MindShift Gear Introduces TrailScape Camera Backpack

MindShift Gear’s new TrailScape backpack balances outdoor photographers’ desire to have access to essential photo gear while maintaining a slim and compact profile.

Mindshift said the TrailScape fits a complete camera system, including a 70-200mm f/2.8 attached with hood in the shooting position. With its multiple lash points, image makers can carry extra gear, such as a light jacket and lunch.

“At MindShift, we are focused on meeting the needs of photographers who are often carrying sophisticated and expensive electronics deep into the wild. What they seek are protection and comfort,” said Doug Murdoch, MindShift Gear’s CEO and Lead Designer. “The TrailScape’s removable webbing waistbelt helps stabilize the bag while active and its contoured back panel with lumbar support and robust harness provide for all day comfort.”

The TrailScape features dedicated quick access to a smartphone/sunglasses pocket, tripod/monopod/hiking pole mounting system on the sides and a seamless rain cover included for downpour conditions.

Adjustable dividers customize the interior for DSLR or mirrorless camera kits, while there are interior zippered pockets for batteries, cards, filters and other accessories. An easy-grip zipper pulls for wet or cold conditions. The bag weighs 2.8 pounds and priced at $169.99.
