    Dedicated Laptop Storage

    Attention for detail

    Gem's attention to detail as standard


    All Scorpion Rucksacks in our range are weather protected against nature's unexpected mishaps. 

    The Scorpion Maxi is provided with a weather cover protecting your equipment from whatever the weather can throw at it.

    One bag fits all

    Gone are the days when you are overloaded with baggage on the way to a shoot. 

    There is no need to take more than one bag anymore, as this backpack will accommodate an attached 80-200mm f/2.8 lens, plus up to 5 more lenses or an additional body or flash, and accessories.  

    A tripod can be attached to the front of the backpack using the removable tripod straps.  

    Customise your storage

    Despite GEM not venturing into mind reading technology just yet, we still know how to ensure your items go where you want them.  

    With the bags Velcro based self-positional partitions, the Scorpion Maxi gives you, the photographer, ample room to store your lenses in a section you decide on.

    Bring Your laptop to your shoot

    For those who need the ability to take their laptop on those important projects, the Scorpion Maxi comes with an additional laptop storage area, protected as expected with 10mm padding on the front, rear and bottom panels.


    Throughout the bag there are nine storage areas, great for those accessories, from documents or papers to your mobile phone or compact camera, the Scorpion Maxi has all the space you could ever possibly think of.


    With the exception of the rip-stop outer side pockets every surface boasts the 10mm padding you would expect from a high quality product. 

    So from the moment the zips are closed, rest assured that your expensive camera and accessories are sealed in protection.

    Attention to detail

    Here at GEM Bags attention to detail is something we believe in, that's why we have laminated the internal accessory pouch, installed screen protector flaps on all the internal zips and even turned the zips inside out, avoiding any damage to your precious equipment. 

    A little detail that could make a big difference.

    Perfect to walk for miles

    The Army have been utilising rucksacks for many years and it's the best place to look when thinking of comfort. 

    Based on the military type rucksack, the Scorpion Maxi uses thick padded shoulder straps, 3.5cm waist strap and a sternum strap.  

    This means that no matter how heavy the rucksack, comfort will still prevail.

 Service was second to none. Swift delivery and the scorpion maxi backpack I ordered is fantastic. Quality throughout very well made. Stitching is faultless zips are smooth and strong and I got my e-620. 50-20070-30012-6014-4240-150 lenses and ec-20. Flash. Filters. Remote all fitted in the backpack and it is still comfortable to to carry. And the last thing is the price. What can I say, a bargain.

 The small adjutable compartments inside are a nice touch and very useful. Im also a fan of the rain cover, thanks guys.

 My wife bought me this for my birthday and I am delighted with it. It fits my Nikon D3200 perfectly inside and has plenty of room for the zoom lens, battery, even our Sony camcorder and accessories. I don't have the problem anymore of wishing I had taken this or that, i can take the lot and it straps around you so both hands are free. We even bought the weatherproof cover which I would strongly recommend and having recently been to Bruge and out and about in the rain - it protects perfectly. I just cannot fault this bag and think it is brilliant.
