The pack is carried by a high-tech harness system that consists of; padded shoulder straps that cushion against heavy photo gear, with additional support from load lifter straps and adjustable sternum strap. A split-contour waist belt with a bi-directional buckle cradles and comfortably transfers weight to your hips.

    Clik Elite CE621BK Reviews

    Contrejour 35 Backpack (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack I just used this pack to travel around Europe! It's a great pack, and organizes my gear well. I fit 4 lenses, two canon mark 3 bodies and two speedlights in there along with two sets of 4 cards, batteries etc. And then had a whole other compartment for my random stuff like a jacket, and other bags etc. It's great for travel and has great comfortable straps for walking around. It's also got a secure pocket for the gear so you don't have to worry about anyone unzipping the bag and stealing your gear while you're in a big crowd.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the thing you need off road I have owned the Contrejour for a year - bought it off their home page directly (Sorry B&H) I use the Contrejour 35 for skiing (boys are racers), both training sessions and day long race days s well as normal days of skiing on and off piste. I use it for hard core hiking, both day trips and 3-4 day tourings between mountain huts in CH and AT. I use it for international travel - carry on, was only challenged once in San Francisco Airport, but got through in the end. It has lots of small zipped pockets that you can use for what ever stuff you bring with you. The padded shoulder straps are well designed, but the waist belt could be a little more padded to match the waist belt quality of real backpacks, but not a big issue. The backpack has never let me down, best photo gear pack you can get, trust me... I have tried a lot. The hydration compartment should be redesigned to include straps to hold the bladder pipe though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Photo Backpack I've had this pack for a month and waited until I took it on a couple of longer hikes before writing a review. This pack has finally met my needs of carrying all of my photo gear AND my hiking gear. There is plenty of room for both. On a recent Appalachian Trail day hike I carried a Canon 7D and 60D plus 3 lenses. With all of my gear it weighed about 25 pounds and I didn't even feel it. The waist belt carried most of the weight, and the shoulder straps are very comfortable. The top pocket is very roomy and hold extra batteries and memory cards in nice inside compartments. The only negative thing I noticed is the zippers aroung the camera gear section are very tight. It takes a lot of muscle to open/close them. I also used the Cotton Carrier Strap Shot on the left shoulder strap and it worked very well. It attaches nicely to the shoulder strap and the loop on the top of the pack. I highly recommend this pack to all active photographers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING This backpack is probably one of the best backpacks on the market. If you are hiking, biking or anything like that this is the bag for you. The trampoline system is awesome. And it is so comfortable. But most importantly it has sooooo much space. It has enough room for four lenses and a pro body with lens or three lenses and a flash and a pro body with lens attached. And also has room for jackets, water bottles, and a lot more in the main non camera compartment. Overall it is one of the best camera bags. And if you are traveling or hiking than this is the pack for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light but Sturdy I travel a lot and needed something that could hold a camera body, several lenses, and my other gear. I had another brand, but the shoulder straps were ripping out too easily. This one is reinforced so holds up to a lot of handling. It has lots of pockets and protects my camera gear well. The only drawback is that the access isn't quite as easy, but it's rugged and I would definitely recommend it. It's also very comfortable to wear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best adventure sport backpack out there! I bought this bag a couple months ago and feel that I have used it enough to give a fair review. I bought this pack specifically for a ski assignment that i was assisting with. I was following around the photographer on skis all day for week and a half, skiing some of the craziest lines in BC, and the bag stayed properly adjusted and felt comfortable the whole trip. The best thing about this bag is that it fits the body amazingly, it gave me the confidence to ski the same lines as the athletes. This bag offers superior protection to any other bag in its class that I have used without giving up a lot of weight. I have found that this bag is not limited to just ski photography, but can also be used as a hiking/trekking bag. If you are just going for a day trip and don't need to much equipment, this bag will do the job fine. the large compartment is plenty big enough for extra clothes, food, ETC... Conclusion: If you want a bag that fits the body well and gives you the ultimate protection for your hard earned gear, get this bag. Especially if your into ski/climbing photography ( i personally wouldn't consider anything else).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Product I am only giving this a four for now because I have not put the pack through it's paces. That said, initial impressions are good. Solid construction and a good size without being bulky. I had questions on the size of the storage compartment, for other than camera equipment, and there is certainly enough room for a change of clothes. The camera compartment is good size. I have three lenses, a 40D, flash and some odds and ends with plenty of room to go. This backpack will hold a lot of camera gear and a decent amount of personal stuff. A small lap-top would fit in the storage area (it is not designed for that and there is no padding for a lap top). This was a solid buy and the outdoor, non-bulky, camera backpack that I had been looking for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best designed camera pack I have used I have been a professional Landscape Nature Photographer since 1981 and have had to climb, ski, hike, snowshoe etc to get to my photo destinations. Till now, I have not found a pack thought out well to handle serious weight comfortably with easy access to my camera gear as well as ample room for my other gear such as clothing raingear hydration systems and other essential gear. I am really pleased with this system and wish I had it several years ago. Hardie Truesdale

    question

    Is this camera carry-on compatible?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Unofficially, yes. I say unofficially because although I was not asked to verify whether or not the bag would fit at check-in, it appeared that it might be too large. However, since I was not asked, I carried-on the backpack for a regional flight from Munich to Rome on an Airbus A320 and it fit in the overhead just fine. The bag was close to full with a Nikon D610 and 24-70mm lens attached, lens hood, external flash, all other basic photography accoutrement in the camera compartment and three complete outfits in the main compartment. This was the second trip that I have used the backpack and I must say, I absolutely love it and would definitely recommend it. I am not a professional photographer or traveler, more an enthusiast on both counts, but I specifically bought this pack to carry what I consider decent gear for family photos on weekend-type vacations and it has served that purpose perfectly. Hope this helps.
