Customary Barge Deluxe
Half photo bag. Half cargo bag. Half 17-inch laptop bag. The fractionally enigmatic Customary Barge backpack lets you carry all manner of must-haves and nice-to-haves with minimum fuss, maximum comfort and optimum protection.
Access to the three-part harmony of storage compartments is easy. The CB’s sling-able harness system and front openings allowing you to get whatever you need without removing it from your shoulder.
Supplied with three shape-shifting snake walls, the bag’s 24-litre capacity is sufficient to hold and hug either a video cam or compact DLSR with twin lens kit, plus accessories, and still have room for your Vegemite sandwiches.
FLEXIBLE, ACCESSIBLE SPACE
To ensure you can put in lots of gear, we first put in lots of thought and looked at professional photographers’ needs from every angle. That’s why…
The photo compartment features:
a fully configurable and fully removable padded equipment pod with two 28-inch brushed padded nylon
snake walls, four velcro and brushed padded nylon capping straps and eight double-sided velcro fasteners
a large internal pocket with zipper
- a zippered elasticised mesh pocket
The cargo compartment features:
- a fully configurable, fully removable, padded bag with two 28-inch brushed padded nylon snake walls, two
double-sided velcro fasteners, integrated carry loop and zipper
- a velcro-fastened padded laptop compartment large enough to hold a 17-inch laptop
The front of the bag features:
- a large, gusseted external pocket with hooded zipper
The side of the bag features:
- left and right stuff pockets with elasticised mesh openings
- upper and lower loops for use with the included tripod pouch
EQUIPMENT-HUGGING SNAKE WALLS
Bend them… shape them… anyway you want… to hold your camera, camcorder or accessories firmly in place. Arguably the greatest photographic advance since the Camera Obscura, the shape-shifting snake wall employs double-sided velcro fasteners and brushed padded nylon ribbing to create 28 inches of equipment-hugging peace of mind.
DETACHABLE CARGO COMPARTMENT BAG
A bag within a bag that can be removed entirely when not required, this handy-sized hold-a-lot with zipper and integrated carry loop can be used for additional photographic gear – or anything but.
DETACHABLE PHOTO COMPARTMENT TRAY
Want to spend some time with your Customary Barge sans camera gear? Easy. Just detach the photo compartment tray from its side and bottom velcro fasteners, and the two of you are footloose and photo free.
FULLY ADJUSTABLE ERGONOMIC CARRYING SYSTEM
Wide, body contoured and filled to the gills with EVA foam, the Customary Barge’s fully adjustable ergonomic harness straps combine with chest and detachable waist belts to distribute weight evenly across your body. Location shoots will never be a pain in the neck again.
PADDED CARRY HANDLE
The easiest pick up since Britney went off her meds, the Customary Barge’s carry handle features EVA foam cushioning for comfort and double weave flamed polypropylene for strength and durability.
You + tripod = five legs, three of them under one arm. You + The Customary Barge = two legs + two arms when you use the included tripod pouch to secure your three-legged friend to the bag.
To help wick away perspiration into the sweatasphere, the rear of the bag and underside of its harness both feature Air Mesh padding. The rear also features venting channels to keep fresh air circulating between the bag and your back.
DUAL ACCESSORY LOOPS
The injection moulded D-ring accessory loop on each harness strap lets you attach various photo-gidgetry and gadgetry for instant access.
Hardly noticeable by day. Highly obvious at night. The retro reflective strips on the Customary Barge’s harness straps are the bag’s least and most eye-catching feature.
Be it rain, hail, sleet, snow, beer or mixed drinks, the bag’s 900D outer is designed to weather the storm and keep your equipment dry as a nun’s gusset.
The 900D and Air Mesh outer, and brushed padded nylon interior and snake wall, combine phenomenal strength with exceptional smoothness and malleability. Your clothes don’t catch. Your equipment don’t get scratched.
Polyethylene-EVA foam laminate at the back and base ensure the bag holds its shape, even when loaded up to pussy’s bow.
Designed to outlast its lifetime guarantee, the bag features a super strength water resistant 900D outer, 300D Rip-stop lining, flamed polypropylene webbing, triple strength S-Bend webbing attachment, injection moulded velcro and bonded nylon thread with bar tack stitching on all stress points.
