Bowens Crumpler BagPress Release:

Bowens has teamed with leading bag maker, Crumpler, to create a ‘bespoke and tough’ new lighting kitbag for photographers. Bowens marketing director Robert  Cook said, “This new and exclusive Bowens kitbag has been officially ‘crumplified’. The ‘Bowens Gimlet Bag by Crumpler is a joint project between the two companies, following a brief  by us to develop a rugged yet stylish carry bag for our discerning customers.

He added: “From our talks with photographers we identified ‘excellent stability’ as a   ‘must-have’ requirement. We know that many bags have a tendency to roll from side to side – and that’s not much fun for a photographer trying to safely negotiate expensive equipment across the country – or across many countries. This custom-designed product has good sized, high quality wheels and will easily accommodate a full two-head kit equipment list with enough space to spare for a Travelpak battery too. It’s very well padded and protected with the latest ‘hyper performance’, weatherproof Kordura material.  It also has comfortable neoprene handles and lots of extra storage pockets. This is the bag to have when you need to transport equipment safely.

The new Gimlet bag is available now from Bowens distributors and retails at £259.99. For more information please visit the Bowens website.

I brought this bag about a Year ago, one of the best and worst feature of the bag is wheels. The trouble with the wheels is that you cant lock them. This is not a problem when you store the bag flat, just and try and prop the bag up at the side of a wall to save space. The Bag just rolls away. Apart from that, its has quality feel about it and is extremely well made. One more negative point, (sorry Bowens) Bowens would have you believe that the bag would carry 2 lights + a Battery kit. Not with kit I brought off them! (PRO 500 & a 750 PRO Gemini) Another great feature are the large plastic spherical feet that cover the bottom of the bag. You can set the bag down in in a large puddle of water up to 2 inchs deep. I was at a job the other day when I returned to the car later, it was raining heavily. I just realised why the bottom of the bag had plastic feet, as I struggled to get all my gear into the car in the pouring rain!
