Think Tank Photo was born in 2005 and have been producing professional style camera bags ever since - designed by photographers who know what you need when out in the field (literally and figuratively speaking). The Retrospective 7 is a good looking bag, in pinewood (that’s khaki between you and me) coloured sand-washed 100% cotton canvas, it has been treated with a water-repellent coating that makes any drizzle you may encounter bead off without soaking into the bag. If that isn’t good enough in heavier showers there is a handy little rain cover that unfolds from its own attached stuff bag (brilliant for stowing it away and keeping everything else dry when the rain does stop) there is a tutorial online as to how to attach this correctly and still be able to use the shoulder strap but it doesn’t take a genius to work it out. Another brilliant touch is the Velcro silencer, such a simple but innovative idea, the main flap is closed with two thick Velcro patches which make it nice and secure, seriously no one is getting in this bag without you knowing as it sounds like you are waxing strips off King Kong when you open it, great for security but not great during a romantic wedding ceremony and it would scare off any animals you might want to snap within a mile radius. There are two little flaps that simply cover the Velcro to make sure your bag can be opened by simply lifting the flap without having to battle the Velcro, this also makes it easier when you are quickly changing lenses and in and out of your bag during a shoot but afterwards you can drop the flaps and engage that extra security whilst travelling. All the details on the bag are high quality, YKK® RC Fuse (abrasion-resistant) zippers, antique nickel-plated metal hardware and immaculate stitching throughout. On the inside we have closed cell foam & PE board reinforced removable dividers and polyurethane backed velex liner & dividers, you can comfortably fit a standard DSLR, 10” tablet, 12” MacBook Air, 24–70 f/2.8 attached, 70–200 f/2.8 unattached and the expandable front pocket can fit an external flash. With collapsible interior pockets, organizer pocket, wide back storage pocket, removable carrying handle, adjustable shoulder strap with a thick cushioned non-slip pad and webbing loops to accommodate modular pouches or carabiner there are many options to customise the bag to whatever situation and gear combination you need. Over all this is a great looking bag, that is practical as well as pretty, with some innovative ideas that you will wonder how you ever lived without. RRP $162.75
