As required by the internet when receiving a package – this is Zach D Roberts with yet another unboxing video! This time I’m opening a box from the photo bag and accessory company Mindshift Gear.
It’s a traditional photo backpack from a new-ish company that likes to innovate. MindShift hit the scene with the hugely successful Kickstarter for their rotation 180° bags which Dave reviewed earlier this month.
The Trailscape 18L hits all the required standards for a great backpack and adds a couple more. With space enough for 2 camera bodies and a couple lenses and a price point lower than many of the standard bearers – this is a bag to add to your short list. I’ll have a full review next week and tomorrow I’ll have a video up showing what the bag fits and what I’m carrying to the Inaugural.
