The vision series from Think Tank comes in three sizes 10, 13 and 15, we have received the 15 to take a close look at. The VISION 15 has been created to house professional lenses and ensure your valuable camera equipment is always secure and protected. The outer measures up at 17.3” W x 10.6” H x 6.3” D (44 x 27 x 16 cm) with the inner being 15.3” W x 9.8” H x 5.1” D (39 x 25 x 13 cm), there is a 15” W x 9.8” H x 1” D (38 x 25 x 2.5 cm) laptop compartment, a 11.4” W x 7.9” H x 0.5” D (29 x 20 x 1 cm) tablet compartment and 5.9” W x 7.9” H (15 x 20 cm) phone pocket, this all weighs 2.6 lbs. (1.2 kg) when empty.
The VISION 15 will hold one standard size body with a 24–70mm f/2.8 attached, 2–4 extra lenses, a flash, 10” tablet and a 15” laptop, it will also accommodate a 70–200mm f/2.8 detached. This bag has an internal zippered flap that provides a secondary barrier for a secure closure and protection against both the weather and theft, when not in use it can be tucked away. The base of the bag is made from a durable waterproof tarpaulin, so you can pop it down without the worry of damaging your gear.
Tripod attachment straps are included, as well as a seam-sealed rain cover that can be deployed in the event of bad weather, snow or rain as well as sand or dust storms. The padded non-slip shoulder strap is adjustable and comfortable, there is an expandable water bottle pocket, luggage handle pass through and a reinforced top carry handle, on the inside there is a secure zippered pocket that can be used to hold batteries, card wallets, and other small accessories whilst the layout can be personalised with extra dividers for stacking short lenses. The outer body is constructed from durable and rather stylish weather-resistant 420D velocity nylon with a polyurethane coating, it comes in either Graphite or Dark Olive, both versions look attractive and professional without drawing to much attention to its expensive contents. The Vision 15 is a highly usable bag, tough, secure and with lots of features to allow you to organise and protect professional grade camera equipment whilst out in the field. RRP $139.75
