Mountainsmith Tanuck: Adventure-Ready Modular Pack

Outdoor Photographer may earn a small commission if you buy something using one of the retail links in our articles. Outdoor Photographer does not accept money for any editorial recommendations. Read more about our policy here. Thanks for supporting Outdoor Photographer.

Mountainsmith worked with adventure photographer Chris Burkard to develop its new T.A.N. (“Tough As Nails”) system. The system offers a modular solution—padded cubes with customizable interiors can be used independently or fit into the main compartment of the Tanuck 40 backpack when you want to bring along all of your photo gear.

This approach not only offers organizational flexibility but also adds an extra layer of protection for your camera and lenses. The Tanuck 40 includes a laptop compartment, a sleeve for a hydration bladder and a removable rain cover. List prices: $229 (Tanuck 40); $69 (Kit Cube Large); $59 (Kit Cube Medium).
