Kickstarter Highlight: VINTA Type II Camera Bag and Travel Kit
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 sponsored series comes in. We’re vetting carry Kickstarters for you, digging up the facts, and shedding light on the ones we think are worth a closer look.
This week’s selection: VINTA and their Type II Camera Bag and Travel Kit.
Following the photo…wherever it leads
With photography, there’s always the potential to find a great shot round every corner. Unfortunately, a lot of camera bags can’t match your spontaneous search for that next frame-worthy photo. Some work well in the outdoors but look awkward in urban settings, while others look sharp on city streets but can’t cut it off the beaten path. But VINTA were convinced they could offer an alternative. A bag that didn’t place limits on where your lens could lead.
Turns out, they really could. And it’s called the Type II Backpack.
For the traveler, photographer and EDCer
The VINTA Type II is a sleek camera bag. But it’s also a travel bag. An EDC bag. An embrace-adventure bag. The modular and multifunctional design lets you tailor the bag to a variety of needs, whether you’re commuting to the office, keeping things stylish for wedding photography, or hauling your gear up hills in search of that epic sunset shot.
The backpack can be paired with a removable Camera Pack or Travel Pack, so you can easily adjust your carry setup to different environments and requirements. The Camera Pack fits up to four lenses, two camera bodies and accessories, with customizable dividers to easily adjust to a range of loads. Additionally, a side strap enables convenient exterior tripod carry.
From a stint in the studio to a weekend getaway, this bag easily keeps up with your busy and varied lifestyle.
Organization for all your essentials
Whether you’re working or wandering, having your tech close at hand is useful. The Type II backpack offers a dedicated laptop sleeve that fits up to a 15″ device, with secure back panel access that also comes in handy for zipping through airport security.
How about the little things? The backpack has you covered there too, with quick-access front and side pockets to keep smaller EDC, travel and camera essentials within rummage-free reach. And for even more flexibility, the side pockets are expandable to make carrying that extra bit easier.
Elegance in the face of the elements
You can’t always predict when rain or snow will strike, or where your next adventure or shoot might lead. But a combination of durable weatherproof twill and water-resistant zippers keeps your gear safe from the elements. Waterfall spray? Unexpected showers? No problem. You can roam secure in the knowledge that your precious gear is protected, all in a design that lends suave sophistication to any carry setup.
Versatility meets value for money
The versatility of the VINTA Type II Backpack delivers great value for money. No need to spend your hard-earned cash on multiple bags. No need to clutter up your storage space. With just one backpack you can venture from urban environments to the outdoors, taking travel, photography and day-to-day needs equally in stride. Do more and go further by snapping up your very own Type II pack on VINTA’s Kickstarter campaign, which runs until 19 January 2018.
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.
