Thule’s new four piece Legend Collection offers a range of packs and cases to safely transport GoPros and other action cams, whether on the bike or with your other gear. The crushproof backpack, sling shoulder pack, and two cases provide lightweight support and storage to get all the camera gear to and from the trail, and to slide inside of other bags and backpacks. For anyone looking for a more secure way to carry all of the accessories that come along with GoPros and the like the Legend Collection takes a cue from traditional professional camera bags to sort gear and get it around safely. Hop past the break for a closer look and availability…
We had a look at the Backpack at Interbike, but now have a bit more information on a broader line up. The Legend GoPro Backpack gets lots of features for both hauling camera gear and shooting, with integrated camera mounts to capture adventures from multiple angles. It carries up to three GoPro cameras inside, with chargers, assorted housings, mounts, straps, grips and whatnot, as well having room for the rest of your non-camera gear like food, clothes, and even a hydration reservoir.
It appears to be the only GoPro-specific backpack on the market to combine both two external camera mounts, plus structured interior storage. The Backpack includes an integrated chest strap mount, plus a rear mount on the structured panel for a full 360° view. Other features include:
- die-cut foam inserts to hold/sort the camera kit that cane be easily removed to clean
- assorted interior pockets for chargers and cables
- a separate compartment for mounts and straps
- easy-access side pockets on the waist belt for a phone or multi-tool
Thule Legend GoPro Sling is a light sling bag to carry up to two GoPro cameras and accessories, always right at hand. Its padded compartment also carries gear like extra memory, batteries, and LCD backpacks, plus remote controllers and other accessories. It also gets the same style removable foam inserts to organize everything and keep it safe. The Sling Pack also includes:
- a thin sleek shape designed ot keep the bag out of the way of activity
- a shoulder strap pocket for quick phone or remote storage
- a sternum strap to hold the pack in place
The Thule Legend packs will be available in May 2016.
The Legend GoPro Case offers smart organization for the action cam essentials in both a small and a large case to transport either on or two cameras and their accessories. Both crushproof cases with removable foam padded compartments are designed to protect everything you need and drop into a larger bag.
Their semi-hardshell construction and an tough exterior finish make them easy to grip and should stand up to serious abuse. Like the packs, the high-visibility/high-contrast blue lining is designed to make it easy to find even small gear in an otherwise crowded pack.
The Thule Legend cases will be available in February 2016.
