Quick Overview:

The Action X30 is designed for aggressive photographers looking for efficient, fast access and compact backcountry camera bag. 

It’s built for foul weather and ever-changing environments. This low-profile pack will comfortably fit most mirrorless and DSLR cameras up to a Canon 5D via or our Mirrorless Core Units. Its roll-top access allows users to expand or compress the volume to the demands of the day. A lower-level TPU compression strap ensures greater durability when attaching skis, and its removable helmet strap lets users secure mountaineering, ski or bike helmets to the outside of their pack. The Action – X interchangeable harness features two zippered pockets to carry most phones, water bottles or personal accessories. Both the Action-X30 and X50 feature a revised side access system with a wider and more versatile opening. Finally, its removable belt makes the Action-X30 a stealthy and stylish partner in urban environments.

Multiple Access Points

The Shimoda Action X30 backpack offers rear and side access options. The side opening is ideal for quick, under-the-arm access without completely removing the pack. It’s accessed through a YKK SplashGuard® zipper which protects water and other tiny elements like sand from entering your pack.

The rear opening allows wide, unobstructed access to the bulk of your gear for less time-sensitive shooting situations. It has an EVA-padded door-style opening which acts as added protection against airborne elements in difficult shooting environments and can help keep snow and rain out the gear area. The interior side of the door has a 15-inch laptop sleeve. It sits against the users back and provides fast access at airports and in other efficiency-driven scenarios.

Height-Adjustable Harness

The Action X30 backpack features an adjustable torso height offering three size options with approximately 10 cm (4 in.) of vertical adjustment. This means the same backpack can fit short or tall - male or female torso heights - ensuring a custom fit for every photographer. Having the correct torso fit means that the aluminum internal frame is much more effective in transferring shoulder stress and weight to rest comfortably on the user’s hips.

Core Unit Modular Camera Insert System

Perhaps the most forward-thinking modular camera inserts on the market, Shimoda’s Core Units are simple, smart and multifunctional. A user can increase their layout options with two or more Core Units by stacking and shifting how they are placed in the pack. This system allows configurations to be adjusted to suit changing terrain and environmental conditions.

Compatible Core Units

Medium Mirrorless, included in this kit. 

Note: Core Units must be purchased separately OR in one of the Action X Kits.

Roll-Top Access

Shimoda gave the Action X series roll-top access so the bag can be adjusted to your gear needs while maintaining a tight and compact fit. The roll-top can expand with a volume range of 7-liters. The top section also has an additional quick-access YKK SplashGuard® zipper that makes getting at your gear extremely quick and easy - especially in foul weather.

All Shimoda products come with a 5-year warranty.
