Carry your photography equipment and 17" laptop off the beaten path to a foreign location or while on a hiking trip close to home in the rugged charcoal FirstLight 40L 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 40L was designed to fit 2 DSLRs with vertical grips, 6-8 standard zoom lenses, and 1-2 flashes. Keep your tablet or 17" 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, or leave your water bottle at home and take advantage of the dedicated 3L hydration pocket on the side of the backpack. 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.

The FirstLight 40L is made of multiple types of durable nylon coated in water-repellant polyurethane, with a reinforced bottom panel for extra protection against harsh environmental elements. Designed to fit various statures and heights, the contoured harness system can be adjusted at 11 different points. Three grab handles make it easy to hoist into an overhead bin or in and out of vehicles en route to your destination. The shoulder straps and waist belt distribute weight evenly, while the shaped aluminum torso stay provides additional support, allowing you to stay out on the trail longer.

    FirstLight 40L DSLR & Laptop Backpack (Charcoal) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from massive this is a beast of a bag. make sure you NEED something this BIG. fully packed it is a bear to carry. not comfortable at all full of gear, but NO bag this size would be- camera gear is not light. that being said i think it's THE BEST bag out there if that's what you need. great storage within, and phenomenal cushioning for gear. and easy customization of the compartments. BE AWARE- NEW carry on rules that SOME airlines are following will put this beast of a bag JUST over what's allowed- by an inch or so (i can't recall exactly, you can easily google it). that's not saying any airline will bust chops over an inch but per the old guidelines, this is allowable, and per the new guidelines, it's actually not, so there's always that small risk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent camera bag this backpack is exceptional. the dividers are sturdy, the bag itself is very rigid yet super comfortable to wear. very well engineered and worth the price, can easily be arranged to carry any and all of your gear

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! Spectacular bag. Happily carries my Nikon D5 with my Nikkor 600, 24-70 & 70-200... It has been around the world with me, and been used in some pretty extreme conditions - I love it. Never given me any problems. Better than my ThinkTank & F-Stop bags. Fits in your overhead luggage with no issues.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solution for 8x10 Camera When you strip the internal compartment of the dividers it allows an excellent solution to carrying an 8x10 camera. I have an 8x10 Richard Ritter camera, while light, doesn't have the slimmest dimensions and this bag handles its width. Given this experience, I can't see how the bag wouldn't handle a Chamonix, Ebony, Dorff, etc. The internal dimensions also allow you to place a divider row above the camera where you can carry 3-4 lenses depending on the size of your glass. So far, so good. Where the bag fails... well, we have a camera and glass but we need film, right? The front pocket is poorly designed and only allows for 3 film holders and its tight. I have an old Lowepro from the 80's that allows you carry at least 5 holders with plenty of room but doesn't provide the carrying support this bag offers. That's a bit of a fail on MindShift's part. They could have allowed for more material, or a secondary zipper that could allow the pocket to expand. However, with that minor gripe the bag functions well and is a comfortable pack. The internal accessories pockets are rendered useless because as you fill them it makes it very difficult to zipper the bag since this sucker is really just hauling that large format rig.
