MSG356 BackLight 18L Photo Daypack - Woodland Green

The BackLight® 18 litre, with a rear-panel compartment for photo gear. This smaller version offers a lightweight daypack enabling you to access your gear without taking off the backpack. You can change lenses or just snap a quick photo 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.

This back-panel access allows photographers to work out of the bag without getting the harness dirty, wet, muddy, or icy. It features dedicated compartments that fit up to a 13” laptop and a full-size tablet. As a daypack, its front pockets total 5 liters in personal gear carry for a day’s outing, such as extra layers, a light jacket, food, and more. It is available in two colors, Charcoal and Woodland Green, and meets most international and U.S. airline carry-on* requirements.

“The BackLight 18L was designed with comfort in mind,” said Doug Murdoch, MindShift’s CEO and Lead Designer. “The air channel on the rear panel was designed for maximum comfort. It features a large padded waist belt to support heavy gear and a contoured back panel for extra lumbar support.”
