Shimoda makes Camera Bags for adventure photographers and their new collection is no exception. Action X30 targets ambitious, aggressive and athletic content creators who love to challenge - not only their photography skills - but the terrain and experiences the earth has to offer. Take your time and learn about our new collection. We think - like the creators who helped us develop it - you will love it too.

The Shimoda Action Camera Bags are a versatile, multiuse bag.  The Action X30 Backpack can accommodate the combined interests of the adventure photographer, multimedia creator, hiker, or mountain sports enthusiast. Inside, its spacious main compartment has room for a partition system that can form an optional bottom section to enhance the ability to organize the backpack's contents. 

The Action X30 Backpack can be lifted via its built-in haul and side handles, and carried by its adjustable, padded shoulder straps which can be adjusted upward or downward for a better fit. A zipper along the outer edge of the strap which rests over the wearer's left shoulder opens a smartphone pocket, while the outer edge of the strap which rests over the wearer's right shoulder includes a stretchable side pocket that can accommodate a sunscreen tube, insect spray, snacks, or a water bottle. For heavy loads, this backpack's removable waist belt transfers weight to the hips for additional comfort, while the sternum strap further limits unintentional shifting around the wearer.

Featuring a durable, nylon construction, the Action X30 Backpack is built to be weather resistant. To further protect its contents should the bag be placed on a wet surface, the bottom panel is waterproof.

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

All Shimoda products come with a 5-year warranty.

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.


Roll-Top Access

We gave the Action X series a 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.

Fantastic Backpack

I've had this backpack for 2 months and used it every weekend, the odd week day plus a 4 day photography workshop. The material is fantastic, I have no qualms about putting the pack face down in wet grass, snow or sand; I know that my gear is safe. The depth of the pack is just right to carry my mirrorless Nikon Z7 with an L bracket or my crop-sensor DSLR. I fit in three lenses along with the body and a lens adapter. In the top part of the pack, I have my filters, warm jacket, lunch and in the front pocket goes my raincoat, hat, gloves, PLB, headlamp, spare batteries etc. I purchased the Women's Simple Shoulder Straps separately and they make the pack super comfortable for me. This is an extremely well designed and built pack.
