The black 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 (Black):

      This backpack is just about perfect for day treks. The main compartment is well designed and holds a ton of gear (including a Canon 100-400L).It has two other "main compartments" that each can hold a lot of stuff. One's perfect for a laptop or tablet.The top compartment seemed useless, but it held batteries, spare SD cards, pens, wires, etc quite fine.I recently used this on a week-long trip to Argentina, and it really was quite nice.The only thing I would like to have seen is slightly thicker straps. They work quite fine, but after carrying it all day it gets a bit sore...

      Comments about Clik Elite Pro Express Backpack (Black):

      The Express pack by Click, I found to be asignificant improvement over my last backpack.For starters, adjustments on the straps are actually designed to fit someone over 6ft. This allows me to actually wear the backpack for some distances without serious discomfort. Inside the storage accomodates my pro body camera & 70X200mm lens as well several otherlenses,cleaning material, caps,extra batteries, my computer, a mouse and all the cables& chargers I need to take with me. Before I needed two packs. Plustheconstruction sure appears to be designed to stand up to the demands I will be making on this pack. I Storngly recommend this product.

        Just got my new "Pro Express Backpack by CLIK" from B and H and I Love It!! I own countless camera bags and camera backpacks but needed something with a little more kick (room) for our trip to Peru and this bag has it all!! There is nothing I could find bad about the bag, it has so many extras like the water bottle holders, the cool place to set your lens when your changing them, the rain fly, the built in SD card slots (even color coded) two different ways to carry the tripod, laptop storage area, pockets everywhere, and on and on, just click BUY and get it already, it's a serious great pack and is built to last!!

        Great Bag - Too Small for Me

        • Transporting Gear

        Comments about Clik Elite Pro Express Backpack (Black):

        This is a great bag for the price.The front pockets on this thing are giant; You could carry multiple laptops. The hour-glass shaped dividers for the main compartment are nice in that you can snugly nest lenses when the divider is concave, or you can open them up a bit and put smaller items inside.On the topic of the main compartment, I was slightly disappointed in the quality of the lining and dividers. I like the brighter liners that highly contrast the mostly black equipment so that digging for gear in low-light environments is easier. This interior is a light grey, not terrible and not a deal breaker. The dividers were fairly crushed when the bag arrived. Again, not a deal breaker, just slightly disappointing.I am 6'2" and I was able to adjust the straps so it was fairly comfortable. With that said, I don't think I would want to go out all-day with this pack fully loaded. To get the waist belt to sit on my hips, the bag and the heft hangs slightly too low off of my shoulders.I am a DSLR video shooter and I couldn't fit as much gear as I wanted/needed. But, because of the price, overall quality, and thoughtful design/features I decided to stick with the Clik brand. I exchanged for the larger Clik Elite Pro Elite.

            Comments about Clik Elite Pro Express Backpack (Black):

            In the market for a backpack that would contain photo gear and the iPad, I ordered this one because it looked like it would fit the bill. It certainly did. I fit ALL my camera gear, iPad, and had room for more. However, it was far too large for me to carry (5'4.5" and 135#), and while my husband fared better, truly using this for touring/traveling is a bit excessive as I'm not a pro. I'm in the process of exchanging it of a smaller bag.

            Good but not perfect Backpack

                Comments about Clik Elite Pro Express Backpack (Black):

                Width is slightly too narrow. Center lane can fit 70-200 2.8 with hood reversed but the hood is a very tight squeeze, and the outside lanes are squished as a result. Probably required to be narrow enough for Airline compliance.

                Padding is less than LP AW series but lighter in weight and much lower price.

                The dividers with the )( shape allows things to be stored in between, but I would have also like a few traditional dividers to put lens side by side without a spacer to squash things together.

                Fit and finish are merely OK, some waviness to the fabric portions. Better QA from the factory would be nice (made in Philippines).

                Zippers are weather resistant but not as confidence inspiring as LP AWs. The zippers are larger toothed and have bigger pulls so they look like they will last. Takes a bit of getting used to but the pull angles seem a little awkward at times as they cross angles and curves.

                The styling is very, very, very clean. For an airline traveler with an overweight and overstuffed bag this means you will likely make it with this bag as carry on.

                Harness comfort is OK. I'm not a big guy but the shoulders seem slightly too narrow for me. Non-adjustable harness width and length, but you can hide the straps to make it very streamlined.

                Detachable side pods or hideable sides would have been good, that way you can attach them once you've arrived at your destination from a flight.

                Inside of the flap is smooth and has no pockets/storage, which I found surprising. Cleaner and has less chance of damaging your gear though. Previous bags (not CE) scratched my 1D2 with a metal zipper pull for the flap storage.

                Integrates well with their chest carrier (but not their body link, go figure).

                Other than that I like this bag a lot, there are countless small details that show Clik Elite is innovative and always thinking about how to build a better backpack. 10% wider and more padding with better QA are my only real gripes.

                This was my first backpack from them but it won't be my last.
