Accessing gear has never been easier for outdoor photographers and adventurers. The rotation180° Trail is a small, lightweight backpack that employs MindShift’s award-winning rotation technology. Rotate the beltpack to the front of your body in one swift motion and grab your gear without taking your eyes off wildlife or disrupting your creative momentum. No more removing a cumbersome backpack to access camera gear or trail essentials. Now you can hike, mountain bike, ski and bird watch without breaking stride.

My biggest compliment for any product is that I don’t think about it while I’m using it. And I never thought about the rotation 180° Trail while I was riding… This will definitely be my go-to pack when I’m hitting the trails with my camera."
