I purchased this item in preparation for a trip out west to Teton/Gallatin/Yellowstone and Banff/Jasper Alberta,Canada.

I have a camera backpack now...a Naneu Pro. It fits all my gear; Nikon D80 50mm 1.8,18-200vr,SB600 flash, Markins Q3 ballhead, IPad, an HD Camcorder,Garmin GPS for rental car and all associated chargers and cords. A full load! Now I want to be able to carry all my stuff and have room for hydration/food and clothing as there are dramatic temperature changes from day to night where I am going.

I ordered this pack because it fits airline carry on size requirements and seemed sturdy and well suited for my specific needs.

I tested this out in a recent short trip to Memphis. I thought this short trip would be a good test for out west.

I am very happy with this pack. It fits all of my gear with room to spare and it seems the padding and protection is good. I am renting a Nikon 70-200mm for my western trip and will have room for it.

With all of the items in, it weighed about 25lbs. This pack is very comfortable. The waist band buckles and adjusts so most of the pack's weight falls on your hips. The shoulders and chest straps also adjust to customize your load for your body and what you carry.

Getting to your gear does require you to remove the pack or have a friend access from the rear. The zippered upper compartment was spacious enough to accomodate my IPad, a pair of sneakers and a rain shell and had room for more.

A small zippered compartment on top of the pack could be used for a cell phone or in my case I used this space for additonal batteries, change and memory cards. I would like to see a dedicated spot for those.

One of the best features is the pouch that extends from the bottom of the pack. It allows me to take my Feisol tripod securely stored to the pack.

3 hours on Mud Island in Memphis with this pack in 100 degree heat was a lot better than I expected. The packs back pad is ventilated and didn't leave me with an overly sweaty shirt! (It was 106 so there was some sweat) The pack was comfortable and I didn't seem too sore the next day!

I also wore this on a smaller tour bus and was able to maneuver around without killing anyone or annoying other tourists.

The only thing that I would say bothered me during that time is the long excess strap webbing. When all of the straps were adjusted, there was a lot of excess. I am going to have them cut and sewed to suit me.

I bought the Venture to be my go-to bag for day hikes and days at the climbing crag. Unfortunately I'm returning it, as the bag misses on a couple of key points for me.

First, though, I will say that this is a quality bag, very well made with sturdy materials. It has plenty of room for additional gear beyond your camera equipment. This is certainly not a "do not buy" review. I'm just highlighting the negatives for me.

For any day pack, one absolute essential is that the bag is water-bladder compatible. On paper, I really liked the Venture's external bladder sleeve. Contrary to a few reviews I read, the sleeve easily accepts a completely full 3L bladder (mine is a Deuter brand). The problem, however, is that this changes the contour of the bag against your back. The back pad takes on a cylindrical bulge, and no longer sits comfortably. I can also imagine it would get annoying as you consume water that you would need to adjust the straps for the changing fit of the bag. This alone was a product-killer for me.

The second negative for me was the quality of the camera container. While it would probably protect your gear decently, this portion didn't seem to get the same care in construction as the rest of the bag. The dividers are some sort of flimsy thick plastic that were already bent from the bag sitting in a warehouse stack (I think they're a little too tall for the depth of the container). None of the cloth covering was adhered to the core, so as you pull the velcro off to rearrange, you are constantly stretching the cloth and have to pull much more than should be required.

There's one undocumented little feature that I love and want to highlight: the security tabs on each zipper. They are semi-stretchy tabs with small holes through which you can feed the zipper pulls. (See the attached photo.) While this doesn't make the most sense for a hiking pack, this is a fantastic feature for a city-wear camera bag that makes it much harder for would-be thieves to open your bag.

One minor note regarding the marketing photos that show a climbing helmet in the external elastic mesh pocket (not on B&H): they must have found the smallest helmet on earth for that photo, because mine will not even come close to fitting in that pocket. I can get about 1/3 of the helmet in, and it just pops out as soon as I let go.

Comments about Venture 35 Backpack (24 x 12.2 x 8.6", Gray):

This pack fulfills my wish for a pack that carries camera gear safely including pro body with 70-200 2.8 lens attached AND day hiking gear. It is a bit large but I considered several others and none would hold my pro gear. I will use it for day hikes and travel. It is very well made. So far, I haven't tried it with the hydration bag inserted.
I would wish for small pockets to hold cards, batteries, cell phone or small camera, accessible without removing the pack and will look for some accessory type pockets that I can use with it.

    Perfect size for vacation travel as it packs a full compliment of camera equipment. In my case a Nikon D750 w/24-120, 16-35, and with a slight modification to the removable separator a 200-500 with hood. Also a flash, filters and such. The result is not light but ready form most situations. The upper compartment still has room for jacket, change of clothes, book etc... A computer fits in the top compartment but there is no specific sleeve. I have not yet tried to use the camel back sleeve. The pack seems very adjustable, in fact once adjusted to fit me 5'-10" there is a significant amount of strap left over, enough that I want to cut them shorter.

    Great pack well made, very many usefull features, I also bought the 30 which I found to be more than good enough and able to cary all my needs ,had to remember the bigger the pack the heavier it will end up being, the 30 filled to capacity with multiple cameras and lenses other equipt and water for a decent hike will push 40 -50 lbs, almost more than my back can handle on a long hike, yea I know you don t have to fill it up ,but generally if you can carry more stuff you probably will; both are great.Kept the 30 sent the 35 back

    Well thought out design. Able to put d SLR and several larger lenses in the bottom half. The lens pockets are well cushioned and easy to slip lenses in and out. The pack needs to be played down to access the lower camera pouch.
    Pack is well balanced and easy to adjust. There are multiple ways to attach a tripod- clever design and it works well.
    The top compartments are large enough for personal gear- rain coat and things or more camera gear. The pack has integral rain cover- as part of the design rather than something other packs are as an extra part.
    Great pack for off road, trail, and where you need to carry much.
    The only negatives are it is, like many other bags, it is heavy and not for conditions where you need to quickly change lenses.

        My first Clik product was a Clik Elite Telephoto SLR Chest Carrier (12.6 x 7.5 x 6", Gray. It made carrying my Nikon D810 with 70 - 200 2.8 lens a breeze. But I wanted to add another lens or two and possibly another camera when hiking on a photoshot. The Venture 35 Backpack is perfect for the job. And the Chest Carrier can attach to the backpack making it possible to carry two cameras with telephoto lenses as well as several more lenses. Plus I can add many other useful items. The pack wears well. I got a chance to test it last week and I can tell you, I am very pleased with my purchase.

          Comments about Venture 35 Backpack (24 x 12.2 x 8.6", Black):

          I, like most photographers, have probably owned 15 different bags, trying to find the perfect mix of features to fit my style. I've been wanting snag that fit a decent amount of gear, had ample space for hiking gear/layers, supported a hydration bladder, and had an adjustable torso. This one finally met all of those requirements. The pack has a hard plastic sleeve which supports its shape, and the adjustable straps allow it to fit just about anyone. I love my Lowepro flipside, but it is far to short to fit like a standard hiking pack. I fit a 7D with 17-50 attached, 11-16 UW, 70-200 f/4 L is, 430 flash, two triggers, 4x6 filter case, Lee holder, 4circular filters in plastic cases, jet blower, all with a little room to spare; and that was just in the bottom compartment. Batteries, memory cards, ext hardrive, ect fit in top space. The top main section carried puffy jacket, hat, gloves, fleece, with a little room to spare. The only downside to the pack is that I do wish camera gear was accessed from the back like the flipside, but it does not hinder shooting.; you just have remove tripod to get to your gear, but the tripod carry is excellent and easy to remove/load. Extremely pleased with this bag.

          Comments about Venture 35 Backpack (24 x 12.2 x 8.6", Gray):

          I bought this pack after a lot of research. I needed to replace a much smaller Lowepro bag as my principle day hiking pack. This is a pretty unique category within the market, which means there aren't a ton of choices. Generally you want a camera compartment totally separate from a similarly sized spot for other kinds of gear. This pack meets that requirement. You need something with an excellent suspension system when you are carrying 20 pounds of gear 5+ miles and 3,000+ feet elevation away from where you parked. This pack meets that requirement. You need gear which is well and ruggedly made and will protect everything you are carrying when weather whips up. This pack meets that need. Finally, you need a pack with intelligently designed features. This pack is mostly there.

          The reason why I've given the Venture 35 4 stars (I would have preferred 4.5) is because of a couple of design features and the price. First, the pack really should have some tie off straps on the bottom so that you can attach something down there. I prefer rolling up a rain jacket and attaching it externally instead of inside the pack. Second, it would be nice if there was a way to get into the camera compartment without taking the tripod off and taking the pack completely off that would be great. Third, it is very difficult to get a hydration reservoir in when both it and the pack are already filled. I even went with the bladder from the same manufacturer and still had a very difficult time. Finally, this pack is over priced. The plain fact is, with little competition, they manufacturer can get away with charging a lot for it. Hopefully this will change, but don't let that dissuade you from getting it if you need it.

          Backpack is great for keeping all your clothes and camera gear in one pack for a 3-4 day vacation. Any longer and the 35L storage is not enough.

          The padding around the camera is a bit thin, and the compartment overall is very deep. Those without a ton of camera gear will find themselves stuffing the area with other stuff so that your gear doesn't shift around.

          I adapted the configuration to make it easier to pull out my camera while moving by supplementing the padding with some foam. Overall I think Lowepro's padding is superior to Clik.

          However, I did make it work and it is supremely comfortable while carrying load.

          Comments about Venture 35 Backpack (24 x 12.2 x 8.6", Black):

          This is exactly what I needed: a day hiker with a safe way to transport my DSLR, lenses, odds and ends and tripod. I have a 36" tripod. The first thing I noticed was how rugged the pack is. Everything seems of high quality and well-engineered. Of course, this means the pack weighs nearly 4 pounds empty, but the hip pads and chest strap take the weight off my shoulders and onto my hips.

          To access equipment, the back needs to be taken off, laid down and unzipped. This is fine with me.

          There's room for a lunch and some extra gear like first aid kit, water bladder, and jacket.

          I have two quibbles with this pack. I'm 6' 4" and it was not designed for someone of my height. As a result, it moves around on my back when I'm climbing. The other quibble is that the strap that hold the tripod effectively prevents it from falling off the pack, but does not prevent movement, so when the pack is moving around, the tripod movement is exaggerated. I solved this with a small bungee.

            I bought the Venture to be my go-to bag for day hikes and days at the climbing crag. Unfortunately I'm returning it, as the bag misses on a couple of key points for me.

              Comments about Venture 35 Backpack (24 x 12.2 x 8.6", Black):

              Purchased the backpack for a hike in the Smokey Mountains to remote primitive cabins. Specifically selected the backpack knowing we would be hiking in wet rainforest like conditions, wanted protection for my 5D Mark II and associated gear. Also wanted a backpack with adequate storage for our everyday photo hiking use.

              The backpack has good space in the general storage area. It is easily adjusted for proper fit and comfortable carry.

              The camera storage area is not as large as I expected or judged based on the literature. I cannot carry all the camera gear I expected. Modifying the partitions in camera storage area is somewhat difficult due to the access opening size and location. The partitions themselves limit how you can reconfigure the camera area. My regular camera backpack (Lowepro Flipside 300) carries my gear in a better orientation and more securely.

              We hiked, in the Smokeys for 5 hrs in hard rain before we reached a dry location where I could check the gear. Found that the secured rainfly had trapped water and the inside of the bag was wet with a small pool of water on the base of the bag where the back of the camera sat, rendering the camera wet and unusable for the trip. Disappointed to say the least & hard lesson learned. The adventure backpack is not bullet proof as your led to believe from the literature. I should have been smarter and used dry bags for added protection. We purchased two of these backpacks for the trip. One 30 and one 35 two cameras got wet. A third set of camera gear survived the trip in a Clik Elite Obuscura (which is unfortunately no longer sold). The rainfly performed better and the camera is held in better higher position in the camera area of the bag keeping it away from any water that might enter from the base of the rainfly.

              Looking for better options to the backpacks we just purchase.

              There is enough space for Eos5mk3 with 24-105 attached & 100-400mm in oem case on one side & speedlite,etc on the other.This is on bottom section only.top will eat knee length G-tex rainwear & sleeved down vest & still have room for some more.Accessories go in the provided other (2x>) other pockets.H20 & Cliff bars to the mesh pockets. Back pack straps adj. for height , as is sternum strap.Rain cover is sew in as are tripod "straps" which also funct. as compression straps on top.Camera bot. section could us more padding.For the money its mostly there.Not a 5 cause its not my old Badlands pack of many miles & years. Hopefully it can grow with use to a 5.Nice Western covert and blend color.Its theoretically small enough for a carry on...just barely they said ,as do some users.

              The videos on the site are very useful in the decision making process. I use this for canyoning and trail hikes. Some repelling.

                    It's not a perfect photo backpack. If you want one for storing your gear, forget this one. But if you want to be able to bring your gear on hiking, climbing, short travels etc this one is perfect.

                    By the first glance it might be a bit large. But when you're out on a photo shoot out in the wilderness - or hiking you understand that his is what you have missed.

                    You have your gear secured and safe on your back, ant the backpack securly protect it through rough terrain and difficult climbes.

                    Unlike a smaller one you also can bring much more clothing etc.

                    I love it.

                      I purchased this pack for a trip this past fall. I was headed to Antelope Canyon, Zion, Bryce, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. In Antelope I used a Clik Elite Escape, however in the remaining destinations I knew I need something to carry both camera gear and everything in between. So in those places I carried a D700 with grip, L-bracket, and 24-70 attached, a 70-200, 16-35, D7000, batteries for both, cable release, a bunch of Singh-Ray filters(both slide and screw-on), hotshot level, cleaning clothes, food, extra clothing, maps, water bladder. I almost over loaded this pack. The Bottom portion containing the camera section is deep, you can pack a lot of stuff if done right. I felt my gear was protected, the harness was great, the tripod strap could be a bit higher to prevent it from swaying, still 5-star from me.
