Heads up to photographers looking for reliable carrying options for their DSLRs! Award-winning fashion accessory brand Hex has just released the new Glacier Series, a collection of four innovative camera bags designed to be stylish and protective shooting companions for DSLR photographers. Whatever your shooting style and wherever you’re headed for your next projects, this new camera bag series is worth your consideration.
Hex is no stranger to making camera bags especially for DSLR photographers, as we’ve seen in their previously released Ranger Collection and Spring Grid Collection. The new Hex Glacier Collection is comprised of the Camo Back Loader DSLR Backpack, Glacier Camo Cinema Backpack, Ranger Clamshell Glacier Camo DSLR Backpack, and Ranger Glacier Camo DSLR Sling. Each comes packed with features catering to various shooting styles and gear inclusions. All bags are made using premium, water-resistant Cordura® or 900D poly materials to keep all your gear protected. They also have padded and fleece-lined multi-use compartments with removable partitions so you can pack your gear the way you want it.
The Glacier Camo Back Loader DSLR Backpack ($198.95) also has three mesh and velcro pockets on the facing side for extra accessories, while the top zipper allows quick and easy access to your camera without having to open the main compartment. The padded and faux-fur lined laptop slot can fit laptops of up to 15″, while Hex’s signature front pocket for iPad/tablet makes sure your phone or tablet is easily accessible. Other features include quick-access tripod straps on the side, a chest compression strap, belting straps, and an ID card pocket.
The Glacier Camo Cinema Backpack ($239.95), as the name suggests, is designed for cinematic gear, specifically a Canon 1DX with the lens attached. With this bag, Hex addresses the fact that most camera bags aren’t deep enough to fit this setup even if it’s the go-to camera for filmmakers. It also has three mesh and velcro pockets on the side for extra accessories, and a top and side opening that allows quick access to your camera. A padded and faux fur lined separate storage compartment with an organizer can accommodate up to a 17″ MacBook Pro, while Hex’s signature front pocket for iPad/tablet provides easy access to your phone or tablet. If you still need space, this roomy backpack also has five more storage side compartments for stuff like cables, lens caps, and other accessories.
For those who prioritize easy camera access and full comfort during full-day shoots, the Ranger Clamshell Glacier Camo DSLR Backpack ($199.95) could be the best choice. It features a patent-pending clamshell design with integrated compression buckles, which let you choose between top-open, left-side open, or right-side open for the quickest camera access. The compression straps both separate the three “zones” and protect against over-opening in any of the other zones. The one-piece strap was specially made with an ergonomic design, padding, and air mesh to provide the best comfort and breathability.
Last but not the least is the all-new Ranger Glacier Camo DSLR Sling ($99.95), which is a perfect bag for minimalist shoots. It features a bottom panel that can be folded out or completely removed so you can pack it flat for travel. The panel assembles back into a structured and protective camera bag by simply folding out the bottom. This unique, compact, and versatile sling can hold either a DSLR with a lens or a mirrorless camera, and is also designed to streamline the storage of your DSLR essentials. It even has a back entry zippered, padded, and faux fur lined tablet sleeve that can fit an iPad Mini or tablets of similar size. There’s also a faux fur lined zippered pocket for holding your phone, sunglasses, or other small accessories.
