Re: Backpack for X-T2 thinking Mindshift

If you're not yet set on the Mindshift, take a look at the Manfrotto Off Road Hiker (https://www.manfrotto.us/off-road-hiker-camera-backpack-20l-grey-for-dslr-csc) or Lowepro Photo Sport (http://www.lowepro.com/photosport). Both come in two sizes and different colors. I had the smaller option of either.

They're very comfortable to wear even over a whole day. In the Lowepro I was able to carry a X-T1 with 10-24mm and 55-200mm and in the Manfrotto the same camera and UWA, the 35mm F2 and 50-140mm F2.8. I think both have more less the same size compartments, it's just I had different kits at the time of owning them. They also have enough space to carry a rain jacket, some snacks, a big water bottle and other bits and pieces. The side access is quick and easy to use.

What I didn't like and why I sold both: they have only 1-2 zippered compartments each to organize small stuff. I also prefer to attach a tripod either to the bottom of my backpack or to its front for better weight distribution and neither of these bags could provide this option. The Manfrotto theoretically does, but the straps attach the tripod but don't stabilize it.

Just food for thoughts,

Mike
