This Shimoda Designs Action X50 Backpack Starter Kit includes a black Shimoda Designs Action X50 Backpack and a Parisian Nights-colored Shimoda Designs Medium DSLR Core Unit Version 2.
A versatile, multiuse bag, the Action X50 Backpack can accommodate the combined interests of the adventure photographer, multimedia creator, hiker, or mountain sports enthusiast. Inside, its spacious main compartment has a partition system that forms an optional bottom section that enhances the ability to organize the backpack's contents when used with the Shimoda Designs Medium DSLR Core Unit Version 2. Created to store and organize camera, video, audio, or digital media equipment, the Medium DSLR Core Unit Version 2 complements the Action X50 Backpack by also featuring a zippered side opening that aligns with the Action X50 Backpack's own zippered side opening for seamless accessibility to the equipment inside when the bag is rotated from one's back to front with the right side facing upward.
When the partition system is enabled, the space created above the Medium DSLR Core Unit Version 2 can then be dedicated to a variety of items such as outdoor gear or packable clothing that can be reached quickly and conveniently through the backpack's top opening. A rolltop design allows the wearer to easily compress the backpack according to the specific amount of equipment placed inside it, which also serves to effectively seal out moisture and dust. When the backpack is firmly rolled shut, the top can be secured using its integrated side-release buckle closure. For use under inclement weather, a secondary, zippered closure is included along the top of the Action X50 Backpack which also provides access to organizational pockets for items that need to be accessed quickly and conveniently, such as snacks, a pair of sunglasses, or music player earphones.
If the Action X50 Backpack is placed on the ground or a flat surface, complete access to the Medium DSLR Core Unit Version 2 is provided by a swing-out zippered panel that faces the wearer's back. Along the inside of the rear-facing zippered panel is the Action X50 Backpack's 15" laptop sleeve. The backpack's front panel unzips to provide reveal additional organizational pockets as well as space to store packable clothing and can accommodate a hydration pack while featuring an opening for the hydration pack's sip tube along the right of the wearer.
The Action X50 Backpack can be lifted via its built-in haul and side handles, and carried by its adjustable, padded shoulder straps which can be adjusted upward or downward for a better fit. A zipper along the outer edge of the strap which rests over the wearer's left shoulder opens a smartphone pocket, while the outer edge of the strap which rests over the wearer's right shoulder includes a stretchable side pocket that can accommodate a sunscreen tube, insect spray, snacks, or a water bottle. For heavy loads, this backpack's removable waist belt transfers weight to the hips for additional comfort, while the sternum strap further limits unintentional shifting around the wearer.
Featuring a durable, nylon construction, the Action X50 Backpack is built to be weather resistant. To further protect its contents should the bag be placed on a wet surface, the bottom panel is waterproof.
