Miggo has returned to crowdfunding to launch a new collection of three "storm-proof" camera and drone bags, the Agua IPX3 bags, which are now available to back on Indiegogo. The trio consists of an Agua Versa backpack, Agua Drone Lander and Agua Sling.
The Versa backpack is a versatile backpack designed for not only daily use, but for carrying professional gear. You can store gear inside an included removable internal "doc-bag" or in the main compartment of the bag itself. The backpack offers fast side access to your gear and includes three dedicated waterproof exterior pockets for your personal belongings in addition to designed laptop and tablet pockets. The backpack is made using a durable tarpaulin material and offers a rigid bottom with impact protection. The Versa is designed for a full-frame camera in addition to a pair of pro lenses and a flash.
I have a pre-release sample of the Versa on hand for testing and I was able to fit a gripped DSLR with a 200-500mm zoom lens with room to spare. Granted, this was after removing the interior bag, but the backpack itself offers great protection. I tested its "storm-proof" claim and it stood up very well to extensive exposure to water, not letting a single drop inside any of its pockets or the main compartment. The bag is also very comfortable to wear. I'll have a full review of the backpack soon.
The Agua Drone Lander bag is designed for DJI Mavic or Spark-sized drones and offers the same weather protection as the other two bags in the series. It has a padded three-layer insert and space for the drone plus accessories. It also includes an integral landing mat, which can double as a work station. The Drone Lander is carried like a sling and has a padded main strap and a diagonal strap for keeping the bag snugly against your body on long treks.
Rounding out the lineup is the Agua Sling, which is a compact design. Despite its small size, it can hold a camera as large as a Canon 5D Mark IV with three professional lenses and a flash. It has a wide padded strap and offers side access.
