Mountainsmith, a Colorado-based camera bag company specializing in durable cases for gear protection in the backcountry, has launched a new camera bag series called T.A.N., for “Tough as Nails.”
Mountainsmith said the new bags were designed in collaboration with photographer and explorer, Chris Burkard, whose name is featured on the bags. The series is comprised of the Tanuck 40L backpack, Tanack 10L lumbar pack and the TAN Kit Cube in small, medium and large sizes.
The Tanuck 40L backpack ($230) is the largest and most expensive of the group, offering a “tough and versatile” design with space for a 17-inch laptop, camera, lenses, batteries, tripod, hydration bladder and other accessories.
The backpack is compatible with the smaller Tanack 10L lumbar pack ($100), which offers additional space for more gear. The TAN Kit Cube bags ($50, $60, and $70), meanwhile, are designed to carry a camera, lenses and accessories like SD cards.
All five bags are made from 610d Cordura HP fabric with a 210d nylon liner and EVA high-density PE foam. The backpack also features 630d nylon carbonate, while the backpack and lumbar pack both include YKK zippers. All five bags are water-resistant.
