Ruggard Triumph 55
My friends at B&H set me up with this cool camera bag backpack. Let me tell you my impressions…
At first, I couldn’t quite figure out how to get things in and out in an efficient manner. It has a top pouch and large side pouch. As I poked around the thing I discovered the back has a zipper. I opened it, and whoa! There was plenty of room.
The next step was to see what I could cram in this thing. If I could get enough in it, my plan was to take it with me to Houston.
Here’s a picture of what I managed to get inside:
Let me inventory this for you…
- Fujifilm X-E1
- 2 SD card wallets
- Light meter
- 2 LED lights
- LensPens (2)
- 2 58mm filters in their cases
- 3 Fujifilm batteries
- Closeup lens set
- 85mm Lens
- 15-55mm Lens
- LensBaby Composer
- LensBaby Sweet 35
- T2i batteries (5)
- Canon T2i with a Sigma 8-16mm Lens
- Tascam digital record
- and business cards and odds and ends
After getting it packed, came the next part. This is a slinger that looks like a backpack with one strap. It is made so you can wear it on the front for quick access, or on the back for carrying. It took mentally challenged photographer a little while to figure it out, but once I did, it quickly became second nature.
It cost about $80, and it is very well built.
