All New Rotation Backpack Series


Building on the success and popularity of our MindShift Rotation180® Backpack series, we're proud to release the next generation of Rotation Backpacks.  Fully funded in under four hours, the Rotation Backpack Series was a huge success on Kickstarter, and now we're releasing this ultimate adventure pack series to photographers around the world.


Rotation180® technology is a patented solution that enables photographers to quickly access their camera, while on the move or in precarious situations, without taking off the backpack. The backpack incorporates a rotating belt pack that houses essential camera gear, including a DSLR or Mirrorless body, several lenses and a variety of accessories. For this latest generation of backpacks, Think Tank designers enhanced the original Rotation180 technology by integrating a magnetic closure on the belt pack lid, enabling camera access from stowed to shooting position in less than 3 seconds.

Nature and travel photographers need quick access to their gear in any situation. They also want to carry heavy gear with the comfort of a backpack. The MindShift Rotation Backpack Series is the only solution that combines the comfort of a technical backpack with immediate access to cameras and more.

The MindShift Rotation Backpack Series is available in three sizes ranging from 22, 34 and 50+ liters of capacity. Each backpack includes a camera belt pack, a 10-point adjustable harness system and ample room for personal gear. Designed specifically for Adventure Photographers, the backpack series can be adapted to carry a tripod, hydration reservoir, ice/mountain axe, trekking poles and extra camera gear using a MindShift Stash Master photo cube (sold separately).  

Adventure Photographers also need a backpack that will stand up to the rigors of outdoor activity, including rugged terrain, inclement weather and the need for ample personal gear. Using advanced construction techniques gained from 15-years of experience manufacturing camera bags, and using rugged materials coated with water resistant polyurethane, the MindShift Rotation Backpack Series will stand up to any adventure. Seam-sealed rain covers for both backpack and belt pack are available separately and are designed to work with the rotating system.
