p.1 #1 · TrekPak - a Velcro-free bag/case padding system


Been looking to get a hard case sometime in the near future, and a Gizmodo link to this project caught my eye. It's a system of case padding that uses simple U-shaped pins (like thin metal rods bent double) that slide into the padded walls to anchor the walls and form the joins. Looks interesting to me, but I'm new enough to camera care that I might be missing something obvious.

Sorry if this is old news. It's new to me, and when I tried to search for existing mentions of TrekPak, I found none.

Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with TrekPak in anyway. Haven't even pledged yet. Just wondered if this looked as interesting to others as it does to myself.

Hi,
My daughter, a photographer and engineer friend designed the TrekPak system. The engineer previously won the MIT robot competition, so I'd suggest obvious concerns have been addressed. The system was created in response to carrying photo gear in a traditional photo-back pack through Vietnam during a tour. The system will fit any bag, but is best with a back-hugging hiking pack so the load is much more comfortable than any other dedicated photo pack.

I ordered one of the 215 preorder bags from kick starter. Honestly the Velcro and not being able to adjust easily or on the fly is my main complaint with my current bags and this system looks amazing.

Very cool project and very worth it.
