The Multi-Purpose Bag
The Celo 2ed.
By Disse Outdoor Gear
We have a saying here at Heritage Hunters; “You can never have enough gear!” Of course how much gear you bring on your adventures varies but one thing remains constant. The pack you use to carry the gear is often as important as the gear itself. We stumbled across the Celo 2ed. Pack while looking for a compact camera bag for our turkey hunts this spring. Not only are we finding that the pack works excellent as a camera bag, we can see uses for this pack for everyone from the avid outdoorsman to the quintessential soccer mom!
Here are the specs on this pack:
Main Compartment: L 8″ x W 8″ x D 5″
Front Pocket: L 7″ x W 7″ x D 1.5″
Side Pockets: L 6.5″ x W 3.5″ x D 1.5″
Buckled Pouch: L 4.5″ x W 2″ x D 1.25″
Rear Pocket: L 9″ x W 9″
Top Pouch: L 4.5″ x W 2″ x D 1″
Side Pouch: L 5″ x W 3″ x D 1.75″
ID Holder Fits Standard ID
The Celo 2ed. is extremely rugged, well designed and sits comfortably on your shoulder as a side pack (or on your belt with removable belt attachment). It is constructed using UTX buckles, YKK® zippers, Functional, high strength Webbing, High Strength Nylon Stitching, and Rugged 1000D Nylon. The pack has no shortage of pockets and we liked the I.D. holder on the front of the pack for keeping all of our permission cards for the various properties we hunt.
Our only suggestion for these packs would be to offer them in a camo pattern. However with the way licensing fees are these days, we can learn to live with the solid color if the overall cost increased by anything more than a couple of bucks! Maybe a desert camo perhaps?
The functionality of this pack really shines for camera equipment. We found the Celo 2ed. to work incredibly well as a DSLR camera bag with plenty of room for extra lenses, battery chargers, and a small tripod. My wife took this bag to several of our kids’ soccer games and found it big enough for all of the camera equipment and cash/keys/ect. She chose to use the I.D. holder for her driver’s license and cash. In fact, I wish I would have found the Celo 2ed. before I spent the $50 on the Nikon Camera bag specifically designed for the camera.
The Celo 2ed. also works exceptionally well for our new Canon HV 40 HD video camera. The HV 40 is smaller than our GL2 camera and fits easily in the pack with all the extras (Shotgun Mic, remote mics, tapes, flashlight, and lens wipes).
Turkey hunters will also love the Celo 2ed. as a call pack. The pouches and pockets easily fit box, pot and mouth calls all in one pack. We actually found it easier to find our calls quickly with this pack versus trying to remember which side pocket in our vests we put a specific call. It’s easy on/off nature as an over-the-shoulder style pack works well for a run-and-gun style turkey hunt.

We can see many other uses for the Celo 2ed. From fishing and hiking, to snowmobiling, mountain-biking, and all things tactical. The Celo 2ed. pack is now our go-to pack for our camera equipment. It is a rugged, well designed pack that is comfortable to wear in whatever your outdoor adventure entails. The price of the Celo 2ed. is $69.99 and can be purchased directly from
