Vanguard Xcenior 36 Laptop Shoulder Bag is the modern professional photographer's studio on the go, delivering impressive performance in all of the key areas. It has a large capacity to keep an array of gear organized. It's a standout protector, too, with an innovative multi-layered interior and anti-shock bottom. Busy photographers can pack a complete set of gear and tote it from shoot to shoot with ease.
With great security and highly comfortable features, Xcenior stands out as one of the best on the market. Beyond its sleek, attractive design, Xcenior takes protection seriously. Anti-scratch, moisture-resistant fabric on its bottom keeps gear protected from dust and water. It has a molded, semi-solid exterior. It also boasts a tripod carrying system. A full-size tripod stays ultra safe by conveniently securing to Xcenior's sturdy handle and holding snugly against the bag with two adjustable straps.
Unlike other shoulder bags, Xcenior is customizable, too, with dividers with hook-and-loop fasteners. Photographers can tailor it to fit their exact needs, which may change depending on the scenario and gear. There are numerous pockets on all sides and on the interior to keep all of accessories stored organized. A side-hanging system enables you to attach lens cases and pouches. Its rain cover conveniently tucks away for use when needed. Also features a bonus accessory pouch and memory card sleeve.
Security is also a top priority for Xcenior, too, with three secure points on the upper part of the bag, so you're assured your expensive gear is safe. Xcenior is shockingly comfortable to carry, even when fully loaded. An anti-slip shoulder strap evenly distributes weight on your shoulder and its innovative padded t-shaped handle provides reliable support.

I'm a working freelance director of photography with a C300 package, canon lenses, etc. I do a lot of doc work and have been trying to simplify my travel days, specifically when flying. I am able to fit a c300, 2-3 lenses, audio, a litepanel miniplus light as well as a compact shoulder rig and enough cards/batteries to keep going for day all within this bag which - and this is the best part - can be carried on to an airplane (in most instances). The optional backpack attachment is great when you're traveling alone, and the bag itself is well padded and secured. I've literally done 5-7 day shoots with this bag and an additional backpack. Obviously that's a very trimmed down package, but when you need to be light, this bag is it. The only thing that is frustrating is if I'm on a small plane the bag itself doesn't really compress any more than it's original shape - which is good for keeping your gear safe, but not so great for cramming into a cramped space. I highly recommend this bag if you need a versatile set bag, an ultralight travel bag, or a heavy duty lens/AC bag that isn't an unwieldy hard case.
