The Vanguard VEO Active Birder 56 Backpack is a chic, yet tough, 47 litre trekking backpack made to transport your spotting scope, tripod, and a tonne of other personal gear to even the most distant and challenging locations.
You may reach the rucksack through the bag's almost completely open, extended waterproof zip. Simply attach the strap on the left to prevent the bag from accidentally being fully unzipped if you only need access to the top.
The main 32 litre storage space With an elasticized loop to fit around the eyepiece, the 120 x 134mm cushioned tube in the 32 litre compartment is made to safely and securely fasten a spotting scope to the back of the bag. Additionally, it has two interior pockets for a 10" tablet and a 16" laptop (compartment measures 310 x 35 x 370mm). A zipped pouch is located above the laptop compartment, where you may store other necessities like a smartphone or a VEO PA-65 Universal Digiscope Adaptor. Any personal gear you'll need for your walk can fit in the remaining space.
With a mesh pocket and a key ring holder to help you arrange your gear, the backpack's top has a separate 15 litre section for goods you want to keep close to hand.
It has a 390 x 180 mm side pocket for a 2 litre hydration pack, so you can stay hydrated while you're out and about. This pocket's waterproof construction prevents a leak from entering your main compartment.
An elastic side pocket on the other side of the bag can accommodate a tripod or a separate water bottle.
The power bank of your choosing can be stored in the main compartment and connected to your smartphone via the USB port interface located above this to keep it charged while you're on the go. Ideal for supplying power to your gadget, such as a smartphone, while you utilise the GPS feature to aid in navigation or record memories of your trip.
A discrete zip-up pocket on the back is ideal for storing essentials like a wallet or passport.
For usage with a spotting scope, a tripod is also necessary, and two rear straps make it possible to carry a full-sized tripod centrally on the back for the best balance across extended distances. As an alternative, you may tether a tent or sleeping pad to a tripod that is attached to the side.
Due to the fact that this rucksack is intended to transport bulkier supplies over longer distances, extra care has been taken to provide optimal comfort. This incorporates a strengthened aluminium frame that stiffens the back of the backpack and is contoured to follow the curve of the upper spine. A broad air-flow system and padded shoulder and waist cushions are on the back itself. The waist belt, which helps distribute the load and can be removed or fastened around the bag when not in use to keep it from flapping on shorter excursions, is also highly padded and has an adjustable chest strap.
Each shoulder strap has an expanded elastic pocket for additional storage, and the waist belt has an expandable zip-up pocket for snacks on one side and a Velcro strap that you can use to attach your binocular pouch through the belt loop on the other. Additionally, it has a removable bottle holder and an accessory compartment for organising your gear.
The Vanguard VEO Active series is made of durable nylon 840D Cordura that is highly weather and tear resistant, has waterproof zips, and premium herringbone and double reverse stitching to withstand the rigours of the wild. The VEO Active has a rain cover for rainier days.
The VEO Active Birder is referred to as "the gift that keeps on giving" because of all its functions. So check out the VEO Active Birder if you're looking for a way to transport your spotting scope across larger distances.
