Shimoda looking for backing Bag specialist Shimoda Designs launched a Kickstarter campaign for its Explore v2

The Shimoda Explore v2 positions itself as the ultimate camera bag for travel and landscape photographers. It’s designed to handle serious alpine adventures, with the convenience of a travel backpack, but is equally practical in the city. Key features include a harness for air circulation throughout the rear panel, shoulder straps and belt, padded pockets for 100mm filters and hand baggage compatibility for all three sizes. This adds to the many existing Shimoda features – rear and side access, a height-adjustable harness and modular core unit. The Explore v2 is available in 25L, 30L and 35L. If you want to back this project, the closing date is 30 July 2021. Pledges start at $215 for an Explore v2 30L (shell only), up to $300 or more for an Explore v2 35L Large Kit. Estimated delivery dates are from this September onwards.
