Anyone who's a serious gearhead starts frothing at the mouth when the words "Snow Peak" come up in conversation. The Japanese company is introducing a new collection of camera bags and accessories and if anyone is going to get it right, it's Snow Peak.
At the center of the collection is their backpack which is dripping with features and has a couple of new tricks we haven't seen in a camera bag. The interior of the bag has padded compartments for your camera body and lenses, straps for your tripod, a laptop sleeve, and even a hip pocket that gives you quick access to small accessories.
Designed as a system, accessories like the System Strap can be used with the backpack's straps and the shoulder bag is designed to fit into the backpack's compartments and then can be removed to be used on its own. There's also a hand strap accessory and a "rain scarf" that has a DWR coating to shield your camera from the rain.The scarf can also be used as a protective wrap just in case the weather becomes unpredictable.
American release is TBD, more info at store.snowpeak.jp
