CRDBAG CRDPOUCH Review – Newsshooter


CRDBAG is a Swedish start-up that specializes in creating storage solutions for filmmakers and photographers.

CRDPOUCH is their latest product and it consists of a range of different sized pouches that can be used to store a variety of items.

Why pay more when you can buy cheap cases & bags?

Bags, cases, and storage items are not that exciting, however, they are a crucial component in any shooter’s arsenal. Being organized and efficient saves time and knowing exactly where that cable or product is can be very helpful when you are dealing with lots of kit.

Look, you could spend a few bucks and buy cheap pouches and cases from a stationary store and that may get the job done, but usually, the zippers end up getting broken or the material ends up getting ripped. I am guilty as charged when it comes to trying to shoehorn gear into cases and pouches that aren’t made for those types of products.

Good quality bags, cases, and pouches will cost you more money upfront, but in the long run, they will still be going strong years later. A good proportion of the bags and cases I own are either made by Think Tank, Porta Brace, or Pelican. All of these cases and bags have traveled around the world with me and they are still going strong more than a decade later.

I have always struggled to find good-quality pouches and small cases. Most of the ones I have been using I bought from the ¥100 store (like the $1 store in the US) here in Japan. As the saying goes, you pay for what you get. Most of them end up breaking or the zippers come off or jam up and you can’t open the pouch.
