The ALTA SKY 66 is the ultimate gear-carrying and working backpack, specifically designed to carry a super telephoto lens up to 600mm (f/4.0) & some 800mm (f/5.6) attached to a Pro DSLR, protected in the best possible way and easy to access. Also carries a 9” tablet and offers advanced tripod connection.
The ALTA SKY 66 is a dynamic backpack designed to offer the ultimate in protection and transportation for your telephoto lens with camera attached. While carrying one of the largest photographic loads its design maintains a slim and sleek streamlined exterior.
The main compartment is designed to fit a Pro DSLR attached to a 600mm (f/4.0) lens or even some 800mm (f/5.6) lens. A full front opening flap ensures ease of set up. An adjustable thick, sturdy and well-padded cradle supports the camera body from bellow and secures the large lens in position, while making sure it is well protected all around the delicate connection point. Organize all other gear and personal essentials such as tablet, memory cards, cables, batteries, charger and smartphone, exactly where you need them; either secured in an organizer pocket, or on hand at any given moment in a slip-in pocket. Enjoy pockets with double access points from within and from without. Keep rocking with our headset port which will conveniently extend the cable from the internal smartphone pocket. Avoid human error with our simple coded ‘Full’/’Empty’ media storage. Stay hydrated with two large side pockets for water bottles. Link, hang and sling on anything you can imagine using the multitude of straps, loops and innovative connection features integrated into the surface of the backpack.
The ALTA SKY 66 enjoys additional encompassing protection features, such as our total coverage rain cover, our second-to-none quality, materials and bag construction, and our grab-and-go sturdy carrying handle that also comes in handy when retrieving the backpack from the car boot.
Designed to carry the heaviest gear loads for extended periods of time, we set the bar for comfortable carrying at a new high. Our advanced ergonomic back and harness system is fully adjustable and features a well-padded breathable 3D back, uniquely shaped easy height adjusting shoulder straps that perfectly contour to your back and torso, adjustable sternum strap and well-padded supporting waist belt. All these join together to promise a ‘never-tire’ user experience!
Advanced tripod connecting system enables you to select the best transport solution for your tripod. We also offer the full ALTA EXPERIENCE with ALTA LINK, which enables you to carry along your ALTA PRO TRIPOD in the advanced ALTA ACTION TRIPOD BAG connected to your ALTA SKY BACKPACK
