Last December, I purchased the MindShift Gear Rotation 180 Professional backpack and posted my initial impressions of the bag to my blog (read that article here).
I promised in that review that I'd come back later with some follow-on analysis about the bag after I had a chance to put it through the paces. After all, with a bag this expensive, you want to know how it held up to real world shooting, not just a studio session!
I must say the MindShift Gear Rotation 180 Professional met and exceeded my expectations in every way possible. It has held up beautifully to hundreds of miles hiking and traveling and I have always been able to get my equipment loaded comfortably and easily - no matter what I'm packing! The rotation feature works just as well as advertised and will change the way you think about photography backpacks.
The video review below goes in detail about this bags performance over the past 10 months of use and gives my final impressions of this outstanding bag. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any photographer looking to change their hiking experience - I could have saved alot of money to buy this bag first!
