Waterproof, shock-proof and off-road compatible The new XCU camera bags from CULLMANN

11. September 2014

Langenzenn (Germany), 11. September 2014 – With the XCU camera bags CULLMANN presents a real photokina highlight.

Ambitious outdoor photographers are not afraid of wet weather or dirt when it comes to shooting their best photo or filming the scene of their life. The equipment must also cope with this. With the new XCU camera bags CULLMANN launches a series that is able to cope with any outdoor trip. The name is program: XCU stands for eXtreme Cullmann.

Several properties at once ensure all-round protection of camera and accessories. Each XCU-bag consists of two separate protection units: The Camera Protection Unit (CPU) is a water and dust-proof camera compartment. It takes up the camera with all equipment. Adjustable Velcro webs separate the individual accessory parts from one another. The complete CPU is then packed up in the water and dust-proof flashy cyan protection bag with roll closure and then stowed away in the camera bag.  Stowage of the equipment in this way is unique and represents the special principle of the XCU bags: The photographer can decide whether the equipment is to be stowed away conventionally, or in the waterproof protection bag for transport.  From the outside the bag also protects with its  extremely hardwearing material. CULLMANN has even thought about protection from underneath: The bottom of the bag is dirt, shock and dampness repellent and made of strong PU-material.

CULLMANN launches the new series with four models, two classic shoulder bags (Maxima 200 and Maxima 530+),one action bag (Action 300) and a backpack (DayPack 400+).

The two shoulder bags are appropriate for medium-size to large camera equipment. The ergonomically shaped shoulder strap ensures high carrying comfort. Belt loop and trolley loop enable alternative ways of transport. Various stowage pockets for memory cards and small items in the inside lid and the mesh bag in the outside lid provide space and enable organization of the bag. The open accessible front bag enables access to all things that need to be at hand. A tripod can be fastened on the upper side. The Maxima 530+ is additionally equipped with a compartment for tablet or iPad with a size of up to 10 inches.

With the same features the Action 300 rounds off the series. It takes up a medium size DSLR camera with lens and is particularly suitable for action photography.

With its large padded waist belt with zip-closed pocket, the XCU DayPack 400+, the backpack in the XCU-series, can also take up heavy loads and is thus especially comfortable for long hiking tours. Thick back padding with ventilation duct for high carrying comfort. An additional signal whistle for emergencies is fastened to the chest belt. The large main compartment is secured by two plug-in buckles and a Velcro loop and can be accessed from the back; the side opening to the camera compartment enables quick access to the camera. The outside side pocket with plug-in buckle and compression belt securely holds the beverage bottle. The DayPack 400+ also comes with an integrated laptop compartment for save stowage of a notebook with a size of up to 15 inches. The tripod is fastened with two metal buckles on the central fastening and the tripod bag.

The outdoor bags XCU are the ideal supplement to the three CULLMANN travel tripods CONCEPT ONE 622T, NANOMAX 400T /430T and REVOMAX 535T.
