Just the other day, I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and came across a link that had been shared by one of my good friends. The link was labeled as “The last camera shoulder bag you will ever need. Built from the ground up for active photographers”.
Naturally, being targeted towards photographers, it piqued my interest and, just moments later, I had found myself scrolling down a Kickstarter page reading all about it. And, to be completely honest, it does look like a pretty darn good gear bag!
Obviously, being a Kickstarter campaign, the product is not yet available but, knowing that know many photographers would get much use out of it, I thought it was well worth a share.
The Bug Out Photography Bag
Designed by wedding and portrait photographer, Sal Cincotta, the bug out bag, taking it’s name from the military “bail-out bag”, is purpose made to be a grab-and-go bag that can easily house all of your photography gear. Additionally, it had been designed as a working field bag, making it easy to carry around when traveling and easily accessible while on-location during photography sessions.
The bag itself, constructed from 1200D nylon with a quilted interior, is marked as being water resistant and easy to clean while also featuring a shockproof bottom through the inclusion of PVC material.
The Bag’s Key Features
The bug out bag features a handful of features that do make it stand out as a potential leader amongst many alternate photography bags out there. Some of these features include:
- Water resistant construction
- Waterproof YKK zipper
- Shockproof foot cushion
- Quick release buckle
- Business card holder
- Dual zipper pockets (inside the top cover)
- Reinforced lens swap pocket – lined with microfibre for extra protection
- 3 card pockets
- Quick access storage compartment
- 4 slim side pockets
- Quilted/Padded interior
- 3 expandable external pockets
- Roller bag compatible
- Strong adjustable nylon shoulder strap
Not a bad set of features and, with all of the storage areas, it has the capability of holding a camera body, multiple lenses, multiple external flashes, memory cards, a laptop, and all of the cords and cables you would need.
