‘Flens‘ is Flemish for pancake. Hence the pancake-form we called it flens. And that it contains the word lens is just coincidence – there is not much more to say about the name. More on functionality though:
We made the Flens from a nice, soft and strong double faced fabric with a chamois-like inside and tricot outer. You can wrap your binoculars, lenses, bodies, flashgun, ball head, envelope your filters or iPad in it or whatever gear that needs some protection – or just to prevent the small items rattling around between all the other stuff. Flens comes in a cute little pouch to keep it clean when not in use. The velcro is positioned in a way that it can almost always be fastened.
For bigger items we made a square one of 50x50cm and the weight is near to nothing. Colours can change.
We use them a lot inside and outside our photo backpack.
