Modular Configurations - Core Units allow for side, rear and top access configurations. Our 4-size system offers many possible layouts to customize the amount of camera and adventure gear for the day ahead of you. One Medium Core Unit combined with two Small Core Units offers the largest number of useful configurations. This system also ensures you never carry more padding and weight than absolutely necessary to protect the day’s camera kit, and that all remaining pack space can be dedicated to clothing and personal gear.
Pro Body and Lens Fit - The Medium Core Unit is designed for larger camera bodies and longer lenses, such as DSLRs with a booster/grip, and lenses as long as 70-200mm 2.8. It is designed to fit gear with greater depth requirements, though it is just as useful for protecting a larger kit of mirrorless or compact DSLR gear.
Versatile Core Skins - The Medium Core Unit includes a multi-purpose skin designed to be light and packable. The Skin’s primary function is as a storage case for the padded Core Unit. When your gear is at home and not in use, the skin keeps it sealed and dust free. Its secondary function is as a packing cell. A user can fill it with clothing or other common items and pack it in their backpack or carry-on roller. It offers an extra layer of organization to your workflow and travel transitions. The shell material has water resistant PU coating and meets C6 environmental standards.
Perfect Fit - We sized our Core Units to fit perfectly in both the Shimoda backpacks and the Carry On Roller. The fit ensures that space is never wasted and packing is simple.
EVA Side Walls and Dividers - Core Units are constructed with compression molded EVA sidewalls and dividers, providing high-density protection without excess weight or materials. Our one-piece construction and intelligent shapes makes insert and divider set-up easy.
High-Visibility Color - The Core Unit interior is a bright-yet-subtle blue color, which makes locating items inside the unit simple and obvious.
Minimalist Construction - The Jersey exterior shell and Tricot lining are laminated to the EVA. By tightening up and simplifying the design in this way, we can eliminate any sloppiness and movement with dividers. The shape of the actual divider tabs has a unique inward taper. This simple concept makes setting up and adjusting the Core Unit much easier by limiting the catching of the fastener and the pulling on the sidewall material.
Tapered Shape - Features a tapered shape from base to top. The base has greater depth so users can comfortably place a Pro-sized body – but then tapers by 2cm to meet most common camera gear heights. This gives the user more internal space in the backpack and eliminates wasted space in the Core Unit.
