“Coming from an industrial design background, we know that function is equally important as the look and feel of a design,” says Kema Subsomboon, Lead Product Designer at booq. “Customer feedback is a significant part of the process when we redesign a bag, and was a major element in the updates to the Slimpack. In addition to the new exterior fabric, one of the major updates is that the entry point on the back of the Slimpack unzips with the straps intact, making it quick and convenient for photographers to grab the equipment they need.”
The spacious interior features a cushioned, non-scratch lining and densely padded dividers that can be configured to fit users’ gear of choice, while a variety of pockets with concealed interior slots keep accessories safe and well organized. The Slimpack boasts two entry points, making quick shots easy to capture, and a separate compartment for a 12” laptop or 10” tablet.
Made from 47% recycled PET and 53% cotton, the bag's exterior weatherproof fabric is rugged yet smooth, while ergonomically designed shoulder straps and open mesh enable ventilation, keeping carriers cool and comfortable. The Slimpack also features an exterior pouch and buckle to tote a tripod, and includes a removable rain poncho with reflective graphics for heavier downpours. The backpack’s flat bottom allows it to stand on its own, making spur of the moment shots simple to capture.
Each Slimpack features a five-year warranty and unique Terralinq serial number, a service provided by booq designed to help owners recover lost bags. The Slimpack is available now for $195 at www.booqbags.com and various retailers throughout the U.S. See more of booq’s line of products here.
