There are huge quantity of dividers provided with the bag that allows you to customize the inner as you prefer to accomodate various kind of gears.
Bonus: the rain cover
Usually the mountaneering backpacks comes with a bright flashes of color can be a good thing for people traveling in the mountains, when you might want to be seen from a distance, expecially in case of rescue. But for those wanting to blend into their surroundings while waiting for wildlife, it might cause a problem. Hence MindShift chose a wonderfull soft brown color for this rain cover.
Well done, guys!
What I dislike
It's about 10 months that I use this backback estensively and there are only two things that I don't like in this backback:
1. The photo compartment is a bit tight for a 500 f4 with camera attached, one possible solution it's to remove the upper rigid protection but in that way the upper pocket is too flabby. And also I have to put lens+camera upside down, because the front part of the lens (with hood) is higher that the depth of the camera unit, so I have to put the camera in the bottom part (the one in contact with the terrain) with a risk of damage if I put down the backpack without too much attention.
2. When I remove the top pocket, to become airplane carry-on compatible, I cannot close the straps with the clips because both ones (the rear and the front) cannot be closed together, they are both male. So the straps fall down and I have to fix them with some wire. It would be nice if the front ones would be male and the rear, female clips.
In a few words, if you ask me "Do you recommend this backpack?" I would absolutely say: YES!
I don't think that, at the moment, on the market there are any other products that have all these features into one single product.
I'm curious to test an accessory of this backpack that allows me to store more stuff when I'm doing camping and bushcrafting and I take with me only few gears for landscape photography.
