bag fastener at Oxmox Messenger bag

Messenger bag with Fidlock bag fastener

Anyone who puts their hand on the touch-it messenger bag from Oxmox for the first time will get an extraordinary surprise because, as if by magic, the messenger bag changes color from dark gray to light gray when it is touched. We’ll let you in on the secret: the bag flap is made of thermochromic material, meaning that it reacts to heat. The magic of the Oxmox touch-it messenger bag  extends to the bag fastener. What better choice could there be than a Fidlock fastener, which conceals itself invisibly under the messenger bag flap and closes magically – magnetically. Although it has nothing to do with magic and is all down to the Fidlock concept, the SNAP pull bag fastener is just as surprising. It can also be opened conveniently using the pull strap. In a nutshell: Oxmox creates the perfect touch effect and Fidlock provides the ideal pull effect.

quick release fasteners for camera equipment backpacks

MindShift Gear camera equipment backpacks with magnetic fasteners

Taking photos in the blink of an eye – this is what was important for the product designers at MindShift Gear during the development of the Rotation 180°  camera equipment backpack . The result is revolutionary and guarantees your snapshots: whereas camera equipment backpacks or bags usually have to be taken off in order to get to your camera equipment, in this case, the hip bag, which is safely stored in the lower section of the backpack, can be rotated to allow access to your camera and lens in the blink of an eye. Just slide open the SLIDER 25 plastic shield quick release fastener and pull the hip bag out of its base in the camera equipment backpack round to the front of your body: open, take out the camera, shoot.

Whether during transport or during rotation – the equipment remains safely stored and is prevented from falling out. The intuitive use of the MindShift Gear camera equipment backpacks, or rather the quick release fastener, is both a crucial characteristic of the product and a fundamental component when seconds really do matter. Here, the SLIDER 25 plastic shield from Fidlock is used, which fixes the hip bag securely under the camera equipment  backpack and releases it for quick access in the blink of an eye by sliding open to the side – even if you only have one free hand and are wearing gloves.
