Hiking

Thinktank Rotation 180 34L Backpack

(1/1)

Like most camera-specific hiking bags, there really is no way to organize your gear this way and maintain the easy access. So, there is a trade-off for the rotational quick access. There are a lot of ways to attach and configure gear to the outside of the bag, which does help to move some of the heavier bits to better locations.  You can break the bag down into three main sections: the ROTATION 180° 10L waist pack, the main 40L compartment, and the external pockets and attachment points

It's probably not the best hiking bag but it's rugged enough to handle it. The luggage pass through slot in the back is a great additional to piggy back the backpack off a rolling suitcase handle. The only thing I wish this bag has was a hidden magnetic back slip-pocket, which is featured in the Nathan, Sheppard, and Lark. That pocket comes in handy to store a wallet or phone securely

Carry-on

Thinktank Rotation 180 34L Backpack

For me, the 34L is plenty bag for my photo trips - and it fits in most overhead bins (check those regional flights ... smaller planes are always a challenge)

Comfort

Thinktank Rotation 180 34L Backpack

(1/1)

You can also use the pouch on the left side of the bag. There is a strap on the side to secure the top of the tripod, lashing it to the side of the bag. Heavier tripods may skew weight distribution, though. Wide shoulder straps distribute the back weight and a padded, breathable back make the Rotation 34L Backpack comfortable
