Thule Aspect DSLR/ILC Shoulder Bag


Our Thule Aspect DSLR/ILC Shoulder Bag has taken a beating. It’s been tossed around during a road trip through Colorado, Utah, and California, banged and bumped on hikes in the Sierras, and exposed to cringeworthy amounts of sand in Indonesia. It’s been rained on and spilled on. Yet, the DSLR and extra lens within have remained in tip-top shape. Our tester packed the Canon 70D, and by removing one of the two internal velcro walls was able to pack a body and two lenses snuggly inside the cushioned Thule Aspect.

Pros: Durability has proved itself time and time again, but it’s the pack’s features that solidify the Aspect as a winner. The outer pocket can easily fit a spare battery and charger, while the top pocket has organizational mesh pockets for SD cards, cables, a spare harddrive, etc. The over-the-shoulder sling style pairs well with a top handle, and the pack shines when on the move.

Cons: This camera bag isn’t designed for a big or even mid-body camera—internal sizing is the only qualm some photographers will have, but of course, you can look to some of Thule’s larger camera packs.

Tester Comment: “Shooting almost daily in Southeast Asia, I’ve been stoked on this pack. I generally chuck it into a small daypack, scooter around, and then whip it out for a shorter hike or a scramble to a better vantage point. The features are all helpful, none of them unnecessary. I’ll even sometimes stash my GoPro and my external harddrive inside when traveling, condensing my electronics into one zone. At that point, the pack’s fully loaded yet still fully operational.”

Bottom Line: A quality travel DSLR camera bag that protects your camera and allows for on-the-fly shooting.

Best for: Any trip that you’ll be bringing a smaller body and no more than two mid-length or smaller lenses
