Akona Pro
Camera Bag
It’s the traveling photographer’s
dilemma: Digital housings and strobes
are so large they almost have to be checked,
but nothing better protects from pilferage or
misconnected luggage than carrying it on the
plane. The Akona Pro camera bag offers a
solution. It measures 22x15x10 inches—carry-on
size with most airlines—and with sturdy wheels
and an ergonomic telescoping handle, it breezes
down the concourse. An easily removable laptop
sleeve attaches to the outside for quick access at
security or on the plane.
Inside, the commodious and ingeniously
compartmentalized space holds a Seacam D200
with the camera body inside the housing, a pair
of Ikelite DS125 strobes and macro and dome
ports, with room left for lenses, a topside
speedlight, charger, cords, memory cards and
miscellaneous bits and pieces.
The front sports a zipper pocket suitable for
a paperback, tickets, passport or even strobe
arms if necessary. And there are shoulder straps
tucked away inside for terrain too rough for
wheels. For those times when checking is the
only option, detach the computer compartment
and trust that the gear will remain secure in its
padded cocoon. MSRP: $230. Contact: akona.com.
