Shimoda Explore 40: The perfect outdoor camera bag? I think so!

Shimoda Explore 40: The perfect outdoor camera bag? I think so!

It’ll probably take less time to find the holy grail than it would to find the perfect camera bag. Everyone has their own distinct needs and there are only so many ways that you can innovate in this space. That’s why I am so pleasantly surprised when I find a bag company that really takes a different approach and rethinks the way photographers use them. I’ve been using the Shimoda Explore 40 adventure photography bag since last December and in that time, I’ve really fallen in love with it. I know that’s an odd sentiment to have over a camera bag but that’s just the way it is and to illustrate why, I created this video. Give it a watch and let me know what you think? Can you see yourself using this bag?

    I am very curious as to how you access your camera gear without putting the bag down. In your video you show a person accessing a camera on a front pouch and also from the side. In neither case does the person have to put the bag down. A short video demonstrating would be great

    what about food and drinks, heat blanket etc.. how do you carry those items , and how do you make good snapshots, how often do you use your tripod on a trip, about 90% of my pictures are made on tripod, when walking I walk with my tripod in my hand with a quick clicksystem on it

    You gloss over the hydration bladder pass through. For me the bladder is the most important thing after the camera stowing. Does the backpack have a dedicated hydration bladder location?
