MindShift Gear’s BackLight 36L Outdoor Photography Backpack Offers Expanded Capacity

09/26/2017

The BackLight® 36L photo daypack continues MindShift’s commitment to providing outdoor photographers with rapid access to their gear. The new, larger backpack offers 10 more liters of capacity than its predecessor. Like the original BackLight, the back-panel opening allows access to gear when taking the pack off is not an option. The zippered compartment reduces the amount of dust, mud, ice or other elements coming in contact with gear, while keeping the pack and shoulder harness clean.

Available in two colors, Charcoal and Woodland Green, the BackLight 36L provides 11 liters of daypack capacity for personal gear, including separate dedicated compartments for a 10” tablet and 15” laptop. Even with its increased size, the backpack meets most International and U.S. carry-on requirements.
