10 April 2018

MindShift Gear has announced its Exposure 15 and 13 shoulder bags designed with the outdoor photographer in mind. Holding less gear but offering quicker access than a backpack, they can quickly be swiveled to access other lenses and bodies.

The build features high-performance waterproof sailcloth panels, strategically-placed storm flaps, water-repellent DWR fabric and a sturdy Tarpaulin bottom. A cross-body stabilizer strap helps the Exposure move with you and the waterproof rain cover protects your gear when the weather turns on you.

Available in Black and Solar Flare, the $159.99 Exposure 13 can carry a 13-inch laptop while the $169.99 Exposure 15 can accommodate a 15-inch laptop. A 10-inch tablet fits in zippered pocket.

MindShift Gear's "Exposure" Shoulder Bags Offer the Ultimate in Durability and Weather Protection for Outdoor Photographers

SANTA ROSA, Calif. -- There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear. MindShift Gear's new Exposure shoulder bags are storm-resistant carrying solutions for the active photographer in virtually any outdoor environment. Built with high performance waterproof sailcloth panels, strategically placed storm flaps, water-repellent DWR fabric and a sturdy Tarpaulin bottom; the Exposure protects camera gear from the elements and withstands the rigors of adventure photography. And, with its cross-body stabilizer strap, the Exposure moves with you while you're active or is removable for more causal environments. A waterproof rain cover is included when it's time to put the camera away and hunker down.

Exposure shoulder bags come in two models, the Exposure 13 and the Exposure 15 and in two colors, Black and Solar Flare. The Exposure 13 fits a 13" laptop; the Exposure 15 fits 15" laptops. A 10" tablet fits in zippered pocket.

"We believe it is time for outdoor photographers to have the optimal level of weather protection and durability in a shoulder bag," said Doug Murdoch, MindShift Gear's CEO and lead designer. "The X-Pac technology we employed is a four-layer laminated waterproof sailcloth material. It is abrasion resistant and the C6DWR coating meets current environmental concerns and regulations. [!]Many of the large outdoor companies are using this level of DWR coating now."
