This bag is by far my favorite piece of gear at the moment. I had been eyeing it for months and when it went on sale I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to purchase it. I honestly did not expect it to be as high quality as it is, but the second I opened up the box and had a look I was highly impressed. I’m not sure if I’ll ever trust another backpack brand. The bag itself is very stylish, and when you pair that with military grade fabric and watertight zippers…I mean what more could a photographer ask for?
Amazing bag, has gotten me through a big trip of rain and mud. Durable and will fit everything you need to bring on your next adventure. Also amazing customer service, I feel good supporting this company!
Saw this bag and really liked the overall look of it. Finally decided to pull the trigger and purchase and I’m not disappointed. I wanted a bag that I could open the top and pull out my camera, even with a longer lens attached - and the top of this bag is VERY large! The side pockets are very big, great for a an XL water bottle or stripping in a tripod. The front is great for a small point-and-shoot or batteries, etc. The camera section is nice and deep and I can put my lenses straight in vs. laying them on their sides, which provides much more space for all my gear. Very nice quality, also - and looks just as good in person as it does in the photograph. The leather accents are a nice touch.
What's the difference between the Globetrotter XC and the standard Globetrotter?
The Alpha Globetrotter XC is an updated version of the original Alpha Globetrotter. The XC version features an improved, more comfortable, more breathable back panel, overall lighter weight construction and a zip away internal divider - unzipping the internal divider opens up the full interior of the bag allowing you to use this Alpha Globetrotter XC as a spacious every-day backpack.
Can I remove the padded dividers and use this as a normal backpack?
You sure can. The padded dividers are held in place with velcro and can be pulled out, also the internal divder between the main section of the bag and the top section can be unzipped fully opening the internals of the bag. With the padded divders removed and the internal divider zipped away you can use this as a normal backpack.
Is this bag waterproof?
The bags are made from a water resistant, TPU-coated canvas material, with waterproof YKK zippers. If the bag is closed up all the way, your gear will stay dry in rain and snow!
Does this bag fit the new MacBook Pro?
Yes, the bag can accommodate laptops up to 16" in size including the Apple MacBook Pro.
Can I remove the sternum straps?
While the sternum straps can be adjusted, they are secured to the shoulder straps. If you would like to remove these, this would call for cutting them off from the bag itself.
How do I attach a tripod?
There are two hanging straps with anti-slip clips underneath the bag to secure a tripod. This version of the Alpha Globetrotter XC features straps with quick release buckles allowing you to access and reattach your tripod more quickly.
Will the bottom compartment fit a drone?
Yes, the customizable insert can be modified to accommodate a small to medium size drone.
