Think Tank Features

  • Specifically designed for DSLR's
  • Large waistbelt for comfort
  • Reporter's pad pocket
  • Side mesh pockets: Stretchable mesh pockets are designed for items that you need to remove and retrieve quickly while shooting like lens caps. They are also handy for other essentials like sunscreen, lip balm and other small items
  • Stretchable side pockets
  • Front pocket organizer
  • Pixel Pocket Rocket included
  • Inside lid pocket
  • Seam-sealed removable raincover: Rain covers are seam-sealed for protection, similar to outdoor clothing and jackets. This is necessary to prevent the water from leaking into the bag where the raincover is sewn together
  • Removable foam insert: The dividers can be removed from the insert and reattached inside of the bag. Some items like teleconverters, batteries and other photographic and computer accessories simply don't need much protection, so you can reduce the bulk of the bag by taking out the padding

Good Bag

Comfortable bag to wear around and holds just the right amount of gear to be useful. It is a little difficult to get a Nikon D700 in and out of the top zippered access without worrying about not getting the camera fully in and being secure, and being able to quickly get it out. Fortunately, the top also zips open to a much larger opening. Have not added additional pouches.

Great Product

By

from PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Really nice product with a great warranty. Quality construction and materials are used. Holds my Nikon D7000, a 70-300mm zoom lens, a 35mm lens, battery pack, SB400 flash & a bunch of miscellaneous supplies. It will hold the camera with either lens mounted. Many zippered pockets are easily accessed.

Great Bag

By

from East Lansing, MI  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This bag will hold a lot of gear, yet it still feels light weight when stuffed. My only complaint is that the side pockets are not a bit more padded and a little bigger to accommodate a lens. Also, the shoulder strap is a bit in the way of the side pockets, but don;t see how else they could have designed it. Everything else is great. Excellent attention to detail.

perfect bag to shoot out of

By

from Eagle MI  -  Photo Enthusiast

Camera bags are all about compromise. Do you want something small and nimble or something to carry lots of gear? Shoulder bags are handy to shoot out of but are literally a pain with heavy loads. Back packs are great for heavy loads over longer distances but you have to take it off to get at your gear. The Speed Freak addresses these problems well. It is small enough to carry a load of a camera and 1 or 2 lenses as a shoulder bag but if you need more you can pull out the attached waist belt and carry heavier loads in relative comfort. By attaching Thinktank belt pouches you can customize the system to carry just about anything. And best of all you can rotate it from the back or side of your waist to the front when you need to get at your stuff. I usually carry a D300 with Sigma 50-150 2.8 attached, a Sigma 18-50 2.8 and Sigma 10-20, in the bag, and a All The Other Stuff bag for accessories and a Lighting Fast bag for a flash, both attached to the belt, when I want to go with a big load, But, again, you can change it all round as you see fit. One last thought, no matter how you carry it, weight is weight and it all adds up. If your not careful you can end up with a 25 lb load and that isn't fun no matter how you carry it.

Good bag

By

from Overland Park, KS  -  Photo Enthusiast

Nothing is lightweight for D700+70-200/2.8. THis is a great carry bag once you know what be used within it. I tried couple bags for carrying my DSLR daily around, nothing meets my expection. Probably no way to carry D700, 24-70, 70-200, a flash easily. Finally I decide put DSLR under my neck, and put all accessiaries into bag, that works but do not know how to protect my dangling camera.

surprisingly large/well made bag

By

from Atlanta, GA  -  Photo Enthusiast

The construction is great, but for a belt-bag this one holds more than I want to carry all day. I liked it enough to order its smaller brother the Speed Demon.

Fantastic Bag!

By

from Salt Lake City, UT  -  Photo Enthusiast

I've gone through many bags trying to find one that's made well, holds the gear I need while not being too cumbersome, comfortable, and easy to access. This bag does it all. It holds quite a bit for its size and is made very well. I have gotten rid of all my bags except for this one and and a larger Domke bag. This bag is currently holding my DSLR with three lenses, a flash, three filters, three extension tubes, and some smaller accessories. I'm very pleased!

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
TERRY C  Well constructed. Made for the pros. Waist belt was a big factor.
Leia B  Can I have more pictures please? This pictures is not helping to see the belt around the waist. i would like to see it around the waist to have more ideas. Thank you Leia
DONALD Z  This is a very small bag and will hold an 80-200mm zoom horizontally, but there will be no room for a DSLR camera body. At best you can fit 3 lenses in the bag (a zoom and a couple compact prime lenses -- but no camera). YouTube has several video reviews showing how the waist straps work.
Shopper  is this a complete kit(camera & accessories?)
MICHAEL S  No, this is a camera case only.
