The DJI Mavic Air. It is such a compact and sturdy little drone. But there is only so much stress a drone can handle when it is just 15oz (430g) heavy (or in fact… light!).
Whether you want to store your drone at home, or if you want to bring it when visiting a friend, or going hiking or any other outdoor activity and you want to bring your Mavic with you… It is always (and we mean ALWAYS ) smart to SCRATCHproof, DUSTproof, WATERproof or ANY-SORT-OF-DAMAGEproof your precious drone.
In this article, we picked top 3 items for each category.
1. option is our HIGH-END choice.
2. option is the MID-RANGE choice.
3. option is our LOW-END (but still very capable) choice for that particular category.

For outdoor activities, a solid backpack for your drone that distributes weight well is a must.
Backpacks distribute weight more evenly and naturally than a conventional camera bag: you will be carrying the load with both shoulders, and also some of it will be supported by the rear of your pelvis.
Huge backpacks for massive kit collections tend to be expensive, and have other drawbacks too. For example, they’re often too large to take as carry-on luggage when flying.
Here, we take a look at reasonably priced options.
They’re big enough to stow a lot of equipment but small enough to take anywhere, whether you’re traveling by train, plane, car, or even a bike.
