MindShift FirstLight Review - Adventure Photo Backpack

The quality and durability of the Mindshift Ultralight backpack was one of my original main concerns. However after two highly demanding adventures involving rain, snow, sand storms and sharp abrasive rocks, I’m absolutely impressed.Its main points of stress and load-bearing are stitched for strength and longevity. Its materials are thin and lightweight where possible, and rugged and durable where necessary. I was only able to cause wear to the stretchy external compartment of the bag after literally dragging it along highly abrasive rocks in a slot canyon, an adventure that resulted in similar (or worse) wear-and-tear on another backpack. Again, I am very impressed. Under normal to moderate wear and tear and abuse, this bag should last many years!

The MindShift UltraLight backpacks claim to be the lightest daypack series of camera backpacks ever, and at just 1.3kg (2.8lbs) unloaded for the 25L model, I’m certainly inclined to believe them, though I’ll try to look up some other backpack weights soon for comparison. Suffice to say, this is one heck of a lightweight backpack! For , can it deliver enough quality and performance?
