Until Burton came along with its Zoom 26L Backpack, you would have been forced to clumsily rig other camera bags to work for snowboard treks. The Zoom backpack simplifies things by offering storage and protection for the gear, as well as board carry straps for when you're hiking to the perfect shooting spot. You can customize the internal padded compartment to fit your particular gear, and access it quickly thanks to the large, fully zippered opening on the back panel that essentially opens up the entire back of the pack. The cushy ergonomic shoulder straps and padded waist strap allow you to carry the backpack comfortably while super tough ripstop Cordura nylon fabric and protective tarpaulin stand up to tree snags or less than graceful downward slides. With pockets or straps to carry beverages, a shovel, heaters, tripod, film, cords, batteries, and whatever small accessories you might need to bring along, you can easily organize and access essentials.
