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
