Camera backpacks are becoming one of the most popular ways for active photographers to carry all of their gear. There are several very good reasons for that. They enable you to pack lots of equipment and carry it hands-free and more inconspicuously than conventional bags, just to name a few. If you're not carrying your gear in one yet, there's even more reason to start now, thanks to a new line of backpacks built with a new twist that we think photographers are going to love.
"Strength From Within" is the slogan for Rival backpacks and their unique Camera Cells from Ikigai(tm) and it's a testament to their design concept. What makes these backpacks different is what's inside. Instead of just breaking up the inside of the pack into sections, they've created a new system based on removable “Camera Cells” that can be customized to fit the gear you're carrying, inserted in the pack for easy toting, then completely and easily removed when you're ready to use the equipment.
Thanks to this innovative system, you can quickly and securely pack all the photo equipment and accessories you need for a shoot, close the cell securely and slip it into the pack, then add the other stuff you're going to need to take with you. When you arrive at the location, you simply remove the Camera Cell with its carrying handle, unzip it and grab the gear you need, without rummaging through everything else. All the personal items stay in the pack while you focus on the business of shooting.
Camera Cells are fully padded, with a tough exterior and come with color coded Velcro-attached dividers to allow you to fully customize the interior to fit the equipment you need to pack. Multiple zipper closures secure the gear inside while allowing quick, easy access to all of the equipment or just one or two items as needed. There are no complicated layers, just lots of safe, configurable space for your camera, lenses and other photo equipment. You can change it up as needed for each shoot or better yet, have a uniquely-configured Cell for each shooting situation.
The packs are everything you'd expect in a piece of high-quality outdoor gear. They're rugged, form fitting, and designed with all the features needed for maximum comfort and accessibility. From top and side openings, to mesh outer pockets and detachable tripod carrying systems, they're engineered to pack as much as possible in the smallest possible space. Ergonomic design, sculpted and padded backs, rigid bottoms and removable rain covers are just a few of the great features you'll find on both of the models currently available.
If you spend any time in the field, for any type of photography, you'll appreciate the advantages of this new system. If you “change hats” often between genres, you'll really enjoy the versatility it offers. Go take a look for yourself! Visit http://us.ikigaibags.com to see their full product line today!
