Lightweight and comfortable hiking photo backpack, the K5v2 80L is a large and versatile pack with adequate space and organization for weeklong trips. The K5v2 80L enables you to keep hiking while the pack is on your back and the camera pod is at the front, should you need to snap a quick photo. Some outdoor photographers just use it for weight balancing. The K5 was created around a removable camera compartment concept to give the user the option of using it for photography, or as a regular hiking pack:
• When used with the removable camera pod:
The K5 v2 has a dedicated camera pod compartment inside the main body of the hiking pack. When the pod is pulled out it can be fixed on the shoulder harness and serves as a convenient chest pocket. Moreover, the camera pod can even be used separately as a small camera backpack, while leaving the 80L hiking pack at the campsite. The removable camera pod fits up to a pro DSLR camera, such as the Nikon D700 or Canon EOS 1D, with up to 70-200 f/2.8 lens attached plus 3-4 additional lenses, flash and portable media device.
• When used without the camera pod:
The K5 v2 dedicated camera compartment can be used as an internal organizer: either with the internal organizer in place (the pack volume is then divided into separate compartments so that the user can organize his items efficiently), or with the internal organizer folded against the back panel, making a large compartment for classic pack organization.
Intended for trekking, hiking and camping, the K5 v2 provides excellent transport for your gear and comfort even when fully loaded: it features an adjustable torso, as well as ergonomic shoulder straps and a ventilated back support system. It’s the ideal true professional pack for the outdoor photographer.
