The Rucksack 35 in black canvas, top grain black leather and solid brass fixings is a perfect choice for those who want a versatile alternative to a messenger style bag. Similar to Billingham Hadleys the main compartment contains a padded insert with lid, made of fabric covered foam which protects camera equipment on all sides. This insert is removable with two simple pop-clips turning the Rucksack 35 into a stylish casual backpack. Both the main compartment and the front pocket have double zips to allow convenient access to content, and these are protected from rain by valances. The smaller front pocket has a rain flap secured with a clogball brass fastening for security with ease of access. The ergonomical design shoulder straps are lined with spacer fabric to promote breathability as well as having brass loops so the straps can be easily adjusted.
