For those into their wildlife photography (and even those who aren’t), you might recognise the name Moose Peterson as one of America’s best-known wildlife photographers. Peterson has been published in over 130 magazines worldwide, so it only seems fitting that the designers at MindShift (a Think Tank Company) collaborated with him to create the ultimate camera bag. Now, they have collaborated again to re-visit and improve the original model.
The Moose Peterson range can be used by any photographer, and the MP-1 V2.0 isn’t an exception. The Mp-1 V2.0 has a whole host of features to help you keep you gear organised, safe and clean: it has three compartments, one large at 6.8” W x 21.8” H x 6.8” D and two smaller ones measuring at 6” W x 10” H x 6.75” D. All compartments have adjustable walls and Velcro zip pockets, as well as the original 1998 ‘Moose Ears’ auto-close compartment flaps to protect the interior and cargo from dust, spray and wind.
The RC Fuse YKK zips are robust, making it easy to access the bag even whilst wearing gloves. It also features a padded handle on the top and the right side and a webbing handle on the bottom. A seam-sealed rain cover/drop cloth is included for added protection against the elements, and it also has a stow-away dual density foam padded shoulder harness cushioned with air mesh. The shoulder-straps themselves are comfortable to wear over long periods of time, even with a full load.
There is no laptop compartment included in the Moose Peterson MP-1 V2.0 design, which could be an issue for some photographers. However, the room is saves goes to good use; the bag can hold up to 3 gripped DSLRs with lenses attached, 3–5 additional lenses, 2x tele-converter, 1–2 flashes and accessories or 3 gripped bodies and 1 ungripped body detached from lenses, 7–8 standard zoom lenses, 1–2 flashes and a 2x tele-converter. The bag accommodates a maximum lens size of 800mm detached or 600mm attached.
The Moose Peterson MP-1 V2.0 Camera Bag is an excellent camera bag - everything about it is designed around keeping you equipment safe on location, even down the fact that it doesn’t look like a camera bag. RRP $349.99/ £279.98
