The optimal solution for outdoor photographers
You were so excited about your outdoor shoot, but then the rain thwarted your plans. Have you ever been in this situation? Photographing in nature in the rain is anything but easy. On the one hand, you want to protect your camera and yourself from the rain; on the other hand you need both hands for shooting. Because of this, traditional umbrellas are inconvenient; rain gear is unpleasant in longer shootings as it leads to heat build-up and sweating. Now there is a solution to this problem: The Swing handsfree by walimex pro is an absolutely innovative umbrella with which you have both hands free for shooting.
For more flexibility
It is also ideal for hiking and trekking. The fiberglass shaft is telescopic and can be continuously adjusted to your height up to a length of approx. 1m. In order to profit from its advantages, when you are outdoors without a backpack, this carrier system was developed for attaching the umbrella. It is similar to the strap system of a backpack, but it doesn’t weigh you down additionally. That way the umbrella is securely fastened, you have both hands free, and you are protected reliably against the rain due to its large diameter of approx. 114cm. Due to its Teflon treatment, the rain simply rolls off. Depending on the wind direction, the umbrella can be positioned to the right or left.
The system is individually fitted to your height and body shape, just like a backpack carrier system. The straps are well-padded and distribute the weight of the umbrella evenly to both shoulders. That way, a high comfort is guaranteed over long periods of time.
The umbrella and the carrier system also receive top grades regarding the material used and the workmanship: The carrier system consists of snythetic fiber which resists every-day wear and will not let you down regardless of wind and weather conditions. The umbrella roof consists of extremely light and tear-proof polyester fabric, the frame of elastic and sturdy fiberglass. As hardly any metal was used, the particularly lightweight umbrella is noncorrosive, a quality that pays off in the rain. Using the umbrella as a traditional umbrella is not a problem due to the telescopic shaft and the ergonomic handle made from rigid foam. For transporting the umbrella, you can attach the umbrella in its breathable bag to the side of your backpack.
