MindShift Gear’s New Outdoor Photography Filter Nest is Two Bags in One


Our sister outdoor gear company MindShift Gear has just released the Filter Nest, the first dual-purpose round filter case for outdoor photography.  The Filter Nest is two bags in one: a padded, zippered pouch protects delicate filters from dust and scratches in the field and a removable insert allows for compact packing.

 The Filter Nest is belt-mountable and compatible with MindShift Gear’s rotation180° Panorama and rotation180° Professional backpacks for quickly accessing filters while setting up a shot. Plus, the grab-handle with SR buckle enables photographers to hang the Filter Nest from a tripod to suit workflow for rapid filter changes when speed counts.

Photographers rely on filters to create various lighting effects,” said MindShift’s president and lead designer Doug Murdoch. “They need a protective, well-designed case that provides rapid access for quick filter changes. The Filter Nest provides for this quick access, as well a means for compact packing.”
