St. George, UT, January 6, 2010 – Being an adventure photographer means being on the move so Clik Elite’s new Explorer Series protects fragile, expensive camera gear from the rigors of travel. Three packs – the Traveler, the Impulse, and the JetPack – are sleek on the outside and built to handle traveling by plane, train, or automobile, bus, or burro.
JETPACK: The JetPack (MSRP $185) is sophisticated, functional, and ready for the daily commute or overnight to London. Holds the camera, laptop, clothes, and toothbrush. Carries as a pack or slings over the shoulder – comfortably – for less impact on those mad dashes to the gate. What makes it Clik?
- Customizable, removable camera capsule fits a compact SLR, extra lens and flash. Pops out and zips closed for stand-alone portability.
- An internal computer sleeve accommodates most 17” laptops.
- Front organizer and internal mesh pockets hold those little, random items.
- Mesh side pocket keeps water bottle and other items – random or not – handy.
TRAVELER: From the outside, the Traveler (MSRP $80) is a simple, streamlined shoulder bag. Inside it is all Clik Elite – minimum bulk, maximum protection. Departure gate to the rental counter, it gets the gear where it’s going – intact and ready to shoot.
- The secure, padded camera bay holds a compact DSLR, extra lens, and flash.
- Modular organization for custom set-ups.
- Organizer pockets hold accessories, boarding passes, and magazines.
- Zippered media pocket up front holds a point-and-shoot or iPhone – or Droid or Nexus – whichever.
IMPULSE SLING: The Impulse (MSRP $125) is a sleek, compact, sling bag that Impulse carries and protects a lot of gear in a streamlined package – great when photographers crawl out of the backcountry and find adventure in the park or on simpler travels.
- The 300 cubic-inch customizable camera bay is padded and secure to protect a pro-body SLR, extra lens, and flash.
- The large – 450 cubic inch – top compartment holds personal essentials.
- Weatherproof zippers help keep out the elements that wreck expensive gear.
