Photographers in search of a lightweight and moderately compact photo bag for mountain biking and big adventures will be intrigued by the Stage Capture 16L from EVOC. It features a customizable camera compartment and pretty quick access to the camera when you drop a shoulder strap and let it sling over.

There's an upper accessory storage compartment with a zipped mesh pocket that could work well for small items, as well as a slot and hose routing for your choice of hydration bladder. The bladder slot could also double as a spot for a smaller laptop. Outer pockets include one on the hip for fast grabs and a stretchy mesh pocket that can accommodate a water bottle.

Tucked away underneath you'll find a rain cover and additional straps for vertically or horizontally attaching a tripod.

Though it's unlikely to get too heavy when loaded due to its size, weight management seems very goods thanks to the adjustable fit system, pivoting and padded shoulder staps, plus a wide waist belt with the ability to really cinch things down. EVOC's AirFlow Contact back system is designed for comfort and keeping sweat at bay.
