California-based Gruv Gear, designer and manufacturer of innovative utility transport systems and bags, announces two new accessories for its largest multi-use backpack, the Stadium Bag. The Camera Divider is a drop-in partition case that easily converts the Stadium Bag into a full-fledged DSLR bag by simply replacing the two built-in shelves. It also gives the user a new option to carry up to a 17″ laptop on the inside of the bag, or transfer the computer to free up the front area for an iPad, something that many have requested in the full-featured backpack.
The accessory ships flat, is assembled via familiar Velcro fasteners, and comes with multiple high- visibility padded foam dividers to allow users to customize the space. The top area is designed to accommodate a DSLR body with the lens attached, so it can be pulled out quickly ready to shoot at any time. The bottom sections are further partitioned by a second shelf and padded dividers, which would be accessed through the Stadium Bag’s side “locker doors.”
The Camera Divider drops in and secures nicely to the bag interior, and pulls out just as easily when not in use. It’s designed to carry several combinations of DSLR camera bodies, lenses, and battery chargers, while the Stadium Bag’s built-in weather cover helps protect valuable gear from the elements.
The new Tripod Pouch add-on accessory is also made for its Stadium Bag, but can universally fit other DSLR bags and cases. The accessory attaches to the built-in webbing loops on either side of the backpack to carry camera tripods, compact guitar stands, desktop microphone stands, or smaller telescoping light stands. The bottom of the Tripod Pouch has a large grommet ring to allow sand or dirt to fall through and not accumulate inside the pouch area.
Photographers will enjoy the convenience of carrying up to two tripods or stands on their Stadium Bag, while musicians and mobile producers can enjoy having their instrument and mic stands conveniently in- tow while freeing both hands. The Tripod Pouch is easily removable and can be stored in one of the side cargo pockets without taking much space. It is constructed using the same sturdy polyester/nylon material used on the Stadium Bag, and comes in all-black for a universal look when mounted on other DSLR bags.
The Tripod Pouch accommodates tripods and stands from 13″ (33 cm) to 25″ (63.5 cm) tall, while the pouch depth is 4.5″ (11.4 cm) and is easily tightened to secure the gear. The accessory weighs only 3 oz (0.08 kgs) but carries up to 10 lbs (4.5 kgs).
