The gray Whistler Backpack 350 AW II from Lowepro is a heavy-duty bag designed to comfortably and securely carry your mobile photo studio. The spacious main compartment features an adjustable partition system that can fit a large DSLR with an attached 70-200mm lens, six additional lenses, and a shoe mount flash or an additional lens. Users of mirrorless camera systems can fit up to eight lenses along with a camera, plus a flash or an additional lens, as well as a backup camera, and for protection of foldable drones and their flight controllers, two insert pads that feature enhanced cushioning are also included.
Access to the main compartment is provided by a rear-facing zippered panel with a 180° downward opening. Along the inside of that zippered panel is a memory card pocket and two zippered, organizer pockets which can be used to hold hard drives, portable batteries, camera filters, or small electronics. Separated from the main compartment by a waterproof barrier, an expandable front pocket with a bottom drain hole allows wet outdoors equipment such as a climbing helmet, shovel, or ice pick to dry even when carried inside the Whistler Backpack 350 AW II. Integrated between the main compartment and the waterproofed front pocket is a dedicated sleeve that can accommodate a 13" laptop. The laptop sleeve can be reached through a zippered top opening with capacity for books, notepads, snow goggles, or packable clothing. Along the inside the top opening is an accessory pocket for items that need to be secured, yet accessed quickly and conveniently, such as a pair of sunglasses, snacks, or headphones.
The Whistler Backpack 350 AW II can be carried using its built-in top handle, or by its adjustable, padded shoulder straps. For heavy loads, this backpack's waist belt transfers weight to the hips for additional comfort, while the sternum strap further limits unintentional shifting around the wearer. Along each side and on the front of the Whistler Backpack 350 AW II are two side-compression straps that can each hold and secure a tripod, monopod, or trekking pole. Connected to the surface of the bag with hooks that support up to 100kg, the compression straps are suitable for skis, a snowboard, or other outdoor mountain equipment which can be harnessed and carried.
Featuring a durable nylon construction, the Whistler Backpack 350 AW II is built to be weather resistant, and includes a seam-sealed cover for use under heavy rain.
