TanuckLITE 40


Inspired by the Tanuck 40, the TanuckLITE 40 offers the same bombproof construction in a lighter package. Best when paired with Kit Cubes (sold separately) for the ultimate camera carry system.

The same versatility, customization and durability as the Tanuck 40, now with less weight. From adventure travel to local photo shoots, day hikes to days on the beach, the TanuckLITE 40 is the do-everything adventure camera pack. At less than 4 lbs, we use a lightweight, aramid ripstop that ensures extreme durability even in lighter fabric. Plus, with a minimal, removable waistbelt and trimmed weight across the board, we've taken every step to offset the load of heavy photo gear.

For versatility, combine the camera bag with the T.A.N. Series Kit Cubes 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 webbing 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, as well as dual density shoulder straps with load lifter suspension for more efficient carry.
