If you haven’t already noticed, booq has been on a roll with releasing new bags for consumers. Their latest, the Python slimpack, is perfectly designed for the professional photographer or up-and-coming shutterbug.
The booq Python slimpack may be small(er) in weight and size, but it’s big when it comes to design and function. This backpack can hold up to two DSLR cameras, four lenses, a tablet (or an ultrabook?), a tripod, and all of your daily pocket-items.
Two side-panels zip open, each providing pockets and a zippered mesh storage area for all your small gadgets, cables, batteries, papers, keys, smartphone, and more.
The main compartment zips open from the back, which provides an extra bit of security so no one can attempt to sneak open and pilfer your expensive equipment. I don’t know if I would consider it as “quick-access” though.
The densely padded divider walls are fully adjustable and, if you’re not familiar with booq quality, provide excellent protection.
Like many other booq bags, the Python slimpack stands up on its own (as long as the weight is not unevenly distributed). You can set down the backpack and unzip the top pocket to quickly grab your DSLR camera without having to worry about your bag tipping over. The bottom of the Python slimpack is rubberized to keep water out.
Although the Python slimpack is made of water-resistant ballistic nylon, it also comes with a rain cover for those times when you least expect a drizzle to transform into a storm.
