This backpack from Amazon has everything you need to bring your camera gear with you, and the price is awesome.

Coming in at under $30, our first choice today is the Amazon Basics camera backpack. Priced well within the range of “Cheap”,the backpack is extremely usable and durable. I’ve taken one of these with me on many trips with my camera gear stashed inside.

Inside the main part of the bag you will find padded dividers with Velcro at each end. You can adjust it to fit any type of camera gear you want to bring with you. You can fit one or two DSLR cameras with maybe 3 to 4 lenses. Of course it depends on what type of gear you have.

Adjusting the backpack is easy with the fully adjustable straps. Also part of the design are additional straps that you can connect in front of you around your waist and chest. It’s a great design and very comfortable.
