Tread Lite Gear Cuben Roll Top Dry Bag Camera Strap Pocket

I twisted Paul’s arm to make me a shoulder strap roll top camera pocket in cuben fibre hybrid fabric. I’ve been using a bulky Berghaus camera pocket on my Lightwave Ultrahike for a while (the Lightwave won’t accept hip belt pockets). It worked ok but was a bit awkward. This is much more slimline and elegant.

My Sony RX100 fits perfectly into it. It is secured by two elastic straps and a slik clip. I’ve had to sew a grosgrain loop onto the Lightwave shoulder strap as there’s no daisy chain. I’m really pleased with it. It doesn’t swing around like the old Berghaus one and access is easier as it has no padding and liner. It is fully taped so should be pretty waterproof although not immersion proof.

Paul has made eight for sale on his eBay shop. They are a bit fiddly to make, so they are unlikely to be a regular item. If you’re looking for a rucksack strap camera bag, it’s well worth considering.

Disclaimer: I have no financial relationship with TLG and bought this item with my own money.
