Hey peeps. As you have probably seen around the interwebs, the folks at Mindshift Gear the sister company of our beloved think tank photo added a new bag to their award winning Rotating Backpacks with the Higher Volume rotation180°® Horizon™.  If you are familiar with the Mindshift Gear rotation180°® Professional Deluxe, then you’ll know that these mindshift rotation bags mean business on the field. As you can see from my review of the rotation180°® Professional Deluxe, it is surely my favorite outdoor camera bag when a good amount of gear needs to be transported.  Since the rotation180°® Horizon is slightly smaller, it might be a great alternative to a lighter outdoor workflow. Stay tuned for a review once I get my hands on the rotation180°® Horizon
