Carry your photography equipment and 15" laptop off the beaten path to a foreign location or while on a hiking trip close to home in the rugged charcoal FirstLight 20L DSLR & Laptop Backpack from MindShift. Designed with the needs of outdoor photographers in mind, using multiple travel means, this high capacity backpack is built for extended days on the trail.

The roomy main compartment features adjustable and removable high-density foam dividers for your cameras, large telephoto lenses or any gear you need to complete the job; the FirstLight 20L was designed to fit 1 DSLR and 4-6 standard zoom lenses, or 2 large mirrorless cameras, 5-7 lenses, and 1 flash. Keep your tablet or 15" laptop in the separate front compartment, and your phone and wallet in the easily accessible top zippered pocket or the two front stuff pockets. Store your spare camera batteries, filters, and other small accessories in the interior mesh pockets and your water bottle in the designated pocket with drains and a built-in cinch cord for added security, . You can secure your tripod or monopod in the mounting system on the front or side of the backpack. Side compression straps with locking buckles provide additional lash points.

MindShift Gear FirstLight 20L Reviews

Well made, but lacking in features for trail use.

The good: The bag is well made, and the interior is great for a mirrorless system, especially if you are using one of the newer long lens. I got it primarily because it can accommodate my Fuji X-E2 with the XF 100-400 lens attached and with the hood in the shooting position. The bag is also very comfortable to wear, and the way the waist harness wraps around of the front of the bag for travel is also a nice touch. The bad: You would think that a bag that is designed for a long day on the trail could accommodate a standard 32 oz. water bottle in the side pockets, but the pockets are too small for anything other than a small water bottle. This is especially annoying, as the FirstLight 20L does not have a hydration pocket. The external gear pockets are so snug that they can hold a windbreaker and nothing else. If you want to carry a lunch, it will have to go inside the bag in place of camera gear.

Well made, compact back pack the only one that I use now

A good choice to put everything in an small pack with computer pocket.

Great bag, too small for lens with collar

I wanted to love this bag, it is made really well, and the adjustable suspension system is very comfortable, BUT...the bag is just not deep enough for a DSLR with a collared lens/mounting plate--unless you are willing to unscrew the collar and turn it every time you put the camera with lens attached into the bag. In my world, that would get old very quickly. The goal was to use it to carry a Canon 7Dii, 400mm f5.6, 70-200mm f2.8, flash, which would fit nicely, if the lens collars were removed. I really wish they had made the bag 1 deeper!
