rotation180° Professional Backpack Deluxe Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Innovative photography backpack The rotating waist pack is ingenious and makes access to frequently use items - body and a few lenses - a snap. The opening on the side facing your back is also an ingenious way to reach larger items in the main compartment. The pack is lighter that I expected which is a plus in terms of weight management. However, I am concerned that the lighter weight fabric may be more prone to tearing than the weight of pack fabrics I am accustomed to. I tend to be hard on my packs and expect them to stand up to the abuse. We'll see how it holds up. I wich some of the clips were Fast-Ex clips rather than spring loaded clips - the former are easier to open and close one-handed. An inconvenience I note is that when the waist pack is rotated to the front it becomes difficult to get the backpack off, requiring rotating the waist pack before undoing the belt. This could have been avoided by having a second quick release clip attaching the belt to the leading end of the waist pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outdoor Photographers LOOK NO FURTHER... I did not purchase this pack through B&H for they did not even carry them back then, but when I saw the they started stocking them I felt very inclined to write a review so pop some popcorn cause here we go. As a landscape photographer for over 15 years now I have had a plethora of bags and still own at least 8 lowepro bags to this day. With the biggest frustration of, well im in the middle of the river, in the narrows, subway, snowy mountains, desert sand I don't want to take my pack off to get my camera out. Living in Southern Utah I am in every element and the worst is having to take your pack off to get to your gear, then came along the Photosport by lowepro and still love this pack but still you have to sling it and hold on to it while trying to manage your equipment. I have never been drawn to thinktanks bags, and I was very surprised to fall completely in LOVE with this pack. The suspension is outstanding, and the factor of accessing all of your gear without taking the pack off is priceless. I have owned several backpacking packs as well like Gregory, rei. Anyway the materials used are top quality and the engineering that went into the design of the whole thing, very, well im lost for words. The tripod suspension genius, water bladder storage segregated compartment very nice, removable padded organizer and yet still plenty of storage and room for daily gear. My first time using this pack was in the Subway and as everyone was scrambling to find places to put there pack down when there is water everywhere mine never left my body, then on the way out it started raining, after about ten minutes it started pouring I pulled the cover out, and not one bit of moisture made it in. You must go to they're website to see for yourself all the features, I highly recommend the deluxe, and I promise you will not regret it, was worth every penny and I don't have much to spare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best backpack for photographers I hike in Arizona with this pack. I carry a Nikon d800e, 70-200 f2.8, 28-70 f2.8, 16-35 f2.8, fisheye lens,2 filters, Gitzo tripod with Sirui ballhead, and 3 liters of water in the aftermarket Camelback bladder. The padded back and straps of the Mindshift 180 are top notch, and make carrying all that gear comfortable. The rotation pack is very roomy, and swivels very well. One thing to be aware of is if you have the tripod secured in the bungee, you will be unable to push the rotation pack all the way back into place. Overall, this is a premium pack, and I would purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever! I have had the Mindshift 180 Rotation for over 6 months, bought it in Palo Alto on a recent trip to San Francisco. It is the best pack I have owned in my 30 year career as a photojournalist. You will not regret it! Dominic Verhulst Belgian photojournalist based in Los Angeles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rotation 180 camera backpack After upgrading to a full frame DSLR, with new lenses to go with it, I needed a larger camera backpack. After doing some exhaustive research on them, and watching countless video reviews, this is the one I decided on. I have been out once since receiving this backpack. It worked quite well. The rotation pack has room for my Nikon D810 with the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 attached, with room for another modest sized lens, and a couple small accessories. While this combination made it pretty heavy, once rotating it back into the base of the backpack and retightening the waist straps, the weight is hardly noticeable. All in all I am very glad I made the purchase. The reason for 4 out of 5 starts is due to a bit of trouble getting the rotation bag fully back into the backpack- the last inch is bit of a struggle, which may be due to the weight of my equipment. Also, I cannot reach the flap that covers the rotation side access once having opened it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pack for outdoor photographers Incredibly quick access to gear while on the go. Pack has enough adjustments to be comfortable for long hikes. The only downside is getting your gear out from the rotation pack when the you're not wearing the backpack (grabbing the camera and hopping out of the car for a quick shot).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Backpack - Even More Incredible Company I'm not one to write a review but when a product comes along that surpasses all of my (high) expectations I relent and start typing. Such is the case with the Rotation 180 Professional Deluxe 38L Backpack/Waistpack made by the fine folks at Mindshift. My wife and I took a two-week trip to Italy to celebrate an anniversary and I poured over backpack reviews beforehand in an effort to find a pack that would allow me to carry everything I needed for the length of our stay. I did not plan to take any luggage. I had the following criteria for my new backpack. It would need to: (1) Hold all my camera gear (2) Hold all my personal gear like clothes, toiletries, etc. (3) Allow me the freedom to shoot without removing it (4) Permit quick and easy access to my camera and gear (5) Accommodate a laptop (6) Accommodate a tripod (7) Have a rain cover (8) Permit a hydration pouch (9) Allow the load to transfer to the hips and away from the shoulders (10) Be comfortable. What a list, right? I hoped to be able to find a backpack that met most of my criteria. I never thought I would find one that not only met ALL of my criteria but even exceeded my wish list. What I didn't count on was that the waistpack would also have a rain cover in addition to the rain cover for the backpack. Also Mindshift has come up with an ingenious way to carry a tripod using straps that allow quick access to it. You'll just have to see it to believe it. Gone are the days when carrying around a tripod is burdensome. I shoot landscapes primarily so I always have a tripod with me. Mindshift is the only company I am aware of that offers this feature in their packs. You can check it out here:@ The backpack performed perfectly on our trip. Our first stop was Venice. We got off the boat and were walking through San Marco Square to our hotel. We came upon an adorable child feeding pigeons with the old church in the background. I quickly rotated the waist pack around to the front while the backpack remained in place and snapped some shots without disturbing the girl or the pigeons. When I was finished I slid the waistpack back into the backpack and we headed on to our hotel. We visited seven cities in two weeks. When we got to our hotel I would remove the waist pack from the backpack and go shooting. When it was time to move on to another city I would slide the waistpack back into the backpack with all my clothes and personal items and head on. If I encountered photo opportunities along the way there was no need to remove my backpack. I just slid the waistpack around, removed my camera, took the shot, reloaded and marched on. My wife was not relegated to holding all my gear. She loved that. I can't say enough good things about this backpack. I now understand why all the reviews I read gave it glowing recommendations. I am sold. Like most photographers I have several camera bags and packs. This one exceeds them all. Not only is the backpack a well designed and well thought out piece of gear but the company itself stands behind its product with great customer support. Bryan and the rest of the Mindshift staff spent a lot of time listening to me and answering all my questions. Kudos to Mindshift on a job well done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my whole approach to gear Just got one for short day hikes and birding. It solves a lot of problems around wanting to carry camera gear comfortably, along with other stuff like water and clothing layers. The quality appears to be first rate, certainly worth the price IMO. There are a lot of options and possibilities so I am just getting started, but no complaints or drawbacks so far, so good. Looks to be a terrific pack for the coming season, and years to come.
