The Clik Elite Classic Line
Classic features include felt-lined shoulder straps, leather accessory braze-ons, metal closures, vintage woven labels and rustic charcoal nylon packcloth. Each feature serves a purpose, and together they work to create a retro outdoor mojo that gives the packs a distinctly downtown vintage flair.
And each pack is built to perform for photographers on the go. Innovative padded bays protect lenses, flashes, extra lenses and expensive SLR cameras. Accessory pockets organize the little things, keeping them right at hand. Clever access portals let you access your camera without breaking stride so you never miss the shot.
The Classic Line launches this spring with three pieces – two daypacks and a streamlined shoulder bag:
The Klettern ($185) – The klettersack is a classic Tyrolean workhorse, and Clik™ utilizes this proven design to create a performance pack with traditional style. Outside, the Klettern has old-school features, including felt-lined shoulder straps and leather reinforcements. Inside it’s all Clik™. The lid’s padded camera bay is easily accessible and securely carries a standard DSLR camera. Organizer pockets hold essentials – cables, memory cards, filters – and your laptop is protected in the quilted computer sleeve. An ingenious hidden pouch pulls out to cradle your tripod, and a tuck-away rainfly protects from the elements.
Matterhorn to Manhattan, the Klettern is great way to carry your photography equipment and traveling gear.
The Tropfen ($139) – This streamlined teardrop pack is a retro classic. Built for shorter day trips, the Tropfen’s dedicated camera bay securely carries and protects a standard SLR, medium zoom lens and external flash. A clever portal on the back panel provides quick and easy access, the padded sleeve stows an iPad®, and your tripod rides in the tip-out carry loop. Organizer pockets keep essentials in order and right at hand, and there’s a stowable rainfly for added weather protection.
Trail or travel, the Tropfen’s ready to go anywhere, anytime.
The Schulter ($59) – This comfortable shoulder bag combines classic looks and quality with advanced features for serious photographers on the go. The Schulter carries and safeguards an SLR, extra lens and external flash. Accessory pockets organize the little things – smartphone, cords and cables, keys – and an internal sleeve secures an iPad®. It carries comfortably with its adjustable, felt-cushioned shoulder strap.
This is a great photographer’s travel bag, perfect for quick trips or as a day tote for longer travels.
