Comments about Clik Elite Clik Elite Pro Express Compact BackPack with Fully Padded Camera Bay, Mesh Side Pocket, Black:
Currently own two Lowepro Sling Bags and a Tenba shoulder bag for transportating my Nikon camera gear. The Tenba Shoulder bag affords great proctection on a plane including my laptop. But shoulder bags fully loaded are not practical for a day of activity. The smaller of the Lowepro sling bags is adequate for carrying portion of my gear but does not include my laptop which means another ece of baggage when flying. The larger of the sling bags carries all gear and laptop but carrying a fully loaded slingbag for hours on a hike in the heat can leave you fatigued. Clik Elite Pro Express looks like a solution to my problem so far in that it carries all my camera gear, plus my laptop on a plane. The backpack configuration seems like it would be less fatiguing than the sling bag or the shoulder bag for long hikes. Pro Express is smaller than most back packs in size and weight, adequate protection (less padding than Tenba) and the ability to adjust straps, waist belt etc seems like it will result in a positive experience in the field. Clik Elite Pro Express is carrying, Nikon D-80 and D-300 camera bodies plus Nikon flash and 105 F2.8 macro lens, 12-24 DX F-4, 300mm F4, and a Nikon F4.5 70-300 zoom along with a 1.7 telextender and my 13 inch Dell laptop. Bag is heavy but over all I suspect this will be a more comfortable setup for day long activity. Bag easily fits in over head compartments on planes. Heading west to Zion and Bryce Canyon will update upon return but so far so good!!!
