blue pack open side

This unusual medium-size daypack from MindShift Gear has a split personality. The included removable dedicated camera and lens with strap insert is large enough to carry a jumbo six-pack of your favorite beverage plus cold block and a few sandwiches when it’s not being used to hold your photo gear. You can use it separately or stow in in the bottom half of the UltraLight Dual 36L, with access to the insert from a side zipper. A folding trap door panel divides the interior of the main pack into two compartments, whether or not the camera/drink insert is in place.

The 24/7 Traffic Collection is a line of similar-styled satchels and pouches sold exclusively through Adorama Camera. The urban-designed collection includes several holster pouches as well as a few over-the-shoulder bags. I got my hands on their larger 24/7 Messenger Bag, which is not a camera bag per se, but it can carry your camera, some ancillary gear, plus other stuff.

BackLight 26L Photo Backpack
MindShift Gear
$250 U.S. Available in gray or green. More photos are on the company’s site for this product.

bag exterior

The $250 MindShift BackLight 26L (the 26L stands for 26 liters of internal volume) is a medium-sized backpack designed for the outdoors photographer but can be very much at home with anyone who wants to carry a lot of photo gear on their back in a handsomely designed bag. It comes in both green and graphite colors; I chose to review the graphite colored one. The first thing I noticed is how light the MindShift BackLight 26L feels (just around 4lbs/1.8kg). I don’t like heavy camera bags for comfort reasons, and this case does not add much more weight to my already heavy camera kit.

About Steve Hammond

Steve is a computer geek, and he has been for many years. He has studied computer science for 15 years, with a college degree in computer science, a backchelor degree in computer with a minor in mathematics, and a Master degree in computer science. In high school he was initiated to computer on an Apple II, then his parents bought him a Commodore 64, then a Mac Plus. But in computer science, DOS and Windows PC were used mostly, so he switched to the dark side for a while. In 2000 he began doing some photography, then discovered iPhoto which make him come back to the Macintosh in 2002. Since, he became a Mac geek again and he sure won't turn back to the PC.
