FLEXIBLE, ACCESSIBLE SPACE

To ensure you can put in lots of gear, Crumpler first put in lots of thought. That’s why the main compartment features configurable brushed padded nylon dividers with fold down flaps and why the dual zone front pocket features gusseted sides.

Complete with tri-glide buckle system, it will go to almost any lengths to help you get that great shot.

PADDED CARRY HANDLE

Cushioned with neoprene for maximum comfort, the ergonomically styled carry handle is shaped to match the natural contours of your hand and fingers.

Incase Toploading DSLR Case Review

May 22nd, 2014 in Product ReviewsNo Comments

San Francisco based tech-lifestyle bag designers Incase make bags that run the excruciatingly fine line of form/function like nobody else in their category does.

We love the thoughtfulness that goes into their product features and functionality, which paired with a minimal design aesthetic, complements both the electronic devices we use on a day to day basis, as well as our own lifestyles perfectly.

Rushfaster customer and professional photographer Ben Allan has sent in this great review of his Incase Toploading DSLR Case, a favourite go-to camera case for photographers of all levels that like extra mobility.

Thanks for sharing your great review & photos Ben! – The Rushfaster Team

Imagine – you’re a photographer out on assignment in a new city. You have your gear neatly squeezed into your Incase DSLR Pro Pack, as well as your lighting roller bag and you’re ready to work. But when you’re finished with work, and its time to play, you don’t want to be carrying around 2 bodies, 5 lenses and lighting gear to explore the city and take a few shots along the way – enter the Incase Toploading DSLR Case (pictured).

The Toploading DSLR Case is a minimalist Incase camera bag. It’s a simple, single body, single lens carry case that is comfortable to wear, functional and will protect your gear. Like all Incase products, the build quality of this bag is exceptional. The black ‘heathered’ exterior is both durable and classically stylish, and doesn’t show every scuff the bag is likely to get as it is worn on your adventures. The fleece lining on the interior will protect your camera, and it is adequately padded to ensure your gear stays protected.

Something that may seem trivial, but is always important to me, is the length of the shoulder strap, and the Incase DSLR Case has plenty of room to move. I’m no stick creature, and this case was comfortable to wear all day, providing enough length to allow the case to sit close to my hip where it was most comfortable. Functionally, this case is well designed and provides everything you need quickly and easily. The main compartment comes with a divider that can be arranged to accommodate a variety of needs, and will comfortably fit most kit zoom lenses, as well as a speed light or lens hood. Although if you have a professional grade zoom lens this may not be the case for you, as the length of the case won’t allow for a set up any longer than around 8 inches (20cm), so your 70-200mm f2.8 will have to stay at home, as will your battery grip; My D800 with 24 – 120mm f4 fits snuggly, although you wouldn’t want a lens that was any bigger.

The top pocket provides enough room for some essentials; spare batteries, filters, lens cloth and other small objects. A nice little addition is the small front pocket, which I found useful for small documents such as maps and guides while you’re out and about.

So is this your only DSLR case? I’d suggest not – unless you have only one lens and very few accessories. Instead, this case is the perfect companion to a bigger carrying solution. See it perhaps as the little brother to your Incase DSLR Pro Pack (pictured with for comparison), which you take out and about on short trips. It loves outings to the Zoo, a stroll around town, going to the park with your kids and your second cousins niece’s third birthday party.

This is the lightweight, well built and easy to use “just need the camera” case you have been searching for.

The Incase Toploading DSLR Case is available in Black Heather at Rushfaster now.
