Backpacks are superior for carrying heavy gear for long distances, but access has always been a problem. Also, traditional front-loading backpacks get wet and dirty when placed on the ground. The BackLight 18L, with a rear-panel compartment for photo gear, allows you to access your gear without taking off the backpack. You can change lenses or just snap a quick photo by simply by spinning the bag to the front of your body while the waist belt is still secured. Rear-panel access also adds security when traveling since your camera gear is protected behind your back.
Back-panel access provides access to all of your camera gear without taking the bag off, allowing you to work out of your bag without getting the harness dirty, wet, muddy or icy.
Front pockets totaling 5L of capacity allow you to carry personal gear for a days outing: extra layers, a light jacket, food, etc. - perfect for those longer shooting days out in the field! Plus, dedicated laptop and tablet compartments fit up to a 13” laptop and full-size tablet.
The MindShift Gear BackLight 18L comfortably accommodates the following:
- 2x standard DSLR bodies with lenses attached and 1–3 standard zoom lenses
- 2x Mirrorless bodies with lenses attached and 3–5 lenses
- Fits up to a 13” laptop and a 10” tablet
- Fits personal gear in the 5L front compartments
- Maximum lens size: 300mm f/2.8 or 150–600mm f/5–6.3 attached to a body
