Small-to-medium Mirrorless Camera (e.g. Fujifilm X-T4, Sony A7IV, Canon RP, Nikon Z7 II etc) with small lens attached and two small spare lenses.

Small-to-medium Canon DSLR on it's side with lens attached (e.g. Canon 5D MkIV or Canon 6D MkII with 24-70mm f2.8 lens) plus a spare small-to-medium lens. Maybe a 3rd lens too depending on size.

Two Leica M cameras on their side with lenses attached, possibly a spare lens too.

Small foldable drones such as Mavid Air 2 or Mavic Mini 2 with space to spare.

The 'SP15' and 'SP40' sizes both fit this bag. The 'SP15' has more grip whereas the 'SP40' has more padding. For most customers we recommend the SP40 shoulder pad.

 

Remember to select the correct colour for your bag!

The shoulder pad isn't essential but can stop the strap from digging into your shoulder if you carrying heavy equipment inside the bag or carrying it for long periods. It can also reduce the chances of the bag slipping off your shoulder if you don't wear it across the body. Remember only the 'SP15' and 'SP40' sizes fit this bag. Buying it with the bag will save the postage cost of buying it separately later.

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. If you are buying a black bag it’s particularly worth considering FibreNyte as it will stay looking blacker longer. Also Sage FibreNyte is particularly attractive as a colour – it’s probably the most popular colour among our staff!

No - on this bag the padding is sewn into the walls of the bag. However, the padded dividers are removable (they attach inside with Velcro®).

Yes. AVEA 3 or AVEA 5 end pockets can be attached to this bag.

Yes - it will fit between the padding of the main compartment and the external walls of the bag (and so only be padded on one side). No customer has reported their iPad getting damaged in this position but adding a small, slim case to the device might be a sensible precaution.

 

Larger sizes of iPad such as the 9.7", 10.2" and 11" versions will not fit.
