About

Meet Umbrill: the everyday air-cushioned camera backpack intuitively designed to provide safety, performance, and comfort.

Average camera backpacks will not sufficiently protect your camera gear from unfortunate falls or accidents. In considering camera bags for both everyday users and professional photographers, we designed a backpack that can withstand these problems without sacrificing functionality and effectiveness.  

We bring you an innovative finished product that protects your camera gear and accessories from unfortunate incidents and gives you more flexibility when you need to capture that rare moment in seconds. 

To this end, now is a perfect time to introduce Umbrill to you.    

Umbrill is like no other average camera bag. Umbrill's patented innovative air-cushion technology and focus on functionality will offer you unprecedented protection and the confidence you need to get the perfect shot.   

This revolutionary camera bag is ergonomically designed for the best performance and offers flexibility so that your camera is ready whenever and wherever. Vetted by professional photographers and engineers, Umbrill is the very camera bag you've dreamed of.   

Umbrill is designed to provide ultimate protection from such external shocks, all while offering slick, modern design and functionality with lots of storage and fast access. After numerous experiments and field tests by professional photographers, we came up with the best solution – creating an air-cushioned insert, which offers excellent protection for your camera without increasing weight or volume of the bag.

Umbrill offers spacious storage space for all your camera gears neatly organized in the camera compartment with its foldable dividers. It also has an intelligent layout with versatile set of pockets securing all the accessories and your personal items including fleece-lined pockets for your cellphone and laptop, and hidden pockets for passports and wallets. Its fast access side opening allows you to quickly reach your camera without fully removing or setting down the bag. With Umbrill, you will have mobility and fast access to your gear to capture the moment for the perfect shot.

While Umbrill’s innovative air cushion protects your camera and accessories from external shock, when not in use, the air-cushioned camera compartment can be removed for your daily use. Its unique, slim ergonomic design ensures that it does not hinder your arm movement even when you are cycling or skateboarding. It is an everyday bag that never stops serving its multi-functional purpose.

Umbrill is a product that we ourselves want to use. Like our end users, we're a mishmash of technologists, photographers, travelers, designers, parents, budding entrepreneurs, and everything in between.

Umbrill's multi-functional purpose is not limited to cameras and gear. Its innovative air cushion protects your camera and accessories; however, when not needed, the air cushion insert and its contents can be easily removed. Users can use Umbrill as a regular backpack in their daily life. 

| Air cushion for shock absorption

The built-in air cushion is what makes Umbrill distinct from average camera bags. You can inflate the air cushion with an air blower that is used to clean the camera and adjust the air pressure for the best protection. It keeps the bag light while absorbing shock, isolating vibration, and reducing fall impact. 

| Multiple sub-divided side and hidden pockets 

This durable, compact active pack fits equipment comfortably and organizes a variety of accessories in its sub-divided side pockets and intelligent layout. You will be surprised not only at how much you can carry in the bag, but how easy it is to access them from the side pockets.

| Quick-access from side opening

A streamlined side pouch design encourages the user to easily access the bag while carrying for quick, unplanned snapshots. The airbag insert’s folding partitions allow you to create the best construction to fit your camera gear and accessories.

| Tripod attachment 

Umbrill is capable of securing your tripods and action cams better than any other camera bag in the market. Unlike webbing straps or buckles that most camera bags use to attach a tripod, Umbrill’s tripod attachment pocket keeps the tripod tightly secured to the bag, eliminating vibration and thus making you feel more comfortable wearing it.

| Ergonomic design for best performance 

Umbrill is ergonomically designed so that it won't interrupt any of your movements. Its width was purposefully designed to not interfere with your arm movement when you are trying to balance while, for example, skateboarding or snowboarding.

| Multi-functional

You can easily and conveniently remove the air-cushioned camera compartment. There is no need to remove camera gear one by one from the compartment. Simply pull out the insert pack to convert the bag into your everyday backpack. Umbrill adapts to your gear and lifestyle, no matter where you're going or what you're carrying. 

| Various Storage Space

Umbrill knows how much storage space you need as a photographer. Take everything with you and Umbrill will keep them all secured and organized.

The ultimate motive behind this camera bag is to eliminate material damage and reduce any kind of ergonomic stress that comes with carrying a backpack.
