The black Skyborne 53 Daypack from Vanguard will not only hold an incredible amount of photo gear but also has a separate removable sleeve to accommodate your 17" laptop. The bag is rated to literally hold an entire camera system - 1 or 2 DSLRs with grip and lens attached as well as a host of 7-9 lenses up to a 300mm f/2.8. In addition, no camera system is complete without a flash and this bag will hold two. Overall, there are front, side and back storage pockets.
The Skyborne 53 allows you to mount your tripod on the back of the bag using the built-in buckled strap and holder. Aside from the big stuff you normally carry, you'll have numerous storage compartments in which the little stuff can be stored - iPhone, batteries, memory cards, cables, pens, business cards and more. The bag has a place for everything - and everything will be in its place. For a photographer spending a day in the field or shooting a gig, this bag has it all. As an added measure of security and peace of mind, the Skyborne 53 Daypack comes with a rain cover that will guard against moisture seeping into the bag. Now, you need not worry about getting caught in an unexpected rain or snow storm. Any concerns about potential theft are addressed by the 22 anti-theft buckles that clasp over the zipper paths and prevent someone from coming up behind you, quietly unzipping the rear compartment and stealing your cameras. For ID purposes, there is a handy name card holder.
Inside, there are 11 touch fastened padded dividers that permit you to configure the bag to suit your shooting needs. They are brightly colored orange to help you see inside the bag in marginal ambient light. Vanguard has designed this bag with their air infused cushioned technology that provides an additional layer of interior protection to your gear. It's similar to a bubble-wrap approach to padding where air is placed within the inside padding to provide even more shock-absorbency for your gear. There are also numerous pockets for small accessories - filters, lens caps, memory cards and more.
The bag is carried via a comfortable and ergonomically designed shoulder harness, chest strap and removable waist belt while for those quick moments when you're just unloading it from your car, there's an easy grip dark gray hand carry strap. And, there's even a nifty trolley sleeve on the back for loading it onto your cart - just great for getting through airports and parking lots. Backed by Vanguard's limited lifetime warranty, this bag should be considered a serious contender for the photographer who needs a lightweight daypack that can handle a large load safely and securely in all kinds of weather.
