Think Tank launches Mindshift BackLight 45L backpack
Think Tank Photo has launched the new MindShift BackLight Elite 45L backpack.
With a 45 litre capacity there's space for both camera gear and a lapop and tablet, and true to the pack's positioning as suitable for adventure photography, the exterior also includes attachment points for a variety of gear including axes, skis or a snowboard, tripod, and ropes.
On the exterior there's weather-resistant YKK AquaGuard zippers, and the bag is made from waterproof/tearproof sailcloth. The BackLight Elite also has a waterproof heavy-duty tarpaulin base, space for a hydration bladder, back and top panel access, two water bottle pockets, and front pockets offering a total of 17 litres of space.
There's also back and top panel access to all of your camera gear, allowing you to work out of your bag without getting your harness dirty or wet.
