Sharing a similar aesthetic to its companion, the Long Weekend Morro Convertible Backpack, the Long Weekend Morro Camera Cube 8L features a stylish and classic design. The predominantly black exterior has a white grid accent pattern familiar to Long Weekend fans. In addition to its stylish design, the camera cube offers a nice amount of customizability and protection for your gear.

With its 8L capacity, the camera cube provides ample space to store and organize any gear you throw at it. The light beige-colored interior includes plenty of dividers that can be easily moved, adjusted, or removed to accommodate your most important equipment. This high level of customization ensures that you can arrange your gear as efficiently and conveniently as possible. The dividers help with organization and also provide a layer of protection. While they may not offer the most luxurious padding or the softest touch, they are sturdy and reliable in keeping your gear separated and safe from any potential damage.

The Rundown

The exterior of the camera cube features a 210D nylon/polyester ripstop with a DWR (durable water repellent) and YKK zippers that can provide minimal protection for your gear from the weather. However, it’s important to note that there is no AquaGuard or protective seal around the zippers. So, while you can confidently take it out on outdoor adventures, we wouldn’t recommend using it in rainy or snowy weather.

The bag’s interior is an extra soft nylon Velex fabric that helps protect your gear from bumping against other items. The light beige color provides a nice contrast so as not to lose anything. However, as previously mentioned, it is not the softest material. We did not experience any damage to our gear, but your results may vary. We packed this cube out with a camera body (Canon EOS R), 2 lenses (Canon RF 24-105mm and 16mm), and a power bank and still had plenty of room. Numerous dividers are included to help you arrange your gear in the best possible way which we greatly appreciate.

One of the standout features of this cube is its integration with its companion, the Long Weekend Morro Convertible Backpack. The two products are designed to work together, providing a complete and convenient storage solution for all your sensitive equipment needs. However, it’s important to note that while the integration should be seamless, we didn’t have that experience. Due to the size of the cube and the shape of the backpack’s opening, some practical limitations detracted from the overall experience.

It takes a considerable amount of time for us to actually get the camera cube into the dedicated main compartment of the backpack, and even after finally doing so (after some light research), it feels far from seamless. To get the camera cube in, we have to push hard and nearly bend some of the rigid structure to fit into the dedicated space. Once it is in, the door panels that should line up with the backpack’s front and side access panels don’t feel like they are 100% compatible in size and shape. After all but forcing them into the dedicated sleeves, closing the doors feels very stiff, rigid, and disjointed. It’s also worth mentioning that when accessing the camera cube through the front compartment, the pocket did not span the full opening of the camera cube, so you can’t see the upper region of the cube.


One of the standout features of the camera cube is its wide array of internal dividers that are included. These dividers are designed to provide maximum flexibility and customization options for organizing gear. With three different sizes available – small, medium, and large – it is easy to create multiple configurations to accommodate various sizes of gear for various load-outs. The inclusion of dividers in various sizes ensures that there are plenty of options for different types of equipment. Additionally, the camera cube also includes dividers that are flexible, allowing us to adjust and adapt the compartments according to our needs. This level of versatility in the dividers makes it incredibly convenient to organize and protect the camera gear inside during travel or storage.

The camera cube also functions effectively as a standalone camera cube, protecting its contents even when placed inside rolling carry-on luggage. This is particularly important because we generally advise against checking a bag with delicate equipment like camera gear.

Quick Comparison

In comparison, the 8L capacity of the Long Weekend Morro Camera Cube falls between the small and medium camera cubes offered by Peak Design. We think the aesthetic is nicer, thanks to the exterior grid accent and light beige interior. While the Long Weekend Morro Camera Cube may be more aesthetically pleasing both inside and out, we think it falls short compared to Peak Design’s integrable camera cubes. Both options offer good protection, but Peak Design’s feels smoother and more seamless. Ultimately, the choice comes down to prioritizing style and aesthetics or functionality and usefulness.

The Long Weekend Morro Camera Cube is a stylish and practical accessory for those traveling or transporting sensitive equipment such as camera gear. Its heritage design, customizable interior, and durable construction make it a reliable choice for carrying and protecting valuables. Whether you’re a professional photographer or an enthusiastic hobbyist, this camera cube will provide ample protection.
