Mountainsmith Introduces new Packs

Mountain Smith Tanuck 40 Pack

Earlier this month, Mountainsmith introduced the Tanuck 40 and Tanack 10 camera packs in this season’s latest colorway. Designed with legendary photographer Chris Burkard and nicknamed the T.A.N. “Tough As Nails”, the T.A.N. Camera Series is as rugged as it is versatile.

No two adventures are the same. Carry your gear, your way with the Tanuck 40. Whether you’re headed out on a photo shoot, venturing on a day hike, traveling on planes, or simply taking a day at the beach, the pack can be combined with the T.A.N. Series Kit Cubes and Tanack 10 lumbar pack to adapt to every adventure.

Inspired by a climbing haul bag, the weather resistant base panel allows the camera bag to stand up on its own, adding to the usability, access, and gear protection. Combine this with the certifiably durable and water resistant CORDURA® fabric, the storm collar and cord closure, and removable rain cover and the Tanuck 40 earns it’s “Tough as Nails” nickname. For easy travel, store your laptop in the back panel easy access laptop compartment and load up the adventure essentials with the MOLLE style webbing, front panel expansion pocket, and D-Ring attachment points.

Pack your light stands, tripods, water bottles, and accessories in the side panel pockets and stabilize your load with the removable compression straps. If you’re on the move, the removable top lid clips into the shoulder strap mounted D-rings for a chest mount carry option and instant access to your camera, lenses, phone, batteries, and more.

The camera and adventure pack also comes with a hydration bladder sleeve and exit port, dual density shoulder straps with load lifter suspension and increased comfort, an EVA framesheet and Airmesh back panel, and removable waist belt (waist belt compatible with Tanack 10 for lighter loads).

Stay light on your feet and don’t miss a shot with Chris Burkard’s go-to camera carry solution. The Tanack 10 lumbar pack can be worn on its own for day hikes, carry-on luggage, and everyday carry, or it can be combined with the Kit Cubes as a custom-carry camera pack.

The quick release removable, padded waist belt is interchangeable with the Tanuck 40, allowing easy stowage and lighter loads. With a removable rain cover in the base panel pocket and water resistant CORDURA® fabric, the hip pack offers unbeatable durability to keep your cameras, lenses, tripods, light stands, and hiking essentials dry and safe.

The Tanack 10 waist pack comes with a detachable interior accessories bag for cords, chargers, and batteries organized and easily accessible. The interior sleeve will hold your tablet while the zippered front panel and main compartment will pack in your other essentials. Detachable shoulder strap, sliding pad, and Delta Compression System load adjustment also included.
