This black Lowepro Pro Trekker BP 550 AW II Backpack is a rugged bag with a floating lid that features a large stash pocket for enhanced capacity and is designed to comfortably and securely carry your mobile photo studio while meeting the carry-on requirements for most international or US airlines. Its spacious main compartment features an adjustable partition system with 11 dividers that can fit a DSLR camera with a 400mm f/2.8 lens, a 300mm f/2.8 lens, two additional lenses, and a two shoe mount flashes. Alternatively, the main compartment can be configured for a mirrorless camera with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, four additional lenses, and two shoe mount flashes. To enhance the ability to organize this backpack's contents, a Lowepro Gear Box equipment pouch is included. Cords, adapters, and other essentials for the devices carried by the Pro Trekker BP 550 AW II can be inserted within the Gear Box, keeping them organized within the partition system or under the floating lid. This large-capacity Lowepro Gear Box can instead be used to accommodate a folding drone kit.
Complete access to the backpack's main compartment is provided by a front-facing zippered panel with a 180° downward opening. Along the inside of the front panel that faces the main compartment are three zippered organizer pockets for portable batteries, memory cards, hard drives, or other small electronics. The outside of the front panel also unzips to reveal a pocket for a 15" laptop. Positioned above the backpack's base, the laptop pocket helps minimize the effect of any bumps or shocks.
On the outside of the front panel dual compression straps with convenient side-release buckles allow a tripod, monopod, trekking pole, or folded apparel to be fastened against the Pro Trekker BP 550 AW II, which also includes a stow-away cup to support the base of the tripod or monopod strapped along the front of the backpack. While both sides of the Pro Trekker BP 550 AW II feature large, open side pockets, an additional pair of dual compression straps allow the pocket along the wearer's left to also accommodate a tripod, monopod, or trekking pole. Under the right side pocket, a zippered hydration pack compartment contains an exit for a sip tube behind the wearer's shoulder.
The Pro Trekker BP 550 AW II can be carried using its built-in haul handle or by its adjustable shoulder straps which can hold a camera, keeping it within easy reach. When traveling over difficult or uneven terrain, the backpack's waist belt transfers weight to the hips for additional comfort, while a built-in sternum strap buckles the shoulder straps together, further limiting unintentional shifting around the wearer. Zippered pockets along both sides of the backpack's waist belt provide secure on-the-go storage, and to help ensure that the Pro Trekker BP 550 AW II meets the carry-on requirements for most international and US airlines, the waist belt is detachable, as well as the floating lid which includes its own shoulder strap for use as a sling bag.
Featuring durable polyester and nylon construction, the Pro Trekker BP 550 AW II is built to be weather resistant and includes a seam-sealed cover for use under heavy rain. When the rain cover is not in use, attachment webbings along the Pro Trekker BP 550 AW II's sides and on the face of its front panel allow for pouches that use the Lowepro SlipLock Attachment System to connect to the backpack's surface.
