Designed to suit active photographers and travellers, the new bags offer multiple configuration options and fast-access for photographers on the move. Features include fast-opening side zips for easy access when the bag is rotated from back to front. The innovative UltraFlex fit system provides multiple ways to organize and protect your camera, laptop/tablet and personal gear via the central flex divider, which includes secure padding.  A Hideaway Tripod Mount is included for securing a compact tripod to the side of the bag, while other noteworthy features include a front stash pocket with key fob, a stow-away stabilising waist strap to help distribute bag weight and a padded, mesh-covered back pad. A built-in All Weather AW Cover pulls out to protect the contents of each bag against spray and showers.
