A634 — Reporter’s Waist Pack

This is a minimally padded bag with numerous pockets and slots for mobile phone, sunglasses, lenses, small camera bodies, point-n-shoot camera, vlogger camera, business cards, coins, video tapes, checkbook, passport etc.

  • Version 3.0 is now padded in the front, back & bottom
  • The V034 Divider Kit includes three moveable and removable padded dividers: 2 each V055 Small Dividers (for putting between lenses) & 1 each V025 Trap Door Divider (for stacking optics)
  • 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 an 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 bag is rather large and may not be suitable for people with a smaller build. (The overall width was originally designed around a Reporter’s Notebook and the height is determined by the height of a common US checkbook.)
