Sidekick Bag Features

  • 2-in-1 Modular Design
    Just like the original Sidekick, the improved version features a 2-in-1 design. A small Camera Bag on the front clips to a Large Bag in the back. The Camera bag stores one or more Lomographic cameras with lighting-fast access via a velcro flap closure. A small internal pouch holds credit cards, business cards, and cold cash. The Large Bag holds all of your daily essentials and offers a bottom exterior storage flap and an interior zip pocket.
    Depending on your particular needs, these items can be worn together or separately – just affix the large adjustable shoulder strap as needed.
  • Fabric
    The exterior is crafted with 100% Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) – water-resistant, lightweight, super-durable and environmentally friendly synthetic material. Now improved to prevent peeling and tough enough to last through even the hardest wear and roughest hand-washing. The interior is lined with smooth woven cotton fabric – like one of your favourite shirts without all the buttons and collars and such.
  • Colour
    Black as the night – thereby complimenting every outfit that you choose (even the superhero variety).
  • Choose from Two Sizes – Will you go Lite?
    People and their personal transport needs come in all different shapes, so we’ve cut the Sidekick TPE into 2 different sizes.
  • Size

      Main Bag: measures 14″x12″x3″(35×30×7.5cm). Holds a notebook computer (up to 15″ screen width), large magazines, portfolios, or your thick and juicy Chemistry textbook.

      Camera Bag: measures 9.5″x7″x2.5″(24×18×6cm). Accommodates one Lomo LC-A, Actionsampler, Oktomat, or equivalent-sized camera on the left, and a slim electronic device (camera, Ipod, miniature singing garden gnome) on the right.

Sidekick History & Family

Back in 2002, we introduced a new Lomographic bag concept with the name, “Sidekick.” Like a Robin to your Batman or a Sancho to your Don Quixote, the Sidekick Bag is the perfect companion for all of your daily adventures. In one go the Sidekick managed to fulfil a host of Lomographic Golden rules starting uncannily with no.1: “Take your camera Everywhere You Go”. Designed as two independent parts that can be worn together or separately, the Sidekick performs the double-duty of (1) keeping your all-important Lomographic cameras at a finger’s reach and (2) efficiently transporting all of your crucial daily items. When everything fits so conveniently around your shoulder, taking your camera everywhere becomes second nature. Thus, the ever-loyal Sidekick facilitated yet another crucial Lomographic Rule: “Lomography is not interference in your life – but a part of it”.

So began the beautiful friendship between the Lomographer and the Sidekick bag. The original TPE bag proved to be a massive hit within and beyond the Lomographic community – so much so that we’ve commissioned a re-animations of the original – the Sidekick Canvas and the Leather Sidekick bags and the more compact Lite editions. The improved Sidekick bag also comes Lite.

    oh yes Hooi! I'm gonna get one of these new kickside bag! The adoption process has started! Surely the best camera bag I ever had (if we except the skin problems of its past version; but I'm going to dig a hole in my garden and forget about old sad peeling memories... and start a new life with my new kickside companion).
