The blue sapphire Traveler Shoulder Bag from Clik Elite is well-named. It's designed for the on-the-go person who needs a durable shoulder pack that can hold a decent-sized load in an organized and secure manner. The Traveler, at less than a pound, offers you the opportunity to get out the door with your DSLR, iPad, book, documents and even some extra gear.
It doesn't look like your everyday camera bag but it will hold your DSLR with a couple of lenses as well as a small flash. Not only will it hold your shooting gear but there's a nifty little storage pocket in its outer flap that will hold your iPad. As a "wow" feature, that outer flap seals automatically when you're on the fly since it snaps shut with a magnetic closure. Outside the outer flap is a zippered pocket that can hold, perhaps, a book or your travel documents, maps or even your resume. Beneath the outer flap is another small zippered pocket that will hold your small point-shoot camera. You never know when that "grab shot" will appear and this media pocket is readily accessible for that moment.
Inside the Traveler are modular dividers that can be configured to suit your equipment load. The camera compartment is padded and equipment friendly to the finish of your gear. There's a comfortable and adjustable shoulder strap as well as a handy top carry handle. The whole bag is made from rugged ballistic nylon which offers excellent protection from the elements. The Traveler is a medium-priced bag that should be considered by anyone who doesn't want a traditional shooting bag but who needs a lightweight and durable bag for short distance travel with a minimum of equipment.
