Distributor, Blonde Robot has introduced the new Morally Toxic bag range developed by the company that produced 3 Legged Thing tripods.
The new bag range carries the ‘Morally’ label to denote its ambition to achieve the highest production standards, while ensuring the best working conditions in partner factories. Reflecting the company’s values, workers must be treated with respect and given the correct tools and safety equipment to fulfill their jobs. The ‘Toxic’ tag indicates a swing away from tired, unimaginative, corporate and dull products to produce bags for people – photographers of all shapes, sizes, ages, genders, colours and cultures.
The range launches with two bags: the Valkyrie backpack for pro or enthusiast photographers who want the ultimate in organisation and comfort and the Wraith messenger bag for on-the-go photographers or drone pilots wanting optimum storage for cameras and accessories. Valkyrie is available in two sizes (20L / 25L) and three stunning colours – Onyx, Emerald, and Sapphire – with RRPs ranging from AU$619 to AU$649. Wraith is available in the same colours and in two sizes (15L / 20L) with prices ranging from AU$449 to AU$499.
Morally Toxic’s bags are made from jacquard fabric that combines an alligator print and a vintage map of Stagsden. It is treated to repel water allowing users not to worry if there is light rain. Dividers inside the bags have built-in pockets, which close with Velcro tabs to allow users to keep cables, lens cloths, filters, spare batteries, etc. organised and tidy. There is also a secret pocket for storing valuable items like passports or money. Each bag has a separate laptop pocket to allow quick access without needing to open the main compartment full of kit. A well-thought-out tripod attachment on the Valkyrie bag means users will be able to place their bag down without needing to remove the tripod. When a tripod isn’t needed, the straps tuck away into their own dedicated pockets. There is also a separate wet-dry pocket for separating wet items, such as jackets, from other equipment.
