Moment Rethink the Camera Sling for Both Photographers and Active Video Shooters

Moment, a company that’s well-known for its smartphone and drone accessories, is quickly becoming a general brand that outfits photographers and filmmakers with everything from straps to filters to bags. Today the company announced a new interesting product in their line.

“We’re introducing the Rugged Camera Sling we’ve always wanted,” Moment says. “For sling lovers, this has all the details they will appreciate. For non-sling lovers, this bag adds comfort that other slings leave out.”

The new bag, which is available in both 6L and 10L sizes has been designed in such a way that the company claims that even ‘sling doubters’ will like.
The design was born out of the desire to have a bag that can be used to retrieve gear from quickly, yet be comfortable enough to use all day. It is made from 100% recycled polyester sailcloth, with water-resistant YKK zippers, heavy-duty webbing, and shockproof paddling.

The storage is fully configurable, and the shoulder strap can be configured for use by both left and right-handed shooters.

“One of the unique features about this bag are the materials,” Moment says. “It’s called NorthPak and it’s the world’s first durable + waterproof pack fabric made from 100% recycled polyester fiber and film. It’s made by North Sails, the world’s leading sailmaker and producer of laminated sailcloth. So yeah, it’s pretty rugged. As far as we know, this is the first time it’s ever been used on a camera bag.”

Key Features

  • Padded wingback design hugs your body for comfortable carry.
  • Quick access, dual-zippered main flap for grabbing gear on the run.
  • Soft padded inner lining protects your tech gear.
  • Modular dividers with quilted velcro lining for easy organization.
  • Zippered and quick-slip inner pockets for batteries, cards, cables, and more.
  • Integrated pocket for iPad or tablets (up to 11-inch tablets).
  • Anti-slip tripod loading straps with fully magnetic hardware for quick release and latch.
  • Integrated key clip.

The beauty of slings is that you often don’t have to take them off in order to retrieve gear quickly. But whilst traditional slings cannot carry a huge amount, the Moment Rugged Sling can cater to both photographers and video shooters.

The 6L bag, for instance, will allow minimalist gear for drones, stills photographers, or video people. Great for, say, street photographers, or discreet filming. The 10L bag, on the other hand, can carry a small DSLR or mirrorless camera and a couple of lenses, filters, and even a small foldable tripod.

For users of the DJI Mavic Mini, the bag will comfortably fit all the accessories you need for flying, including an iPad Pro.
