The black TPDP-101 Perspektiv Daypack from Thule is a very lightweight 2.6 lb pack with enough space for your photo gear and accessories. The water-repellent pack will accommodate your prosumer DSLR with attached wide angle lens as well as holding an additional 1-2 lenses up to 70-200mm f/2.8, flash and accessories-all customizable with movable dividers. Thule includes their SafeZone technology that helps protect fragile gear stored within the bag.

For sheer travel convenience, the pack comes with a removable camera pod that can readily be extracted and left home or stored in a hotel safe. Removing the pod leaves you extra space inside the pack for other items you might prefer to carry on your excursion. An organizer panel is sized to hold 3 SD cards and two batteries. Two zippered weather-resistant stash pockets are provided for small stuff such as hand warmers, small flashlight or lens caps.

The pack is made from durable 500D nylon and treated with a water-repellent finish. The welded and taped seams bolster the overall strength of the bag. The backpack straps are breathable, perforated EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) and polyester mesh-both materials adding to the overall comfort and strength of the pack. A top carry handle is there for quick retrieval moments such as from your car, closet or luggage rack.

The zippers are all rugged YKK design. A hideaway waist belt is also provided for extra stability and balance while you're on the trail. Inside, the lining is hi-visibility that will help you locate small items in low light scenarios. And, when the weather turns against you, a flip and zip rain fly will add another layer of protection to the pack. The TPDP-101 Perspektiv Daypack is backed by a 25-year warranty from Thule.

          Comments about Thule TPDP-101 Perspektiv Daypack (Black):

          I bought this bag to get my every day sort of gear to and from school. The bag is very comfortable in riding position and does not cause a huge amount of drag (I bike very fast, so this is a big deal to me). Nothing flaps around in the wind, and nothing moves when I stand up out of the seat to climb the hills or stop at a stop light. Great bag. The light weatherproofing is perfect to protect my gear from a few sprinkles and the rain cover has proven to be pretty foolproof. I have also taken the bag mountain biking once and its low profile was great for not catching on branches! I have not seen it mentioned anywhere, but if I remove the insert from the top compartment which separates it from the camera section, I can fit my 15" MacBook Pro Retina behind the camera insert. The fit is pretty much perfect--anything larger might not fit. With that arrangement, I can still fit an iPad, two A5 notebooks, and a light jacket in the top compartment! Amazing! As for the camera compartment and access itself: everything works as advertised. The bottom oft he bag is very stiff and makes me feel very comfortable about setting the bag on the ground. With my computer in place, there is a touch of zipper strain when you try to close the zipper with the bag slung off one shoulder--this is not a problem with the bag resting on the table so I don't worry about it fatiguing too much. All around awesome bag if you like the aesthetic. I think it fits in both the sporty and casual environments and does not stand out as a bag that might have $ dollars worth of equipment in it. Which I think is just fine.

              Bought this to be a smaller alternative to my traditional daypack. Just enough room for my DSLR and two lenses in the bottom and plenty of room in the top for other odds and ends. Perfect for a day hike or a day around the city.

              I bought this for traveling with my Canon 5D Mark III, and 3 lenses (24-105, 70-200, 50 prime). I had a real hard time fitting everything in the bag. It's advertised to hold a 70-200 lens, but it simply does not live upto expectations. This bag could be so much better if it were bigger and had better quality construction. I had to return it and go with Lowepro. I am disappointed in Thule and expected more from them.

                Comments about Thule TPDP-101 Perspektiv Daypack (Black):

                I bought this backpack because I don't have to take it anymore from my shoulders and put it on dirty or wet ground all the time I want to take out my camera or change the lens. I can fit in main compartment Nikon D800 with 24-70mm lens, 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-S lens with reversed hood and two prime lenses. The backpack is very sturdy and nothing is shifting inside. The bottom is very firm, waist belt actually works as intended, not like "shoelace" on the other brands. Water bottle holder on the side is a must unless you like to carry our drink in your hands all the time.
