Is This The Most Innovative Camera Backpack Ever?


The world of photography is constantly evolving, with innovations seeking to meet the varied needs of photographers. Among these new products, the Lancer 300 backpack from Coalax stands out for its unique modular design and its integrated power station, a first in the industry. This Kickstarter project quickly exceeded its funding goal, demonstrating its appeal to photography professionals and enthusiasts. This backpack promises to not only protect your gear, but also recharge it on the go, thus offering a complete solution for nomadic photographers.

An innovative and modular design

The Lancer 300 sits on a rigid exoskeleton frame to which different luggage packs and pouches can be attached. This modularity allows users to customize their bag according to their specific needs, whether for a photo session in the city or an expedition in the wilderness. The centerpiece of this system is a 336Wh power station, capable of recharging a camera 12-15 times or a laptop 4-5 times. Equipped with multiple USB-A, Type-C outputs and even regular power outlets, this power station greatly increases the versatility of the bag.

Protection and accessibility

In addition to its practicality, the Lancer 300 offers optimal protection for your equipment. A waterproof cover protects the power dock ports from exposure to the elements, while the main compartment, accessible from the rear, accommodates a full-frame body and multiple lenses, including a 70-200mm f/2.8. A 6L top pouch is specially designed to carry a small drone, like the DJI Mavic 3. In addition, 16 attachment points are distributed on the exterior to attach objects such as cups, lamps or a sleeping bag.

Flexibility and mobility

The Lancer's distinctive character doesn't stop there. It also incorporates extendable poles on each side, featuring a standard 1/4″-20 threaded mounting point, allowing mounting of an action camera, 360 camera, lights or phone. Ideal for hands-free vlogging, each pole can extend up to 1,5m and rotate 360 ​​degrees, while remaining attached to the bag. These poles can also be removed if not needed.

Choices and precautions

The Lancer 300 measures 515 x 310 x 250mm and weighs 2,6kg without the power bank. With this, the weight increases by an additional 3,2kg. However, for those wishing to save weight, the power station can be replaced with an accessory pack of equivalent dimensions, adding just 0,4kg to the total weight of the bag. Available in green, black, or camo, the Lancer 300 carries an MSRP of $499, although a discounted Early Bird pricing is available, lowering the price to $369. As with any crowdfunded product, there's no guarantee that your order will be fulfilled, but the Lancer 300 remains one of the most interesting camera backpacks we've seen in recent years.
