The galaxy blue with gray trim Rover Pro 35L AW Backpack from Lowepro is a bit smaller than the 45L version but remains a serious pack for the outdoor enthusiast. With its multitude of capabilities and capacity, this pack can more than get you through a day in the field or an overnight hike or climb. Its gear capacity is considerable. The Rover will hold your pro DSLR with grip and attached 24-70mm f/2.8, one extra lens or flash plus a tripod or monopod. It even has room for your sleeping pad, small tent, ice axe or trekking poles plus additional personal items.
The Rover 35L also contains a very handy removable camera case which can be extracted to provide additional storage space should you wish to use the pack for a hike and not need camera gear. The case has movable, padded dividers, a removable accessory pouch with interior and exterior zippered mesh pockets and webbed grab handles. Multiple storage options and compartments give you total freedom to store, configure and access your gear as you prefer. Your gear can be retrieved either from the top or side hatch openings. A top zippered pocket is for quick access personals and includes a key ring that will save you the trouble of searching the entire bag for a single key. A front stash pocket is large enough for your jacket or helmet.
Additional storage capabilities include tripod or monopod connections at the side of the pack. Sleeping pad straps are provided on the bottom of the pack. And, your axe or trekking poles can be lashed to the provided attachment points.
The shoulder straps are adjustable to accommodate 16-19*" torsos (measured from the C4 vertebrae to the top of the iliac crest (near the hip). A removable waist belt is thickly padded with mesh and contains two zippered pockets for small items such as lip balm or snacks. The waist belt also helps wick away moisture for added comfort. Lowepro uses their AirFlow suspension system with breathable back panel. The panel is ventilated for excellent air flow and comfort and helps with load distribution while on your hike. Compression straps allow you to alter the overall footprint of the pack depending on how much gear you wish to carry.
The Rover 35L contains Lowepro's All-weather cover that will protect the entire pack when the weather turns against you. The reflective material and removable cover protects your gear from sun, sand and dust. The pack also contains space for an optional 2 liter hydration reservoir.
The Rover 35L is made from 210D triple-ripstop nylon with PU (polyurethane) coating for improved durability. The interior fabric is 200D polyester and the zippers are both #5 and #8 YKK design.
