  • 1Description

The Adaptor 48 Backpack from Vanguard is a large backpack that can hold its share of gear. It's rated to accommodate your DSLR with up to a 70-200mm f/4 lens attached as well as an extra 5-6 lenses, flash, accessories and your tripod.

The pack is made from a combination of nylon and polyester and features a polyester and velvet interior. The soft interior will help guard your gear from scratches. A customizable interior is accomplished by the pack's movable dividers. Complete access to all your gear is from a rear, three-sided zipper. Overall thick padding helps protect your equipment from bumps and abrasions. The back of the pack is not only padded but breathable for added comfort. A separate zippered and buckled top compartment is also available for more gear or personals. Additional accessories and smaller gear can be stored in the pack's side zippered pockets. A tripod holder is included with the head of your pod held with a strap and the bottom of the feet held in a neat little pocket.

Carrying the Adaptor 48 is comfortable using its two wide, adjustable contoured backpack straps. A sternum strap is included to help you maintain balance and stability while on the move. Topping off the pack is a grab handle for easy retrieval of the Adaptor 48 from your car, luggage rack or closet. The pack comes with a limited lifetime warranty from Vanguard.

    Vanguard ADAPTOR 48 reviews

    Adaptor 48 Backpack (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from superb design with emphasis on comfort I purchased this well-designed backpack using holiday funds. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase. The Vanguard backpack represents my 2nd photo bag (the 1st as a messenger bag) from the award-winning company. For the main compartment at total capacity, I can easily carry a Canon 7D with an attached lens and 3 other lenses, such as a 10-22mm, 24-70mm L, 70-200mm L, and 100mm L macro. In addition, I still have room for a few filters, extension tubes, and other small items. The padded design supports comfort during full capacity. JOB WELL DONE!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for me My main reason for getting the back pack was equipment storage. I like a back pack instead of a bag or case so I can just throw it over my shoulder and go. Got the 48 instead of the 45 for capacity reasons. I like the side opening access and the addition of the small lap top/tablet storage of the 45, but was worried about it holding my equipment. For my needs the 48 works. It holds my Nikon D7200 with 18-14 attached as well as a Nikon 300 f/4, 100mm macro, and 11-16 wide angle as well as angle viewer, charger, filters, and other accessories. The back pack is padded well and very adaptable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag! Well made, durable and comfortable. Also purchased the 46. The 48 does not have direct side access to the inside of the backpack but holds more gear. I used the 48 when I need to carry more than will fit in the 46. Both are great backpacks and the tripod holder is a wonderful addition to both. Keeps everything in its place and easy to get to.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice medium-sized backpack Re-arranged the interior padding to hold a Canon 7D with 70-200 f/4L attached; and also a Canon Rebel xSi with 18-55 kit lens attached. Still room for a couple of other lenses, batteries, charger, etc. The side pockets are just that - pockets only, with no access to the interior. Would have liked to have a side access, but not a major inconvenience. Access is from the rear only - but opens very wide. Overall, a quality pack with good functionality, and a great price thru B&H Photo.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact & Well Made This is a perfect small well made backpack for those who are using the Micro 4/3d's system..!! its has just the right amount of storage for our filters, extra batteries, memory cards, etc. I fit my MeFOTO RoadTrip Travel Tripod inside with my Panasonic G5 & extra lenses. Works perfectly without being heavy. A rain cover would have been nice..!!
