Moment announces the Rugged Camera Sling

News

Sling camera bags can get a mixed response, partially due to the non-standard hybrid design, part backpack, part shoulder bag.

A good sling should be a smooth combination of both, and looking at Moment’s latest release it certainly looks like they have the balance.

The designers have worked hard to create a sling bag that combines convenience with comfort, something so often lacking from your average sling.

“We wanted a bag we could trust to carry our gear that was comfortable to wear all day…even on our most active shoots. “

The Moment Rugged Sling is made from 100% recycled polyester sailcloth, this material means that the exterior is naturally water-resistant, albeit a manmade material, and the use of YKK zippers will help to stop any water ingress. 

Making sure that the bag will last for years heavy-duty webbing has been chosen and to ensure that your kit stays safe there’s plenty of shockproof padding.

Inside you’ll find everything is lined with the inclusion of soft pockets and configurable storage. 

Importantly the shoulder strap is bi-directional so you have the choice depending on whether you’re right or left-hander.

The Moment Rugged Camera Sling looks set to be a winner and we’ll take a look at a sample soon, for now here are the specifications.

Moment Rugged Camera Sling materials

Moment is keen to point out the unique nature of the materials they have chosen for the rugged camera sling. The material is known as NorthPak a durable and waterproof fabric made from 100% recycled polyester fibre and film.

Manufactured by North Sails, the world’s leading sailmaker and producer of laminated sailcloth. As far as moment know, this is the first time it’s been used to make a camera bag.

  • CO2 emissions from manufacturing recycled PET fibre are comparable to the production of organic cotton
  • CO2 emissions from manufacturing recycled PET fibre are 50% lower than the production of virgin nylon
  • CO2 emissions from manufacturing recycled PET film are 38% lower than the production of virgin PET film
  • Every yard of NORTHPAK fabric saves approximately one pound of CO2 versus virgin-source Nylon/polyester fabric
  • NORTHPAK contains no harmful PU, TPU, PVC, DWR or other coatings, inside or out
