The black Escape Backpack from Clik Elite contains a myriad of features that are sure to satisfy even the most demanding of photographers and outdoor enthusiast. Starting with its heavy-duty ballistic nylon fabric, The Escape offers durability, functionality and comfort as well as a flexible path to a smooth workflow.

At less than 4 lb, this pack can hold more than its weight in gear - both pro and personal. It holds your DSLR with attached lens in shooting position within the camera bay. In addition, you have room for 3-4 more lenses that can be separated by the Escape's internal padded dividers. Unzip the pack and you can reach into the bay for the camera/lens combo or gain access to the rest of the contents. This pack is also rated to hold an iPad.

The pack is carried by its two adjustable shoulder straps and supported by an adjustable contoured, padded waist belt with quick-release buckle and adjustable sternum (chest) strap. As a neat little feature, the shoulder straps have handy attachment points for various pouches to hold additional lenses, a lightmeter or other equipment. Since this pack is made for serious outdoor use, the molded back panel is vented for heat dissipation and also wicks moisture. The small top zippered accessory pocket is an organizer that accommodates those items that you need most often like filters, maps, keys, batteries and memory cards. The larger outer front zippered pocket is designed to carry extra clothes or even your lunch. Every outdoor photographer generally needs a tripod and yours will be held using the "tuck-away" attachments that hold it firmly on the back of the pack. When not needed, they're stored out of sight. On days when you aren't carrying much gear, use the front compression strap to minimize the footprint of the pack to make it more compact and comfortable.

Inside the Escape, your gear is held within padded and adjustable dividers that can be configured in whatever design you need. The camera with attached lens is cradled in its own "nest" standing ready in shooting position. There is a unique hydration compartment that will hold a 3 liter bladder to keep you going on long treks while exterior mesh airline-style side pockets can hold additional water bottles.

Marginal weather? No worries. There's a convenient, fold-out rain fly that can be rapidly deployed to protect The Escape including the tripod. The strong zippers have pull tabs that are easy to use even with gloves on. Clik Elite has even included a removable accessory pouch that can hold cords and other random items. The Escape is backed by Clik Elite's 2-year warranty.

      Comments about Clik Elite Escape Backpack (Black):

      After 3 trips out in nasty conditions at time I am extremely please with the performance and reliability of this backpack. Great storage, great padding, comfortable and most of all kept everything dry. I definitely recommend this unit for serious day-night shooters.

        Good pack for a DLSR, Glass and multiple accessories for your camera. Good quality, only draw back, wish it had shoulder load straps to pull the top closer to your body. Overall a good product.

        So Far So Good.

        By Mark

        from Calif.

        Comments about Clik Elite Escape Backpack (Black):

        The Ciick Elite is a well made and designed pack. It seems to be the perfect size for my travel needs. Looks like it will be good for a carry on. It will easily hold all the gear I like to take along as well as good space for extra personals. The next question is gonna be how the pack rides when loaded. It does have a nice waist belt so I think this pack is going to be a winner for me. Looking foreword to my next trip.

        Comments about Clik Elite Escape Backpack (Black):

        Purchased this backpack for my Canon 1Ds MkIII, as my Canon custom backpack was smaller and of course..ran out of room. This pack allows quick access to my camera from the top without opening the entire bag, has more room and flexibility, i.e. adjustable straps and compartments to my needs was a plus, exterior and interior pockets suited my purpose for batteries and cables along with an intact rain cover that pulls out, hidden underneath the bag- covering the entire bag with a color that can be seen from a distance. Zippers are large and very secure attached with easy pull Nylon straps and tabs. The big plus on top of all this were adjustabe side straps for monopods or small tripods and a front adjustable strap with lower pocket for a larger tripod...big plus! The adjustable back/waist belt support felt comfortable enough for me. I could not beat it for the price and I am very pleased.

          Had trouble finding a pack for my height (6'3"). The Escape fits well and holds a fair amount of gear. I like the top camera access. No need to open up the whole pack to get the camera. The tripod holder is my only real gripe. Anything bigger than a small travel tripod will not stay secure.

          Stylist and well thought out. Confident gear will be safe and dry. Comfortable. Smaller than picture implies. Does not leave room for much else (eg lunch, extra clothing, etc.). Water bladder is not included.
