Comments about Think Tank Think Tank Retrospective 30-BK Large Shoulder Bag - Black:

As a shoulder cam bag, it's functionally great and looks even better. But like all shoulder bags, don't expect to be carrying this around comfortably if you go on long expeditions. I'm a big fan of TT bags, and this one does not disappoint. Great for storing everything and transporting to events, no doubt... but as already noted, definitely not an all day bag.

Comments about Think Tank Think Tank Retrospective 30-BK Large Shoulder Bag - Black:

I exchanged a Boda Bag for this bag as I needed to be able to carry lenses AND camera bodies as well as flashes and miscellaneous things. This bag carries it all very well. It's comfortable and cool looking. I don't need to lug my roller around for my smaller shoots as I can store 2 D700 bodies, 3 lenses, 2 SB-900s with room to spare. I can't fit my MBP 15" but I can toss my iPad in there.

It's good stuff. I def recommend you check it out if you want a great shoulder bag for your gear to take to small mobile shoots.

Comments about Think Tank Think Tank Retrospective 30-BK Large Shoulder Bag - Black:

I have probably used every bag out there over the years...I am 66. I had to shift back to auto focus from my Leica M gear because of my eye sight. I needed to move from a very small bag (Domke J-803) to something capable of handling a 5D Mark II and three lenses. WOW....was I please with all the room in Retrospective 30, the protection for the equipment, its relative light weight and the VERY quiet appearance...not a camera bag look at all. The ThinkTank folks have thought of every convenient and safety feature. And, there is so much available space, this will be the flight carry on as well. But, the bag isn't huge...just perfect in so many ways. It's a winner in my book.

Comments about Think Tank Think Tank Retrospective 30-BK Large Shoulder Bag - Black:

I love the bag for it can hold two full size bodies (Nikon D3 and a D200 with battery grip. Lenses: Nikon 70-200 mm, 24-70 mm, 17-35 on camera, SB-800 speed light, strobe cable, Honl strobe reflector, batteries. And I still can fit more stuff in there if I wanted to. It also has a place on the cover where you can carry a monopod. Now for the bad, this bag does not offer the kind of padding to protect your gear if you accidently drop the bag. Nor is there any padding on the cover flap. This bag is great for those who need to have access to equipment on your shoulder or nearby. Also, the strap is very durable and padded; you will need it for I can barley handle weight of all this equipment on my skinny shoulder. I have adjusted the strap so bag leans against my lower back which reduces the pressure on my shoulder. The bag also has small pockets and crevices to store pens and other paraphernalia. The best thing about the bag: it does not yell photography stuff inside!
