Think Tank Photo, maker of MindShift Gear, has just launched a new series of their Rotation Backpacks which incorporate a rotating belt pack that can house essential camera gear and, best of all, are easily accessed without placing the bag on the ground.

The company is calling the bags the 'ultimate adventure pack', and all in the series feature a rotating belt pack that can house gear, such as a DSLR or Mirrorless body, several lenses, and a variety of accessories. This Rotation180 system uses an integrated magnetic closure on the belt pack lid, enabling camera access from stowed to shooting position in less than three seconds.

To use it, simply rotate the integrated belt pack to the front of your body to access your gear camera. 

The MindShift Rotation Backpack Series is available in three sizes including 22, 34 and 50+ litre capacities. Each backpack includes a camera belt pack, a 10-point adjustable harness system, and room for personal gear.

The smallest, the 22L model with Belt Pack (6 Litres), will fit one ungripped Mirrorless or DSLR camera kit with 2-3 lenses or a 24-70mm f/2.8 attached to the body, with 16 litres of capacity for personal items in the main storage space.

The largest, the 50L+, will fit considerably more gear, including one gripped Mirrorless or DSLR kit with 3-5 lenses or 70-200mm f/2.8 attached along with personal items.

The backpack series can be adapted to carry a tripod, hydration reservoir, ice/mountain axe, trekking poles, and extra camera gear using a MindShift Stash Master photo cube (sold separately).


Seam-sealed rain covers for both backpack and belt pack are available separately.
