CHROME LAUNCHES NEW NIKO CAMERA BACKPACK AS PART OF PHOTO LINE:
Designed for street photographers and action videographers who need a covert utility bag, the Niko Camera Pack features a weatherproof 1,000-denier-nylon shell, a military-grade tarpaulin liner, a fully customizable interior for lenses and flashes, multiple pockets for cable and gear storage, and fast, easy swing-around access. Stash your phone, fuel, and an extra layer in the top-loader and securely slide up to a 15” laptop in the padded sleeve. Outside, you’ll find a U-lock holster and Velcro straps for lashing a tripod, skateboard, or cardboard tubes for your photo prints. And, like all Chrome bags, it’s guaranteed for life.
