Vanguard 38 overview

  • 1Description

The black Heralder 38 Bag from Vanguard is a get-around bag designed for the photographer/videographer who doesn't have much time to fumble around retrieving gear from his bag. It's designed to hold a bevy of gear - 1-2 pro DSLR with grip, 5-6 lenses(up to 300mm f/4); plus a laptop up to 15.0" (38.1 cm) wide screen size that is held in its own separate compartment, numerous accessories and a tripod neatly held in its own sling.

The polyester exterior material is rated weather-proof but the bag comes with a removable rain cover that can be quickly deployed if you're outside and the weather turns against you. Inside, there is more polyester that is complimented by a gentle velvet material that won't hurt the finish of your gear. The shoulder strap is anti-slip in design, comfortable, padded and removable. There's also a top carry handle for added convenience.

Access to your gear is easy. The bag comes with a removable pouch that permits you to pre-pack your gear and just slip it inside the bag. When not needed, just remove the pouch and the bag becomes usable for other purposes with its expanded storage space. The Heralder has a Quick Top Access Zipper that exposes the interior for rapid removal of your camera when you need it. No more missing shots because you have to struggle to unbuckle dual front couplers. Just unzip the top, remove your DSLR or camcorder, get the shot, replace the equipment, re-zip and you're off to your next shot.

Your tripod is held in its own sling and readily accessible for long exposures or long lenses. All of these features make this bag a perfect choice for the photo and video journalist who needs a bag that is easy to pack, carry and use.

    The Heralder 38 Bag (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works For Me This Bag is very well made without being excessively heavy (empty). It has plenty of room for my Nikon D600, D7100 cameras with lenses mounted as well as my Lumix LX100. Four additional leses fit comfortably with room to spare for a table-top tripod and other accessories. I can also (just barely) fit my D600 with my big 300mm f4 mounted! It does not have very many accessory pockets, but in my case I am happy to have batteries, filters and more, in individual pouches that I can pull out and access what I need more easily than digging around in numerous pockets inside the bag. I can also easily fit my Macbook in, and even more stuff if I want to risk a lifting injury.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Bag to Fit Them All! The Good This bag is a little on the bulky side, but that can be a good thing. I have a 70-200mm, 16-28mm, 24-70mm, 90mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, two bodies with grips, circular filters, 15 mac book pro. After all that the bag can still hold more. The inside has a padded pouch for all of the camera gear a sleeve for a computer and dividers that can be arrange in many different configuration. The Bad There are few cons with this bag. the size of the bag can be a little cumbersome and heavy when fully loaded, but nothing major.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag Thie bag holds a lot of gear. I have a Canon EOS 60D with lens and 6 other lenses in this bag. Also a 580EXII flash, 2 battery chargers, spare batteries for the flash, lens filters and much more in it. One con is it is on the heavey side with all this equipment, would not want to carry it a long distance. Bag is very well built and will last for years. Worth the price, I recommend it!!!!!!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definetly one of the better ones I have a Tenba, but I bought this one because I wanted a messenger bag that would hold two cameras at once. And it does. Kind of. Ok, in the first row I fit two Canon 600 flashes. In the second I put in a Canon 5D Mark III, with a battery extender, and a 24-70 2.8, with the lens hood fully extended, it fits fine, with a little room to either side of the camera to put small items like extra batteries. On the third row I can put in a couple of lenses, and on the fourth an another 5D with a battery extender and a 70-200, but without the hood extended. Here is the problem: It is hard (i.e., not fast, not shoot this freaking happening thing right now-fast) getting to either camera from the top zipper, especial the one with the 70-200, because it is resting in the corner. Still, it is bigger than the Temba, in fact, kind of, yeah, big! In fact, I wouldn't recommend it to amateurs, unless you have multiple cameras and/or lenses, and you prefer messenger bags. Otherwise, get a Tenba. It is more comfortable, better looking and cheaper. If on the other hand you are more of a pro, yeah, this is better, if not the best. I would say it is good for those like me, who want to carry to an event one bag with some extra stuff, instead of a rolling case. But don't think it will be easy to put one camera in and get the other out easily. I would suggest, sling one camera over the shoulder, and keep the other one in the middle isle of the bag where you can get to it easier. The material is good, even though I prefer the Tenba's but that is personal preference. The laptop sleeve is well-padded, and I leave it in when not carrying a laptop for extra padding. The strap is very comfortable, the zippers are well made, but the bag as a whole could use more side pockets, even if it would add to the bulk. I added more bulk on my own, by added extra padding below the dividers, in case the cameras come down hard when I put the bag down. Never too much protection! Would I get it again? I have to say, YES! I have not found anything close to what I wanted, and this should do. Not perfect, but then again, I am spoiled :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good bag I just got this bag to carry medium format gear. It's quite roomy and have plenty of padding. The bag is well designed and doesn't attract much attention. There is nothing worse than a flashy camera bag!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heralder 38 Very well made and large (which is why I bought it). Looks good and internal sections can be adjusted to meet my needs. Very comfortable to carry even when fully loaded. Haven't loaded my tripod yet; a great extra.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a bag! =] I bought this bag to transport 2 mirrorless Sony bodies (my Sony Alpha a9 & Sony Alpha a7R III with battery grip), several lenses (28/2, 35/1.4Z, 55/1.8Z, 85/1.8) along with 4 batteries, 2 chargers, a few filters, cleaning supplies, a flash, and other small things. I actually own the Heralder 28 bag and that was perfect for a small setup, but this really allows me to carry everything I need. It can also fit a 15" latptop if you pack it right. I can picture myself using this for a flight to safely harbor my precious gear and computer in one bag. I think fully packed, it should fit right under the seat on a flight. One thing I really love about this bag is the quick-access zipper that lets you access the insides of the bag from the top after you've zipped it shut and buckled it. This is useful if you are trying to pull out fast and shoot a load. It comes with a rain cover, which is awesome and has a nice side pocket on the outside where I would usually pack a snack, water bottle, portable USB charger, or stuff my lens caps on shoots. I would say it's a bit too cumbersome to wear during the duration of a shoot, but it's a great choice if you need to have something protecting your equipment as you change locations and such.
