The Tour FX features a clamshell access to the main camera carrying compartment. Camera carry dividers in the interior padded compartment facilitate organization. A proprietary triangular webbing Delta Wing Compression system pulls the load onto the waistbelt for better ergonomics of load carry and comfort. The waistbelt tucks away behind the air mesh foam back panel allowing for shoulder bag carry. Highly water resistant PU5000mm, 500d S-Kodra High Tenacity Nylon is used on the exterior fabric panels. Other features include a removable rain cover, detachable shoulder strap with sliding pad, and lens case attachment point.
In 1982, Mountainsmith designers became obsessed with finding a replacement for the poor-fitting packs available at the time. Their quest triggered the idea for the first-ever lumbar pack that subsequently became an outdoor icon. An entirely new product segment was born that efficiently transferred weight to the lumbar area as Mountainsmith’s answer to neck, back and shoulder pain. Mountainsmith now is applying this same technology to the new Tour FX camera pack.
