BackLight 18L Review

I bought this because I went to Iceland and wanted something to protect my camera while having some flexibility with other items as well. It also needed to fit IcelandAirs strict restrictions on carry-on under the seat items. It fit perfectly under the seat in front of me and honestly was just really cool. I used the waist-strap to take out or put away my camera everytime while hiking which to be honest I thought was a gimmick at first but was super helpful. It ended up being one of my favorite features lol, not needing to set the bag down to open it. Really happy with it, I am still new to photography but as I accumulate more equipment I will definitely go here for a bigger bag. It fit everything too, i even put shot glass souvenirs where i had space so they wouldn’t break lol. Solid backpack!

Fantastic bag!

I love this bag. It is really well made and designed, and clearly well thought out in terms of features. It's very versatile, and carries a lot.

Perfect for my trip to Iceland

Step 1 -- book a trip to Iceland. Step 2 -- get a camera backpack that didn't exceed Icelandair's strict carry-on allowance. For the flight I packed my compact camera, GoPro, iPad, chargers and accessories like memory cards in a Secure Pixel Pocket Rocket , Platypod and ball head, notebook and pens, a few microfiber towels, sunscreen, rain pants and hat, gloves, food, wallet, sunglasses, water bottle and probably other things that I don't recall right now. Once there, I just carried what was needed each day. There was plenty of room without making the cameras hard to grab quickly. It was easy to manage on a cramped tour van. It stood up to the elements experienced in early June. Thanks for including the rain cover and plenty of dividers.

It’s not that comfortable on my back, I’m thinking I should have maybe gone bigger. Like the looks, nice material
