There’s 36 days left on the clock for Jacob Durham’s Kickstarter campaign to fund the Tekniq Camera Bag, but already he’s raised $23,377 of his overall $50,000 goal. That’s because, as he says, Tekniq is an innovative breath of fresh air for a crowded and basic camera bag market.
Durham designed the camera bag to be modular, which allows for easy transformation between different types of bags. You can go from backpack, to mid-sized sling bag, all the way to small-sized shoulder bag with little to no effort.
“There is nothing like it on the market, and with the value of getting three bags for the price of one, this is the last bag you will ever need,” says Durham.
He got the idea for Tekniq while packing up his gear for a weekend trip a while back. He put his stuff in a large bag, but he knew he’d need a smaller bag for day outings, so he packed a shoulder and mid-sized bag as well.
Simply put it was a huge hassle packing three separate bags. So, he went out and built a better solution in the Tekniq Camera Bag.
The last few months have been spent in prototyping and development out of the Salt Lake City headquarters. Throughout it all Durham has maintained the goal to help photographers spend less time fussing with gear and more time capturing great photos.
“We know that photographers are going to love this bag,” says Durham.
