Mountainsmith Photo Tour FX Lumbar Pack – Hiking camera bag.
There have been a number of waist pack and lumbar type camera bags made over the years. Many of them were terrible. A few of them were ok for things like taking pictures at sport events where you need your hands free and didn’t want to carry a bulky camera bag. None of them however, were well suited for use on day hikes and backcountry travel. That is, until the Mountainsmith Photo Tour FX Lumbar Pack came into the picture.
Outdoor photographers and hikers are sure to appreciate the Mountainsmith Photo Tour FX Lumbar Packs harness system. The new design is made to hug your body in order to give you maximum support for those tricky shots and intense hikes to shoot locations. When things get extra rough, the Mountainsmith Photo Tour FX Lumbar Pack offers up removable shoulder straps to make your life easier.
Inside of the Mountainsmith Photo Tour FX Lumbar Pack you will find the standard photo compartments. The walls are all soft and padded. The dividers are made to “rip and stick” so that you can customize them to fit your needs. There are also several other smaller pockets for assorted gear and other items.
