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.

Asked by: Toms A.
This model would be a better choice then the 30L Model you were inquiring about before. The 40L will give you more space.

2 AD600 pro + Sony A7R III + small lens fits in this bag?
Asked by: ale
The AD660s are W: 4.9 x L: 9.8" so two of them should take about a 10"x10" space with the stand mounts facing each other. That will leave you more than half the bag for your camera and several lenses with room to spare.

question

Is the size of 40L allowed on any airline for flying?
Asked by: Oliver
it is NOT allowed per NEW guidelines that some of the airlines are NOW following! within the last year the carry on size that is allowed decreased. it was all over the news. CHECK the airline you fly often to see what guidelines they follow, though, some may adopt the new rules even if not following them now. under the OLD guidelines, this bag was allowed. under the NEW guidelines it's something like one inch over. NOT much, and i doubt they'd harass you, but, that wasn't your question per se. simply google the new carry on guidelines to get the exact dimensions...

question

no hydration bag & hydration pocket ??! ... no tripod strap ??!...
Asked by: Gery R.
there's a pocket on the side that you can definitely fit a water bottle in...and there's a tripod holder that unfolds from two compartments on the back. personally I keep the tripod on one side, and strap it in place with one of the buckles
