The gray Pro Express Backpack from Clik Elite is an airline carry-on rated bag that is an excellent choice for both city and mountain use. The Pro Express has been elongated but still retains its slim profile that is supported by two strong shoulder straps, waist belt and a chest strap that holds it firmly in place while on the trail. Made from tough water-resistant Cordura nylon, this bag has some unique features that set it apart from other packs in its category.

It's rated to hold your DSLR and 4-5 lenses as well as a full complement of accessories. In addition, there's a padded computer sleeve that will hold your 15" (38.14cm) laptop or even an iPad. For those low light shots that require a tripod, there is a tip-out style tripod sling that will carry just about any size tripod centered on the back of the pack for excellent balance while on the trail.

Inside, it's modular in design with plenty of padded dividers to accommodate your gear. You'll have five adjustable Cradled Lens Dividers to support your optics and two full-length vertical dividers to separate equipment. A top pocket holds your quick-access accessories such as batteries, cables, business cards and memory. All this is found in the top work-space lid that is readily accessed when needed. For those moments when it rains or snows, Clik Elite gives you a hidden rain fly that can be rapidly deployed at will.

The Pro Express is also supplied with a hydration bladder that will hold about 3 liters. Never a worry about becoming thirsty while hiking. And, for those who like to carry some extras, you'll have multiple exterior attachment options. All this is backed by a lifetime warranty from Clik Elite.

        Comments about Clik Elite Pro Express Backpack (Gray):

        I am going on a photo safari to Yellowstone park and wanted this pack for all my gear. It very well made and just the right size. I can pack it anyway I want so as to not overburden myself. The outside is very durable the zippers look like they will outlast me. I think that it is just what I needed for packing into remote locations and have all of the lenses filters and tripod to set up for remote shooting. I love this pack.

        Comments about Clik Elite Pro Express Backpack (Gray):

        This bag replaces a Lowepro slingbag and I find it to be more useful to me in terms of carrying capacity. The bag is comfortable, well-made, and the equipment is well protected. I mostly shoot landscapes and use a tripod so quick access to my equipment is not a requirement for me. As one reviewer correctly noted, "This is NOT the pack you want if you want to have access to all your photo gear while wearing it - a sling bag will work better for that…"
        It's good to have the versatility to carry your tripod on either on the side or right in the middle of the pack; in addition, you could carry a hydration bag and/or two bottles of water--this is a plus, if like me, you like to shoot in the desert.

        The only slightly negative thing is that the zipper in the top compartment/storage pocket is not very smooth during closing and opening due to the rather tight rounded corners, but this is a very minor drawback. Also, it would be nice to have an additional pocket on the outside with easy access for storing cleaning supplies, etc.

        Overall, I strongly recommend this bag.

          I received the Clik Elite Pro Express backpack a few weeks ago with the plans to use this to carry my photo gear while exploring the rain forrest of St. Lucia and Puerto Rico in the Caribbean. This bag happened to be the perfect size in that it is big enough to hold all of my gear that I travel with (Canon 5d Mark iii, 24-105L, flash, 70-300, filters, spare memory and batteries as well as a small tripod) and still be small enough to carry on a plan without the worry of it having to be checked as it can be stored under the seat. As far as performance goes this bag great. It is comfortable the materials feel very sturdy the main compartment is well protected and the zippers are very durable. Overall I am very happy with this purchase and would do it again in a heartbeat.

            I keep inside my D7000 body, with 18-50mm f/2.8, 50-150mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.8, Nikon SB-600 flash, two prosumer camcorders, camcorder mic & XLR adapter, and all the power cords and everything fits confortably. Bag holds more than I thought and got pretty heavy when full, but ergonimics of the bag are so solid you don't notice it. This is my second Clik Elite bag (have a smaller one I use for skiing) and I love their products. Great build construction and very practical design. Great job Clik!

            Used my new backpack on a trip to Santa Fe and Taos area last week. Holds camera, lenses, monopod/tripod and everything else I needed on photo hikes. Also holds a laptop for airline carry-on travel. Very comfortable for the several hours I wore it. This is NOT the pack you want if you want to have access to all your photo gear while wearing it - a sling bag will work better for that - but for its intended purpose this is a fine product and I recommend it highly.

                Used to carry 5DMKII with grip and 3-4 lens. Great bag with a comfortable fit. Protective of equipment. Top compartment (memory and such) is a little snug. Can attach extra storage for lenses on waist belt. Good balance on back and easy to carry. Good price as well.

                Comments about Clik Elite Pro Express Backpack (Gray):

                I was able to use the backpack for what I bought it for this weekend and it passed my tests. I intend to use the bag only for transporting/storing gear, not necessarily for carrying everything with me when I'm shooting. That being said, I carried it 3 miles this weekend and it was more comfortable than I expected.

                Pros:
                The main compartment holds a lot of gear. My longest lens is a 105mm and most of my lenses are small, manual focus Nikkors. I was able to fit a D40 with 24/2.8, D80 with 55/3.5 Micro, FE with 50/1.8E, another FE, 50/1.8 AI, 105/2.5, 28-105 Vivitar, a set of extension tubes, SB-24, Rolleiflex 2.8, and Luna Pro SBC into the main compartment. In between the dividers I fit flash gels and cheap wireless triggers.
                The top pocket hold memory cards, IR remote, lens cloth, spare batteries, cable release, and extra lens caps.
                The laptop pocket fits my 15" Thinkpad easily.
                The other large pockets holds chargers, film, Rocket Blower, notebook, and still has room as well.
                My old, small aluminum Gitzo fits either in the side pockets or the drop down tripod holder. I prefer it in the side pockets because I don't have to take the tripod off to open the pack that way.
                The waist belt and shoulder straps are nice. They're both padded and the belt transfer weight well. It works as well at the belt on most of my hiking packs.

                Cons:
                I wish there were another small pocket or two. Clik Elite sacrificed small organizer pockets so you can fold the top over and lay things on it on location, which is a feature I like. But the front zip pocket where I keep film and chargers can be difficult to find what you want. That's the only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars.

                Overall I'm really happy with this pack. It fits a ton of gear, carries it comfortably, and still fits carry-on size requirements. If they found somewhere to add a couple of small pockets for stashing chargers and cords it would be ideal for me.

                Comments about Clik Elite Pro Express Backpack (Gray):

                I just got back from a week-long photo workshop in Hawaii which I use this bag to test it out.

                Pro:
                1. It has two vertical big zipper pockets in the front, one for laptop, and one for a jacket, sunglasses, manuals, snacks, first aid, etc.
                2. The gear compartment is roomy if use a regular divider found from other Lowepro bags to save space (Cradled Lens Dividers ")(" take too much space).
                3. There is a mesh side pocket on both sides that are big enough to put a Lowepro folding filter wallet.
                4. The adjustable harness works pretty good. It sits on my waist comfortably. However, I think the waist belt adjustable part is too long for small female (I am 5'6"/130lb) but maybe too short for big guys.
                5. It will stand still on a flat ground.
                6. The size is good for carry-on.

                Con:
                1. It's hard to use the Hydration compartment. I have a hard time to insert an empty 3L Bladder into the compartment, and there wasn't enough room if I really want to fill 3L water.
                2. The top storage pocket (the lid) only useful on the side that has a zipper/mesh pocket. I wish the other side were also a zipper/mesh pocket because it can store more items than what it designs for.
                3. I would like to have some detachable side pods on outside for other attachments (memory card pouch, accessory pouch, filter, etc). They have some on the shoulder straps and the waist belt but the slot size is not big enough to insert the belt slot from Lowepro pouch (only big enough to use Carabiners).
