Think Tank Photo/Mindshift Gear has announced a new BackLight backpack, offering the largest capacity in the BackLight series. The new BackLight Elite 45L backpack offers an eponymous 45 liters of internal volume, allowing for ample carrying capacity for your cameras, lenses, laptops and other gear. There are also external attachment points, well-suited to the adventuring photographer, which allow you to store gear such as static rope, axes, snowboards/skis and tripod.

The backpack is constructed using weather-resistant materials and zippers, allowing you to safely carry your gear in extreme conditions. The BackLight Elite 45L features YKK AquaGuard zippers and waterproof/tearproof sailcloth, extensive lumbar padding and a ventilated quick-dry back panel. Like other BackLight backpacks, the bag offers rear-panel access, which provides security.

Think Tank CEO and Lead Designer Doug Murdoch says of the new backpack, "We paid special attention to the needs of backcountry photographers while designing the Elite 45L. In design, fit, protection, and durability, the BackLight Elite 45L stands up to the demands of outdoor photo expeditions like no other bag we have ever released."

Given its large volume, you can expect to comfortably fit a large gripped DSLR with an attached 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens plus a flash, a couple of fast zoom lenses and an additional few prime lenses. There are also dedicated compartments for a 17-inch laptop and 10-inch tablet, plus 17 liters of front pocket carrying capacity, a pair of large water bottles and much more.
