Size

Mindshift Gear Backlight 26L

(1/3)

There is no doubt whatsoever that this is an awesome bag in so many ways. All I want to add in this brief review is that you should be very careful to consider which size you choose. I went with the large bag because it impressively contains all my gear. Of course I can configure it 100 ways and mix and match my gear

Zipper

Mindshift Gear Backlight 26L

(1/1)

This bag is fantastic. I bought the newer LowePro Flipside Trek 450AW at the same to compare the two and having them side by side to compare made the choice clear. The build quality, innovation and just simply the main zippers quality were much better in comparison. This bag has ample padding for even heavy loads

Laptop

Mindshift Gear Backlight 26L

(1/1)

It does hold a 16 inch MacBook Pro just fine. I think bag is just the right size, not too big not too small. Highly recommended this bag and I also recommended Thinktank in general as I own many of their products and I think the are the best on the market!

Commute

Mindshift Gear Backlight 26L

(1/1)

But as soon as I put it on my back and head out to location I wonder why I didn't just go one size smaller. It's too late for me but maybe somebody else will see this review and get a bag they LIKE to carry.

Compartment

Mindshift Gear Backlight 26L

(1/1)

I loved the MP3 as well but I needed a space for my laptop and this bag fit that bill. I have two gripped bodies and several large lenses in my bag along with a laptop and iPad and still have lots of room left over for rain jacket, gloves, hats, and a plethora of other essentials. The hidden pocket in the photo side for cables and such is a great idea. Only suggestion I would make, that wasn’t enough to mark it down any stars, is to incorporate the rain guard into the bag similar to how Lowepro does with theirs so that it doesn’t get lost or take up valuable real estate in the bag

Strap

Mindshift Gear Backlight 26L

(1/1)

Tripod straps and foot pocket are super quick to deploy and easy to use and stow. No fiddly hooks.
