The lightweight and comfortable hiking photo backpack, K5v2 80L, is a large and versatile pack with adequate space and organization for weeklong trips. It enables you to keep hiking while the pack is on your back and the camera pod is at the front, should you need to snap a quick photo. Some outdoor photographers just use it for weight balancing. This adventure pack was created around a removable camera compartment concept to give you the option of using it for photography, or as a regular hiking pack.
When used with the removable camera pod:
The K5 v2 has a dedicated camera pod compartment inside the main body of the hiking pack. When the pod is pulled out, it can be fixed on the shoulder harness and serves as a convenient chest pocket. The camera pod can also be used separately as a small camera backpack, while you leave the 80L hiking pack at the campsite. The removable camera pod fits up to a pro DSLR camera, such as the Nikon D5 or Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, with up to Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II size lens attached, or loose Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II, plus 3-4 additional lenses, a flash and portable media device.
When used without the camera pod:
The dedicated camera compartment can be used as an internal organizer: either with the internal organizer in place (the pack volume is then divided into separate compartments, so that you can organize your items efficiently), or with it folded against the back panel, making a large compartment that is ideal for classic pack organization.
Intended for trekking, hiking and camping, this adventure backpack provides excellent transport for your gear and comfort, even when fully loaded. It features an adjustable torso, ergonomic shoulder straps and a ventilated back support system. In fact, it’s the ideal professional pack for the outdoor photographer.
