MindShift Introduces New PhotoCross 13 Backpack for Mirrorless

The PhotoCross line of backpacks from MindShift Gear is essentially a backpack version of the popular PhotoCross sling bags that have been around for a couple of years.

Now the lineup has been expanded, and a new PhotoCross 13 Backpack joins the existing PhotoCross 15 in the range. Of course this sort of naming scheme is pretty common in camera bags, and you have no doubt immediately deduced that the PhotoCross 15 can hold a 15″ laptop, and the new PhotoCross 13 can hold a 13″ laptop.

All the features remain the same as the larger bag, but the internal volume of the pack is much better suited to small mirrorless systems.


As with all MindShift Gear products, this pack is designed for adventure photographers and a life outdoors.

  • Tripod or jacket carry with included straps
  • Dedicated, padded pocket fits 13” laptop
  • Waist belt is wide and removable, providing flexibility depending on the shoot
  • Tarpaulin bottom panel is heavy duty and waterproof
  • Wide shoulder straps give superior comfort from bodyconforming design
  • Water bottle pocket locks in most 1 liter bottles
  • Back panel with breathable 320G air-mesh keeps the back cool during long days
  • Internal zippered pockets for batteries, memory cards or other small accessories
  • Front pockets for filters, snacks, or a light layer are easily accessible
  • T-pulls are easily gripped with or without gloves
  • Top and side carry-handles
  • Fully-customizable interior dividers for photo or personal gear
  • Seam-sealed rain cover included for downpour conditions
