clothing or accessory bag to be checked-in when travelling, or function as a daypack for general-purpose applications. The removable IMU can be customised to suit a wide range of hardware and storage applications, with thick multi-layer padding to ensure ultimate protection of the content. The fabrics, zips and latches are of the highest quality for this product segment to ensure durability and longevity for commercial and leisure usage.


  • Proudly designed and manufactured in South Africa.
  • All Textiles and fabrics sourced locally.
  • Hand-made with very high attention to detail and stitching to ensure a durable product for multiple applications.
  • Equipped with a removable "modular" inner that can be removed for travel and storage purposes. 
  • A dual-purpose bag equipped with a removable "modular" inner that can be used for additional storage purposes.
  • Inner could serve as "carry-on" luggage during travel while the outer bag doubles up as a check-in option for clothing.
