MindShift Gear announces the release of an 18-liter version of its popular BackLight series, the BackLight® 18L rear-panel backpack.  This smaller version offers a lightweight daypack that enables photographers to access gear without taking off the backpack. They can change lenses or just snap a quick photo simply by rotating the bag to the front while the waist belt is still secured. Rear-panel access also adds security when traveling since camera gear is protected from behind.

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.

This new backpack holds a variety of camera kits:
