A634 — Reporter’s Waist Pack Kit (v. 2.0)

Save $7.00 with purchase of this bundled kit. Includes:

  • A634 Reporters Waist Pack (this is version 2.0 with minimal padding front & back)....version 3.0, coming in the spring of 2023 with fully padded)
  • V034 Divider Kit—
    - Three moveable and removable padded dividers: i.e. 2x V055 Small Dividers (for putting between lenses) & 1x V025 Trap Door Divider (for stacking optics)
  • Your choice of a belt

For the A634 no bundled as a kit, visit this page.

This is a minimally padded bag with numerous pockets and slots for mobile phone, sunglasses, lenses, camera bodies, business cards, coins, video tapes, checkbook, passport, airline ticket etc.

  • A shoulder strap is not included, but the Y315 is recommended as a companion to this product.
  • This bag was originally designed for non-optical items, but we had several requests from shooters who wanted to use it for stowing lenses and bodies, consequently, we started sewing in a piece of 10mm foam that covers the bottom and ends of the bag (version 2.0, April 2022). The front and back of the bag has a minimally-padded 3mm fabric (similar to some classic Domke bags). But the padding on the front and back does not offer the same protection as the Kinesis M330 or M550 multi-lens pouches.
    Additionally, we offer dividers, which are moveable and removeable.
  • The main zipper compartment uses a chemically-treated #8 YKK water-repellent zipper.
  • The base model does not include interior dividers or a waist belt, but it fits on any Kinesis waistbelt or your own pants belt. No adapters are required. Check out the bundled kit here and save!
  • Holds an iPad Mini or a analog Reporter’s Notebook. 
  • If you want more stability while being worn on a Kinesis belt, consider the Y306 Compression Strap or the Y208 Quick-release Strap would work. The latter has an inline quick-release buckle so you can quickly release the tension and then rebuckle to tighten it.

Please note that this product is reasonably large and may not be suitable for people with a smaller build. (The overall width is determined by a Reporter’s Notebook and the height is determined by the height of a common US checkbook.)
