Overview
The black Shape Shifter with a gray and blue interior from Think Tank begins as a compact 3" thick laptop case but can quickly expand to hold two DSLRs and three lenses - in addition to your laptop.

The shape shifter features built-in neoprene dividers that keep your equipment separated and safe from clashing / rubbing each other.  The laptop compartment is separate and padded allowing up 17" laptops.  The bag also contains pockets for support equipment including memory cards, batteries and cleaning cloths.  It comes with two tripod straps that will hold your tripod in the bottom front pocket.
The waist belt is removable and the liner on the rear is breathable for added comfort.  ...
