ThinkTank's new bag can accommodate a DSLR with three to five lenses (including a 70-200mm F2.8 lens) and up to a 15-inch laptop. Zippered interior pockets can be used to store memory cards, spare batteries and other small accessories. Other features include a water bottle pocket, front pockets and both top and side carrying handles.

The ThinkTank PhotoCross Backpack 15 retails for $169.99 with carbon grey and orange ember color options. This model joins the smaller PhotoCross 10 and 13 backpacks.
