Is the Think Tank Turnstyle 20 the equivalent of the MindShift PhotoCross 13? Or are they just two different sling bags? The Turnstyle seems a bit bigger?
I have not used or tested the Turnstyle. Based on pictures I'd say it looks to be about the same size as the Photocross. Think Tank is always generous and provides specs for all their bags, so you could compare inner dimensions and, more importantly, see if the equipment you cant to carry fits.

Having read through this thread and not found the sort of bag I'm looking for, I would like to describe what I now have and I would like:

Main "big" bag is a Lowepro Flipside 400 AW - takes all the stuff (2x K-3 with grips, Sigma 100-300 F4 & 70-200 F2.8 + various small accessories) needed when I go to airshows and the like, (and then there's the old 350 AW in the attic as well).

However, that's too big/heavy for general days out and holidays when I take a Lowepro Hatchpack 22l with the K-30, Sigma 10-20 and 17-70 + a PLM, but that has too little spare capacity for "other stuff"!

So, I'm looking for something similar where access to the camera compartment is against my back for security reasons (Siem Reap market, Cambodia 4 yrs ago - my wife's small normal backpack got "groped", whereas my Hatchpack 22l did not!) and with more space for the "other stuff" - but all I can find are a number of backpacks with camera compartments which take up the entire internal volume of the backpack, and then only from "no-name" brands I've never heard of.

Thus, can anyone suggest something from a decent brand-named supplier which comes anywhere close to my days-out/holidays "dream" bag?

Thanks in advance.

PS: can't get on with messenger bags due to back & shoulder problems (I use a walking stick most of the time), nor with slingshot-type bags as I tried one once and sent it straight back as it was so uncomfortable - so the new bag has to be a small-medium sized backpack

Couldn't find the specs of theTurnStyle at first i thought, but they are rirght there on their site. And the Turnstyle's inner height is a bit bigger 9.3” W x 17.3” H x 5.4” D (23.5 x 44 x 13.7 cm) against 9.4 x 14.2 x 5.5" / 24 x 36 x 14 cm.
But to me the ThinkTank tapers mutch more than the Mindshift. I 'll have a look at them in store soon.
