The Urban Access 13 Backpack features the meticulous construction and high-quality materials we are so used to seeing from ThinkTank, it has external measurement of 12.2 x 18.9 x 9 inches, with internal dimensions of 10.2 x 13 x 5.5inches, there is an integrated 13inch laptop compartment that measures up at 9.2 x 13 x 0.8inches and the whole bag weighs 3.7 lbs when empty. This means you end up being able to pack away one ungripped DSLR or Mirrorless body with lens attached (up to a 24–70mm f/2.8), as well as two, three or four additional lenses including a 70–200mm f/2.8 detached AND a 13” laptop, plus your personal gear. Constructed from a tough 500D 2-tone poly tech-weave, 420D high-density nylon, nylon webbing, high-density nylon air-mesh and 3-ply bonded nylon thread this bag can handle the elements, the durable water-repellent (DWR) coating with polyurethane backed fabric adds superior water-resistance. On the inside there are adjustable stiffened closed-cell foam dividers with a polyurethane backed liner, tough 210D nylon, super-grip Velex, Hexa mesh and high-density nylon microfiber for protection and extended lifespan. There is a polyurethane coated nylon 190T seam-sealed rain cover for when the weather gets seriously grim, the robust shoulder harness has load-lifters to help adjust the weight of the pack and the removable sternum strap and waist belt secures the backpack to your body and helps to distribute the weight evenly. There are two quick side-access panels, just swing the bag around to the left or right to grab your gear on the fly, or gain access to all your belonging via the back panel, it is easy to pack and personalise the interior for your specific gear. The centre tripod mounting system balances even the largest of tripods securely while still allowing access to your gear, there is a deep front pocket that fits a light jacket, a luggage handle pass-through, top compartment can be used for snacks and personal gear, there are expandable water bottle pockets on both sides, top compartment mesh pockets help to keep small items organised and the internal organiser pockets give you easy access to small accessories, filters, batteries and cards for example. The Urban Access 13 is a hard-wearing, functional and comfortable back, suitable for long days out on location and studio shoots alike, an investment you won’t regret.
