TanuckLITE 40L Backpack



Inspired by the Tanuck 40, this pack offers the same killer organization and versatility while cutting down on the weight.

From adventure travel to local photoshoots, the TanuckLITE boasts incredible durability, versatility and customization. Weighing less than four pounds, the bag features lightweight and durable aramid ripstop fabric. Padded shoulder straps with load lifter suspension protect your shoulders and back from bearing the weight of the bag.

To cut down on additional weight, the waist belt can be removed for those light load days. Compression straps secure the load to keep your gear from shifting on the go. Extremely versatile, the removable lid can be clipped into the shoulder webbing loops for easy access to your camera, lenses, batteries and other essentials.

Keep your tripod, lights, batteries and more secure with the MOLLE style webbing, front panel expansion pocket, two side panel pockets and D-Ring attachment points. Increasing usability, protection and access, the bag stands up on its own when it's fully loaded. The pack also comes with a hydration sleeve, perfect for day hikes.
