Whether you're hiking on country hills or urban valleys and everywhere in between, the khaki Havana 41 Backpack from Vanguard will hold and protect your DSLR camera with attached lens, 1-2 extra lenses, flash unit, accessories, tripod, and a 13" laptop. The bag features three zippered compartments – a top front compartment compartment for personal items such as clothing, books, and snacks, a top front compartment for your laptop, and a lower front compartment for storing the removable photo insert or additional personal items.

The front of the zippered lower compartment folds down to facilitate access to the photo insert. The insert is held in place with touch-fastening fabric and features both a zippered lid and a top handle. Simply remove the insert to free up space for everyday excursions which don't involve photography.

The top front of the backpack features a zippered pocket for storing small items such as a map, brochure, or coins. Below this pocket is a larger zippered pocket with a key lanyard, removable rain cover, and room for a cellphone, wallet, and other small items. On the right side of the backpack is an exterior, slip-in pocket with a drawstring for a water bottle. The left side of the backpack features an identical pocket for holding a tripod or monopod bottom.

The Havana 41 can be carried by its top handle or adjustable, padded shoulder harness. A center chest strap connects the shoulder harness straps for improved stability. The back of the backpack is padded for comfort and support. And for improved interior visibility when locating gear in low light, the inside of the backpack is made of light gray 150D polyester and velvet.

Can this double as a a commuter bag also? If inserts are removed, is there space for a standard 3-ring binder or similarly sized books?
Asked by: Kenton
I don't think it is quite big enough for books or a loose leaf binder. I would recommend looking at the next size up and can be viewed by clicking the link below; https://bhpho.to/2CFrtAI

question

In the camera compartment, does this fit a canon 5d mk3 with sigma art 50mm lens attached?
Asked by: Tilden-Christen M.
First-I love these bags; I have 3 different models. The inserts, I don't like. I throw them away and purchase replacements from Amazon. For the small backpack, I purchased the S-Zone insert, about 10 1/2 x 6 x 4 3/4.I can get much more stuff in it. You need to cut the gussets that keep the flap from opening fully. With this insert, the gear loads from the front, not the top.

Is this water resistant or does it have a rain cover?
Asked by: Anonymous
It does have a rain cover, but have never used it. The water runs off so it repels water to an extent. Never had itin heavy rain.BTW - love the bag for it's size and handy pockets.
