The black Bottle Rocket Backpack from Clik Elite is lightweight and built for speed. This is pro level bag that is targeted at those who like to get off the beaten path and capture images that others might be afraid to attempt. Rated to hold your pro DSLR, 700-200m f/2.8 lens, extra lens, flash and accessories, this bag is stocked with all the elements that make it a truly serious backpack for serious shooters. Made from tough water-resistant nylon and supplied with a handy rain fly for those weather-marginal days or remote streams and rivers, the bag is also outfitted with a tripod sling that will firmly hold your "pod" centered on the back of the pack.

The back panel is contoured and designed with mesh for maximum air circulation to make those long pitches in the field more comfortable. You'll find moisture is quickly wicked for even more comfort. The top compartment has a capacity of 14 Liters (800 cubic inches). Two large zippered side pockets are slanted for ease of access and are spacious enough to hold even more gear - lightmeter, additional lens and other support material. You gain access to your gear via a zipper on the back that opens to reveal the inner guts of the bag. Other packs make you open the bag from the top forcing you to reach down inside but the Bottle Rocket understands that speed and timing are crucial when shooting in the wilds. Just unzip the pocket, retrieve your DSLR and lens, get the shot, replace the camera and move on.

Since this is a bag for intense outdoor work, Clik Elite has included two 700 ml (23.6 oz) stainless steel water bottles so you won't get thirsty on the trail.  As for your photo gear, inside the bag you'll have padded and movable dividers to sort out your equipment in their own spaces.

The Bottle Rocket is supported by two adjustable shoulder straps, waist belt and sternum strap that will help steady the bag as you make your way through the back woods. Backed by Clik Elite's lifetime warranty, the Bottle Rocket is uniquely designed for anyone who wants a large but lightweight pack with features typically not found on other backpacks.

        Just a Great day pack. It fits me well (5'11) And holds my equipment nicely. I store a Nikon D5100 with the Vello BG-N6 Battery Grip attached and it fits great into the compartment. you have enough room for your extra lenses also. What I also like was the size of the top compartment. its large enough to store extra cloths, snacks, etc. this was the one of the best selling points for me. the construction of the bag is great really well put together. carring this this bag is very confortable also if you add the hydro pack it doubles as a camel-back while keeping you back cool on the hot days, you also get two water bottles that really help on the hot days. I have been using this pack for about 2 weeks now and still like it, alot. It's that type of pack that has made me a Clik Elite customer from now on.

            The concerns about fitting larger people are accurate. If you are over 5'11" I would try something else. It depends on your torso size. I'm 6'1" with an average to slightly longer torso and the hip straps are way too high for me-even with the shoulder straps fully released. Otherwise, it's a good pack.

              Works as needed, carrys a load well and is very light and durable. I didn't see that it came with aluminum water bottles which was a pleasant suprise.

              Comments about Bottle Rocket Backpack (Gray):

              I bought this just before a recent trip to Japan, I would be doing a lot of walking and wanted something with support. As an avid hiker the build of this pack was initially attractive to me. I crammed a lot of gear into the tight spaces within the pack, it was tight but in the end fit everything I needed (and didn't need). As for comfort; I carried a heavy load (at times 2 camera bodies, three heavy lenses, and a tripod) and if I were a couple inches shorter (I'm 6'3") I think the pack would have fit perfectly and securely. Because of my height I had trouble adjusting the pack so that the weight could sit on my hips, I had to loosen the shoulder straps quite a bit which led to some discomfort. If you plan on carrying a lot of weight and are over 6' tall this may not be the pack for you, you might want something with height adjustment. that aside, great piece of gear.

              Comments about Bottle Rocket Backpack (Gray):

              I'll start by saying that this is a high quality bag right from the start. Materials are top notch. What I was looking for was a bag that could hold a D700 with grip, 70-200mm 2.8 VRII, 24-70mm, 14-24mm, SB900 and a 1.7 teleconvertor. The pics on the website show a pro-body camera with attached 70-200 and a flash and maybe a hard drive in the main compartment. what it doesn't show is with all that in the main compartment you can't fit much else in the two side pockets. The walls are soft between the outside pockets and the main compartment and when you put a lens that has a diameter of 77mm(i.e. the nikon trinity lenses) it pushes in the sides into the main compartment. While I was able the get the D700 with 70-200 attached in the main compartment with the 24-70 and 14-22 in the outside pockets it was a very tight fit. I could not easily get the camera out if I needed to take a quick shot. Also with the trinity in the bag I had no room for a flash. It would have had to go in the top compartment. I had already planned on carrying the teleconvertor on the outside so I also purchased a Clik Elite small bag attachment (which is also a great accessory.) Also this bag seems to have been made for a smaller person because the straps were just to short to effectively and comfortably carry that much weight. The weight needs to be down low on the hips so that you don't hurt your back and this caused the straps to be at they're fully extended length. I'm not tall by no means (5'10" 190lbs.) It would work better if they added a way to lengthen the straps from the top as well so that the curve of the strap would be positioned correctly on your body. Much like the old alice packs I used in the Army. Would probably fit someone 5'5" or shorter just fine. If your not carrying the pro lenses it would work great for a day hike bag. When I was researching camera bags I saw this bag and thought what a great idea having your lenses on the outside of the bag but after trying it doesn't really work out like I envisioned. Even if I already had the camera in hand and wanted to change lenses you can't comfortably swing it to your side and retrieve a lens from the side pocket. Don't get me wrong it can be done but it is just easier to put the bag on the ground and change lenses. Another "but" is if you put the bag on the ground to change lenses now the bag is laying horizontal and it's harder to get the lenses out. If you were working off of a tripod and had the bag hanging on it for support it would work flawlessly. I really wanted it to work out but with the weight of the gear and the straps being too short I had to send it back. I would have given the bag 5 stars if it had been a little better described as to what it can hold. Whether you shoot NIkon or Canon I think a lot of photographers carry a "trinity" kit with maybe another lens or accessory and I think that bag makers should design day bags with this in mind. I am totally sold on Clik gear though. I kept the small grey accessory bag and I ordered a Contrejour 40, a Clik wrist strap and the Clik seat. Should be here tomorrow. I think the larger size of the Contrejour 40 and the fact that it has a metal frame it it will make it much more comfortable to carry the weight of the gear.

                Comments about Bottle Rocket Backpack (Black):

                this backpack overall I would have to say is a 9 out of 10.

                I say this because the only bad thing about this backpack is that the main camera pocket has velcro padding which can be arranged but is a pain to adjust when in a hurry or want to rearrange...

                like i said tho this is the only problem so other than that its great... and the water bottles are nice cuz you can see inside clearly to see if they're clean.

                Thanks for this great product and I hope you buy it. its a good one for traveling, I actually have been wearing it while bike riding and its comfortable.
