The black Quovio 26 Shoulder Bag from Vanguard opens up some interesting opportunities to store, carry and use your photo gear. This bag is rated to hold your DSLR with lens attached as well as an extra lens up to 70-200mm f/2.8. In addition, there's an interior slip-in pocket for an iPad or similar sized tablet. Extra storage is provided by a front zippered organizer panel for memory cards and batteries plus a zippered mesh accessory pocket located on the inside of front lid. The bag will also accept optional pouches that can be hung from the side.
The most intriguing facet of this bag is its Quick Strap Adjustment mechanism. The Quovio's shoulder strap slides through a strong D-Ring and with an easy glide, can be adjusted to suit whatever length you prefer. This, coupled with the bag's capability to be used as a backpack with Vanguard's optional ICS Harness System or belt pack with their optional ICS Belt, gives the bag multiple carrying options. A top carry handle is also included for quick grab moments.
The bag is made from a combination of polyester and nylon and features a velvet lining to minimize scratches to your gear. For even more protection, a handy rain cover is included to protect the entire bag when the weather is marginal. Inside, a movable divider gives you the freedom to arrange your gear to suit your preference. There is also an extra divider pad that fits over the LCD screen of your camera when your DSLR is stored face down.
Zippered access to the interior assures you rapid access to your equipment. The front of the bag opens at a sloped angle to give you a total view and easier retrieval angle of the contents. With the included pull tabs, unzipping the Quovio with gloves becomes much easier. Vanguard has even thought to include a name card holder so there's never any mistaking who the bag belongs to. The Quovio comes with a limited lifetime warranty from Vanguard.
