Clik Elite 35 overview

  • 1Description

The black Venture 35 Backpack from Clik Elite is slightly larger than their Venture 30 model. For heading out on a quick photo expedition to the outback, this bag has it all. In addition to accommodating your pro DSLR, 4-5 lenses plus accessories, it has a 3 liter (100 oz) hydration bladder essential for active endeavors while even the side pockets are designed to hold water bottles. You'll never want for thirst.

The bag is made from Clik's water-resistant nylon and supplied with an easy-to-use rain fly that can be quickly set up during a sudden downpour - or even if you're crossing a stream and want to keep your gear extra dry. Most scenic photographers need a tri or mono-pod and the Venture 35 is equipped with a tip-out sling that will center your "pod" in the center of your pack. The harness system is fully adjustable and contains both waist belt and sternum strap for steadying the pack while traveling.

The interior is set up to be arranged in whatever configuration you need to safely hold your gear. Adjustable and padded dividers will create individual compartments for your DSLR and lenses. The top zippered pocket is for smaller items like cards, batteries and other personal items that need to be quickly accessed. Rugged zippers guard the front compartments and allow you to open only that part of the pack that you need to retrieve specific gear.

Clik has designed the harness system to be ergonomic and comfortable while in use. You'll be able to fine tune the pack with variable height, width and angle of the wide shoulder straps to create a perfect fit. The waist belt is also wide and connected with a bi-directional quick-release buckle that cradles your hips. There's also a sternum strap for additional security and balance.

Backed by Clik Elite's lifetime warranty, the Venture 35 is a slim, trim and rugged pack for anyone who likes to get off the beaten path to where real images are made.

    Clik Elite 35 reviews

    Venture 35 Backpack (24 x 12.2 x 8.6", Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pack but some missing features Backpack is great for keeping all your clothes and camera gear in one pack for a 3-4 day vacation. Any longer and the 35L storage is not enough. The padding around the camera is a bit thin, and the compartment overall is very deep. Those without a ton of camera gear will find themselves stuffing the area with other stuff so that your gear doesn't shift around. I adapted the configuration to make it easier to pull out my camera while moving by supplementing the padding with some foam. Overall I think Lowepro's padding is superior to Clik. However, I did make it work and it is supremely comfortable while carrying load.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is what you always have wanted It's not a perfect photo backpack. If you want one for storing your gear, forget this one. But if you want to be able to bring your gear on hiking, climbing, short travels etc this one is perfect. By the first glance it might be a bit large. But when you're out on a photo shoot out in the wilderness - or hiking you understand that his is what you have missed. You have your gear secured and safe on your back, ant the backpack securly protect it through rough terrain and difficult climbes. Unlike a smaller one you also can bring much more clothing etc. I love it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One computer sleeve short of 5 stars Perfect size for vacation travel as it packs a full compliment of camera equipment. In my case a Nikon D750 w/24-120, 16-35, and with a slight modification to the removable separator a 200-500 with hood. Also a flash, filters and such. The result is not light but ready form most situations. The upper compartment still has room for jacket, change of clothes, book etc... A computer fits in the top compartment but there is no specific sleeve. I have not yet tried to use the camel back sleeve. The pack seems very adjustable, in fact once adjusted to fit me 5'-10 there is a significant amount of strap left over, enough that I want to cut them shorter.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bag with some key problems I bought the Venture to be my go-to bag for day hikes and days at the climbing crag. Unfortunately I'm returning it, as the bag misses on a couple of key points for me. First, though, I will say that this is a quality bag, very well made with sturdy materials. It has plenty of room for additional gear beyond your camera equipment. This is certainly not a do not buy review. I'm just highlighting the negatives for me. For any day pack, one absolute essential is that the bag is water-bladder compatible. On paper, I really liked the Venture's external bladder sleeve. Contrary to a few reviews I read, the sleeve easily accepts a completely full 3L bladder (mine is a Deuter brand). The problem, however, is that this changes the contour of the bag against your back. The back pad takes on a cylindrical bulge, and no longer sits comfortably. I can also imagine it would get annoying as you consume water that you would need to adjust the straps for the changing fit of the bag. This alone was a product-killer for me. The second negative for me was the quality of the camera container. While it would probably protect your gear decently, this portion didn't seem to get the same care in construction as the rest of the bag. The dividers are some sort of flimsy thick plastic that were already bent from the bag sitting in a warehouse stack (I think they're a little too tall for the depth of the container). None of the cloth covering was adhered to the core, so as you pull the velcro off to rearrange, you are constantly stretching the cloth and have to pull much more than should be required. There's one undocumented little feature that I love and want to highlight: the security tabs on each zipper. They are semi-stretchy tabs with small holes through which you can feed the zipper pulls. (See the attached photo.) While this doesn't make the most sense for a hiking pack, this is a fantastic feature for a city-wear camera bag that makes it much harder for would-be thieves to open your bag. One minor note regarding the marketing photos that show a climbing helmet in the external elastic mesh pocket (not on B&H): they must have found the smallest helmet on earth for that photo, because mine will not even come close to fitting in that pocket. I can get about 1/3 of the helmet in, and it just pops out as soon as I let go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great pack for strong people Great pack well made, very many usefull features, I also bought the 30 which I found to be more than good enough and able to cary all my needs ,had to remember the bigger the pack the heavier it will end up being, the 30 filled to capacity with multiple cameras and lenses other equipt and water for a decent hike will push 40 -50 lbs, almost more than my back can handle on a long hike, yea I know you don t have to fill it up ,but generally if you can carry more stuff you probably will; both are great.Kept the 30 sent the 35 back

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great day/camera pack Overall I really like the pack. There is plenty of room for my camera equipment and kids stuff. The pack rides well once it is adjusted. One of the best things I like is the elastic pouches. The side ones hold water bottles or sunscreen and I don't have to pull anything to secure them. The back one holds more stuff. The only thing that I don't really like is the dividers for the camera area. They don't seem to be stiff enough for my liking. Here is what I typically carry in the camera section: Nikon D750, 70-200 f2.8, Sigma 24-35, Nikon 50 f1.4, nikon sb-600, coin filter set.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pack! I purchased this pack for a trip this past fall. I was headed to Antelope Canyon, Zion, Bryce, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. In Antelope I used a Clik Elite Escape, however in the remaining destinations I knew I need something to carry both camera gear and everything in between. So in those places I carried a D700 with grip, L-bracket, and 24-70 attached, a 70-200, 16-35, D7000, batteries for both, cable release, a bunch of Singh-Ray filters(both slide and screw-on), hotshot level, cleaning clothes, food, extra clothing, maps, water bladder. I almost over loaded this pack. The Bottom portion containing the camera section is deep, you can pack a lot of stuff if done right. I felt my gear was protected, the harness was great, the tripod strap could be a bit higher to prevent it from swaying, still 5-star from me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything but the kitchen sink! I purchased this item in preparation for a trip out west to Teton/Gallatin/Yellowstone and Banff/Jasper Alberta,Canada. I have a camera backpack now...a Naneu Pro. It fits all my gear; Nikon D80 50mm 1.8,18-200vr,SB600 flash, Markins Q3 ballhead, IPad, an HD Camcorder,Garmin GPS for rental car and all associated chargers and cords. A full load! Now I want to be able to carry all my stuff and have room for hydration/food and clothing as there are dramatic temperature changes from day to night where I am going. I ordered this pack because it fits airline carry on size requirements and seemed sturdy and well suited for my specific needs. I tested this out in a recent short trip to Memphis. I thought this short trip would be a good test for out west. I am very happy with this pack. It fits all of my gear with room to spare and it seems the padding and protection is good. I am renting a Nikon 70-200mm for my western trip and will have room for it. With all of the items in, it weighed about 25lbs. This pack is very comfortable. The waist band buckles and adjusts so most of the pack's weight falls on your hips. The shoulders and chest straps also adjust to customize your load for your body and what you carry. Getting to your gear does require you to remove the pack or have a friend access from the rear. The zippered upper compartment was spacious enough to accomodate my IPad, a pair of sneakers and a rain shell and had room for more. A small zippered compartment on top of the pack could be used for a cell phone or in my case I used this space for additonal batteries, change and memory cards. I would like to see a dedicated spot for those. One of the best features is the pouch that extends from the bottom of the pack. It allows me to take my Feisol tripod securely stored to the pack. 3 hours on Mud Island in Memphis with this pack in 100 degree heat was a lot better than I expected. The packs back pad is ventilated and didn't leave me with an overly sweaty shirt! (It was 106 so there was some sweat) The pack was comfortable and I didn't seem too sore the next day! I also wore this on a smaller tour bus and was able to maneuver around without killing anyone or annoying other tourists. The only thing that I would say bothered me during that time is the long excess strap webbing. When all of the straps were adjusted, there was a lot of excess. I am going to have them cut and sewed to suit me.
