Excerpt: I've owned this bag for 4 years primarily for commuting with my gear on airplanes and by car and for day hikes. I use this pack almost daily for carrying my work laptop and every weekend for hiking trips with my camera equipment inside.

Like all Think Tank bags, (I have four different ones), they are all constructed with impeccable craftmanship and you can tell that...

Excerpt: I just completed a shoot on the beach (The South Florida weather in January is very nice!). Since I hate to put my camera bag down in the sand I performed the entire 3 hour shoot with the Shape Shifter on my back. I was comfortable the entire time! I could not have asked for more.
Excerpt: Seems to be a Great Pack for airline travel (specifically carry on) and for packing gear on location. Durable and spacious enough to carry a 17" Asus laptop, two D800 bases; a 24-70,2.8; 700-200 2.8, 85, 1.8 lenses, 900 Flash and a few other small items.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Roomy, Strong Construction
