Lowepro Orion Trekker II Camera Pack
Lowepro Orion Trekker II Camera Pack – Camera bag meets day pack.
Being a avid photographer and outdoor enthusiast, I have always been a fan of the camera bags that were more than just camera bags. Backpack camera bags have been around for a while, but the hybrid daypack camera bag has only been around for a few years. Since they hit the market, they have been increasingly popular with travelers and outdoorsy type people. They allow you plenty of room to keep your SLR, but also provide room for non-camera related gear. The Lowepro Orion Trekker II Camera Pack is one such camera bag.
One reason the Lowepro Orion Trekker II Camera Pack is a great choice for those who enjoy the outdoors is because it is made with a water resistant fabric. The outside of the Lowepro Orion Trekker II Camera Pack is made from water resistant nylon. This helps to keep your investment protected from those sudden showers and unexpected accidents. There is also plenty inside the pact to keep your camera protected. The camera section of the bag is lined with soft brushed tricot and full of padded dividers.
The larger compartment of the Lowepro Orion Trekker II Camera Pack offers a nice amount of room for your site seeing gear. While there’s not enough room for everything you would need on a day hike, there is plenty of room for gear needed on a day touring the city and its sites. There is ample room for books, maps, hats, snacks, and other related items.
