    rotation180&deg Panorama Backpack (Charcoal) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Compromise Great way to carry an slr plus maybe a light jacket and lunch. The camera section will just fit a Canon 5D MK3 with 24-100 attached and a 70-200 f4 IS shoved in next to it. The rotation feature works very well both opening and closing. The pack is fairly small overall but that keeps the center of gravity very close to the body. This thing is built for activity! My only complaint is the divider for top to bottom was cut square and rubbed against my spine in the center. Pulled it out, cut a slight curve with some scissors and it's perfect now. Very well made. Note: Does NOT include all weather cover.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very efficient system, but a little bit small The rotation system of the MindShift Gear backpack is very efficient. I was bored of having to put my backpack on the ground when I was hicking and wanted to change my lens. This backpack solves all my problem. Before buying it, analyse your needs in term of volume. In the same game, there exists also the Horizon backpack. The beltpack is roughly of the same size, but there is a net difference in the main part. I have found the Panorama to be too small and the Horizon more suited for a hike or when going for a 2/3 days week-end.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Design, Beautiful Quality, but.... This bag definitely stands out as a frontrunner in its class. Well made, and refined to function in real-world use, not just onthe showroom floor. The rotating pod is great, though a little stubborn at first....just be patient.The only downside of this bag, is the fit. SInce this bag is for my wife, at 5'6, no worries. If you are over 6ft, then this bag is a bit small for torso length. To remedy that, I would suggest looking at its big brother, the 180 Pro.Enjoy,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top knotch camera bag! I've had this bag for a couple weeks now and I love it! I have mine setup with the insert in the top pouch carrying a Canon 6D with the 17-40mm attached a 50mm and 70-200mm F4. In the rotating portion I have a Canon 60D with a 100mm F2.8 Macro for all those spring macro shots while hiking. Perfect for anyone like me who carries a tripod for those landscape shots but might see something on the way to capture those.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smaller than you think It's a nice backpack and succeeds in doing what it was designed to do. I was able to retrieve my camera from it in about 5 seconds without having to take the pack off. However, be warned that the gear capacity is limited if using full frame cameras. If you want to put gear in vertically (i.e. lens facing downwards), the absolute largest that would fit:- Nikon 70-200 f4 with rear cap removed- Nikon D750 with 16-35 attachedThe bag can fit the above and another small prime lens like a 50 1.8G. If you have a larger body or a longer lens like a 24-70/2.8, you could lay the camera down on its side but then nothing else will fit. If only the dimensions of the camera compartment were about half an inch larger in every direction, it would be perfect. As it is it's OK but extremely tight for my full frame gear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the better backpacks out there One of the better thought-out backpacks available. Really like the the idea that you don't have to remove the bag to get at your gear. Just pull out the rotating pod/bag. Although I did fit my Sony FE 24-240 attached to the A7ii along with a Sony 10-18 lens, it was a tight fit. The pod is not that big. You could always put another lens in the top compartment of the bag, but you wouldn't have room for much else. This is a good backpack for photo-hiking treks as long as you don't try to take your whole arsenal with you. I think I would use this bag more on a warm or hot day when you don't have to carry a lot of stuff. Or the early fall, when you might need a light jacket and rain cap. Just a thought. As others have stated, the hydration reservoir pocket is TIGHT. Overall, I think this bag is an excellent buy. It does take a little practice pulling the pod bag out and subsequently returning it. Once you get the hang of it, it's great. Very practical. Also, a rain cover is NOT included. Now c'mon Mindshift!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary I've been doing nature/landscape/macro photography in remote mostly mountain and rugged coastal areas for twenty-five or so years with a series of high quality photo backpacks, chest bags, waist packs, etc. All the backpacks, even those with side access, essentially only worked by taking them off. So I'd have to use a chest pack if I wanted more immediate access. But the problem with chest packs in rugged terrain is you can't see where your feet are--and most of the chestpack/harnesses are clunky and/or heavy. So this pack is a genuine revelation. For the first hour or so I was frustrated getting the waistpack to swing around, but once I loosened an elastic cord, the waistpack swung around in less than 2 seconds! and went back into the backpack in similar time. Now that I've used the pack almost daily for more than a month, it may take less than three seconds to swing it around and get my camera out and up to my eye. In the waistpack I carry a camera with an L bracket on for moving it quickly to the tripod and my 24-70 lens, with 105 macro len and a small tele in the side slots, plus filters and one lens hood, plus my ipod mini(for remote operations) in the dedicated slot. I use the side rather than the back tripod attachments, and it works excellently. I have a lightweight organizer that fits perfectly in the top pocket for small headlamp, first aid, sunscreen, sunglasses, etc. The upper compartment holds multiple pieces of outerwear, depending on conditions and my waterbottle(s) which I prefer to hydration system. The waistbelt and shoulder straps are well-made and very comfortable wearing all day. When working in the field with the pack off, the waistpack pulls out and goes back in in seconds, though the backpack then becomes top heavy, but really no worse to handle than any photo backpack. Be careful to close the door for the waistpack when putting the pack on or taking it off, or your waistpack can go flying, as I discovered!--the padding on the waistpack kept everything fine All in all this is an excellently constructed bag of very high quality materials that makes shooting in the field as joyous as it can get. It is surprisingly light-weight for its obvious sturdiness. If you have more gear, get one of the larger sizes as 22 liters is not a large backpack or photo pack.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great concept, but bag is to cramped for Like the beltpack idea but it's too small for a full size DSLR body. Also the hydration system is very tight. Could not get the suggested 3 liter bag in. Had to go with a 2 liter.
