The black Travel Backpack from Peak Design
is a bag that can serve as the core of a versatile transportation
system for photographers, multimedia creators, and dedicated travelers.
Expansion zippers along its spacious main compartment allows this
backpack to increase from 30L to 45L in volume, while inside, a zippered
partition system forms an optional front and rear divider. To further
enhance the ability to organize this bag's contents, separately
available Peak Design compartments that are specifically designed to
store camera, video, audio, and digital media equipment, as well as
apparel or small electronics can be arranged within the Travel Backpack
to create a customized carrying solution that can be changed as needed.
When the Travel Backpack is worn, a sleeve with dedicated pockets for a
10" tablet computer and a 15" laptop rests behind the shoulders, within
the main compartment. A front-facing pocket is included for items that
need to be accessed quickly and conveniently, such as a pair of
sunglasses or music player earphones, while hidden side pockets can be
used to safely hold a passport, a phone, or other items that benefit
from a higher degree of security. Also along the sides of the Travel
Backpack are two large, open pockets that can each hold a water bottle,
tripod, monopod, or trekking pole; any one of which can be secured using
a locking strap above each pocket.
If placed on the ground or a
flat surface, complete access to Peak Design compartments or items
placed directly within the Travel Backpack is provided by a zippered
panel that faces the back, as well as the front panel which unzips to
also reveal four zippered mesh pockets that can be used to store and
organize batteries, memory cards, or small electronics. When partially
opened, the rear panel's zippers allow a laptop or tablet computer to be
removed from or placed within the laptop and tablet computer pockets
through the top of the Travel Backpack. The main compartment can be
reached even while carrying the Travel Backpack, through zippered side
openings which are positioned to face the wearer when the bag is rotated
from one's back to front with either side facing upward.
Travel Backpack can be carried using built-in handles along its top,
sides, or by its adjustable, shoulder straps. For heavy loads, this
bag's sternum strap can be used to more evenly distribute the weight
being carried, while a waist belt transfers weight to the hips for
additional comfort, and helps to limit unintentional shifting around the
wearer. During storage or transport, the straps and waist belt can be
tucked behind the rear panel, which also features a built-in handle that
can be used as a pass-through, allowing this bag to be mounted onto a
rolling case's dual-column telescoping handle for added convenience.
Featuring durable, nylon construction, the Travel Backpack is built to
be weather resistant and is compatible with a separately available rain
cover for further protection from the elements.
