Booq has released their latest backpack for photographers: the Slimpack. It’s designed for photographers traveling with their gear and editing on the go, as it fits two DSLRs, up to four mid-sized lenses or one large zoom lens, a 12-inch MacBook or 10-inch iPad/tablet and a tripod.
The interior features a cushioned, non-scratch lining and densely padded dividers that can be configured to fit users’ gear of choice, while a variety of pockets with concealed interior slots keep accessories safe and organized. Made from 47 percent recycled PET and 53 percent cotton, the bag’s exterior weatherproof fabric is rugged yet smooth, while ergonomically designed shoulder straps and open mesh enable ventilation, keeping carriers cool and comfortable, says Kema Subsomboon, Lead Product Designer at booq.
The Slimpack also features an exterior pouch and buckle to tote a tripod, and includes a removable rain poncho with reflective graphics for heavier downpours. The backpack’s flat bottom allows it to stand on its own, making spur of the moment shots simple to capture.
Each Slimpack features a five-year warranty and unique Terralinq serial number, a service provided by booq designed to help owners recover lost bags. The Slimpack is available for US$195 at www.booqbags.com.
