The Call of the Wild: Ruggard Lynx SlingPacks


Whether photographing far-off lands, or your own backyard, Ruggard has answered the call of the wild with its inspired collection of Lynx SlingPacks. Available in three sizes—45, 55, and 75—SlingPacks can be worn in sling or backpack mode. For use as a left or right sling bag, simply unbuckle the bottom of either shoulder strap, connect it to the opposite side, and store the unneeded strap behind the padded back panel—brilliant! And with sleek styling, black nylon, and bright yellow piping, they look great, too.

Gear is organized with touch-fastening dividers and easily accessed from the left, right, and front. Fully featured, SlingPacks have top storage compartments, dual side pockets with flaps, a front tripod attachment, top handle, waist belt, hip pads, rear trolley strap and a rain cover. The 45 holds a DSLR with attached 200mm lens, extra lenses, flash, accessories and a 13" laptop. Going up in size, the 55 accommodates a 15" laptop and added gear. The largest of the three, the 75, stores a 17" laptop and more equipment. The SlingPack you select will depend on how you wish to answer your own call of the wild.
