“kyu daypack” is a camera bag designed for carrying a camera on a daily basis.
The simple exterior and innovative camera storage make it easier to take your camera with you.
I don't have the camera bag I want...
I don't have a fashionable camera bag that I can use everyday…
The development of this camera bag initiated with this simple subject.
Conventional camera bags are difficult to use on a daily basis because of the hard surface material used to protect the camera and the partitions for storing the camera.
Protecting your precious camera is necessary.
However, for those who want to use their camera casually, we believe that protection is also an obstacle to daily life.
We have developed a camera bag that fits in everyday life, and makes it easier to take the camera to carry out.
Conventional camera bags are multifunctional but complex for everyday use.
We felt that the modern camera users need a minimalistic design.
Thanks to the simple design, you can use the bag at any scenes in your life.
“kyu daypack” is made of a soft nylon fabric (water repellent) that fits well in everyday use and does not look like conventional camera bags.
Side access for quick shooting. Take out the camera on the fly.
The zipper is made of YKK VISLON® zipper for smooth opening and closing. It is possible to take out a camera, water bottle, or other items while holding the bag.
And, for a better side access experience, the shoulder strap length can be adjusted in one action.
One of the main features of "kyu daypack" is the camera compartment.Conventional thick dividers are good for protecting the camera, but inconvenient for daily use.
Therefore, an elastic cushioning material is used for the camera compartment.This provides both minimal camera protection and everyday usability.
The camera sleeve is made of three layers of approximately 0.88mm elastic material for extra thickness.(Total: 2.64mm)
The lining of the surface fabric is equipped with a cushioning material that softens the impact from the outside. It has a structure that protects the camera both inside and outside..
When the camera is not in use, "kyu daypack" can be used as a regular backpack as it sits flat on the backside.
It also has a kangaroo pocket-like structure that keeps the camera off the ground and prevents it from being impacted, thus protecting your precious camera from shocks when you put the backpack down.
Camera sizes suitable for storage are shown in the figure above.
The storage space is divided into four main areas.
- main space
- outside pocket
- PC Sleeve
- Inside pocket
I didn't divide the storage space into small pieces, and dared to drop it into a simple shape.
The maximum capacity of the main space is 18 liters, suitable for carrying large items such as plastic bottles or pouches.
It can be used for commuting to work, school, or a short trip.
The top pocket has a large capacity and space for easy access.
As shown in the image above, a wallet, notepad, smartphone, earphones, etc. can fit securely.
In addition, a laptop computer, a necessity for creators, can be stored up to 15 inches.
The internal pocket can be easily accessed from the side and is convenient for keys, lens caps, or other small items that you need to get to quickly.
