The bag is easily fixed to any tripod. You may keep the legs retracted during your long walks, or simply keep them extended. Keep your instrument mounted on the tripod, or safely store it. In any way, from the second you slip the bag from your back, you are instantly ready to start shooting or observing!
The large back panel and straps are padded and feature a ventilated mesh. The bottom of the waterproof Viato bag is also strongly padded, protecting fragile gear such as lenses, cameras and binoculars. But there may be no need to ever put this backpack on the ground. Mounted inside the tripod, it brings you a table-like platform to work on. Magnets will keep the hatches of the backpack open, allowing you to switch lenses, put down a notebook or take a bottle of water without ever having to kneel down or put your gear on wet grass, dusty soil or sand.
The backpack will also act as a weight that will enhance the stability of your tripod. The bag and its zippers are fully waterproof, on top of that the Viato features a retractable raincover for the instrument mounted on the tripod.
