Benro unveils luggage solutions for the photo market
Kenro, the official UK and Ireland distributor for the acclaimed Benro range of tripods, has introduced a selection of practical luggage solutions, designed to make a photographer’s life a little easier.
There are two choices of bags, the Hummer Backpack and the Pioneer Trolley Case.
Specially designed to meet the needs of the outdoor photographer, the Benro Hummer series of backpacks teams beautiful design with supreme weight-distribution. The ergonomic harness system is designed for maximum ventilation to achieve the highest level of comfort and reduce uneven, heavy loading, eliminating the risk of back-ache and potential damage to camera gear.
Its sophisticated design means that photographers are able to store maximum components into one, compact backpack. The front compartment provides storage for chargers, cleaning equipment, mobile phones and other accessories, and the left strap provides a safe place to store items such as a water bottle and other accessories.
Photographers can be assured that their equipment is in safe hands when using the Benro Hummer Backpack. Retractable dividers found within the backback’s compartments offers a wide choice for different sized equipment, eliminating the risk of potential damage.
Retro-reflecting materials have been used on the straps to provide safety at night, whilst its lockable YKK zippers give an added anti-theft function.
Available in two sizes, the Benro Hummer Backpack is made to fit either one SLR, one lens and a 13.3-inch laptop or one SLR, three lenses, one flash and a 14.1-inch laptop. The right-pocket feature allows for quick and easy access to camera gear without the need to enter the main compartment, meaning less time spent locating equipment within the bag.
The Benro Professional Pioneer trolley case has been specially designed with commercial photographers in mind, whose schedule relies heavily on travelling with a full kit.
Made of high quality DuPont 1680D and full-grain leather materials, the Professional Pioneer trolley case provides substantial protection for camera kit. Security is further enforced by its anti-theft YKK zippers, UTX buckles and the water repellent & abrasion-resistant layer added to the bottom of the trolley, assuring that it can take the harshness of any enviroment.
Much like the Benro Hummer Backpack, the Pioneer trolley case also uses an ergonomic harness system designed for maximum ventilation to reduce uneven loading and highest level of comfort when travelling with heavy equipment. Equipment is kept securely in place and the trolleys’ heavy-duty compartments whilst the attached safety password lock added to the zip provides extra reassurance to the photographer.
For maximum versatility, the Pioneer trolley case can also turn into a backpack when needed by simply utilising the hidden shoulder straps found on the back compartment of the trolley. A brief case can also be attached securely to the trolley using fastenings provided.
Available in two sizes, the Benro Professional Pioneer trolley case is made to fit either two SLR’s, six lenses, two flashes, and a 14-inch laptop or two/three SLR’s, six/eight lenses, two flashes and a 17-inch laptop. Paul Kench, managing director of Kenro, made this comment: “Benro are renowned for the quality of their world-class tripods and I’m delighted to see that same attention to design, build quality and functionality has been applied to their new range of luggage. Photographers spend huge sums on their equipment and they need to preserve their investment, what better way to look after your kit than in a Benro case?”
