Camera Bags

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Robert R Kircher, Jr., Jul 23, 2005.

  1. Over the past few weeks there have been a few posts regarding advice on
    camera bags. I too have been searching for a solution to this delima.
    After looking at Tamrac and Lowpro and several others I finally settled on
    this system http://www.kinesisgear.com/index.html.

    All I can say is this system is great. Very modular and although primarily
    a belt system the design makes it so you can easily hook all the bags
    together so you can basically create your own bag. This way you only need
    to take the gear you're going to use. The bags are very well constructed,
    water proof zippers, cinch straps, plenty of D rings so you attach a
    shoulder strap or other accessories.

    There are lots of different accessories to choose from, and Kinesis also
    offers backpack solutions that accept all their modules along with tripod
    bags and large lens cases.

    I just received the following:
    http://www.kinesisgear.com/c/C500.html has my Canon 300D with battery grip
    attached along with my Canon 28-136 IS lens w/ Hood attached properly. The
    front pouch holds my EX420 flash.
    http://www.kinesisgear.com/e/E330.html has my 18-55 kit lens and my Canon
    75-300 III zoom along with a filter pack a cloth, exra flash and camera
    batteries, tripod quick release plate, and remote shutter release.
    http://www.kinesisgear.com/e/E280.html has my Canon 100-400L IS lens with
    hood inverted.

    One of the primary reasons I chose this system is because according to the
    specs from all the companies I looked at only Kinesis had a lens case that
    was the right size for my 100-400 w/o being way too big.

    I'm now waiting for the belt and a few other smaller pieces. Can't wait
    until the UPS man comes by again.

  2. Are they waterproof? Couldn't seem to find that there.

  3. I dont' beleive they are completely water proof, however, they do sell rain
    covers for all the gear.

  4. Here is the material that they are made with.
    http://www.cordura.com/index.html Again nothing says water proof, but I'd
    have to believe it's at least water resistant considering the water proof
    zippers.
