A Serious BackPack for the Photographer


Big Dog
Please take the necessary precaution when considering any excursion into the back-countries. I do not have any invested interests in the company/s below.

About 17 yrs ago i found a camera waist pack that doubles as a day pack and paid all of $20 at the bargain bin. It would be the best camera bag I ever owned. (Lowepro OrionAW[All Weather] attached below)

Fast forward to last year and I need to look into replacing this bag that has been discontinued for many yrs. Here is Mindshift Rotation 180. A newly formed company from the original designers of my previous bag. Pls note, Lowepro is a backpack company that is well established in providing excellent protection and transportation of camera gears. thinkTANKphoto is camera bag company formed from some people at Lowepro. Mindshift is the sister company of thinkTANKphoto...these guys know how to carry stuff.

just what works for me and my dog
