The Hold Fast Sightseer backpack system isn't just a backpack -- it's also a strap much like the brand's popular Money Maker with dual camera leashes on both straps for comfortable, quick access to two cameras. The bag is designed to carry quite a bit of gear, including a 15" laptop, a DSLR and several lenses, but the front of the pack also features loops to expand the storage with additional lens pouches and smaller bags.

The bag comes in three different options, waxed canvas, American Bison or Bridle leather. All three designs use a lovely Aztec printed flannel fleece interior to keep gear protected. The design is also weather sealed. With both the built-in camera straps and modular system, the bag is easily customizable.

As a high-end bag with high-end materials, the Sightseer is certainly not a budget bag, but for photographers looking for a customizable backpack that's both durable and stylish, the Sightseer certainly fits the bill.
