Leave nothing behind.
You aren't going to get those epic photos in the backcountry sitting on your coach or skinning out there with your gaggle of gear in any old backpack. Load up the Mountainsmith Parallax Camera Pack to seek out the images you want. This is Mountainsmith's most technical camera pack, which features a backcountry suspension and a load of camera and media organization features. There's a three-point access to camera gear (back panel, side panel, top panel), so it's always within reach. The side access DSLR case can be deployed as a stand-alone pod or chest mounted accessory.
The front padded laptop compartment fits most 17-inch screens and the second front pocket is for iPad/Kindle/tablet. Use the side panel pocket with zip out bottom for tri-pod 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. Should you need to have more lenses at the ready, you can attach Mountainsmith lens cases (sold separately) to the attachment points.

Best Bag Ever... for me
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got this bag to pack all of my equipment around. I love Mountainsmith and this is the best pack ever. It is roomy and the compartments are adjustable. I love the yellow interior it helps a ton with finding things. It also has pockets w/ red & green zippers to distinguish fresh and used batteries. The color is a nice gunmetal grey color. There are great pockets on the hip belt. You can get into the pack from the back but also from two smaller pockets, one on top and one on the lower left. I love that the tripod straps are on the side instead of the front. Overall an Amazing backpack.
