Think Tank Photo designed their taupe Perception Tablet Backpack as a daypack that gives you maximum mobility without sacrificing carrying capacity. This versatile bag has a dedicated padded tablet compartment, while the main compartment can hold a mirrorless camera with additional room for smaller electronic devices such as an iPad Mini, GPS unit, smartphone, radio, and headlamp.

The Perception's exterior is made of 600 Denier nylon with the soft look and feel of twill, and treated with a water repellent coating. When repelling water isn't enough, a seam-sealed rain cover is included. Its underside features a polyurethane coating for added protection from stray water. Built for all day comfort, the padded backpack harness is breathable to allow airflow and comes equipped with an adjustable sternum strap to keep the bag close to your body and to limit load shift.

    Perception Tablet Backpack (Taupe) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Designed with me and my gear in mind I love this bag for air travel as it is sized to qualify as a personal item on Delta, meaning iI can fit it under the seat in front of me and I can still bring on my carryon suitcase. The padded laptop sleeve is sized for my 11 MacBook Air. I put my micro 4/3 Panasonic cameras (a GX7, 14140mm and a GM1, 12-32mm lens) in the divided camera pouch and I still have lots of room below for a wind breaker and in-flight needs and toys. I use one of the two outside pockets for my iPhone. The bag's daypack size and (taupe) color are discrete for travel and nature photographyand everything in-between. It is another Think Tank Grand Slam product!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bag but to small I have only had the bag for a couple days but fits my a7ii with kit lens on and another similar sized lens next to it. As well as my 11 inch MacBook Air. But overall the bag is just to small for me. I think it's a good idea but Not so useful. Personally can't fit enough stuff for a good day trip. Also I felt like the straps were propertional for the bag so they as well were to small. Didn't fit comfortably on my back. So I am in the process of returning and have ordered the next bag up in size (Perception 15). I will review that bag as well once I receive it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again and again It all depends on the size of your laptop, but if you using a 11' macbook air - this backpack would be the best on the market, very well build, sits perfect on the back, love the pockets in size (like the shapeshifter style). Hope that it will last long for me, after using a lot of different Thinktank products I would say, the best product they made so far (for me).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Quality - Fits Surface Pro 3! This review is intended for both photographers looking for a great, mid-sized backpack, but ALSO Surface Pro 3 owners. First, let me start by saying I was browsing online looking for a backpack that strictly looked like the best carrying option for my Surface Pro 3 (SP3) along with all my photo gear. This bag definitely got the job done. In the pictures of the tablet pocket in the listing here, they show what looks like an Ipad resting in it. It looked like there was very little extra room around the edges, and with the Ipad being just slightly smaller than the SP3, I was taking a chance - but it paid off. The SP3 WITH type cover folded over the screen fits like a bug. It is very snug in the pocket, which is great. I was really worried the SP3 would be too big, being a 12 inch tablet, but it fit quite well. As you can see in my photo, the length of it sticks over top just about an inch and a half or so. Not a huge deal at all. Now - for the actual photography gear, this bag has all the answers. It's amazing. Before this bag, I was using the LowePro Fastpack 150AW. These bags are similar in size, but the Think Tank Tablet uses space so much better. I was not able to fit my SP3 in the LowePro bag because the bag was sectioned into a top half and a bottom half, effectively cutting off a chunk of length that could have held a longer tablet. Enter, the Think Tank Tablet. Not only was I able to safely slide my tablet in no problem, I was able to fit everything in it. - SP3 Charger, Microsoft Arc Mouse Surface Edition, SP3 Pen, Wireless shutter remote, extra battery, battery charger, thick wool gloves, intervalometer, wired shutter release, My Sony a65 with 50mm prime lens attached, a 70-300 sigma lens in one of the lens pockets, an 18-250 sony lens in another pocket, memory card holder, rechargeable batteries for intervalometer, charger for those batteries, lens cleaning supplies, usb cable, pc card reader, and some other smaller things. I will note that if you have a larger Nikon or Canon camera body, you might have a tough time fitting it in with all those things mentioned, above, but I could see it still being able to fit if you subtracted some less important gear. Not going to take any stars away for that as Think Tank makes this clear that it's for mirrorless or small DSLR cameras. Even after all that, there is still room on the top to throw in a snack or a last minute lens. The quality of the material used is by far the best I've handled. I've only been shooting semi-professionally for 4 years, but I've used various bags by all different makers and Think Tank has efficiency and quality nailed down to a tee. The carrying straps have lots of good cushion, so you don't get sore much at all carrying this over your shoulders with a lot of weight in it. As a bonus, the bag also comes with an elastic rain cover. It looks like a black shower cap that fits over the top half of the bag. Looks like it'd work well. I honestly can't think of anything negative to say about it. Even the two available color schemes are stylish. 10/10 would recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and Well Designed for My X-T2 I did a lot of research before settling on this backpack. I wanted one that was small enough to easily slide under the seat in front of me on long flights with enough room for my feet, too. I haven't tested this yet, but I think it'll do. I also wanted one that was simply designed and light with excellent zippers. I like the look of this backpack, which I'll be using for a Fujifilm X-T2 with two or three travel lenses: 16-55mm, 23mmF2, and 90mm. In the camera compartment that takes up the top 2/3 of the interior, the 16-55 is mounted on the body and the 23 is next to it. Below the compartment in the bottom 1/3 of the interior, in a separate case, is the 90. During the flight, however, I actually keep all my camera gear in the carry-on that goes into the overhead luggage rack and stuff other items (light jacket, water bottle, headphones, mp3 player, etc.) in the backpack. I then use the backpack for camera gear at the destination. This bag is small and inconspicuous, with only two small, shallow, zippered pockets on the outside that can't hold very much. I plan to use the lower for the rain cover and the upper for my iPhone or other small paraphernalia. (The lower is actually part of a tripod tote system.) My one gripe is with the straps. Like most of these small camera backpacks, they're huge: thick, wide, and stiff. For a bag this small, I'd prefer softer, thinner, more flexible straps. The overall material and build quality are excellent. It maintains its shape with or without equipment. At first, the camera compartment seems oddly placed and shaped. With camera and lens inside, there's still a bit of room at the top. The drawstring around the compartment is stiff, and I'm not sure how it's supposed to be used. Still, in my preliminary tests, the camera and lens sit comfortably and securely in the compartment with drawstrings loose. While out shooting, I can quickly slide the backpack off, unzip, and draw the camera. For my purposes, this bag is a keeper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this bag again! I like this bag a lot, especially when I want to travel light. It holds quite a bit of gear for it's size and the light color doesn't absorb heat during the summer months the way a black bag would. The harness is very comfortable. I would definitely buy it again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small bag for just your camera and MacBook. This is not a full review, but I just want to mention that I needed a bag that protects my camera (Olympus EM5/EM10/PEN) with 12-35 and maybe some other accessories like a prime or flash The bag does that perfectly with a compartment in the top half of the bag which is easily accessible once you open the top zipper. Because it's suspended, it's well protected against a drop to the ground. But I also wanted a bag that fits my iPad Pro 10 and this bag is just perfect for those two things. The bottom half is where you would put other daytrip supplies, and it has room for a few things like a waterbottle, packable jacket and maybe some snacks. This is a bag if you want to travel light. I also have a MacBook Retina 12 and it JUST fits into the pouch area even though the pocket was designed for the narrower MacBook Air 11. It fits without forcing it too much, so this is the smallest camera/laptop bag that fits the MacBook that I have found. Good if you just want a minimal bag for a combination of mirrorless cameras and a tablet or MacBook.
