The Vanguard VEO Range T 45M Tactical Backpack is designed to offer photographers looking to carry a DSLR/mirrorless camera, 4-5 lenses, a 13 inch laptop and a tripod the maximum of versatility with a customisable interior and exterior webbing.
The interior is 280 × 130 × 450mm which will allow you to fit a DSLR/mirrorless camera, up to 5 lenses (up to 200mm f/2.8), a flash unit, a 13 inch laptop, and multiple accessories such as memory cards, cables, batteries and a charger. There is also a removable daypack section at the top of the backpack for personal items or additional camera kit. Alternatively, simply remove the interior dividers and you have a comfortable, every day or hiking backpack.
In addition to the versatile interior, the exterior has multiple webbing straps on the front and sides that can be used to attach other accessories. For example, you can attach the tripod foot pocket that comes as standard and, when used with the upper straps provided, which allows you to carry a tripod on the side, or on the front for better balance. This backpack also comes with a detachable bottle holder that can be attached to the webbing when needed for longer trips.
There are also multiple pockets for SD cards, cables and other accessories you may need for your shoot. This includes a pocket on each waist trap that keeps essentials close to hand, be it snacks or spare SD cards or camera batteries.
Full access to your camera and lenses is from the rear for maximum security on the go. Fully opened, this allows you to tailor the interior to your needs. For fast access to your camera on the go, it comes set up for quick side access. You can also remove the daypack compartment and setup the backpack for top front access.
This backpack features chunky, textured zips that make them easy to grip and open, even in cold and wet conditions, or while wearing gloves.
Despite the versatility, with external dimensions of just 300 × 190 × 490mm and weighing 1.9kg, this backpack is suitable for use as hand luggage in almost every airline, but we still recommend you check Skyscanner for the latest information to make sure this bag classes as hand luggage in your preferred airline(s) as rules and regulations can change without warning.
The backpack also features a padded and comfortable shoulder harness system with adjustable x-chest strap, top straps to pull the top in tight and a padded waist belt, and the padded back includes an airflow system. This allows you to carry your kit in comfort over extended periods, across the toughest terrain.
To protect your valuable kit from the lumps and bumps of real life, this backpack is well padded, with a reinforced base. To protect your kit from the damp it is manufactured with water resistant material, but also includes a seam sealed rain cover.
