Introducing the Backlight 36L

The BackLight just got BIGGER!


The BackLight 36L Photo Daypack continues MindShift’s commitment to providing photographers with rapid access to their gear.

The back panel opening allows access to all of your gear when taking the pack off is not an option. The zippered rear opening reduces the amount of dust, mud, ice or other elements coming in contact with your gear or the pack, while keeping your shoulder harness clean.

  • Back-panel opening provides access to all of your camera gear without taking the pack off
  • Front pockets totaling 11L carry personal gear for a day’s outing: extra layers, a light jacket, food, etc.
  • Includes tripod/monopod mounting system on front or side
  • Dedicated compartments fit up to a 15'' laptop and a 10'' tablet


  • Holds 2 gripped DSLRs with lenses attached and 4-6 standard zoom lenses plus a flash
  • Holds 2 gripped mirrorless bodies with lenses attached and 6-8 lenses plus a flash
  • Fits up to a 15'' laptop and full size tablet
  • Fits personal gear in the 11L front compartments
