Jerry - thanks for the info. Does it really swing out and back in as easy as the video makes it look? If you have weight in the upper part of the bag or stuff it full of gear, does it compress or put pressure on the lower part and make it harder to swing out or put back in?

Was this developed in association with Think Tank? They make great bags, and if this is on off-shoot I'm sure the quality is very good.

Thanks for the votes!

Don, it really does work as advertised and the new Panorama pack works even better.

Nature, it fits canon great, it just LOOKS better with Nikon gear! Ha! ;-) actually the Canon folks love it because they can get a mark 3, with 17-40, 24-105 and a 100-400 in the belt pack.

Jerry ~

I can appreciate the time and effort involved in your projects. DonC, Ed Hartouni and others might remember this ad. In the early '70s I helped design and manufacture some of the first hip-suspension external frame backpacks with Alpenlite. We, too were trying to incorporate a way to make cameras more accessible.

Later, in the '90s I designed and built high end golf bags and travel bags with Leonardo Mfg., in Bellevue, WA. Several of the top pro golfers of the day used our equipment.

Best of luck with your innovative designs. The Panorama gear looks good too.

Thanks Keith. Its been a fun and educational process, and amazing how hard it is to take an idea all the way through design and manufacturing, and bring it to market.
