MindShift Gear, a subsidiary of Think Tank, has just announced new shoulder bags that they are calling " storm-resistant carrying solutions for the active photographer in virtually any outdoor environment." That's quite statement, but because it is built with high performance waterproof sailcloth panels, strategically placed storm flaps, water-repellent DWR fabric, and a sturdy Tarpaulin bottom, it just might be as tough to defy the elements as any bag can reasonably be. Additionally, it even has a waterproof rain cover included for those particularly hairy storms. Called the "Exposure" shoulder bag, it protects camera gear from the elements and MindShift claims it can withstands the rigors of adventure photography, of which there are many. For those who are fans of the messenger style, this one has design elements that will likely make you quite happy. MindShift says that with ith its cross-body stabilizer strap, the Exposure moves with you while you’re active or is removable for more causal environments. 


The 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.
