The ALTA SKY 45D is a dynamic backpack that sets a new standard for adaptable carrying and working solutions. It offers versatility combined with reliable gear protection, like never before! Featuring innovative 1/3-2/3 division the larger compartment can be fully accessed from the rear, quickly reached from the side or separately opened from the top, while the smaller compartment enjoys quick individual opening from the bottom front.
The multitude of dividers and access points leave you the choice of just how much professional gear and how much personal gear to carry. Match your workflow preferences by hierarchal set-up and utilization of the multi-access points. Maximum capacity can fit up to a Pro DSLR with attached lens (up to 70-200mm f/2.8), 2-3 lenses, a flash, and accessories in the top 2/3 compartment and a CSC (Compact System Camera) with an additional lens in the bottom 1/3 compartment. If carrying less gear one can easily turn this backpack into a daypack or hiking backpack, deciding which separate access point is for photo gear and which is for personal or hiking gear.
Secure rear compartment protects up to a 13" laptop and can also fit a tablet in the additional padded sleeve (*note that double usage is only possible for some laptop + tablet combinations). Organize all other gear and personal essentials such as memory cards, cables, batteries, charger and smartphone, exactly where you need them; either secured in an organizer pocket, or on hand at any given moment in a slip-in pocket. Enjoy pockets with double access points from within and from without. Keep rocking with our headset port which will conveniently extend the cable from the internal smartphone pocket. Avoid human error with our simple coded "Full"/"Empty" media storage. Stay hydrated with two large side pockets for water bottles. Link, hang and sling on anything you can imagine using the multitude of straps, loops and innovative connection features integrated into the surface of the backpack.
The ALTA SKY 45D enjoys additional encompassing protection features, such as our total coverage rain cover, our second-to-none quality, materials, and bag construction, and our grab-and-go sturdy carrying handle along with extra grip handle to facilitate retrieving the backpack from the car boot or overhead bin.
Designed to carry heavy gear loads for extended periods of time, we set the bar for comfortable carrying at a new high. Our advanced ergonomic back and harness system features a well-padded breathable 3D back, uniquely shaped easily to adjust shoulder straps that perfectly contour to your back and torso, adjustable sternum strap and well-padded supporting waist belt. All these join together to promise a "never-tire" user experience!
Various advanced tripod connecting systems enable you to select the best transport solution for your tripod, lighting stands, and hiking sticks. We also offer the full ALTA EXPERIENCE with ALTA LINK, which enables you to carry along your ALTA PRO TRIPOD in the advanced ALTA ACTION TRIPOD BAG connected to your ALTA SKY BACKPACK!
