The Shimoda Explore camera bag system was born as a result of the pain, fatigue, and suffering we and our adventure photographer friends found ourselves facing in the mountains. We created a system designed to function in - and stand up to - the extreme mountain conditions we inevitably face.
Here's how it works:
The perfect daypack for action-driven adventure photographers.
We created the Explore 40 for fast moving and agile adventure photographers who need to be in the action to document their story. It was designed to simplify their shooting experience while minimizing physical fatigue. Its intuitive design ensures essentials like food, water and a smartphone are always in immediate reach.
The Explore 40 was designed to set an all-new standard in adventure photography daypacks.
The definitive backpack for gear-obsessed adventure photographers.
Ready for any and every adventure, the Explore 60 redefines the way serious adventure-bound photographers pursue their passion. We wanted the user experience to be simple and intuitive while ensuring its carry performance minimises fatigue and stress.
With side and rear access to gear, a height-adjustable shoulder harness and direct access to food, water and mobile devices, the Explore 60 helps keep adventurers moving forward with limited interruptions. Approximately 15 litres of adjustable volume via a floating lid lets the most demanding photographers take on multiple adventures without needing to compromise their gear carry needs. The floating lid also provides a secure way to quickly fasten jackets, touring skins and other adventure gear.
Lightweight, durable and intuitively functional, the Explore 60 is destined to be a new favourite addition to the demanding adventure photographer’s toolkit.
Camera Inserts are an amazing modular development for camera bags, but previous designs have suffered from limited uses as well as excess weight and materials. Most insert designs force you into a single size choice that often leads to numerous expensive purchases of different sized inserts to satisfy various packing needs.
We rethought modular camera inserts. Shimoda offers multi-configurable Core Units in Small and Medium sizes. Combined or alone they allow for side, rear and top access configurations. Our 2-size system offers over 10 insert configurations to customise the amount of camera and adventure gear for the day ahead of you.
Shimoda has developed three sizes of Accessory Cases in order to provide the smartest modular storage solution for an adventure photographer’s needs. Whether carrying portable hard drives, batteries, remotes, a sound kit or lots of smaller items like cables, our translucent shell and internal sub-compartments ensure a fast and organized workflow.
