MindShift Gear Hive Filter Pouch Reviews
Fits filter frames from Wine Country Camera.
Great case and the sleeves are deep enough to fit the filter frames from Wine Country Camera.
Compact filter pouch if you only need a few filters
This is a great option for carrying a few filters that doesn't take up a lot of room. I have the Lee Filters wallet and looked at the LowePro Filter Pouch. While both have capacity for more filters than the Hive Mini, they both come in at 1 1/2" to 2" thick. The Hive Mini with 4 filters is less than 1/2" thick and slips easily into a smaller bag. The only drawback is that it's hard to extract the 4x6" filters by the edges as the filters slot in with the long edge exposed.
Good fit to protect 4 x 6 filters.� Holds four filters in a compact package.
About what you'd expect.
This product is pretty self explanatory. The quality is good, the design is nearly perfect. If I had to nitpick, the strap could be a bit longer for hanging, and I wish MindShift had a version with six slots. A nice feature is the open space at the bottom of the pouch to allow foreign objects to fall out instead of collecting inside the pouch. The slots are just big enough to both secure the filters and allow easy access to them.
Perfect size for holding rectangular system filters. Lightweight, and fits into backpack style luggage easily.
Useful but possibly not quite enough capacity for me
As usual for MindShift/ThinkTank designs, this is well thought out and does as promoted. I have this for my Lee filter set, and it doesn't really have enough capacity for what I regard as a fairly basic large filter kit for landscapes. I carry two 3 stop solid and three grads. Combined with the holder itself, really need the larger Filter Hive, not the Hive Mini, but I opted for the smaller model since I rarely use the large rectangular filters and the round filters at the same time. The materials are rugged and appropriate, and the zipper pulls are among the best I've ever seen.
I use Singh Ray square/rectangular filters and the pouch is fantastic. I use both size P filters and the larger 4x6 filters - all fit perfectly and the soft interior lining protect the surface of each
Silm and safe
This is a great slim case for about 5 filters. It is well padded and has colored sleeves. Easy to fit into photo bags.
