MindShift Gear FirstLight 35L+ Camera Backpack Summary

A removable floating top pocket fits a large jacket or other gear, while expert bag manufacturers MindShift Gear has redesigned organisation pockets to organise smaller accessories and travel essentials.

MindShift Gear FirstLight 35L+ Camera Backpack in More Detail

Thoughtfully designed features

The exterior of the camera pack features a tripod mounting system, for attachment of a standard sized tripod on the back or sides. There are two large water bottle or accessory pockets on both sides, with drains and a cinch cord for security. The bottom panel of the bag also features ballistic nylon for extra durability on rough surfaces.

Think Tank includes grab handles on three sides, which make it easy to hoist into an overhead bin, car, or your car boot when in a hurry. What’s more, the backpack features side compression straps with locking SR buckles for additional lash points. This ensures you can cinch the bag tight in order for your camera equipment to be securely stowed and provides carry-on compliance with numerous airlines.
