FIELD RECORDING BAG

I’ve been looking for a variety of field recording bags, and in the past, I used to curry microphones in arc’teryx miura 45 and pieces of equipment in another bag, but now I can store much in this Peak Design Travel Duffelpack bag.
As you have already seen how Tim Prebble uses this bag, this bag opens from your back so no need to worry about getting dirt on your back anymore!

I tested compatible as a field recording bag, and the result was It could hold gears more than I thought.

But how about its maximum load capacity? I’ve asked them before purchasing, and their quick kind answer was they tested at well over 200+ without signs of failure!
YES! & NICE! They have such great customer support!

It is the best bag for me so far which I’d like to recommend to all colleagues and field recordists out there.
