Review of MindShift Gear’s r180 Panorama Backpack

MindShift Gear creates products for the adventurer in you so that you don’t miss the shot of a lifetime. MindShift Gear, a sister company to Think Tank Photo, is a group of photographers and designers who want to change the way you explore and capture nature. Not only do they work to preserve and protect our planet and natural resources, but they work to preserve and protect your precious accessories as well. For instance, the Rotation 180 Panorama backpack gives you access to your accessories in seconds simply by pulling the beltpack, creating a secure bag around your waist. Whether you’re on a hike through the woods or in a crowded city cramped for space, you can have your camera in your hands, ready to shoot, in seconds! No more fumbling through your bag for a lens or a filter- the Panorama bags make life exponentially easier.
