Photographers who hike need a bag thats comfortable to carry, protects all their gear, and keeps everything easily accessible. The Mountainsmith Aurora II Camera Lumbar Pack takes top honors in all categories. The beauty of having your camera gear in a lumbar pack is that it can be carried securely behind you instead of swinging around on a shoulder strap. When its time to pull your camera out, just rotate the Aurora to the front and get everything ready to go without squatting on the ground or stressing about dropping your bag. The Aurora II has a zippered top and a quick-release buckle to secure your equipment, along with an organizer pocket under the lid for smaller items like extra film. Nestled in-between adjustable, padded dividers, your camera and lenses will be safe, secure, and ready to shoot at a moments notice.
