The Pro-Light Bumblebee-220 PL is a multi-featured professional backpack designed to provide the best carrying, storage and working solutions. Lightweight and Protective it will cater to the smallest detail of a professional's working needs.
Specially formed foam encased spring steel Spine Guard runs down the front of the bag and an Aluminium Skeleton stave arcs across the mid section for ultimate structural protection. Light yet durable RipStop fabrics & meshes, Aeriform foams and Spider Webbing straps all join together to create a protective and light backpack, and the fantastic modularity allows you to make it even lighter by simply removing components that are not necessary for your everyday work.
The main compartment is designed to hold 2 to 3 DSLR camera bodies + up to 8 lenses (space for up to 500mm but with tripod mount dismantled) + flash + many other accessories. Use the modular Aeriform Dividers and Cocoon Pouches to custom fit your exact gear needs.
Access to the main compartment can be from top, bottom or any other point so if you need to get to one specific item you do not have to open the entire bag and expose its content to prying eyes.

External top pocket and two side pockets will store personal effects such as phone, wallet, travel documents etc. These can also store small accessories you need rapid access too such as media cards, batteries or filter, while a flexible pocket on the other side will easily carry a water bottle.
