  • Ronald van Kooten says:

    When I win the price, then ill get my bike an camerabag and go bicycle in the national park: The Veluwe in the Netherlands and take picutres with my Nikon D3100 of the beautiful nature and film the bycycle tour. When i come home, i send the film to my PC with the Wifi.

  • Pam says:

    well, i would post a pic of my current camera bag, but sadly i don’t have one 🙁 i would use this bag to carry all my gear when my girls and i go on bike rides/photo rides/walks. the helmet would not only protect my cranium 🙂 but having the ego+wifi camera would be fun way to document our adventures…giving it a new perspective. would love to test it out at the beach, too, for underwater adventures.

  • Daniel Mansel says:

    The helmet camera could be used for any number of activities. Filmin/photographingg ATV trails or bike path. The bag on the other hand would make a great upgrade for my current lowepro slung bag that is beginning to feel too cramped for my current equipment load.

  • Dave Benson says:

    I need a helmet to replace my old one, so that is perfect, and the camera would record all the wonderful places I would cycle so I could share it with my kids (all grown up)… and I still have a small corner in my Vertex 300 where it could fit when not in use….

  • Mike says:

    I would live with them!

    I have a SlingShot 202, it’s a great bag but it’s been a while I was looking for a backpack and the Hatchback is just what I need, it is safe, comfort and has more space for personal stuff and I don’t need to use another bag for my tablet 🙂

    This is the kit that I would never leave at home, I would take it everywhere with me, beach, mountains or city, I would never miss a shot again if I win this set.

  • Dan hawk says:

    Ohhh….looks like a great combo for documenting the daily bike commute. Bag for carrying the daily big gear and the helmet cam for the ride.

  • Rhys Bowley says:

    I would use the gear whilst motorbiking through the mountains of Wales. We get a lot of wind and rain here, so I’m always looking for gear that’s up to the job.

  • Saifuddin says:

    Cycle is my prime way to go around the city and I use Lowepro Photo Sport 200 AW but hatch pack seems more practical and convenient and with Liquid Image’s Ego + WiFi action cam, underwater housing, and a vented helmet mount it will be lethal.

  • Jesi says:

    Wow this combo is so fun! I would use the bag to stash my growing number of cameras/video cameras and accessories to capture every detailed moment of my two little boys. The camera would be so much fun to mount on the boys (age 2 & 5) helmets to get their perspective of the world! Thank You!

  • MJ I. says:

    As a journalism (-photojournalism) student, I’d use this bag while I’m on assignments, or out on the trails and urban wandering. The Ego+wifi cam, with it’s hd capabilities, will come in handy for recording footage while I’m riding or out in the water, documenting my adventures.

  • Jordan Egli says:

    The drawstring back pack just isn’t cutting it anymore. I need to protect my gear. I need something that can take the fast paced action of my life. I will use this equipment to help tell the stories of the crazy adventures I find myself on. From mountain biking on the side of a shear cliff, to kayaking on the bay trying to catch the big one. I need this to help make telling the stories possible.

  • Jeff says:

    The Ego and Photo Hatchback 16L AW would be perfect to take on family holidays and bike rides.

  • Dustin H. says:

    I would use the bag to carry any photo gear I want around the mountain while I document my snowboarding first person with the Ego + Wifi camera!

    • Kimberly C. says:

      The Photo Hatchback 16L would be perfect for my hikes to do wildlife photography! I would have a blast with the Ego + WiFi action cam and accessories too! The underwater housing would help me to get some incredible water shots and I wouldn’t have to worry about the cam in bad weather! With the Photo Hatchback 16L paired with the Ego + WiFi action cam and accessories, I could easily bike to new locations too and it would be easier to maneuver into perfect spots for animal and nature shots!

  • Andrew says:

    I would use the setup to document my kayaking adventures.
