Wandrd Hexad Access Duffel Review

"Burly. Compartmentalized."

The Hexad Access Duffel from Wandrd is a highly organized bag with multiple large compartments that’s great for anyone traveling with a serious camera setup.

Solid look — my wife says it’s too “bro/military” feeling, but lots of us like that look.

Material is rigid and zippers are a little stiff —  this is one of the bummers on this bag. But it’s only about a 20% bummer… not a full bummer.

Nice clothing/gear organization — you may really like the organization of the main compartment into 3 different “cubes”. I certainly do.

Can be used with a camera cube — they make a camera cube that you can use in one of the main compartments… features access to the camera cube from the outside of the bag!

Not quite enough organization for my in-transit needs — Tortuga’s Setout Travel Backpack, for example, has a lot more first-order access to tech organization.

If you're athletic, this bag will be fine. But if you want something comfortable, I recommend looking elsewhere because the cutouts in the straps can get very uncomfortable.

Doesn't Look Weird:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Hip and chunky look that I personally like.
