STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?

Why does the ELEV 5800' open in the front?

We understand that a rear opening bag allows you to keep the backpanel from touching the ground, however there are major tradeoffs.

One of the largest tradeoffs you give up with a rear-opening backpack is comfort.

Unlike any camera bag on the market, the ELEV 5800' features a suspension system that is only found in top-of-the-line hiking bags allowing your new backpack to make 40 pounds of gear feel like your only carrying 20 pounds by transferring the weight off your shoulders and onto the strongest part of your body, your hips. This suspension system is designed with rods and other rigid lightweight material, which prevents the bag from opening in the rear.

With rear-opening backpacks you will also experience lumps created in the backpanel from your gear. This will cause you discomfort as your cameras and lenses poke your spinal cord causing you short-term discomfort, and potentially long-term spinal cord issues.

To mitigate the only drawback of your backpanel getting dirty, the material is designed to help dirt not stick allowing the backpanel to stay clean while you access your gear.

Is there also room for non-photographic gear?

As shows above, definitely. Above the main camera compartment there is an expandable pocket that is designed to carry non-photographic gear such as food, clothing, sleeping bags, and any other gear you need. You can also carry additional camera gear up to a professional camera with L bracket attached to a 300mm f/2.8.

In the lid of the pack there are two additional pockets as well. The first one is a waterproof pocket for your water bladder and the other pocket above this one can fit snacks, batteries, pens, business cards, keys, wallet, cell phones, and more.

Can the ELEV 5800' fit my laptop?

The ELEV 5800' was designed to be a modular pack that you can customize to your needs. Because most photographers only carry a laptop when they travel, and not in the field, a built-in laptop compartment becomes dead space limiting the amount of critical interior storage space you need. The laptop holster, sold separately, gives you unmatched flexibility allowing you to carry your laptop when you need it while having the extra storage space when you don't.

Can I carry the ELEV 5800' onto the airplane

Yes, the ELEV 5800' fits even stringent airline carryon restrictions. Plus, the minimalistic design of your new bag doesn't look like a cube allowing you to blend in with other hiking bags reducing your chance of being required to weigh your bag. However, if you do have to weigh your bag in places like Africa, Alaska, and Europe the ELEV 5800' is the lightest bag in its class.
