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 Pro Express Backpack (Gray):

      As can be expected from Clik Elite, this bag is is rock solid. I don't know any camera bag company that makes more rugged, dialed bags. The Pro Express holds my 2 SLR bodies, 5 lenses including a telephoto, a flash and radio transmitter, batteries, chargers, filters, CF cards, a 17" laptop, large tablet, and still has some room to spare. My only wish for this bag is that it had some extra compartments on the inside lid of the main compartment. There isn't ample divided space for small odds and ends that you need, besides on the top lid of the bag. Other than that this bag is incredible and I'd recommend anything from Clik.

          Comments about Pro Express Backpack (Gray):

          I've now had this bag for about 3 months and I'm very pleased. Highly configurable with all the right pockets exactly where they need to be. I use this bag as my primary DSLR backpack and tend to pack it chock full. Whether hiking to a location, running around in my truck or slinging this around a ball park, it's equally at home. The lighter color is a cool alternative look that doesn't scream "lots of lenses" LOL... I'd buy again in a heartbeat and recommend without hesitation. Great job Clik Elite! For reference, my typical load consists of: pro body (dslr) with battery grip with 70-200 2.8 attached, about 3-4 additional lenses, speedlight, extra battery packs for dslr and speedlight, set of Pocket Wizards, monopod with ball head, 14" laptop, accessory pouches, cables and a handful of PowerBars.

          So far I really like this bag. It is not so big that it looks huge but yet holds all my gear. I have a Sony a77ii, a Tamron 18-300, a Sigma 10-20, and my Sony 70-400. There is still room to spare. Quality and materials appear good. A great deal of thought went into the design of this bag.
          I really have no negatives to report.

          Having just bought a large zoom, I needed more room than my other cases had. I did not really want the backback kind and am considering removing the straps. However this backpack is heavy, well padded and holds my camera/with lens plus two other lenses (one is the big zoom) , flash, and other small accesories inside the main compartment. I have yet to use the numerous other compartments. Compared with my other cases, this one is really designed to protect your gear.

          This is a very well made bag with lots of room and plenty of pockets and storage areas for all your accessories. I have a Manfrotto 055 3 piece tripod which is rather large vs some smaller tripods but the drop out compartment for the legs is really nice for larger tripods. Comfortable on back and when packed with lots of gear it can fit snugly against your body for great comfort. Very good value at the price.

          Everything I wanted it a bag carry on size with sleeve to fit on a trolley to roll through airport. Holds my tripod with two bodies flash etc. my one negative is that is not enough pouch to organize small items (filters, cleaning gear etc)

            Comments about Pro Express Backpack (Gray):

            So I have been looking for a while for a well designed day pack with a water bag spot, I finally found one. I love taking my shooting gear on longer hikes but had always had the issue of how to carry water. I really like my camal bag and have for a few years taken an old backpack and incorporated it in a half hearted way. Finding this bag just eliminated the half hearted way and now I have a well designed, padded, and seperate water proof way to carry everything. Thnak you!

            I have my 60D with a grip attached and my Canon 24-105 attached, 2 radian TL devices and accessories, a go pro and accessories a sigma 11-16, canon 100-300 lens all inside the main pack. Plus a few other things like flashlights and difusion in the other pouch, a 3 liter water bag, and my tripod strapped to the middle of the back. I can carry a lot in this bag. At least everything I would need on a day hike for sure.

            The design is well thought out. The padded hip belt and shoulder straps are a nice touch. I like the feel of it on my back. The venting for my back is nice as well. I just really like how this bag fits me. It fits my back like the size of a standard 15 inch laptop backpack but with so much more. And the defined side walls of sourse helps to carry everything. You can tell a lot of time and thought went into the design of this bag.

            Perfect Size

            from Philadelphia

            Comments about Pro Express Backpack (Gray):

            Spent weeks looking on line for a backpack that could hold my limited amount of gear but could also small enough to be a carry on bag for travel and that was not black, that was the hardest part of my search.

            I have a Pentax K-50 with a 18-55mm,50-200mm and a Sigma 150-500mm lenses and carry a MeFoto RoadTrip Tripod kit. The bag fits everything I need and has room left over for some more gear in the future.

            The bag is comfortable to wear and it seems to be well made, only time will tell. The zippers are tuff but hopefully they just need to be broken in. Like others have said the water bladder area is not big enough to use, wasn't a big deal to me.

            So far I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend this bag for others.

            Decent Camera Backpack

            By Dopetastic-Pix

            from Danville, CA

            Comments about Pro Express Backpack (Black):

            I ordered this as a replacement for another backpack that I had outgrown. The trouble I have finding the right size with ample storage has always been a difficult compromise. This is the situation here. After transferring all my gear, it seems to be filled already. I do like some of thee added features not available on my last bag like the space for a hydration pack. The accessory pocket on top could have been larger but the two front sleeve pockets seem much bigger than I expected. If most of your camera accessories are flat then this is the right bag for you. I've had to store Speedlites, filters and battery charger in slots that were designed for lenses. I wish I had addition space for my 70-300mm f/4-5.6L but I'll just manage with my external lens case. I'm sure I can rearrange equipment to carry only what I require for a specific shoot whether local or distant. If in doubt, I'd recommend the larger Pro Elite or get a waist or accessory pack if needed. Otherwise, this is a nice quality backpack.

            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...

              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.

              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.

              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.

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!!

                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.

                      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!
