    Shape Shifter® 15 V2.0

    We designed the Shape Shifter backpack to transform easily from transportation mode to shooting mode. The backpack can hold two gripped bodies, three lenses including the 70-200mm f/2.8 and a number of accessories. Once you’re on location, you can take out the cameras and lenses and put both on your shoulders. Then, compress the backpack so it’s smaller and slimmer, making it easier to navigate through crowds and tight situations. Lightly padded to minimize bulk, the Shape Shifter is great for traveling on planes, buses and other forms of transportation. And because its not padded, it doesn’t appear to be a traditional foam-padded camera backpack.
