BackLight® 18L

SKU#: MS355

The BackLight® 18L, with a rear-panel compartment for photo gear, allows you to access your gear without taking off the backpack. You can change lenses or just snap a quick photo simply by rotating 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.
