New Gear: Booq’s Python Catch Bag

A roomy bag with a low-key design

Having a bag that doesn’t look like it is packed to the gills with a bunch of expensive camera gear is something that is increasingly important for photographers. Finding a bag with a low-key design that is still roomy enough to hold all that gear is a different challenge. A new bag from booq looks like it may have reached this middle ground though.

The Python catch is a weatherproof messenger bag that can hold up to two DSLRs, four lenses, and a 15" laptop. Inside there are a number of individual compartments for organizing memory cards, filters, hard drives, and personal items. It's also eco-friendly since the fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles and comes with a reflective rain cover for when the weather gets harsh.

The bag is available now for $295.
