The black Change Up Belt Pack from Think Tank will serve you exceptionally well whether you're a photojournalist, sports or PR photographer. This is multi-functional pack that can be used in three different modes - as a belt pack, shoulder bag or chest harness. It's designed to hold two good sized lenses such as a couple of 70-200mm f/2.8s (hoods reversed) or wider lenses like a 16-35mm and 17-40mm (hoods in shooting position). Depending on the camera's size, it can even hold your DSLR. The removable padded insert secures with touch fasteners and can be configured to accommodate the gear you need on any given day.
If you use it as a belt pack, the wide waist belt permits you to arrange it either higher or lower in the front of your body depending on your shooting style. If you wear it as a shoulder bag with its included shoulder strap, merely tuck-away the waist belt and you're ready to go. If you opt for the bag as a chest harness, use the included harness straps to support the bag on both shoulders. No matter how you use the Change Up, it provides excellent weight distribution and will help ease the stress on your hips, back and shoulders. Zippers with handy pull tabs come in handy especially when you're wearing gloves.
The front and side contains stretch pockets for quick access items like batteries, cleaning cloths, cell phone or business cards. The side pockets will even hold a small water bottle. The front also contains a zippered pocket for small accessories like note pad, pens, small pack of tissues or your MP3 player. In the back, a rear zippered pocket holds a note pad or a pair of gloves. Or, it can hold the chest straps when not needed.
The waist belt is tuck-away in design and can be rapidly hidden behind the back pad. Both sides of the bag contain D-rings for strap attachment. To top it off, the Change Up comes with its own rain cover - a must for the outdoor, intrepid photographer. This multi-functional winner comes with Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.
- Can be used as a belt pack, with its shoulder strap for support as a shoulder bag, or worn with the included chest harness straps
- Used as a belt pack, the wide, supportive waist belt allows you to wear it either lower or higher on the front of your body, or even on the side of your hip. Most photographers tend to wear belt packs lower on the front of their bodies to facilitate getting gear in and out of the bag
- After tucking away the waist belt, one shoulder strap can be used so that it appears to be a regular shoulder bag. This is why it's called it the "Change Up": it can appear to be used for one purpose and then changed very easily for another
- The chest/shoulder strap provided with the Change Up is a great way to support the weight of the bag while allowing you to rotate the bag around your body. You can adjust the weight from your shoulder to your hips, and move the bag along your waist with ease
- Modular components attach to the belt. The rails on the waist belt allow Modular components to be attached. Depending on the size of the Modular component, one or two items can be attached per side rail
- The front pockets are made from a stretchable material that allows items like lens caps, back caps, cell phones, business cards, and other essential items to be accessed quickly
- An organizer in the front pocket allows all your essential goodies to be carried, such as your business cards, wallet, notepad, business cards, pens, pencils, aspirin, and MP3 players
- The padded insert is removable and attaches to the inside with touch fasteners. It can easily hold two lenses with large hoods, such as some 70-200mm f/2.8s with the hood reversed, and a wide angle lens like a 16-35mm or 17-40mm with the hood in position
- There is a separate, zippered back pocket for your notepad and other items that you need immediate access to, such as your gloves in cold weather. It is also an excellent place to store the chest straps
- The waist belt can be tucked behind the back pad to make it disappear when the bag is being used as a shoulder bag
- On the back seam of the bag is a handle, and on either side are the D-rings that are used to attach the straps
- "Seam -sealed" means there is a special sealing tape that is applied to the inside seams to make the bag even more water-resistant
- Multipurpose belt pack for lenses, micro 4/3 kits, accessories
