    rotation180&deg Panorama Backpack (Tahoe Blue) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted! I wanted to use my camera and telephoto lens while hiking and birding, but having it around my neck was awkward and storing it in my daypack meant stopping to remove the pack to retrieve it, by which time the bird might have flown. This rotation 180 Panorama Backpack is a dream come true! It lives up to the hype--the beltpack fits my Nikon D3200 camera with Nikkor 70-300mm lens attached and it easily rotates out of the pack for quick access to camera. I can also fit filters and my iPad mini in the beltpack. The pack is very comfortable on my 5'11 frame and so light I hardly feel it when I am only carrying camera gear. Having studied the optional straps to carry a tripod at the side, i rigged my own and am very pleased. Within seconds I can have my tripod up and camera on it to catch pictures of birds. The built in tripod straps on the back of the pack work well if I don't need quick access. I LOVE the blue color! And the space for other gear is perfectly adequate for a dayhike. I highly recommend this backpack to outdoor photography enthusiasts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best camera backpack so far I spent several hours Saturday taking pictures, climbing over rocks and through the woods. With the rotation180 Panorama, I was able to change lenses and filters and use my tripod without ever setting the backpack down. I was able to fit my Panasonic G6 with 14-42 kit lens, Panasonic 45-175mm lens, Oly 60mm macro, and Oly 9mm lenscap into the waistpack with ease. I could probably have fit my old Canon Rebel along with kit lens, 55-250mm, and a prime lens if I still used it. A full frame camera would be a tough fit. The tripod solution was much better than my previous backpack (Kata Bumblebee 210) for my Manfrotto 190XPROB. Carrying the tripod in the side pocket always felt unbalanced. Top pocket fit the rain cover, a padded case with filters, and a memory card case easily. The main compartment was empty on this trip but had space for a jacket, book, flash, etc.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a great product Overall this is a great product. It is lightweight and has a lot of thought put into it. It took me a while to get used to the mechanism for rotating the belt but once I got it down it was easy. I also like the color scheme-it does not really look like a camera bag. I wanted this for a lightweight bag and it fits the bill perfectly. I can carry a camera, 2 lenses and a flash with no problem. It is not the bag to take if you are bringing a ton of gear. It also is compatible with Think Tank belt pouches. It only gets 4 stars from me because at that price I feel like the rain cover should be included. I live in Florida and it rains almost every day in the summer. Every other ThinkTank product I have ever bought has come with a rain cover. They have you over a barrel with this one because you cannot use a standard backpack cover. It would cause a problem with accessing the belt pouch.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A backpack with potential I have given this camera Backpack only 4 stars because it just arrived a week ago. As to fit and finish, it is a great fit. I can carry a D800 with f4 24-120 mm lens attached, along with panorama head, batteries, 3-70 mm filters, remote release, and a few other components in the waist roating belt pack. The upper chamber easily holds a 400 mm lens (in its own case) and there is enough room for several more lenses, snacks and a light jacket without difficulty. The very top pocket can also hold additional components, snacks, etc. I also have a small pair of binoculars in a pouch that attaches to the waist belt. I have not attached a 3 liter camelbak antidote reservoir yet, but have been assured it will fit (time will tell). As to wearing the backpack, the fit is good and comfortable for my 6' frame. Can not tell what the feel is like until I get out on the trail for a long hike, walking around the house it is very comfortable loaded. The down side of this pack is that it does NOT include a rain fly, very greedy of the producers of this product, they are taking lessons from the wrong companies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing This bag is simply amazing, it is the perfect day bag not too big not too small. The swivel compartment can easily house a dslr body with 24-70mm lens on it (plus a few odds and ends) although not quite large enough to accommodate a body with a 70-200mm attached ot it (within the swivel part only, I put my larger lenses up top). but this bag is not really intended for that, this is a day bag, small enough for ease of use, large enough to fit the gear you need (Like I said, I simply put my 70-200 up top, or around my shoulder in sling bag) as far as the main draw of this bag, its swivel compartment. It works flawlessly, it does take a day or so to get use to, nothing else like it on the market. but once you get the hang of it and use to it, its simple, easy, and a pleasure. The bag is very good, I haven't had it for X amount of years yet as it just came out, but it feels and looks like it will last a long time. Everything is very well made on it. There are multiple side straps, compartments, you name it to store everything you need. for its size it has a deceivingly high carry capacity. I use it mainly for hikes, wildlife, or rugged sporting events (tough mudder etc) where I am on my feet all day, but want quick easy access to my gear without having to take my bag off. I can easily fit my body, 24-70, 70-200, a few primes, flash, tripod, camelback, protein bars, trigger releases, flash, all odds and ends with room to spare, and because the bag is so small and tight to the body, it is very comfortable. I would recommend this bag to anyone looking for a small rugged easy to use day bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite photo backback This is my favorite photo backpack for hiking and skiing. The top compartment is also large enough to hold my skins for day trip back country skiing. It adequately holds my Pentax DSLR and 2 lenses - I usually use the 18-135 and carry a prime lens or the 55-300 with it. Able to stay on the back skiing without too much swinging back and forth, which has been a problem with several other backpacks I have tried over the years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really comfortable This is the first camera pack (I own 4) that is really comfy to wear. It holds my Olympus OM-D camera and two lenses in the fanny pack. Some instructions would be nice. There is a long strap in the fanny pack compartment that I do not know how to use. The larger version of this pack is not airplane carry-on legal, but this is large enough.
