Modular Configurations – The Core Unit system 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.
Mirrorless/Compact DSLR Body and Lens Fit - The Mirrorless Medium Core Unit is designed for mirrorless, rangefinder and compact DSLR camera bodies with lenses as long as 70-200mm 2.8.
Space-Saving Folding Rim - Using a unique fold-over upper rim, this Core Unit allows for a more efficient use of space which can potentially lead to a lower overall backpack profile. When using shorter cameras and lenses, the 3 cm (1.2 in.) rim folds down so you gain a little more volume out of your backpack or compress it further. This also provides an extra point of equipment protection along the Core Unit’s outer edge. When your gear requires the full Core Unit height, just fold the sides back up to the standard open-rim configuration.
Versatile Core Skins - The 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.
