Whether you're hiking on country hills or urban valleys and everywhere in between, the khaki Havana 48 Backpack from Vanguard will hold and protect your DSLR camera with attached lens, 2-3 extra lenses, flash unit, accessories, tripod, and a 15" laptop. The bag features three zippered compartments – a top front compartment compartment for personal items such as clothing, books, and snacks, a side 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 48 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.

Does the backpack stay upright when you set it down?
Asked by: Don
It does not have a hard square bottom. So the best answer is it depends on what is loaded on and in the bottom compartment. My backpack does not stand up because of how it is loaded. Nonetheless, it is my favorite camera equipment backpack.

question

When padded camera bag is removed does all the stuff in the top compartment fall to the bottom??? Or is there a sewn in bottom to the top compartment that keeps the two compartments separated???
Asked by: Tami C.
There is a Velcro flap that separates the two compartments. I put the flap down on a recent trip to Europe. that allowed for more storage on the top section. I carried my D500 with a 16 to 80mm Lens, extra batteries, battery charger, two filters, and a few smaller items. I carried a water bottle, raincoat, IPad, charging cables, sweater and a food bag on the top. I slid the backpack under the seat on the flights going and coming. The pack was comfortable the whole trip. I have used it several times since that trip as well.
