March 2021: Gitzo launches the Légende backpack and Tripod set for creatives.
One of the biggest investments creatives make is the money they spend on their gadgets, from the cameras to the lenses, headphones, and tripods. This created a need for robust and safe carrying bags, be it a suitcase or a backpack, that allows one to safely carry their expensive equipment without worrying too much about any damages when bumped into.
There are many brands that are offering such bags, especially backpacks. With this, you can backpack across any terrain with your gadgets safely stored in your backpack. These are available not just from renowned brands, like Gitzo.
What sets its latest product apart is that you do not get just a backpack for your gadgets but a tripod as well. With the early bird price on Indiegogo of $519.00, 35% off the retail price of 799.00, you can bag yourself the Gitzo Légende tripod traveler kit. For the Gitzo Légende backpack alone, it is available with an early price of $179.00, a 21% discount off its retail price of 229.00. Alternatively, you can opt for the two together at $679.00 at a discount of 33% off its retail price of 1,028.00.
Since the crowdfunding campaign is still ongoing, here are all the details you need to know for the two products if you are considering backing the project:
