The Roadie Video Shoulder Bag was designed from the ground up with photo and video gear in mind. It fits the latest DSLR systems, from Canon (5D Mark III, EOS-1D X) and Nikon (D4, D800), plus larger video cameras such as RED (Epic, Scarlet), Canon (C100, C300, C500), and Sony (FS100, FS700), along with a full assortment of accessories.
This dual-height bag is unique in that it can convert from fitting a full camera system broken down and packed tightly, to fitting a full camera rig on 12-inch rails with a matte box, monitor and follow focus attached. The padded top equipment tray, designed for audio gear such as shotgun and lav mics, portable mixers and headphones, is completely removable and can be carried separately, making room for the height of an assembled rig.
Video-specific features are found throughout, such as side cargo pockets for batteries and large cables, and versatile dividers that can be adjusted to fit everything you want to bring to a shoot. Every detail of the bag was developed in cooperation with working filmmakers and photographers across a broad range of styles and pursuits to ensure this bag adapts to meet a wide variety of needs. As with the rest of the bags in the Roadie collection, the shoulder bag is made with the finest materials available. Itís built to withstand the rigors of heavy travel and continuous use, while protecting expensive camera gear in every conceivable type of location.
Here’s a look at what makes THE ROADIE Shoulder Bag so special:
1680 Ballistic Nylon ExteriorHow durable is ballistic nylon? It was developed for use in military jackets
to protect soldiers from bullets and
shrapnel. Itís the toughest material
around, and thatís why we use it.
Our ballistic nylon has a
polyurethane coating to make it
Removable Audio Equipment TrayThe top equipment tray was designed for audio
gear, and it can be carried separately with its
own zippered cover and carry handle.
Double-Height InteriorOne of the challenges of building a rig on a shoot is, "Now where do I put it without having to break it down?" The Roadie features a double-height interior that allows a full rig to be stored inside. Just pull out the removable audio gear tray in the top and the collapsible dividers in the bottom, and a rig slides right inside.

The shoulder bag meets common
carry-on standards for overall
dimensions. Since the bag is the
height of a fully assembled rig, you
should always confirm carry-on
regulations with your airline ahead
Included Beverage HolderThe bag includes a side-mount water
bottle holder that snaps onto the loops
on either side of the bag. On a good
shoot day, use it for water. On a bad
shoot day, use it for liquor. We're not
here to judge.
Built-in Protected Laptop StorageA rear padded sleeve protects a laptop up to 15
inches, and is quick and easy to open at airport
security. This sleeve can also be used for rig rails and
other tall accessories that are sometimes hard to
configure in the main camera compartment.
The main camera compartment
with Adjustable Dividers
includes a versatile padded divider
kit that can be customized for both
DSLRs and larger video camera
systems. This interior can be quickly
converted from a compact Canon
5D/Nikon D800 system to a larger
RED/Sony system in just a couple of
