Announced: Three Miggo Water-Proof Bags for Cameras and Drones


Miggo has announced three new bags to add to its collection of water-resistant camera bags, including one designed specifically for drones. In addition to the Splat Flexible Tripods and clever Strap & Wraps, miggo is making a name for itself, thanks to its line of Stormproof camera bags, and these new additions will only enhance that efficacious reputation.

The largest and most versatile of the three new bags is the Agua Versa Backpack 90, which enables three carrying configurations and can hold a DSLR along with two or three lenses, including 70-200mm f/2.8 lens and a laptop up to 14.5". Aimed at photographers who won’t balk at inclement weather, but also very practical as a standard backpack, the Versa 90 can be worn conventionally, with the straps crisscrossed over the chest, or as a sling with one cross-body strap. Each of these styles can be configured easily and there is, of course, a built-in top handle and waist belt. The main access to the pack is on the side, which is ideal when configured as a sling. Inside is the removable equipment pouch with top-carry handles that can be used separately from the backpack. It also provides an organizational pocket on the side and an easily accessible pocket on the front for phones, notebooks, eyeglasses or other thin and important items.

Two interesting features of this bag are its integrated and covered USB panel for charging items with a separately available power bank, and its padded rear panel that provides a pass-through to mount on a rolling suitcase. Anyone who has tried to hook a backpack to a rolling case will appreciate this design touch.

Each of these new miggo bags utilizes tarpaulin, neoprene, Lycra, and polyester construction that gives them an IPX3 water-resistance rating for enhanced protection from inclement weather. IPX3 does not make them submergible but resists “falling water as a spray,” so be confident that your gear will stay dry in a downpour.

The miggo Agua Sling Bag 60 is slightly smaller than the Versa but provides many of the same features. The most obvious distinction is that the Agua Sling provides only one cross-body strap so would normally be worn like a messenger-style bag, providing quick access to its main side-entry storage. Thanks to a stabilizing strap and waist belt, this bag can also be worn on the back and will easily slide into position to remove gear. Additional pockets are available to organize smaller items and the main compartment fits a medium-sized DSLR along with three to four lenses, including a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens and a 13.5" laptop. Like the Versa, its rugged impact-resistant bottom protects your gear and its heavily padded back panel doubles for mounting on a rolling case with a dual-column telescoping handle. The Sling Bag 60 also has the integrated USB port but also provides side compression straps to fasten larger items such as a tripod, monopod, or trekking pole.

Finally, while the miggo Agua-70 Storm-Proof Sling Bag with Integrated Landing Mat for Small Drones offers the same IPX3 weather protection as the other Stormproof bags and a diagonal “sling” strap, it is specifically designed to carry Mavic and Spark-sized drones and their accessories. A pull-out insert with its own carry handle fits snugly into the water-resistant shell and a padded internal divider system fits these drones perfectly, along with distinct space for four propellers, batteries, a padded remote control cover, and a back zippered pocket for a mini-iPad. An integrated wraparound sheet of tarpaulin protects the innards and when unwrapped, provides a work station and a printed landing zone when your drone returns to you safely.

With well-padded straps and back panels, easy-to-access compartments, adjustable strap configurations and rain-proof shells, miggo bags are designed with outdoor and travel photographers in mind. How necessary for your photography is a completely waterproof bag?
