Brandon Kim and Dan Limonchik’s Brevitē Jumper Photo Camera Backpack is a functional and innovative backpack that fits the needs of photographers, students, and travelers, without looking clunky.
The project has been awarded a 2021 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
While simple on the outside, the Brevitē Jumper Photo Backpack offers unique customization options paired with a simplicity that works.
The designers, Brandon and Dan, are two Rhode Island School of Design graduates who brought their rigorous design process to backpack design to create The Jumper Photo.
At the top of the bag, the low-profile handle is made of tubular webbing with an Atilon foam insert for ergonomic, comfortable handling.
And the updated sloped top is designed to better hug the person’s form, allowing for comfortable carrying.
Along the side, water bottle storage folds in to allow for a low profile and highly expandable pocket.
The bottom features two tripod holders that provide steady carrying in use and can be adjusted to sit flush with the bag when not.
Along the back, a vertical luggage passthrough allows the bag to be used in an upright position on a carry-on but sit flush when not in use allowing for comfortable carrying no matter where you are.
The back of the bag also features an air channel to create ventilation while worn.
A hidden pocket discretely added towards the upper back provides easy access and safe carrying for valuables like a passport or phone.
Brevitē knows easy access means never missing the shot, which is why they placed a quick-access side door that comfortably and safely fits any camera.
Perhaps the most loved feature of Brevitē’s bags is the iconic front pockets.
The front organizational pocket is designed to hold all the necessities and sits atop a padded camera compartment perfectly fitted to hold gear.
With Brevitē’s bags, you can grab the bag quickly and easily while knowing your belongings aren’t rattling around. Rain flaps over the zippers also ensure it is waterproof.
The interior of the bag is padded with foam to safeguard gear kept inside, including 13MM foam along the bottom.
The 16” laptop sleeve features a “false bottom” creating a gap at the bottom of the bag to protect the laptop from accidental drops.
