Vanguard: Style for the Outdoor Photographer

Share

Are you creating your own adventure, scouring the stores for a camera bag that has both outdoor functionality and stealth style? According to Vanguard's Director of Sales and Marketing, Doug Feldner, "supporting the 'real' photographer" is the commitment of Vanguard. "Real" refers to those who, whether they be professional or amateur, love utilizing their camera to create fantastic images. Vanguard has added two new lines for "real" photographers to its award-winning camera bag selection. The two new lines are called Sedona and Reno. The Sedona line has both slings (two sizes) and backpacks (three sizes) that are rugged, like their namesake. The Reno line also lives up to its namesake with shoulder bags (two sizes), a sling (one size), and backpacks (three sizes) perfect for urban outdoor photography adventures.

"The bags can be easily transformed from daypacks to full-gear backpacks, and then to everyday backpacks."

All bags in the Sedona line resemble everyday outdoor hiking backpacks but also have a rugged beauty, similar to the line's namesake. With amazing protection for your camera gear, the bags are made of lightweight ripstop nylon. The bags can be easily transformed from daypacks to full-gear backpacks, and then to everyday backpacks. Each Sedona bag has a multiple hanging system, which includes two higher front straps to hold large accessories, such as sleeping bags. A tripod, monopod, or walking stick can also be attached to each bag easily.

With room for everything you need, the Sedona 34 Sling Bag (Blue, Khaki/Green, Black) is perfect for the on-the-go photographer who likes the idea of easy access to his or her gear. When configured as a daypack, the Sedona 34 Sling Bag has a space for personal items in its upper compartment and will hold one DSLR with lens attached, a flash, accessories (memory cards, batteries, and charger), and a small tablet.

If you want to use the bag as an everyday backpack, just remove the protective camera insert. Your gear is easily accessible through a side zipper, so there is no need to even put your bag on the ground. Comfort is also accessible and ever-present with the sling's breathable suspension system and detachable chest harness. This sling is perfect for hiking, with its water-bottle pocket and included rain cover, which can be hidden when not in use.
