Is the bag waterproof or water-resistant?

Etchr bags are water-resistant and have some waterproof components. Water-resistant is not the same as waterproof. Water-proofing is achieved by ultrasonically welding plastic panels together to create a watertight membrane - an extremely expensive undertaking that would likely triple or quadruple the price of their products if used.

The Polyester shell covering the outer surface of our products is waterproof and the Toughtek covering high-wear areas is waterproof. The zips and stitching are water-resistant. All these features work to greatly minimize moisture entering the internal compartments and damaging your belongings and art. However, their bags cannot be classified as waterproof strictly speaking.

What components come with the Art Satchel?

Our Art Satchel comes with 2 x Tool Strip, 8 x Corner Tab, 2 x Elastic Tab, 2 x Buckle Strap, 2x Tripod Strap, 1 x Shoulder Strap and 1 x Tripod Mount Board. Some people prefer to keep a few spare components and that is why Etchr makes them available. Contact us if you are interested in spare parts.

Does the Art Satchel come in different sizes and colours?

At this stage the Art Satchel comes in black only and one size. Etchr would love to offer it in the future but probably not in the short term, given that the minimum quantity required by their manufacturer is quite substantial. If the volume of orders can grow significantly, then they will be happy to add the colour variation to our range!

What size laptops/ tablets will the Art Satchel hold?

The Art Satchel is designed to carry a smaller tablet in the removable Storage Caddy or a larger tablet / laptop in the laptop sleeve or in the main compartment. The maximum outer tablet/ laptop dimensions that the Art Satchel can hold (in the main compartment) are 14.9 x 11.8 x 1.5 in (38 x 30 x 3.5cm).

What size paper will the Art Satchel support?

The Art Satchel is designed to support A4 size traditional mediums. 

How do different modes of the Art Satchel work?

Etchr's Art Satchel and Slate Range are flexible and modular in design to help accommodate various needs and scenarios. Their co-founder Darren has prepared detailed explanation videos for Art Satchel to walk you through the functionalities available in different modes:

Tripod Considerations:

The heavier build aluminium tripod legs are more rigid and sturdy than the lighter build aluminium legs. It’s a trade-off between portability and stability. If your Etchr product is loaded up with gear, lightweight aluminium legs are more prone to instability whereas the extra ballast from the heavier builds offers greater stability. Ultimately, it's a personal decision as to what is more important.

The second part you'll want to look at is the head – this attaches to the Etchr tripod attachment plate. There are a few different types of heads but the most common are ball-heads and three way / axis heads. Etchr’s advice is to generally ignore the ball heads, unless you're only going to be carrying very little gear. They're ok for cameras but for Etchr products the ball head mechanism can sometimes slip when you're working with them. The 3 way / axis heads allow you to lock all 3 axis, so it's much more capable overall.

Finally, make sure to look for an easy to use spring loaded quick release plate on the head. A fiddly mechanism to deal with can be annoying in the field.
