The SKYBORNE 48 is a thrill-loving backpack that offers a new physical take on what cloud storage and protection is. Vanguards design team have created a new standard in protection and lightweight carrying, with air-infused cushioning in key areas around gear and in the backpack and harness interface. The result is reliable gear protection, like never before, and the most remarkably feather lightness! The large main compartment opens fully to reveal numerous modular dividers for easy set-up of a professional gear kit which consists of a Pro DSLR with attached lens (up to 70-200mm f/2.8), 3-4 lenses, a flash and a multitude of accessories. Quick-action side access allows you to reach either your working camera or your key lens in split seconds, it all depends on your set-up and workflow preferences. Zippered pockets, on both sides of this side opening flap, help keep your hands free by providing immediate media card and lens cap stowaway. A dedicated rear compartment protects up to a 14 wide screen laptop and a side slip-in pocket expands to fit a water bottle. Our signature optimal balance tripod carrying system secures your tripod perfectly in the center using the docking pocket and strap. The SKYBORNE 48 also enjoys other encompassing protection features, which include our second-to-none quality, materials and bag construction, grab-and-go sturdy carrying handle, anti-shock elevation feet, and our total coverage rain cover. In this backpack we set the bar for comfortable carrying at a new high. The ergonomic system features a well-padded breathable back, uniquely shaped easy to adjust shoulder straps, sternum strap and waist belt, all coupled with our revolutionary air infusion technology and joined together to promise you a never-tire user experience!
