Sakshi Parikh discovers the comforts of using the new Vanguard Up-Rise II 49.

Travelling light is every photographer’s dilemma. We love to carry our gear, but at the same time, the weight of the bag is troublesome. The new lightweight Vanguard Up-Rise II 49 backpack offers a solution to this problem by offering optimal weight distribution. This adds to the convenience of carrying a camera bag for a longer duration without any difficulty.

The Up-Rise II 49 has a large padded interior and is well organised. It can easily fit a large professional kit, which consists of a DSLR with an attached telephoto lens, an additional body, up to seven lenses, two flash units and several other accessories. The bag also has a separate dedicated rear laptop space that can fit a 15-inch laptop. It is durable and has a water resistant material along the bottom. The ergonomics include Air system back and a harness for comfortable carriage. It also has full rain coverage, a tripod carrying system on the side and a double buckle safety mechanism.

The aspect of security is questionable as the bag has only one multipurpose pocket in front with no safety lock on the zipper. The absence of the Quick-Access element is a hindrance for photographers who love to capture every single moment. However, the Up-Rise II 49 is a good choice for those who love to shoot indoors in a controlled environment like a studio.
