Expanded Vanguard Alta Sky 68 Backpack Key Features:

Maximum Comfort

The Vanguard large camera backpack is built from high-quality materials that allow you to carry your gear safely. Carrying heavier loads for extended periods is far easier with this carefully constructed ergonomic design. The back benefits from a breathable air system that keeps you cool on the go whilst the adjustable harness and shoulder straps provide a personalised fit to keep you comfortable. Both the back of the bag and the waist belt benefit from 3D padding to ensure users a ‘never-tire’ experience. And, for shorter strips, you can use the detachable shoulder strap to switch up how you carry your gear.

Flexible Storage Options

Designed to carry 8 lenses in total, this backpack features a large main compartment divided into 2 sections. The main compartment has the capacity for carrying a DSLR or a full-frame mirrorless camera with an attached lens (up to 600-800 mm). The other section can hold up to an additional 7 lenses, so you can change lenses to take advantage of different photo opportunities as they present themselves - whether it’s a spectacular landscape or a stunning macro opportunity. To unpack your gear, you can use either the full-front flap to gain access from the top or the rear compartments to access each section's lower half. The rear access also includes a sleeve to carry a 16-inch laptop so you can stay in control of all your business whilst out on the road. There are also multiple pockets for organising and safely storing other personal items such as an 11-inch tablet, cables, charger, memory cards, power bank, tripods, and even water bottles.

Keep Your Gear Protected

Vanguard keeps your gear protected with the adjustable, thick, sturdy and well-padded cradle that supports the camera body from below and secures the large lens in position. This interior compartment is a light, bright orange so you can easily identify the content of your bag even in low-light conditions. The dual tripod system also ensures your stabilisers are better protected. Vanguard has included a dedicated central pocket for tripods with secure straps to keep you balanced and prevent any unnecessary strain. This bag also comes with a total coverage rain cover to keep the bag and its contents dry in all kinds of adverse weather conditions.

The Buy Now Pay Later option comprises a 36 month loan following a six month deferral period.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
