Shimoda Designs Action X50 Backpack

Perfect to take all your video, drone, and photo gear wherever your next Adventure takes you.

Shimoda Designs Action X50 Backpack

This is the best backpack I've ever owned.

I spent about 4 months researching a backpack that could carry all my drone and camera equipment accross the country and survive the our countless adventures in some pretty harsh environments. This pack has tons of dedicated, paded space for fragile photo/video equipment along with all the functionality of my old work laptop backpack.

The Action X50 is great as a carry on item for the plane, and has countless pockets to keep everything organized. The cover photo was taken at Gran Cenote in Tulum Mexico during a tourental rain shower.

I had no worries that my equipment was nice and dry while still having access to all the contents.

I love this bag in the aiport especially. I'm on a plane almost every week, and this pack is always by my side. The convienice of the sholder stap pockets keeps my passport, money, and travel documents easily accesible at all times.

The quick access side allows my to whip out my DSL without having to open the whole bag.

The cavernous roll top allows me to pack as much as I need, and customize the total size of the bag based on what I need to carry.

Multiple Access Points - The Shimoda Action X50 backpack offers rear and side access options. The side opening is ideal for quick, under-the-arm access without completely removing the pack, and the rear opening allows wide, unobstructed access to the bulk of your gear for less time-sensitive shooting situations.

Adjustable Torso Height - The X50 has 4 height options with approximately 10 cm (4 in) of vertical adjustment. This means the same backpack can fit short or tall — male or female — torso heights, ensuring a custom fit for everyone.

Core Unit Modular Camera Insert System – Core Units provide shockproof protection for Mirrorless, SLR and DSLR cameras and lenses, and they ensure a user never carries more padding and weight than necessary. A user can increase their layout options with two or more Core Units by stacking and shifting how they are placed in our camera pack.

Expandable Roll-Top - The roll top can expand with a volume range of 7-liters so the bag can be adjusted to your gear needs while maintaining a tight and compact fit.

Sport-Friendly Design - With action sport-specific features like a removable helmet holder, ski fastening straps, hydration routing and extra durable materials to help protect the pack from abrasion, Action X packs are designed to perform seamlessly for photographers and filmmakers who like to be embedded in the action.

Options: Female customers have the option of choosing a set of Women’s Straps at no charge.
