There are plenty of great camera bags on the market, but you can often miss that perfect shot by wasting time getting out and setting up your camera. The Cloak Bag solves this by providing a discreet cover for your camera whilst allowing you to take photos - without having to remove your camera from the bag.
The clever design of the Cloak Bag ensures that you have access to your camera’s functions at all times and allows you to move freely about in crowded places without attracting unwanted attention to your shiny new DSLR.
The top flap can be opened to give you access to the camera’s various functions and a side zipper gives you access to the lens if you want to adjust it manually. The camera is held through side slits so you won’t waste time having to fumble around searching for the shutter button. When you spot a photo opportunity, you simply unzip the bottom of the bag, roll the sides up and start shooting.
To set up the Cloak Bag you replace your camera straps with the Cloak Bag straps. This ensures it sits properly within the bag. The camera is then slotted into the bag with its base on the screw track inside the bag. Once the camera straps are attached, you then attach the bag’s screw into the camera’s tripod mount. The bag’s length can be adjusted by folding the bag in on itself - it needs to be short enough to ensure your lens is not obstructed.
Looking more like a messenger bag than a camera bag, the Cloak Bag comes in gray and turquoise or coffee and green, and measures approximately 15cm (5.9”) wide (varies with camera height), approximately 12cm (4.7”) high (varies with camera width) and is 23.5cm (9.3”) long.
The Cloak Bag will fit the majority of DSLR and SLR cameras and is available from Cloak for US$49.
