Mindshift Gear Rotation180 34L Backpack Review


Mindshift Gear is a camera bag manufacturer well-known among hikers and travelers. A part of Think Tank, a company catering to professional photographers, Mindshift Gear have long been recognnized for their innovative ideas.

Chief among those is probably the rotation180 system which was at the core of the first backpacks launched by the company in 2012. These backpacks, first launched on Kickstarter, were a success and let Mindshift Gear expand its line of products.

We reviewed the 34L Horizon backpack a few years back, and the conclusion was positive. Of course, we did note some elements which could be further improved.

In 2020, Mindshift Gear launched a new kickstarter, proposing an improved version of their rotation180 backpacks. Eschewing the names of the previous versions (Pro, Horizon, Panorama), the new bags are now simply called 22L, 34L, and 50+L.

Today we are taking a look at the 34L version. In some ways similar to the previous version, the rotation180 34L is still different enough to warrant its own review.

Read on to see what we thought of this new backpack from Mindshift Gear!
