this one is so hot of the machine I’m literally still doing finishing on it, finding all the loose threads and trimming them. I’ve worn it out two days, and so far it has the hallmarks of a good performer. The main body is made from cut resistant Dyneema fabric, and lined in gridstop nylon. The custom dividers are also gridstop. The black and neon yellow accent panels are 1000d codura. All of the fabrics are coated with a waterproof layer, and while I wouldn’t use this bag as a bucket, it’s totally possible.
The inside of the bag is designed to take a small mirrorless system; here it’s shown with my Leica M10, with a 50mm summilux on the front. One of the side divisions is further divided with a padded flap, allowing two lenses to be stacked on each other, but still easily accessed. Also in the main compartment is a sleeve that will fit an 11” iPad with keyboard attached.
In addition to the main compartment, there are two large side pockets, with what I’ve been calling ‘small object organizers’ in both, custom fitted for my needs; one holds a multitool, my pill case, and camera batteries, and the other has slots for everything from a regular pencil to an oversized sharpie. There’s still volume in these pockets for further gear, such as a small speedlight, snacks, or flashlights.
Other features: a small flat pocket in the front for wallets or documents or small notebook (field notes and moleskine both fit here) and a rear large flat pocket, for the inevitable airport magazine.
