Mind Shift Rotation 22L backpack

This backpack is completely brilliant. It's exactly what I wanted. It's completely comfortable because of all of the adjustable straps. The camera compartment is large enough for my mirrorless camera and two lenses (18-55 and 55-200). You can access your camera in just a few seconds! The top compartment has plenty of space for day hikes. The zippers are perfect. Everything about it is well-made and very thoughtful.

Great features and compact

This is a great backpack that stops all the carry on with using a camera whilst hiking. Now I can hike and not have to worry about stopping and fussing around to take a photo with my DSLR camera. Keeps my wife happy, as she is not constantly stopping and waiting for me. Great spot for tripod, walking poles and excellent water bladder compartment. Takes a little bit of time working out how the rotation system works, maybe better instructions.

Extremely well thought out

Just received my 22L, version 2. I can only speak for my needs, so here goes: Build quality is top notch, materials are just right. My use is for light day hikes but also walking around town, tourista style. Confirmed I can still fit a 70-200mm in the upper portion with room to spare for a modest amount of other stuff. This was a prime consideration for me. Camera portion will fit my DSLR with one lens ready to go (24mm prime) and one for a quick change, say a 100mm). Everyone gets this bag for the quick access to the camera. Phenomenal design. It's as fast as they advertise, so ++++. The magnetic latch is solid but a little awkward at first. Once you get the location and movement, it works nicely. I'm 6' with a broad chest. Adjustability fits me just fine and when loaded, the weight sits nicely on my hips and shoulders. Well balanced. I think I found my new favorite grab and go bag. My gear has already moved in.
