    Lightweight Backpacks / Ultralight Platform / Exposure

    As a photographer, the Exposure is fantastic because it is a panel loader. You have immediate visual access to the contents to the bag and don’t have to dig around. - Ryan McSparran on his New Zealand thru hike

     Designed with input from backpacking photographers this panel loader backpack features the same high performance suspension used across our backpack families and with seven pockets provides easy access to all your gear.

    The rugged YKK #10 zippered main compartment is sized to fit an F-Stop case at the top for super easy access to camera gear and lenses.   The Exposure is also well suited to hunters, who want quick access to optics and strong organization, as well as backpackers and travelers who prefer a panel opening for easy organization.

    Handmade in Grand Junction, Colorado, USA.

     

    Seek Outside Backpacks all feature:

    • Seek Outside Suspension - all our backpacks use the same frame, hipbelt, & shoulder harness (save money by adding packbags down the road instead of buying a whole backpack).
    • Patent Pending Articulating Frame.  Our suspension will comfortably carry anything you can.
    • X-Pac™ Backpack Fabric - forever waterproof & durable.  No more raincovers!
    • Adjustable Frame Height - 24" -26" - 28" - Frame Extensions allow you to dial your pack height to your torso length or expected load weight.

    1. Backpacking Photographers Dream Pack

      I can't really say enough about this pack so I'll keep it pretty short. First, you do not need to be a photographer to enjoy this bag. It is super comfortable, has tons of room, myriad adjustments, and all of your gear is available instantly.

      The pack is extremely well made and light when it is empty. I weighed in at 42 pounds fully loaded and took it on a 15 mile canyon hike. It performed flawlessly. I will use this pack for years and years, and then I will probably buy another one after that. Well done Seek.

      P.S. There are so many different ways to adjust this pack to get it perfect for your torso. Watch the Youtube video that Seek made on adjusting their pack. It's worth the 10 minutes.

    2. Outstanding backpack for photography, backpacking with equipment, backpacking in general

      I purchased this backpack because I wanted a panel loader to carry photo and audio equipment in the mountains/woods. It does a great job of that. The panel loading design makes it very easy to lay the pack down and open it like a suitcase. No more digging in a narrow vertical sack.

      It also is very comfortable with heavy loads and is very adjustable. I've had at least 10 different backpacks and this is by far the most comfortable with a load.

      I've also used it for ordinary backpacking and I have come to really like the panel-loading approach. I don't know if I can go back to a traditional backpack.

      Finally, the build quality of this pack is outstanding. Extremely well-made AND it is VERY light! After backpacking for 30+ years, I would say that this is the best backpack I have ever owned. Very pleased with this purchase.

    3. Best Photographer Backpack

      I can't wait to get out in the mountains with this thing. It's so spacious and the weight sits perfectly. on 19th Jan 2016

    4. COMFORTABLE, PRACTICAL.

      I ORDERED ONE OF THESE WHEN THEY FIRST CAME OUT AND HAVE USED IT ON TWO TRIPS SO FAR; ONCE YOU GET IT ADJUSTED PROPERLY IT IS IMMENSELY COMFORTABLE. I LIKE THE NUMBER OF POCKETS AND FLEXIBILITY THAT THESE GIVE. I REALLY LIKE THE BIG OPENING PANEL, FOR PACKING AND FOR SORTING/ARRANGING/ACCESSING CONTENTS. OVERALL MY BEST BAG.
