  • 1Description

Store, protect, and transport a pro DSLR, 600 f/4 lens, or a select 800mm f/5.6 lens and related accessories with the dark gray Alta Sky 66 Camera Backpack from Vanguard. Inside the backpack is a padded sleeve for an up to 9" laptop or tablet. This pack features interior and exterior pockets, and large water bottle side pockets. Locating gear in low light is easier thanks to the bright yellow interior lining and padded, touch-fastening cradle.

Use the exterior straps to attach a tripod or other item. Carry the pack by the top handle and strap, or wear with the padded shoulder harness and chest connector. For added comfort, reduced fatigue, and improved stability, the pack has a generously padded waist belt with quick release buckle. The thick air mesh back panel helps cushion impact and increases cooling airflow. A total-coverage rain cover is included.

An adjustable, thick, sturdy, and well-padded cradle supports the camera body from bellow and secures the large lens in position, while making sure it is well protected all around the delicate connection point.

    Vanguard ALTA SKY 66 reviews

    Alta Sky 66 Camera Backpack (Dark Gray) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Designed and stylish but... I really liked the overall Alta Sky 66 design and think it would work Great for many people and for a variety of applications, though it had some limitations for me which lead me to return it. Pros: It has good strap system for adjustments and attaching tripod and monopod to back or side. I loved the orange interior which made it easy to find things in the dark. It has better styling than the LowePro 600 AW and is less intimidating in it’s appearance. The water bottle pocket and accessory pockets were appreciated. It physically fits a Canon 1 series camera and 600mm f/4 and holds it snugly. I was able to store the 2x teleconverter in a small padded bag inside the main lens compartment also. Attaching both a monopod and large RRS Tripp’s was easy and secure. The Cons: It’s harness system is not suited to people that are as tall as I am (6’1”). I could not adjust the shoulder harness tall enough to get the hip belts on my hips. It would only go around my stomach, which is a very uncomfortable way to carry a 600mm f/4 lens and associated gear. The hip belt looked great but did not provide the support that is required for a lens, camera and large tripod’s weight. It was uncomfortable carrying that load on my large frame. Conclusion I would recommend this pack only for people 5’10” and shorter probably. I suspect the carrying issues would be manageable below that height. I ended up choosing the LowePro 600 AW instead because it accommodates my tall frame and has a more substantial hip belt that distributes the weight well. It does not have quite the same strap and tripod versatility but it is comfortable to carry long distances.
