The VEO City Series is a collection of bags that delivers a sleek, modern design to match your style, while being packed with innovative storage solutions, keeping your gear well organized and safe on the go. 

This series includes Technical Pouches (TP) to organise your accessories, Cross Body Bags (CB) that are great for micro 4/3rd cameras, alongside Shoulder Bags (S) and Backpacks (B) for DSLR and mirrorless cameras while organising your accessories.

These backpacks are constructed with Air Textured Yarn that creates a tough 1050D nylon shell and is coated in a durable water repellent, with 2-layers of water-resistant  polyurethane and waterproof zips to create a tough, weatherproof shell, with a separate rain cover for the wettest days. This outer shell then covers high density, shock absorbent cross-linked polyethylene (XPE) foam under armour that keeps your kit safe from the knocks and bumps of everyday life. 

The backpacks are designed with rear access and the VEO City B42 is designed to carry a DSLR camera and up to 6 lenses (up to 70-200mm f2.8) in the main compartment. The slimline dividers are designed to maximise the space available while protecting your kit, and can be adjusted to your preferred layout. 

Full access to your kit is through the back for maximum security, but the backpack can be set up for quick top access to your camera.

They are also packed with pockets to store a wide range of kit, including:

  • Expanding side pockets for water bottle or a tripod
  • Two zipped mesh pockets on inside front flap
  • Pouch on inside front flap for an 14" laptop
  • Inner zip up pocket on the side
  • RFID protected pocket in top flap
  • Hidden pocket on rear below the trolley strap
  • Expanding pocket on a shoulder strap

In addition, the backpack comes with an accessories pouch to organise cables, cards and much more.  This can be carried in the backpack, or attached to the front of the backpack to free up space inside for additional lenses.  It can also be used separately as a small sling bag to keep valuables like passports close to hand as you explore.

For maximum comfort as you travel, there is a 4D AIR Fibre padded back.  This contours to your back to maximise comfort, while the fibres maximise the ventilation to keep you cool.  The shoulder straps also incorporate Honeycomb TPE padding that help reduce the strain, and there is a built in adjustable chest strap to keep the shoulder straps slipping as you travel.

The backpack also comes with a detachable dual purpose strap.  This can be used as a waist strap for the backpack for longer trips, or as a shoulder strap when using the accessories pouch separately.
