Combining Photo Balance Pockets with an Aarn pack solves the frustrations of current camera bags. Camera backpacks need to be taken off to access camera gear and cause forward lean. Front camera cases hanging via a strap around your neck cause neck discomfort. Photo Balance Pockets give the same instant camera access of front cases without the neck strain. They put all the camera weight on the front of the hipbelt, also eliminating back and shoulder strain; they don’t restrict vision of your feet; they are very stable; their waterproof liners keep your camera gear dry and items can be removed while still in the liners in wet conditions. Photo pockets also convert to a stand alone front pack or a backpack. Photographers love these pockets. Non-photographers who like more compartments for gear organization enjoy these Pockets.

I honestly couldn't have made this documentary without the Aarn Photo Balance Pockets. I was carrying a 5d Mkiii with a 24-105 lens, a 14mm prime, and tripod and they were all within hands reach at any time. The weight distribution was amazing as well. It's a little unwieldy to get on and off. Otherwise, brilliant.

Peak Outdoors

Having the right equipment can make the difference between an awesome time and a rough one. Let's do it right.

Not a recommendation.
Get outside.

Some of the best things in life happen outside; the pre-dawn ascent, the post run coffee, the all day ride, the late afternoon dive and drinks around a fire to close out the day. We try to spend as much or our time doing these things with the people we love and think you should too.

the right gear

We work to have the right tool for the job which lets you shop less and get outside more. That is what Peak Outdoors is about.

Paddling Sebago? Check.

Skiing Tucks? Check.

Riding Huts and Trails? Check.

You get the idea.
