Camera Pack
Keep valuable photo and electronic gear protected without compromising easy access. Our tester raved about the unique drawer-like opening of the camera compartment, which let him grab photo essentials even when the top of the pack was loaded with hiking gear. The well-padded camera section is roomy enough for a DSLR body, a second compact body, and up to three extra lenses, as well as filter wallets, a flash, and other accessories. The top section of the pack holds extra layers, snacks, and water. A flip-down panel allows shooters to easily secure a tripod to the pack. Padded and contoured shoulder straps and a wide hipbelt take the sting out of heavy loads–which of course are unavoidable with camera gear. To ensure sensitive electronics are kept dry, the CompuRover includes an attached stowaway raincover. Bonus: A side zipper accesses a padded laptop sleeve for computers up to 17 inches. $253; 5 lbs. 6 oz.; Reader service #118
