Vanguard Alta Sky 53 Reviews

Disappointed as well  . . .

I should have paid more attention to the strap location and main opening; the straps significantly limit access. The top load is fine, but those of us who protect our gear and normally remove all lenses prior to storing, this has only limited usefulness. I've never returned an item to B&H (it isn't really their fault). This product does not meet expectations nor its advertising.

Not What I Expected

The bag is well built and I'm sure for some it would be a great bag. What I did not like is that the main opening, in the back where the shoulder straps are, does not stay fully open without the bottom of the bag pushing up. It's as iff the zippers should have been made to go further down creating a better flap with less tension. Also, for as big as this bag is on the outside, there really isn't much room on the inside. Like I said, some people will probably really like this bag, for me it needs some improvement to justify the price tag.

Spacious but lacks pouches-Not great for smaller lens

Pros : # Hefty Beast. # Great padding & Build quality. # Holds bigger lenses (600mm range) that you know of. # Has provision to carry phantom drones. Cons : # Doen't have enough pouches to store batteries & other accessories. Outer pouches on side doesnt protrude, which makes it unusable after placing the lenses. # smaller accessories doesn't stay in the desired section. # Designed exclusively for bigger lenses and boxy 1DX type cameras. # Bag as such weighs heavy. # Feels uneasy to access the gear from rear due to thick laptop padding.

Okay for carry-on?
Asked by: Michael
I have travelled with it to Costa Rica and within the United States and no has even questioned it being too big. It is still smaller than the roller board bags. An amazing bag!
