Alotech camera bag now on Kickstarter: designed for wildlife photographers by wildlife photographers

This new Alotech camera bag is now listed for funding on Kickstarter - "designed for wildlife photographers by wildlife photographers":

  • Contouring to fit the natural curve of your spine (see ya later, back pain!)
  • Adjustable suspension system to fit ALL torsos the right way, whether you’re 5’1” or 6’7”
  • Immediate access to essential gear, so you never miss a shot
  • Strategically-placed ventilation, to make hotspots and back sweat a thing of the past
  • Clever weight distribution technology so 40 pounds of gear feels like 15 by shifting the weight off your shoulders and onto your hips
  • An independently rotating harness system (trust us - it’s hard to say, but great to have!) that significantly reduces side-to-side sway so you’re more comfortable and stable on rough terrain
  • Tripod carry to suit your preference (seriously, there are 4 different options); all positioned so you never have to unstrap your tripod to access the main compartment
  • An easy-store interior, that has a home for everything (no more equipment hide-and-seek!)
  • Durable, waterproof fabrication that protects your gear, even in the harshest conditions
  • Quick-clean, velcro-free interior so you never have to worry about dirt or sand damaging your equipment

Here are some of the bag's features:
