Although I still cringe at the name ‘Streetwalker’, this series of bags has got you covered when it comes to safely travelling with your camera gear and the HardDrive V2.0 is no different.
This large capacity bag can hold one gripped, one standard DSLR, 5–7 standard zoom lenses, a 15” laptop and a 13” tablet or one gripped DSLR, 5–7 standard zoom lenses, a flash, a 15” laptop and a 13” tablet, plus it can house a maximum lens size of 200–400mm f/4 (example- Canon 1DxII (x2), 70–200mm f/2.8 attached, 16–35 f/2.8 attached, a 24–70mm f/2.8, 100mm f/2.8 macro, 50mm f/1.2, 2x teleconverter, 600EXII flash, 15” MacBook Pro and a 12.9” iPad Pro).
There is a tripod mount on front panel of the bag and a tripod cup for larger tripods, included on ‘Pro’ and HardDrive versions of the bag, the rear internal pockets can also store documents or magazines. There are dedicated device storage compartments, the laptop pocket measures up at 10” W x 16.1” H x 0.9” D (25.5 x 41 x 2.2 cm), the Tablet at 8.9” W x 11.9” H x 0.4” D (22.5 × 30.3 × 1 cm), and the phone pocket is 3.9” W x 7.5” H x 0.6” D (10 × 19 × 1.5 cm).
For all-day comfort there are thick padded shoulder straps and a 320G air-mesh back panel that provides ventilation to help keep you cooler on long treks. The lightweight materials and slim profile design helps you move around even in tight spots, like the streets of Venice or budget supermarkets. To protect your gear from the elements the Streetwalker is made from a tough ballistic nylon and YKK RC Fuse zips and a seam-sealed rain cover is ready for action in its dedicated pocket. The interior dividers are fully customisable to your gear profile, whilst the front organiser pocket is useful for storing spare batteries, memory cards and other small accessories, compatible with Camera Support Straps, Thin Skin and Pro Speed Camera Belts, which are available at an additional cost.
The Streetwalker HardDrive V2.0 is a wonderfully made bag that is as versatile as it is tough. It is comfortable to wear even when fully loaded and permits instant access to all your belongings. RRP $229.75
