Echo Niner has a new “Low Profile” bag coming this weekend
Echo Niner has announced a new Low Profile Covert Bag, to be available this weekend.
It must really be designed for clandestine operations and low profile photography work if it’s both ‘low profile’ and ‘covert’! Of course, it could be a double entendre with nuances I just don’t grasp, or perhaps it’s meant to be tongue in cheek. I’m unsure. Either way, it will go live this weekend and if E9′s past kit is any guide the first run will sell out quickly. Orange County based Echo Niner has been building high end outdoor/adventure load bearing kit specifically for photographers and videographers since 2009. Over the last couple of years they have garnered quite a following in the tactical community and have enjoyed increasing success with their morale patches as well.
E9′s Nikki Raye advises the LPCB is a “…simple but effective design. We initially built it to be an insert to the X Messenger, but we liked it so much we decided to build it with stand alone capability.”
The LPCB is fully padded, with three compartments inside for camera gear, lenses, flashes and any other low profile and covert paraphernalia a ninja shutterbug might need. These compartments can be compressed, folded flat or moved around to free up additional space, which will be a nice feature if you have to transition from one type of load carriage (photography equipment) to another (switching to messenger bag or hauling a laptop). The interior liner is not waterproof but it is water resistant.
The LPCB is made in the USA. It will be available in coyote, black and MultiCam and will still fit inside the X Messenger. It will feature plenty of Velcro real estate for obligatory ID panels and morale patches.
