Indiegogo Highlight :: miggo Agua Storm-proof Camera and Drone Bags
Crowdfunding is fast becoming the world’s go-to platform for new releases. But do you ever find it hard to cut through the noise and pin down the ones worth your hard-earned? Well, that’s where this new sponsored series comes in. We’re vetting Indiegogo projects for you, digging up the facts, and shedding light on the ones we think are worth a closer look.
This week’s selection: miggo and their Agua series of storm-proof camera and drone bags.
Focusing in on weatherproof protection
miggo have made a name for themselves through creating thoughtful solutions to camera carry problems. And their latest collection is no exception. The Agua series of stormproof bags are designed to keep the elements out while ensuring you always get those great shots in. A combination of quick access and IPX3-standard protection against the elements keeps you prepared no matter where your photography sessions take you.
The series consists of three bags. The Agua Versa Backpack and Agua Sling accommodate DSLR cameras, while the Agua Drone Lander is designed for use with Mavic and Spark drones. Each bag is crafted with durable tarpaulin, water-repellent zippers, and comfortable carry options to keep you moving easily in urban and outdoor environments alike.
Agua Versa Backpack – Camera bag to everyday carry
This versatile pack does double duty as a photography bag and EDC bag. A removable padded insert protects photographic gear on the go, with side access to get to your gear quickly when the need arises.
The bag offers dedicated storage for up to a 14.5″ laptop and tablet, as well as three weatherproof exterior pockets for frequently used items. Plus with interior space for a powerbank and an exterior USB connector with two ports, you can easily charge USB devices on the move by adding a powerbank to your carry setup. The Versa Backpack fits a full-format DSLR (for example a Canon 5D Mark IV or similar), along with two professional lenses including a 70-200mm f2.8, as well as a flash.
A choice of three carry modes let you easily adapt to changing environments and needs, including backpack mode, sling mode for quick access, and X-position. And with its rigid base you can breathe a little easier knowing your gear is protected against impacts in case the bag is dropped or bumped.
Agua Drone Lander – Clean protection for urban and outdoor adventures
Rugged wilderness, sandy beaches, urban landscapes…the Agua Drone Lander handles them all with ease. This sling-style bag keeps expensive drones protected from the elements and impacts with its weatherproof build and padded insert.
Pockets and removable dividers let you organize your gear and customize setups for different needs, with space for a drone, accessories and a small tablet.
Another key feature is the launch mat, which provides a handy base from which to launch or land, and can also double as a work station to keep your gear clean from rain, snow, mud, dust or dirt. And for added carry comfort, the bag also comes with a stabilizer strap for more active use.
Agua Sling – Rapid access for those unexpected moments
Never miss a shot with the Agua Sling, which keeps camera gear easily accessible through a side opening. The sling’s wide, padded strap and included stabilizer strap keep you comfortable on the move, and the rigid bottom delivers impact protection for peace of mind.
The bag is designed to hold a full-format DSLR camera, three professional lenses including a 70-200mm f2.8, plus a flash. A dedicated laptop pocket holds up to a 13.5″ device, and exterior attachment points let you secure a tripod. Like the backpack, the sling also offers external USB charging ports and a luggage passthrough sleeve. Rounding things off is a weatherproof front pocket that keeps EDC or frequently used camera accessories at the ready.
The Agua series helps you roam more freely, secure in the knowledge that your camera gear is protected against the elements and impacts, quickly accessible, and comfortable to carry. Want to enjoy that freedom for yourself? Zoom over to miggo’s Indiegogo campaign to snap them up.
Note: this is a sponsored series, but only the best candidates are given this feature placement.
Above are the facts, but there’s always a little risk when backing a crowdfunder, so keep that in mind before you decide to back/purchase. 😉
