since i've been looking for a anti-sling backpack style.. i've narrowed it down to the:

f-stop kenti
tamrac evo 8
lowepro fastpack 250

but i didn't want to have a bag that will make me stand out like a sore thumb in urban locations.. would be weird to walk around with a big ass bag in metropolitan city looking like i'm going hiking.. haha

so for members with f-stop kenti bags.. can you guys post how it would look like on your back? likewise with the evo 8 and the fastpack 250 (i think the 350 would be too big).

thanks in advance!! :)

Not cumbersome at all. What was cumbersome was my Tamrac 6X which I sold to get this one. The ability to swap lenses and get a speedlite from the lower compartment without taking it off is awesome. My favorite pack, but you have to pay for the convenience.

You're welcome. Glad someone else realizes the advantages of this setup.

Did you check Adorama in New York? I got mine there. Or email Think Tank.

The only issue with the rotation is the weight of the back pack, which by itself is 3.5kg

most of those bags you chosen are big e.g evo 8 and kenti, so you are going to stand out from the sheer bulk of them, have you seen the photos of them on ?

I'd look at the Lowepro photosport or the Think tank shapeshifter for a walk around, not sure what kit your carrying but you want the core bag to be as light as possible, so you're not lugging all the extra weight for nothing.

The Rotation weighs 5.5 pounds without added accessories, according to Think Tank's specs. All packs weigh something. The Tamrac Expedition 6, which is the same capacity, weighs 5 pounds.

i like the photosport.. looks very lightweight. but too bad it doesn't have a laptop bag, otherwise it would've been perfect.

you should be able to fit a 13in notebook into the hydration slot, but it's best if you eyeball it in a store

What I liked about the Think Tank 360 is that I can pack all my gear in one bag. Then only take the bottom section with my camera, lens and flash with out having to repack into a smaller bag as I do now.
May not get this bag as everybody is out of stock, even Think Tank, either it's very popular or not selling well. Will have to wait and see.:confused::)

If it weren't popular, they'd reduce the price. They may be making improvements on a newer model. Email or call them.

I frequently took the lower section out and used it as you describe.
