MindShift Gear Rotation180 Professional Deluxe Backpack

The Mind Shift Gear Rotation180 Professional backpack is a backpack with built-in rotating waist pack. Now you can access your equipment without having to remove your backpack, and still have room for your personal belongings - there's even a dedicated space to put a hydration reservoir. The waist pack sits securely and neatly in the back pack, until you need to access your photographic equipment when, with a quick flick of a magnetic clasp, you simply swivel the waist belt round revealing the waist pack. The waist pack and backpack as a whole are ergonomically designed for optimum comfort, even on long hikes. The top compartment can be used for extra photo equipment with additional inserts (sold separately) or for keeping your waterproof, binoculars, sandwiches, etc. in. The Professional model is bigger (approx. 37.5 litres) to allow you to carry more equipment and features a lightweight alluminium frame for strength and support. The Deluxe model also comes with these extras: Attachment Straps, Padded Photo Insert, Top Pocket and Tripod Suspension Kit, with a combined value of £142.50.
  • The rotation180° (r180) is a backpack with a rotating waist pack which allows you instant access to your primary photo equipment, to help you get the image you want. There's no need to remove the backpack, simply pull the integrated beltpack around to your front to rapidly access your gear.
