ThinkTank said the bag features an extra-large side panel alongside tripod straps, wide shoulder straps, a breathable 320G air-mesh back panel, customizable interior dividers and a seam-sealed rain cover.

The Mindshift PhotoCross 15 is made with a variety of durable, weather-resistant external materials, including 420D high-density nylon and heavy-duty nylon Tarpaulin. The backpack's interior features removable closed-cell foam dividers, as well as a polyurethane-backed velex liner, P210D liner and a polyurethane-coated 210T seal-sealed taffeta rain cover.

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.
