About Think Tank V2.0

The Think Tank Speed Freak V2.0 Bag is hybrid shoulder bags/belt packs designed for photographers who value versatile and ergonomic camera bags. First and foremost a contoured shoulder bag, the Speed Convertibles keep photo gear readily accessible. The wide opening flip-top design hinges away from the body to rapidly work in and out of the bag. As a shoulder bag, the Speed Convertibles offer durable zippers, a secondary main compartment entry and multiple pockets for small accessories. A cushioned shoulder strap with a long section of padding maximizes comfort while carrying the bag in different positions.

To adapt a Speed Convertible bag as a belt pack, deploy the integrated waist belt which is conveniently concealed in two zippered pockets on either side. Fastening the flexible belt around the waist provides better stability while walking, especially when used in tandem with the included shoulder strap.

This is my first Think Tank purchase. I twisted and twisted on if i should spend this much on another bag, but being the proud owner of a closet full of camera bags by Lowepro, Crumpler and Domke, i gave in and gave them a try. My first impression was WOW. Then i realised that the people who made this bag thinks about what they are going to make, and thaught alot abot the photographer that is going to use it. The quality and craftsman ship on this bag is outstanding, and actually makes it look as if it is as strong as a tank. So this bag manufacture deserves to call themselves Think Tank. It was a pleasure to see that it can comfortably fit my In the centre - Nikon D300s with 17-55 lens attached, hood reversed. to the left side - Nikon 70-300 vr lens and sb900 flash. to the right side - Nikon 35 lens ans Sigma 8-16. The only negative i found on this bag is that it made all my other bags oboslete. Its the best of two worlds A shoulder bag for accessability, with a built in waist strap for security and comfort.

Wears extremely easily. This would otherwise be a 5 star product. Yes, it's pricey. Normally, I don't mind paying more for more quality. It typically works out better overall that way. And, most of the bag is quality. Unfortunately, the mesh on the side that stays against your body is absurdly fragile. See the attached picture. I got the bag a couple of weeks ago. Finally got a chance to use it on a family vacation to Hawaii. After one week of light use, you can see extensive damage in the mesh. We just wore the typical cotton shorts, shirts, and dresses. Otherwise, it was swimwear which should be made of material even more fragile than the mesh. At most, it may have pressed against the leather of my belt, but I wore my shirts untucked so it's unlikely. The rest of the bag still looks brand new, as you would expect after only a week of light use. It's well thought out too. Much better design in all the little details than the Lowepro it replaced. However, Lowepro is far cheaper and our bags still are in great condition with basically no wear showing after years of use. This bag is great, but I really can't recommend it when you're paying that much for a bag that fragile. This would be a problem on any of their Speed Waist Pack lines or any other bag they have that has mesh on the back. I e-mailed their warranty department about it. It's not under warranty because it's damage and not a manufacturing defect. I thought it was damage too. I just thought it was abnormal that it would wear so quickly so badly. Since they feel this is "normal", I thought it was necessary to warn others how fragile this bag is.

With a little thought you can configure this bag to hold almost anything...and then add more. It's depth is it's greatest advantage over others.

Small, but Wow

By

from Sylvania, OH  -  Pro Photographer

Wow, what a bag. I've been using the Think Tank Glass Taxi backpack for years. I really like it and have carried it for weeks at a time around the world in tough situations. It has been great except I keep putting it on the ground to change lenses. Sometimes missing the shot. I was assigned to New Orleans on Halloween and I didn't want a backpack in that crowd. So I choose the Speed Freak. I used the belt strap and the shoulder strap which positioned the bag forward. Nothing could move or swing. I had fast access to my lenses (16 to 35 mm; 50mm and 70 to 200 mm) I had the 24 to 105 mm on the camera. The tight fit against my body and reverse opening lid were very secure. The "slit" zipper on the top was also very nice for secure transfer. The bag is tight for the 16 to 35 mm Canon with a shade. No room for the camera. I had the 600 flash in a side pocket and a bottle of beer in the other. (It's New Orleans on Halloween!) But I would not want to own larger bag of the same design. (too big to bend over) The waist band did give me some discomfort in my thigh muscles after several hours. But I'm old. At the airport I still had my Glass Taxi backpack with Speed Freak hanging from it. By combining the bags, I made the two into a single for TSA regulations of two carry on bags. At one point I used the bags to carry a complete Lumix GS3 kit with lenses on the street. This bag is not large enough to be the entire kit of 4 lenses, a body and flash. It is a great companion. I can't wait to use it at a wedding with just 2 lenses.

Loved at first, then the feet wore out

By

from Charlotte, NC  -  Career

I have a lot of think tank stuff, wallets, multiple bags, two large holsters, a modular belt system/harness, and the Streetwalker HardDrive backpack. This bag is generally smart and really well designed, but after a little over a year the front rubber feet wore out so much that the front nylon part of the case began to scrape the ground and TEAR OPEN. Think Tank, WHO ACTUALLY MAKES FUN of Pelican'sLifetime Warranty in their materials, saying that they are "reasonable" actually told me that 16 months for the feet to wear almost completely away was "reasonable wear and tear." They wouldn't even SELL me a new set of feet. For a case as expensive as this, I expected better. So it's probably good for the occasional vacation traveler, but if you use it daily, it WONT HOLD UP AT ALL. Do what I did and replace it with a Pelican, whose products are pretty bomb-proof and when they do wear out they replace them with new pieces

Deceptive images for this product

By

from Phoenix, AZ  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased this product by looking mainly at the images provided. All images show the product with a harness that is not included. At least one should show it by itself so the customer knows exactly what they are getting for their $17. The product I received was way overpriced. I am hesitant at buying any product from Adorama since I cannot fully trust their advertising. Look very closely!

Use to convert Urban Disguise series bags from shoulder bags to backpacks! Very comfortable when used as a backpack. Very versatile.

Good for smaller laptops

By

from Glendale, AZ  -  Photographer

My need is obvious by the product. Unfortunately, my 17" Dell doesn't fit well inside. The laptop folds the "walls" of shade down because it's not wide enough. I was hoping, as with my Urban Disguise, that my laptop would just barely fit but it's not even close. Unfortunately, I'll be returning it.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JAMES E  It is of a design which can be supported by a waist belt (included). That keep the weight off my bad back. It can also be used with an included shoulder strap eith alone or as a weight distribution aid. The straps are set up such that the pack can be worn on the back and quickly rotated to the front for use. There are three sizes and I obviously chose the size to fit my primary hiking kit.
