Object of Desire: Case Logic Kontrast Pro DSLR Backpack

September 11, 2015

By Greg Scoblete

Part of Case Logic’s Kontrast collection, the Pro DSLR backpack features a hammock carrying system to keep your camera body secure from shocks and vibrations. The backpack stands upright when placed on the floor, thanks to its water-resistant, EVA-molded DuraBase platform. The Kontrast backpack can store a professional DSLR plus between four and eight additional lenses inside its roomy, lime-green interior. A wide-mouth top hatch lets you quickly pull your camera body (with lens attached) out of the bag, or you can unzip the entire pack to pick-and-choose your lenses. Thanks to its dual zippers around the main compartment, you can use luggage locks to seal the pack when it’s time to entrust your bag to the TSA. The padded shoulder straps are complemented by a padded sternum strap that keeps the pack from shifting during use while toting very heavy loads. Memory cards and small accessories are quickly accessible via a dual-access lid pocket. Beyond accommodating your camera gear, it provides room for both a 10-inch tablet and 15-inch laptop in a pair of dedicated compartments. Side stretch pockets accommodate a small tripod on one side and a water bottle on the other. 

Price: $150
