The X30 from Shimoda is a full featured mobile studio rig for adventure filmmakers and hobbyists alike.
Carbonate coated, abrasion resistant ripstop nylon. YKK Splashguard zippers. TPU Compression straps. Killer foams in the back panel and straps… the materials on this pack are durable, protective and lightweight.
Shimoda’s camera cubes are durable and very solidly built. Come in multiple sizes and shapes for different sized camera gear.
The foam, the shape of the straps, the adjustability of the harness vertically, the hip straps, the optional women’s shoulder straps… this thing is as comfortable as I’ve found with my heavy-ass minimal studio gear on my back.
