Who is Boundary Supply?
Boundary Supply was founded in 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah by a trio of die-hard travel/outdoor/photography enthusiasts. With several successful Kickstarter campaigns under their belt for their flagship products the Prima System (2017), Errant Pack (2018), and Chase Pants (2019), the company has seen a lot of challenges, as well as growth and success.
The company was founded on the principal to create technical and sustainable products that push the limits in design and consumer value. At the core of Boundary’s brand mission is a strong dedication to sustainability. All materials, mills, and factories used in the production of their products are Bluesign® certified, meaning their supply chain facilities are specifically designed to reduce environmental impacts through water energy and chemical use.
Upon my research of the company, there seemed to be wide range of opinions about their customer service and fulfillment practices – everything ranging from it being horrible to raving excellence. It also appears that they had some fulfillment challenges over the past year but have been actively working to improve their operations. I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and give them a shot.

Prima System Photographer Bundle
As an avid photographer/outdoor adventurer, I’d been following Boundary for a few months and had my eye on the Prima System. It was touted as being a premier modular backpack with dynamic usage and adaptable components. I decided to go ahead and purchase the Prima System Photographer, which landed me a 15% bundling discount with a higher price tag of about $425. This particular bundle includes the Prima System – the backpack, Verge Case (camera case), and Fieldspace (laptop case) all in one – the MK-1 Camera Case, EXM Port 6 Liter, Transit Case and HT Key Clip.
Now for a breakdown of some of the highlights for each product that came in the bundle…
The Prima System
I’ve had my Prima System Modular Backpack for about 6 months and I’m absolutely loving it, so far! As mentioned before, the bag comes with the Verge Case that I personally use mostly for my Canon 5D camera and up to two lenses. It also comes with the Fieldspace for tablets or a 13” laptop (while the Prima System interior laptop sleeve fits up to a 17” laptop).
The Verge doubles as a great little camera carrying option or as a sling or fanny pack for those times when you want to leave your entire bag behind.
The Fieldspace snaps nicely to the inside of the back panel of the Prima, keeping my tablet and any miscellaneous cables protected and secured in place.
MK-1 Camera Case
The MK-1 fits nicely inside the main compartment of the Prima System. I love the fact that it integrates with the Prima’s side access. I store my 5D camera and several lenses camera gear in it, with the ability to fully customize the interior layout of the case to suit whatever I am using it for.
EXM Port 6 Liter
The EXM is perfect to use when I need to carry extra small items – especially things like dirty or wet clothing if I’m out and about on a hike. It hangs below the Prima bag and it’s nice to have a separate compartment to store these types of items in.
The transit case has been really convenient for accessing my phone while wearing the bag. It has an easy access magnetic closure and keeps my phone secure and readily available while on the go. It also has some extra storage for cards and other miscellaneous small items.
HT Key Clip
Lastly, the bundle includes a lightweight key clip with a G-clip that is long enough to store your keys right in your back pocket. It also clips right into the zipped top pocket of the Prima backpack for easy and secure access.
Summary of Boundary Supply
I have to say, the quality of the products from Boundary did not disappoint. Before purchasing, it looked like the overall quality reviews seemed really positive, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was even better than I expected. Each and every detail was carefully considered and designed with the user in mind. The materials are water and stain resistant and extremely durable.
Boundary also offers the Prima System, and some of their other products, in the X-Pac material, which is an even sturdier fabric designed for more rugged environments (and also has a higher price tag at about $350). For my purposes, the regular Prima material works just fine.
I would highly recommend Boundary Supply products to anyone who needs high quality carry solutions for adventuring in the mountains, photography, weekend getaways or just your everyday work/school commute.
