About Clik SA

"We don’t make packs for boardroom meetings or in reaction to what that month’s trend happens to be.

We solve problems we encounter as photographers; problems that our customers didn’t know they had.
We know packs.
We are photographers.
We love what we do, and we know you will too."




Based in Utah, USA’s rugged canyon country, Clik Elite was founded in 2008 by a team of outdoor industry professionals.

Clik Elite, and their design team, Elite Creators, design and manufacture a complete line of innovative performance packs for adventure photographers that are the culmination of 25 years of experience designing and building packs for adventure racers, emergency medics, outdoor extremists, and photographers.

Clik Elite products are distributed and used by photographers worldwide.


Gert Leonard, Clive Ramsbottom, Simon McDonnell & Bruce Poynton, four partners in a Medical Device Distribution business, all keen amateur photographers, jumped at the chance to distribute Clik-Elite Adventure Photographic Packs & Accessories when approached by the manufacturers, Elite Creators. The relationship with the manufacturers goes back to 2003 when the STATPACKS range of Emergency Packs for Paramedics was launched in South Africa.

The build quality, design and ruggedness of the medical bags has made the brand a firm favorite with Paramedics and Military Units throughout Southern Africa, so it stands to reason that the Clik Elite range will quickly follow suit with it's
high quality, rugged construction, designed specifically with the adventure photographer in mind.

What better place for a range of products that'll handle the knocks and keep on delivering, than the beautiful African Continent?

The formation of CLIK-ELITE SA (Pty) Ltd also sees the introduction of Nest Tripods & Ballheads into South Africa.

This high quality, yet affordable range, offers something for everyone from the professional to the 'Happy-Snapper'.
