If you do a lot of photography in wet locations, you’ll definitely find the Inrigo a useful camera backpack for protecting your gear.
If the Inrigo camera backpack looks unlike any camera bag you’ve seen before, that’s because it’s not your ordinary camera bag. First, it’s a waterproof bag, much like the dry bag you use when you when you go to the beach or anywhere your valuables can potentially get wet. Second, it’s a smart bag that monitors the humidity inside and alerts the user when there’s too much moisture in the bag.
With up to 35 L of space, the Inrigo backpack made by MicroNovelty can fit two camera bodies and five lenses, plus has extra space for your other outdoor stuff. It also has a sternum strap and lumbar support strap so you can comfortably lug all your gear around. The bag is made with double-sided TPU waterproof material and has an airtight zipper chain, making it one of the few bags out there that can keep your photography gear protected against water in any environment.
There’s also a compartment in the bag that fits a small box of desiccant to ensure that moisture inside is controlled.
But, that’s not all the Inrigo has to offer. It’s most surprising feature is the Bluetooth humidity monitor that will alert you through your mobile phones once the humidity goes over the set threshold. It will also let you know when you’ve strayed too far from your bag.
The Inrigo comes in two packages: the Inrigo LitePak, which doesn’t come with the inner carrying bags (and can be used to proect existing camera bags that can fit inside it), and the Inrigo ProPak which comes with two inner cases.
According to Oliver Sun, CEO of MicroNovelty, he once lost a precious lens to water damage while shooting outdoors, which prompted him to design Inrigo. Surely, there are lots of photographers who have lost and can still potentially lose their cameras and lenses not only to water damage but also to fungus. So we can see how useful this novel backpack can be, especially to those who are frequently on the go to photograph the great outdoors.
