    Clik Elite CE401GR Reviews

    Medium Nature Backpack (Gray) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice pack, but too big for me. After much internet research I was sure that this was what I needed. I had no opportunity to see this pack first hand before purchasing. When it arrived I realized that it was much bigger and heavier than I expected... ordered the Clik Elite Probody Sport. It is perfect for my needs. I have a Canon Rebel 2ti, a 15x85, 70x 200 F4 IS zoom and a 50mm lens in the lower compartment. It all fits fine and leaves me some room for a few items in the upper compartment. The Probody Sport carries very nicely with a load. The camera section in the Medium Nature is also not as easy to access as the Probody Sport pack. The quality of construction in both packs is excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome carry for active photographers I specialize in photographing remote areas and action sports. Most camera backpacks are fine for holding the gear, but they carry like doodoo. Not so with this pack, because it transfers load to the hipbelt well, sits very stable even when scrambling and skiing and - here's the clincher - the SLR chest pack buckles onto the harness and belt with four quick-release fittings that hold it rock solid. You can ski moguls, or jump down off ledges, without it wiggling around, interfering with your breathing, or hitting you in the chin like most chest packs. There's plenty of room for a body, three lenses up to 70-210 f2.8, and a flash - which is about all most pros carry at a time. The upper compartment holds extra clothes and food for a long day, even in winter, and you can easily strap a tripod on the side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nearly Perfect I picked up this bag for a weekend camping trip and this was one of the few in my price range that also offered a place to carry other gear than camera equipment. From what I used the pack for, it was perfect. The zippers and compartments were nicely sized and offered me plenty of versatility. The bladder compartment was a bit small for my 100oz bladder but the bag was only designed to hold a 70oz one. The camera compartment had a good amount of room to hold my d2x 24-70, 50 1.8, 70-200, and a SB600. Also had room left over for another lens if I wanted. Overall, great bag for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag I picked up this bag to carry my slr body and 3 lens. I still have room for an additional body and a flash. The compartments are adjustable so you can keep all your gear padded and sturdy inside the bag. In addition to space, the bag is very comfortable. I've been taking it on my road bike, and I plan to take out on the mountain bike. I'm very excited for the winter to take out while snowboarding. The only slight downfall of the bag is that I wish it had a little more space for my personal gear. Unfortunately the compartment is not big enough for a lap top. Plan on using it for a place to keep a change of clothes, snacks, a book, and camel back. Overall I love the pack and plan to invest in more Clik Elite gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Of The Best I think this is a very good backpack, in fact it's my favorite item to carry all my stuff in. I have used Crumpler backpacks,Tamrac's, and Domke shoulder bags (which hurt my shoulders) and they all cannot compare to this click elite. In the modular bottom compartment, it easily holds my Pentax k-x with kit lens attached, my Olympus e-620 +35mm f3.5 and my Sony a500 with a Sony 70-200 f2.8 G. For the amount of stuff this thing can hold it sure doesn't look like a huge backpack from the exterior. Most of the zippers on the bag have some type of rubber sealing to keep moisture out. It even comes with a removable rain cover that is located at the bottom of the bag. The top compartment is roomy. Great for putting food, extra cloths, books.. It has a water bladder compartment also but if not in use, you can fold that compartment with its Velcro strap to get more room out of it. It's a great concept to have camera gear and extras in different locations. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how modular the outside of the backpack is. Everything is adjustable. The waist harness is very comfortable and removable. It really does its job when you carry several pounds of equipment and not even feel it. The shoulder harness is impressive. It has a ladder system where you can actually lower or raise the whole shoulder harness to suit your individual height. With all this flexibility I would think it would be flimsy, but it's not, everything is very well thought out to insure that the adjustable sections are as strong as if they were stitched to the bag. It does not have easy access to your gear since you have to take off the backpack to get to all your stuff, but don't let that change your decision. Side access backpacks are more prone to flexing. I wouldn't worry about thinking that people can easily open the back zipper. It's a tough zipper to open, besides it has a piece of rubber next to the zipper so you can thread the zipper through. It is after all a nature pack. They sell this particular pack in tan/grey or black. I went with the tan/grey since it's a nice blended color. Overall great bag when on the move.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Just came back from Peru. I had this bag with me all the time. Excellent bag, very comfortable. The bag is a bit heavy...but that's a small price to pay for the quality. I had my D300S with a 24-70 lens attached, a 10-24 lens, SB900, 50mm 1.4 lens in it. The top compartment had food, rain gear, and everything else I need. Mostly food for my 6 year old son. I did not use the hydration feature at all. Just carried a bottle of water. Now..I just need to figure out how to fit a 70-200 lens in there with my other stuff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hiking pack! This is primarily a hiking backpack that can safely transport my photo equipment. It is a heavy, well constructed, well thought out bag that will serve all of your hiking needs while also safely transporting your photo gear. The gear compartment is more than large enough for any gear that you would want to carry when going out on a long hike. My D80 with 18-200mm fits in the main camera compartment with the lens hood on. There is ample room for extra lenses, flash or another camera body. This compartment is well padded and has removable dividers allowing you to customize it for your specific needs. There is a separate zippered compartment for smaller items as well. I found that most of the time I don't need all the room that is dedicated to photo gear because I rarely bring more than an extra lens and a tripod or monopod (strapped to the side of the bag). As a result, I use the photo gear compartment for my hiking essentials like first aid kit, compass, headlight etc., and as safe storage for my phone and GPS unit. This means I can dedicate the top compartment to the stuff I need to access while on the trail such as clothing and food. I can easily access rain gear or a snack without having to dig around for it and risk getting rain, mud or snow on my photo gear. This is a very solidly built bag. The zippers are heavy duty and they have a dual flap system that seems pretty effective at keeping the water from getting through. I've been out in the rain for hours and no water has gotten into the pack. It comes with a rain cover, but I have not yet felt the need to use it. The part of the pack that rests against your back is well padded, adding comfort and helping to keep the pack stiff . The negative side of the solid materials and padding is that the bag is a little heavy. The ladder system to adjust the shoulder strap height took a couple of tries before I got it to the most comfortable height for my body. But, in experimenting with it, you appreciate what a difference it makes to have the weight of the pack properly distributed on your back. The padded waist strap also helps with the weight distribution. One thing to be aware of though is that I have to cinch the waist strap as tight as it will go in order for it to be snug. I'm not a small man (5'11, 180 lbs.) but if I were any smaller, I wouldn't be able to get a snug fit. Larger people will have no problem and the extra strapping comes with a built in velcro system to keep things tidy. There are also numerous loops, buckles and straps, some of which are intended for the Clik accessories, so you are able to add gear to the outside of the pack. Overall, I am very satisfied with this pack because of its build quality, comfort and well thought out design. It is exactly what I need for day hikes. The only negatives I can warn you about are the waist strap issue and the fact that it is not a light bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Backpack! I mainly use this as daypack for hikes and so far I did get what I paid for: A pack that would protect my camera and gear but would make it also possible to take it with me everywhere I go. The accessibility is great: I can get to my camera without taking of the waist belt. The same applies for the memory/small gear pocket. I really like that they both have waterproof zippers that close tight. I use the tripod holder for my old Velbon tripod (heavy and VERY sturdy) and it holds the tripod in place very well. The raincover is great protection against the weather and won't let anything through. The personal gear compartment could be bigger and should hold a 100 oz bladder rather than just 70 oz but other than that it is great! Also it takes a little bit until you adjusted all the belts and straps to you back but once you did you want to never take the backpack of again!
