The dark olive Scope Travel 200 AW Backpack from Lowepro represents an excellent option as a perfect field pack for the wildlife enthusiast. Take it anywhere - in the field - or as a simple backpack for everyday use. However, its main purpose is as a complete travel kit for a day birding in the woods.
It's made from tough, water-resistant nylon and also comes with a built-in All-Weather cover that offers additional moisture protection to an already well-protected pack. The inside is also nylon that won't mar or scratch the surface of your gear.
The pack holds just about everything you could ask for in a birder's field pack - most compact angled spotting scopes, tripod, traditional nature binoculars (up to an 8 x 40), field guide and personal items. Your tripod attaches by using the tuck-away foot cup and straps that keep it centered on the front of the pack. For those long waits in the forest, a side mesh pocket is perfect for holding a water bottle.
Carrying the pack is a breeze. Padded, adjustable shoulder straps and backpad provide you with a way to tailor the pack to your own comfort zone. A grab handle also makes removing it from your closest or car easy. For those small accessories that you always need quick-access to, Lowepro gives you exterior SlipLock Loops for securing whatever you want. The Scope Travel 200 AW Backpack is backed by Lowepro's limited lifetime warranty.
