You know you can get the shot, but first you have to get your gear to the goods.

You aren't going to get those epic photos of face shots in the backcountry sitting on your couch or skinning out there with your gaggle of gear in your hands. Load up the Mountainsmith Borealis Camera Pack to seek out the images you want. This comfortable yet rugged pack holds a mid-size to pro SLR body and a variety of lenses in the adjustable internal dividers in the bottom panel main camera compartment. And there's an array of external, internal, organizer, and padded pockets to store your entire camera kit and backcountry ski essentials, like layers and food. If you run out of space inside, you can lash stuff on the outside, like using the side panel pocket with zip out bottom for tripod and light stand carry. The load-stabilizing compression system helps you make quick work of heavy loads, while the molded back panel provides comfort on trail. The included rain cover keeps items protected during unexpected storms. Mountainsmith also added a dedicated laptop sleeve for on-site editing during in-town photo missions, or it makes a nifty place to store small fold-up softboxes. Basically, you have no excuse for not bringing home those prize-winning shots.

Borealis Camera Backpack

Boulder, CO based professional adventure photographer and Mountainsmith ambassador, Andy Mann has been torturing our camera packs since 2007. He has been providing real world feedback and suggesting innovative, cutting-edge features along the way. In 2012, we sat down and built a new line of camera packs from the ground up using our imaginations, new material advancements, and ideas sketched on beverage napkins. Andy collaborated with our design team to create a series of bags built as tough and extreme as the terrain he explores. We're confident these packs will get you to your next shoot.

Redesigned for 2014, Mountainsmith offers an assortment of comprehensive camera carry solutions for the photographer seeking to capture the experiences in the great outdoors. Incorporating over 30 years of pack building experience, we offer a better fit through correct load dispersion and ergonomic, ease of use for the photographer.


This technical photo hauler is at home on the trail, slopes, and far off lands ensuring a well organized and comfortable carry for any camera intensive pursuit.
