    Shape Shifter 15 V2.0 Backpack (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Just what I was looking for. This backpack fits all my needs. I must state that it's not one you can access on the fly though. But, for me, I carry my Camera on Peak Design Capture Pro on my backpack shoulder strap and Capture Lens on my waist belt. This backpack carries my DSLR with battery pack, 70-200 f2.8, 24-105, 16-35 lenses. I don't carry a laptop so I use that spot for an oversized wallet. The water bottle holder is great. My favorite thing is it is not a thick backpack because of the way the gear is stored. Nothing is worse than banging into things while hiking because your backpack is too thick. Nice job Think Tank. Also, thanks B&H. It's always good to have a place I can purchase my gear that I trust.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost.... Im not a full time photographer and have a normal full time job that requires a lot of travel. Because of my business travel I have been looking for a bag that can serve the dual purpose of being a camera bag as well as carry my work related stuff. This bag almost gets there. It could use a couple extra pockets and a place for files...but generally meets my needs better than any bag i've had before. The one big complaint is why they didnt include a clip for your keys. Puzzles me why some its on some bags and not others....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed!  A slim laptop bag or camera bag. This backpack has high quality zippers and materials that can compress into a 3-inch deep slim backpack while having the super powers to expand for camera gear.  This is an awesome alternative to the typical velcro-divider-insert camera bags.  Especially when you do not need to bring the entire kitchen sink.  Another great feature is that you can attach the bag to a luggage handle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from another great design and funcionality from think tank great great great the shifter collapsing system its just great. now i can more around many places that i'm working and not being worried about hitting some person or thing. also its collapsing system is very useful to bring the packback and put it somewhere inside a airplane. many pockets for everything that u could or should put inside to make your workflow better than ever. straps are very comfortable and anatomic.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thought I'd love it... To start, the ThinkTank quality is excellent and its features for some photographers needing versatility could be great. For me on the other hand as a part time wedding photographer coming from a pelican 1510 case; I soon remembered why I sold my old Lowepro AW Trekker pack. The pain of switching gear and hassle of placing my pack down on the ground and getting dirty on your straps soon all returned to my memory. With the Shapeshifter I realized how much I disliked the difficulty of opening up and closing up quickly the lens compartment area quickly on the go. Soon I saw that using the pack and placing it on the ground that I had an open backpack split down the middle with one half of the pack with the lenses weighing the back straps side falling to the ground and the other back half stuffed with my speedlights bending in the opposite direction. It could hold quite a lot, but just didn't make it easier to grab on the go. Perhaps this pack is for a photographer needing to move his gear from one place to another, but doesn't need the pack during the actual photoshoot. I really wanted to love this bag especially for it's ability to zip up and compress the pack if needed, but that feature is really only helpful if you only want to use the laptop compartment without any other main camera gear. So I returned the Shapeshifter it for its cousin, a Mindshift Backlight 26l for the same excellent quality, but more for its main feature of quick rear access at the back to get to my gear quickly. Couldn't be more happier, I love my Mindshift Backlight 26l!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great photo backpack! I'm always on the quest for the perfect backpack (as I'm sure lots of others are), and while I know there isn't a perfect backpack for every situation, this one is great for most. I've bought/used/sold many backpacks, slings, messengers - but this one is a keeper. I just used this for a weekend roadtrip to an airshow and it worked perfectly. Fit my D500 + 150-600mm lens attached on one side, and my 11-20mm f/2.8 & 50-100mm f/1.8 on the other side. During the airshow when I had the camera body & 150-600mm w/hood out, I could shape-shift the bag to minimize the depth when wandering thru crowds. I wore the bag for many hours, and it was very comfortable even with everything inside. Side pocket for water bottle comes in handy when needed, and great that I can remove when I don't. One thing this bag isn't great for is being able to access/change lenses, etc. without putting the bag down. Thankfully, I also have a Mindshift Gear Backlight 26L which I use for backpacking or when I need to carry even more stuff (speedlights, etc.). This bag replaces a Peak Design Everyday Backpack 20L - which is a great bag with side access from both sides (and also looks great), but isn't as comfortable and doesn't minimize depth like this Shape Shifter does. I went back and forth between getting the Shape Shifter 15 v2.0 vs. 17 2.0, but this 15 is plenty big for my needs now. I guess if/when I decide to go to multiple camera bodies for events, I will have to buy the 17 as well...
