About this project

 

KOHIKO is an excellent, convenient and modular sling camera backpack. It’s unique design will suit a wide range of professional and amateur photographers, who like taking still pictures without carrying too much gear. KOHIKO is small enough to be convenient, but big enough to carry a useful number of items.  

KOHIKO gives you a quick access to your camera so you do not miss a masterpiece shot. Just see, take you gear out and shoot! 

Available in Black (standard color)... 

  

 … and four extra colors.

KOHIKO is very comfortable for hiking, biking or travelling. KOHIKO are designed for everyday use in any environment. 

Urban streets, sea beach, jungle safari or tracks in highlands — KOHIKO is your best choice! 

KOHIKO is perfect for taking only what you really need. 

Every photographer dreams about taking a good photo. You do not necessarily have to carry several cameras and 20+ additional lenses; there is no point to carry all your equipment at once all day long to make a masterpiece shot. You may lose your chance due to being exhausted or you could miss it because you do not have enough time to remove a backpack, take your camera out and pick up a lense. On the other hand, if you only have your faithful camera at your fingertips, a couple of additional lenses and a comfortable backpack to carry your small set. KOHIKO is the best choice for this purpose.

KOHIKO gives you an instant access to a camera and other gear 

Like in a child’s play, even on the go all you need is a smooth movement from your back to front and your gear is there for you. Your KOHIKO keeps your D/SLR ready to shoot without any delay...

 ...memory cards...

...or simply use your KOHIKO as a camera support. 

No need to remove your KOHIKO from your back, sit down on the ground and dig inside it. Just move it from your back to front for a quick access (or for security in a crowd). All you need is at your fingertips in a second! 

  

 

KOHIKO provides flexibility

Reconfigurable partitions in the main compartment maximize flexibility...

...or can be configured to maximize the space.. 

You can increase the storage capacity by easily attaching additional pouches to your KOHIKO. 

A small tripod or a windbreaker can be attached by the removable straps at the bottom of your KOHIKO. 

A flat pocket at the back of your KOHIKO is convenient for small sunscreen, documents, wallet, manuals, netbook or a small tablet. 

There are two pockets for memory cards, filters, cables, cleaning kit, batteries, pens, keys, small instruments, etc. 

There is a special pocket with an elastic for a small umbrella, flashlight or gloves. 

No matter your needs, KOHIKO provides the security, flexibility, and capacity to meet them! 

KOHIKO protects your gear 

Your fragile and expensive photo gear is covered by a thick cocoon which protects it from an accidental shock or falls.

KOHIKO is made of a nylon fabric with a special polyurethane coating and includes a Teflon® protector for water and grime resistance. 

The nylon Duraflex® buckles are ruggedly designed to withstand the weight of your gear. 

YKK® high strength zippers and zipper tracks reliably secure your photo gear inside your KOHIKO. Para-cord zipper pulls provide convenient rapid access to your equipment for the perfect shot. 

KOHIKO comes with an included cover which protects your gear from rain, dust or the heat of the sun. 

KOHIKO is convenient and ergonomic 

A wide (10 cm / 4 inch) and thick (1 cm / 3/8 inch) padded strap distributes the weight evenly on your shoulder. The shoulder strap can be easily adjusted to suit any height.

A mesh layer on the shoulder strap and back of your KOHIKO provides separation and ventilation, increasing comfort on a hot day. 

There is an additional belt to fix your KOHIKO on your back during running, cycling, hiking or can be used as a carrying handle. 

KOHIKO is practical 

KOHIKO is lightweight — the weight is about 950 grams (2 lbs)! It is small enough to take to a club; urban or country exploring; and will fit easily under an airline seat.

It is designed with style.

 

   

Pouch Kit — is a minimum set of the pouches that can be used separately or together with your KOHIKO. 

• Takawai 

For storing camera lenses, spyglass or a water bottle; protecting gear from impact.

• Kotore 

For storing cellphones, small cameras, iPods, documents, wallets, and/or notepads.

• Ponguru + Battery Holder 10 

A pouch and organizer for storing additional battery packs.

And you can put all pouches together.
