The Airline Stowaway certainly won’t fit a DSLR but it will fit smaller cameras such as a mirrorless with a short lens, small fixed lens camera or rangefinder. See a list of example cameras and binoculars below.

The main compartment is padded on all 4 sides, plus the base. This makes it ideal to protect your equipment whilst travelling.

 

For ease of access the compartment features a double zip.

Hidden pockets

Hidden pockets


The Airline Stowaway (and Compact Stowaway and Pola Stowaway) have plenty of pockets.

 

A zip down the side of the bag gives you access to a pocket that’s ideal for a passport. The zip on the front flap is perfect for a memory card.

Belt loops

Belt loops


Two stitched belt loops on the back to allow your hands to keep free when travelling or out in the field.

 

Just behind the belt loops is a deep dump pocket.

Discrete and slim

Discrete and slim


The particularly discrete styling of the bag means that it doesn’t look like a camera bag at all – ideal for travelling without drawing attention.

A small rangefinder camera (e.g. Leica M10 with small lens attached) with space for a passport, tickets, memory card, smartphone etc.

A small mirrorless camera (e.g. Leica CL, Canon EOS M6, Sony A6400, Fujifilm X-E4, Olympus PEN E-PL8 with small lens attached) with space for a passport, tickets, memory card, smartphone etc.

A small fixed lens camera (e.g. Fujifilm X100F, Sony RX100 VII, Leica C-Lux etc) with space for a passport, tickets, memory card, smartphone etc.

Small-to-medium binoculars (e.g. Leica Ultravid HD-Plus 8x50 or Swarovski EL 10X50 WB) with space for passport, tickets, smartphone etc.

Yes - however it would go in the same padded compartment as the camera (if you carried a camera). This might limit what camera you can carry inside the bag.

No. The fabric is made of 3 layers - the middle layer is butyl rubber. Water cannot pass through this butyl rubber layer. As long as you don't get a hole in the fabric or expose it to harsh chemicals (for example in a washing machine) the fabric should remain waterproof for many years. There is no need to apply re-proofing.

In simple terms ‘Canvas’ or ‘FibreNyte’ refers to top layer of fabric on our bags – the facecloth.

 

‘Canvas’ is a mix of cotton and polyester. ‘FibreNyte’ refers to our face fabric that is completely synthetic. Canvas is hard wearing, FibreNyte is very hard wearing.

 

Both fabrics are bonded to a non-wicking polyester backing fabric with a middle layer butyl rubber – this rubber layer makes both fabrics equally (and very) waterproof. Water can’t get through that rubber layer.

 

Both fabrics have a similar weave - the FibreNyte looks similar to canvas. Canvas is slightly softer to the touch, FibreNyte is slightly rougher to the touch.

 

People tend to choose Canvas if they want the bag to age gracefully and look vintage over time. This is particularly true of people who choose our ‘Khaki Canvas’ fabric as this looks particularly lovely as it ages.

 

People tend to choose FibreNyte if they want the bag to look newer for longer or if they are particularly hard on their gear - for example by carrying the bag to work with them every day, doing a lot of hiking or filling it particularly full. Also Sage FibreNyte is particularly attractive as a colour – it’s probably the most popular colour among our staff!

Yes the shoulder sling can be removed (and reattached after).

Yes - the SP10 shoulder pad fits. Other sizes do not fit.

 

Make sure to choose the colour to match your bag!

Yes it is! It can be adjusted between 1000mm (39⅜") and 1750mm (68⅞") approx.

The shoulder pad isn't essential but can stop the strap from digging into your shoulder if you're carrying a heavy gear inside the bag. It can also reduce the chances of the bag slipping off your shoulder. If you do buy a shoulder pad remember only the 'SP10' size fits.

 

Make sure to choose the colour to match your bag!

Yes! It should carry small-to-medium sized binoculars - just double check their size against the internal dimensions of the bag.

They are all the same design and vary only in their size:

 

  • The Airline is taller than the Compact and the Pola
  • The Pola is wider than the Compact and the Airline.

No. The inside of this bag is made with a sheer fabric - therefore it is not possible to attach any of our Velcro® dividers inside.

 

You may want to consider the 'Pola Stowaway' instead. This has the same sheer fabric inside but some sizes of SuperFlex Partition will fit inside to provide the ability to divide up the space.
