miggo Announces New ‘Agua’ Storm-Proof Bag Collection
If you haven’t yet heard of miggo, you should have. Famed for the release of their game-changing Pictar iPhone camera grip, they have once again thundered onto the scene with the announcement of expanding its ‘agua’ range – a collection of storm-proof camera bags. Whilst they say lightning doesn’t strike twice, miggo may prove the exception to the rule, as the three new packs – titled the Versa, Sling and Drone Lander – are loaded with features perfect for professionals and amateurs alike. Launching on Indiegogo, this is the fourth crowdfunder in miggo’s history, as a project offering a combination of both style and functionality to a tee.
Co-founder Guy Sprukt states, “The crowdfunding arena is the place where we bring products to life and is also a way for a young brand like ours to gather real feedback from consumers and implement changes before the final product is brought to market. The new bags we’re announcing today are backed by significant R&D offer a completely different approach to carrying photographic gear and drones.”
So as a hold from typical everyday gear to bulkier DSLRs and drones, whilst sporting IPX3-standard storm-proof credentials as a result of their durable tarpaulin design, this is one crowdfunding campaign placed firmly on our radar.
Agua Versa Backpack
Versa by name and versatile by nature, this bag is ideal for everyday use whilst keeping your gear safe and secure through a removable modular support system. Boasting three optional carrying modes (backpack, sling and X position), the pack provides quick and easy access when shooting, allowing you to adapt to every situation.
The company claim a capacity of “a full-format DSLR such as Canon 5D Mark 4 (or similar), two professional lenses including 70-200 f2.8 and a flash”, along with a host of other features, including a removable insert for your gear, external charging access, an exclusive interior pocket for laptops or iPads and a total of three storm-proof outer pockets. With total weather protection and a rigid base for first-rate impact protection, this bag would suit any photographer hitting the streets or heading out into the wild.
Agua Drone Lander
For drone-operators looking for a new way to house their kit, this bag provides a home for the popular Mavic or Spark drones, as well as others similar in size. Designed for portability across extreme terrains, this pack touts a slim shape without compromising on protection, offering a “padded three-layer insert with dedicated space for the drone and all its accessories”.
When the time comes to hit the skies, the bag provides a landing mat with dual functionality as an assembly station, ensuring safety at both ends of the flight. Again providing tough weather protection, the bag combines a primary padded strap and diagonal strap to stay snug during longer hikes and avoid unnecessary backaches.
The Sling is the pack for those with portability as their priority; with quick-draw capability emerging from a uniquely compact design centred on a single, padded strap. Housing an unexpected amount of gear, miggo states a capacity of “a full-format DSLR camera such as Canon 5D Mark 4 (or similar), three professional lenses including 70-200 f2.8, and a flash.”
Again crafted from durable tarpaulin with a rigid thermoforming bottom layer, the pack affords protection across all elements and terrains. In addition to this, the ague Sling has a storm-proof exterior pocket, external charging port and an exclusive laptop or iPad pocket.
The miggo agua Versa, Sling and Drone Lander bags will retail for $219, $179 and $169 respectively. Grab them on pre-order for a discounted Indiegogo pricing of $169, $139 and $129.
