Shimoda Designs X70 Overview

This Shimoda Designs Action X70 Backpack Starter Kit includes an army green Shimoda Designs Action X70 Backpack and a Parisian Nights-colored Shimoda Designs X-Large DV Core Unit.

The Action X70 Backpack is a versatile, multiuse bag that can accommodate the combined interests of the adventure photographer, videographer, multimedia creator, hiker, overnight camper, or mountain sports enthusiast. Inside, its spacious main compartment has a partition system that forms an optional bottom section that enhances the ability to organize this backpack's contents when used with the included Shimoda Designs X-Large DV Core Unit. Constructed for fully-featured digital cinema cameras, the X-Large DV Core Unit is designed for visual recording equipment and accessories that require up to 7.8" of depth protection while inside an upright backpack.

When the partition system is enabled, the space created above the X-Large DV Core Unit can then be dedicated to a variety of items such as outdoor gear or packable clothing that can be reached quickly and conveniently through the backpack's top opening. A rolltop design allows the wearer to easily compress the backpack according to the specific amount of equipment placed inside it, which also serves to effectively seal out moisture and dust. When the backpack is firmly rolled shut, the top can be secured using its integrated side-release buckle closure. For use under inclement weather, a secondary, zippered closure is included along the top of the Action X70 Backpack which also provides access to organizational pockets for items that need to be accessed quickly and conveniently, such as snacks, a pair of sunglasses, or music player earphones.

If the Action X70 Backpack is placed on the ground or a flat surface, complete access to the X-Large DV Core Unit is provided by a swing-out zippered panel that faces the wearer's back. Along the inside of the rear-facing zippered panel is the Action X70 Backpack's 15" laptop sleeve. The backpack's front panel unzips to provide reveal additional organizational pockets as well as space to store packable clothing and can accommodate a hydration pack while featuring an opening for the hydration pack's sip tube along the right of the wearer.

The Action X70 Backpack can be lifted via its built-in haul and side handles, and carried by its adjustable, padded shoulder straps which can be adjusted upward or downward for a better fit. A zipper along the outer edge of the strap which rests over the wearer's left shoulder opens a smartphone pocket, while the outer edge of the strap which rests over the wearer's right shoulder includes a stretchable side pocket that can accommodate a sunscreen tube, insect spray, snacks, or a water bottle. For heavy loads, this backpack's removable waist belt transfers weight to the hips for additional comfort, while the sternum strap further limits unintentional shifting around the wearer.

Featuring a durable, nylon construction, the Action X70 Backpack is built to be weather resistant. To further protect its contents should the bag be placed on a wet surface, the bottom panel is waterproof.

If it is the Sony FE 600mm F/4 it will fit in Shimoda Designs Action X70 Backpack Starter Kit with X-Large DV Core Unit (Army Green) but it will be very tight, will probably only fit without the lens hood.

How many liter is the hydration bladder? How large a bladder will it take and is the compartment waterproof to protect my camera? Also at this time I weigh 350lbs down from 500lbs. and I stand 5'11" will this fit me? Thank you for your time.
Asked by: Steven
The front panel of the Shimoda Designs Action X70 Backpack Starter Kit with X-Large DV Core Unit (Black) is quite large and should be able to hold a 3L hydration pouch. This bag would comfortably fit a person with a height of 5'11" who weighs 350 lb. The backpack is weather resistant and the bottom panel is waterproof.
