MindShift Gear PhotoCross 13 overview

  • 1Description

The carbon gray PhotoCross 13 Sling Bag from MindShift Gear is a camera bag that can fit up to a medium-sized DSLR along with two to four lenses, including a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens.

Designed to fit snugly against the body, the PhotoCross 13 can be rotated from one's back to front for easy reach to its camera compartment. Access to the camera compartment is then provided by a top-facing zippered panel with a 180° upward opening. Along the inside of that zippered panel are two zippered, mesh organizational pockets which can be used to store and organize camera batteries, memory cards, or small electronics. Within the camera compartment and towards the side of the sling bag that rests against the wearer is a slip pocket with room for a 13" laptop computer, while four adjustable and removable dividers allow that compartment's space to be configured according to the specific camera equipment placed inside.

Also accessible when the PhotoCross 13 is rotated from back to front, is a zippered pocket located in between the camera compartment and the sling bag's front panel which faces away from the wearer. This pocket can be used as a convenient space for books, notepads, snacks, or packable clothing; and its zipper, like the camera compartment's zipper, includes a large, T-shaped pull. When those zippers are both in the closed position, their pulls are adjacent and can be looped together, further securing the contents of the entire sling bag.

In addition to being worn across the body, the PhotoCross 13 can be carried using its built-in top handle as well as its built-in side handle. This sling bag's adjustable, padded shoulder strap rests on the wearer's left shoulder, extends down the torso, and connects to a stability wing that rests over the wearer's right hip. The stability wing helps to more comfortably distribute weight, and like the shoulder strap along with sling bag's outside rear surface, features a resilient, breathable 3D mesh padding. The padding cushions the wearer, and its elevated structure optimizes air circulation, minimizing perspiration in warm and hot environments.

For an enhanced fit, a tuck-away waist belt is included. When used with the shoulder strap and stability wing, the waist belt helps to form a three-point harness that prevents the sling bag from unintentionally shifting around the wearer such as when traveling over rough or very uneven terrain. Along the PhotoCross 13 opposite its side handle is a large, stretchable pocket that can hold a 32oz water bottle, which can be secured using the cord lock on the pocket's rim.

Featuring a durable nylon and polyester construction, the PhotoCross 13 is built to be weather-resistant and includes a seam-sealed cover for use under heavy rain. Six gear loops along the surface of the sling bag allow for extra items to be clipped or tied to the PhotoCross 13. One pair of gear loops is located above the stretchable side pocket, and two pairs of gear loops parallel each other on both sides of the front panel along its top and bottom. Dual compression straps are provided and can be clipped onto the gear loops so they cross the front panel, allowing larger items such as a tripod, monopod, trekking pole, or folded apparel to be fastened against the PhotoCross 13. The stretchable side pocket can also be used to hold a tripod, monopod, or trekking pole; any of which can be secured under one of the included compression straps affixed to the gear loops positioned above the side pocket.

    MindShift Gear PhotoCross 13 reviews

    PhotoCross 13 Sling Bag (Carbon Gray) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade from ThinkTank TurnStyle 20 The sling is one of my favorite types everyday bags. I've been using the ThinkTank TurnStyle 20 for a few years now but found myself needing a bit more room. This PhotoCross 13 is perfect for me. I can easily carry a Canon 5D IV with 70-300L attached, and two other lenses such as a 100 Macro and Sigma 85 1.4 in the main compartment without overcrowding. Outside pocket is good enough for some batteries, filters, and a bit more. The opening of the main compartment is slightly different from the ThinkTank model in that it doesn't open quite as wide, but after using a few times I don't notice that difference anymore. The material is thicker and the bad appears to be made better that the ThinkTank 20.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Possible winner At first blush I was disappointed that it was not as big (as in larger than my LowePro Slingbag that I have had for 5+ years). �But it turns out that it holds more equipment and allows more convenient access than that standby LowePro. Being a frequent flyer, I am still concerned that it may not be as "translatable" - as in allowing me to use it as a convenient carry-on for books, snacks,etc. when all my camera equipment is in my roller board that I carry on! �But I think it will work well when I need to carry basic equipment and a couple of lenses on a photo shoot. �But I am not sure it will allow me to bring as many lenses as I had expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value - very well-though out bag Every time I need (want) a new camera bag, I research bags and, it seems, always end up purchasing something from MindShift. This bag is another home run. This bag is extremely well made. Right out of the box you can see how much attention was put into the materials and how they focused on the details (the zipper pulls, placement of the handles, store pocket for the waist belt, the detachable tripod straps, etc) when designing the bag. I have a mirrorless kit (Fuji X-T2) and the bag is positively cavernous...I can easily fit the X-T2 with a 16-55 and 4 additional lenses. I wonder if the 10 would have been better suited, but its better to have the room and not need it than to need it and not have it. It took me a while to get the bag adjusted to where it was comfortable, but now that I have, I am confident I could use this for long hikes and day trips without a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found what I was looking for After purchasing a large camera backpack for studio work, I was on a hunt for something small compact that could handle a trek. So I went to my local stores in Toronto. Everything was interesting but nothing caught my eye. Most packs were larger than I expected, and lacked the quality I expected. I am kind of a backpack snob, especially if I spend money. I took a chance on this bag as I couldn't find a place that sold them. After 2 weeks of use I am happy with my decision, this bag is well made, great zippers easy to grab even freezing with gloves on.� I think my future camera bag purchases will always include a look at Mindshift's options. The quality and functionality seem to be on point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch I wanted to transition away from a standard shoulder bag. So far the� Photocross 13 is perfect for my needs. When out shooting street photography I typically walk 4 to 6 miles. Loaded with my Sony a7RIII, 16-35 2.8 GM, 28 f/2, 85 f/1.8, small godox Flash and sometimes a laptop I don't feel the discomfort I used to feel a one sided shoulder bag. Love that I can swing the bag around without taking it off. Even in crowded situations the profile is rather compact. Zipper pulls are really handy when wearing gloves. The hip and shoulder part of the strap are wider and make for a more comfortable/snug fit in those areas. The only negative is that I wish it came with more dividers. Water bottle pouch is a must for me though I wish it were on the other side of the bag.� Just a personal preference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little bag I like this little bag. I use it for everyday us. Its replacing my Tamrac Sling bag that I have been using for more than 18 years. Its a little smaller then that bag but so far i really like it. Its comfortable to carry and It hold my D610 with the 24-70 attached the bottom pocket is big enough to hold my 70-200 with the tele-converter attached. I am also able to carry a flash. The only complaint I have is that with the battery grip attached tot he camera I can't carry my laptop in the bag. Which isn't a big deal I really carry my laptop with me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight solution for wildlife photographers Have loved my Think Tank Turnstile 20 bag for several years but my latest Olympus lens (40-150 plus 1.4 extender) mounted on my EMD 1 mkii wouldn't fit so got the Photocross 13. It does fit on this bag. Carry with me 2 bodies with lens mounted plus additional 2-3 lenses, filters and spare batteries etc, plus love the straps for mounting jacket, tripod etc. Opening gives better access than the think tank but the side shape of the Photocross makes it really only balanced when put down on its base. Love the two grab straps. The water bottle holder a big plus. Probably 1/3 more room than the Turnstile 20 but the same great ease of travel. Great solution in the field; feel really well balanced when fully loaded, good weight distribution and can carry all I want. Highly recommended as an in the field solution.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Try it first next time! Well made bag, holds alot and well thought out except for one MAIN thing.� The shoulder strap is totally unpadded where it fits around the shoulder.� So it digs into your shoulder no matter what you have in the bag.� Not sure what I'm going to do with this bag.� Sending it back to B&H will cost me a fortune.� What a mistake.� I was really looking forward to using this bag on travels.
