What It Packs
As a hybrid shooter who shoots both photo & video, I carried one lens, microphone, SD cards, and batteries in the camera insert. The camera and my zoom lens stayed in the camera loader for quick on-the-go access, my DJI Air 2s drone bag inside the backpack alongside my winter layers and extra shirts. The top loader was undoubtedly my favorite because it allowed easy access to the critical property — sunglasses, wallet, beanie, gloves, chapstick, etc. The side pockets offered space for a tripod on one side and my gimbal on the other. Additionally, I used the mesh pockets on the shoulder strap to store a small juice bottle.
I was immediately impressed with all the items I could quickly bring that I wouldn't be able to if I were using a standard gear-focused camera bag. The MTN Light is incredibly light for a 45L rucksack, as its lightweight solution is the product's main characteristic. The shoulder strap and back pad are made from perforated material, making them breathable for sweaty all-day terrain. The waist belt is remarkably comfortable, which distributes the bag's weight throughout the body so that the weight is not just on your shoulders. Moreover, with proper customization of the straps to fit your person, the bag perfectly snugs your frame and functions as another layer in icy conditions.
The 45L Mountain Light performs prominently in the field, feels sturdy against various weather conditions, and looks fantastic. The waterproof Cordura fabric made it possible for me to use the bag in snowfall without worries. The snow fell away without penetrating the interior, safeguarding the necessary gear.
