If you love traveling and photography, I’m sure you have come to the dilemma of how much you can hike with. You want to travel light so that your outing doesn’t become hard work, yet want to be prepared to bring your creativity to life. The Vanguard Alta Rise 49 might just be the bag for the occasion.
Whether you are hiking landscapes or urbanscapes, the avid photographer will require a few tools to manipulate the scene to tell their story. At the very least, you will require a camera, 3-4 lenses, flash, tripod, laptop, water, and a snack. And if, like me, you are hoping to capture some conceptual portraiture, an outfit or two.
The Alta Rise 49 backpack with dimensions 53 x 25 x 53 cm is designed to easily hold 4 cameras and 4 lenses or 3 cameras with lenses. In the image below, the Vanguard Alta Rise 49 holds 2 cameras with battery grip and lenses attached and 2 cameras w/ lenses and w/o battery grip. If we remove battery grip, we can easily adjust two extra lenses in the bag.
There is a separate memory card holder to take care of your storage accessories.
The backpack is strategically designed with internal and external pockets to arrange all other essentials such as memory cards, cables, batteries, charger, smartphone and water bottle, exactly where one needs them – either secured in a zippered compartment or on hand at any given moment in a slip-in pocket.
It even has a good sized rain cover included in it to protect your gear from rain.
It can even carry your tripod easily in a dedicated zipped pocket. Carrying a tripod does not discomfort the user at all. The bag comes out in which you can place the legs of your tripod easily.
There is a concealed rear pocket that will secure valuables such as wallet and travel documents like passport etc.
In this zipper, you can keep your small accessories like flash, light meter etc.
The padding at the back is not premium but solves the purpose. The keep the bag lightweight, the quality padding is compromised. Although breathable back is very comfortable.
The bag can hold a 15″ mac or a 13-14.5″ regular laptop/ tablet so you can edit pics on the go.
The Vanguard Alta Rise 49 Black Backpack is available for INR9499 at Amazon.
