I'm not really impressed. Looks a bit raggedy. I'd rather purchase a standard hiking backpack and a small bag of balloons which I can blow up as needed. Just as effective, but cheaper.

Agree with @rook2c4- I saw it yesterday online and it looks like a bad beach toy

By the time I had inflated it by blowing into the little valves, I'd be too tired to hike with it!

It's got to be tough designing a new camera bag because there are already so many different designs available. For me, durability and ease of use are the most important qualities of a camera bag.

While I like the idea of inflating cells to provide protection, I like to use my yellow (now offered in black) soft-sided 13x9x9" cooler with a shoulder strap. It provides some protection from shock while it holds my Canon body w/28-300mm zoom as well as a smaller lens. It also has side compartments to accommodate a flash, spare batts, etc. to support a days shooting. It also does not loudly announce Canon/Nikon/$$$ so please steal me. Since it is a cooler, I can leave it in my car for short periods with a small blue ice in the separate zippered compartment in the lid. I have used this same bag (cooler) 2-3 times weekly, including cruises (it rides piggyback on a suitcase), for over ten years. It is well made. https://corvettestore.com/c7-corvette-emblem-cooler-coolerc71 I hope that I didn't hi-jack your thread, that wasn't my intent.
Happy Shooting,

This looks interesting to me. I can't tell the quality but it's probably not worse than most of the other small bags available. Worth checking out, anyway.

Interesting to me because I just this morning received a new back pack that I ordered off Amazon a few days ago. It's a medium size LowePro that's just perfect for stowing my macro focus stacking equipment.

I guess I should have disclosed that the "Cooler Photo Bag" is much less than perfect, yet it disguises what you are carrying, protects your camera from heat/cold/shock and is large enough for a small kit at a reasonable price point. Granted it is definitely not large enough for every lens/body that you own. Like JerryC41 says "It's got to be tough designing a new camera bag because there are already so many different designs available." For me, this is a doable and less expensive alternative. Disguising your valuable equipment when in a foreign country is important for me.
Anyway, it works for me,
