The VBag Philip Bloom Edition is a flexible bag designed for protection and rigging of smaller cameras like DSLRs, Canon C300, RED Epic and similarly sized cameras. When air is evacuated from the bag using the included pump, the bag hardens and keeps it's form for extended periods of time (hours or even days depending on humidity, temperature and air pressure). You can use the VBag to rig a camera in the most impossible of places; chairs, trees, cupboards, on the ground, on sticks - basically on whatever surface you need. Oh, and it's a perfect for just wrapping your camera during transport.


UL ( Ultralite ) Material

The ultralight fabric used in the new "Philip Bloom Edition" belongs to the best currently available for this purpose.The abrasion resistance is good but punture resistance of this ultralight material can off cause not be as high as our PRO-LINE series high frequency welded, re-inforced PVC-coated Polyester fibre sheets. Combining air tightness, with strength.


  • First: Place the VBag approximately where you want the camera, close the valves by turning them clockwise. Attach the pump nozzle in one of the valves. Then place the camera firmly on the VBag and wriggle it into position. By wriggling the camera the polystyrene pellets inside the VBag are forced to fit exactly around the base of the camera, or whatever device you want supported. Now evacuate the  VBag using the vacuum pump. The air pressure differential compresses the polystyrene pellets so it "freezes" the current shape of the VBag.
  • You can expect the VBag to maintaine the full vacuum effect for hours. If you want to keep the VBag "froozen", insert the protection caps in the valves. You can maintain the vacuum pressure in a few strokes, with the vacuum pump. Don't be frustrated over an apparent loss of evacuation/firmness after moving quickly from cold to hot settings or exposing an evacuated VBag to direct sunlight or very warm environment such as a film studio. In all these situations the air volume expand inside. This will cause the VBag to soften and lose it's compact state. If so, maintain the vacuum effect by using the vacuum pump.

Working with the VBag demand the same safety precautions as working with any other rigging tools

- Common sense, knowledge and respect for gravity -


The VBag is a new "tool" which invites to many new and different rigging solutions.

When rigging above ground level, or on a moving object, it is most urgent,

always to secure the camera and VBag's with safety straps.


VBag Company's products are designed to be functional, not indestructible.

Therefore, please exercise reasonable caution in site selection and use.

For use on rough surfaces and unknown settings we recommend

to use the CARRYbag as a protecting cover/underlay.


Keep your VBag away from sharp objects.



  • Cleaning: Since the abrasive force of dirt is the fabric's primary enemy, use mild soap and water to occasionally wash the VBag and CARRYbag.
  • Distribution of the filling/granulate: Should the filling/granulate shift to one end of the VBag, simply redistribute it by tapping and shaking the VBag. This is best done with the valves open.
  • Storage: Be sure to store the VBag with both valves open. Store in a dry,dark place.
  • Do not expose the VBag directly to extreme heat sources.
  • Difference in air-pressure: When changing altitude: within a short time, leave the valves open to let the air expand/reduce.
  • If you suspect a leak: As with bicycle tires, it might happen that the VBag gets a leak. If you suspect a leak, let air into the VBag and with the valves closed and the protection caps inserted, pour soap-water unto the suspected area. Apply pressure by folding or rolling the VBag to expel some air. Bubbles or a hissing sound indicates a leak. If the VBag has a leak you can make a quick in-field/on-location repair with almost any kind of tape. This will in most cases do the job for and hour or two. Otherwise use the enclosed adhesive and patches to make a proper repair. Always allowing sufficient drying time. Store the sealed adhesive container in a cold environment, such as a refrigerator.
