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

I would buy this product again and again

I use this belt-pack while I am shooting sports. I also use it when I travel around town. I have been able to fit two cameras (F6 without MB-40) and a D700 with MB-D10 along with 17-35mm and 70-200mm without issue. I also carry an SB-800 in the outer compression pocket. This bag is versatile and that is important to me. I highly recommend this belt-pack and I would purchase it again.

Good bag but it's big!!

By

from Southern MD  -  Photo Enthusiast

I needed a bigger bag to hold my DSLR with the attached grip for vertical shooting. The bag is well built and holds all my stuff but it's big. There is no way I would wear it around my waist as a belt pack. Just too large and bulky. The Speed Demon is great for wearing around your waist. However, it is what I needed so I'll just leave it in the car and carry the camera.

Great bag

By

from NC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Great bag, very versatile. In main compartment I keep my D7000 w/battery grip and 17-55mm lens attached, 50mm f1.8, 70-200mm f2.8, 18-200mm f3.5 and SB-600 flash. Front and side pockets have plenty of room and compartments for all kinds of other accessories and this one came with the card holder case for memory cards and business cards. Very well thought out case. Easy to use as a belt pack and shoulder bag. I often switch between both options as it is quick and easy to do so.

Dorky looking but very functional.

By

from Falls Church, VA  -  Pro Photographer

This thing holds a 11-16mm f/2.8, 17-55mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8, a body, a battery grip, a set of filters, an extra battery, extra cards, two speedlights, a teleconverter, a set of extension tubes, gels, and more. I can hang a benro travel tripod off of the side and climb rocks with the package hanging off over my posterior. I'm sure I won't be wearing that outfit on the cover of GQ but I can port the gear to great vantage points with my hands free and reasonable balance for so much glass and battery. It spins and is reasonably accessible quickly. I don't have much use for the shoulder strap. The rain cover is a great thought. Oh ... and I _doubt_ it will fit a 28" waist. I'm 32" and I have to tighten the straps completely for it to fit.

This is NOW my everyday bag

By

from San Francisco, California  -  Pro Photographer

I needed a bag that was small enough for everyday but could be configurable for whatever I needed. Great Bag Great Design. It has been through dust storms, water (rain), and just about dragged through everything, yet it still holds well and looks great. tough Typical stuff I carry in the main compartment bag: -1Ds mkIII w/ 24-70mm f/2.8 L w/ lens hood ON -70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II w/ hood reversed -580EX II -and another standard sized lens (ie 24mm f/1.4 L II, or 50mm f/1.2 L) There is one secret I noticed only recently after a 1-1/2years of ownership..... there is an external pen pocket. =) This is located in the external pocket just above the lumbar support of the hipstrap. So now I have a pen at the ready without having to "dive" into my bag or unzip anything. The mesh pockets on the side hold a small water bottle AND a rain jacket (if rolled up properly). Very convenient when the weather is "iffy". Like I mentioned before, it does get heavy (if I load it up). However, the Waist belt DOES alleviate much of the weight. I WOULDN'T recommend this bag for extended day use or hiking, especially if you're going to weigh down the bag. Something with two shoulder straps would be much more suited to hiking or extended day.

Great Camera Bag! The Best!

By

from Boca Raton, FL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this bag around my waist, with a strap around my shoulder, if needed, when I go out to photograph for the day. It takes the main stress off of my neck, as I have a bad back and neck. It's a great bag as it has so many pockets that in the beginning, you may forget where you put things! However, you will get organized very quickly. I have had many camera bags, but this one beats all the rest!

Nice bag, a little small

By

from Redlands, Ca  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have a Nikon D-90 with 18-200 and sigma 10-20. It's a tight squeeze to zip the camera with lens attached. I will use this bag for quick trips only. I bought the Speed Racer, which has tons of room for serious use as it holds the camera with lens attached with lots of room to spare for other accessories, such as batteries etc..

Best bag from which to shoot...

By

from Richmond, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This bag is a very smart alternative to carrying gear around in a backpack, mainly because it's too difficult to shoot from a pack that has to be removed every few minutes. I was expecting the Speed Racer to be TOO big compared to its two smaller brothers, but it turns out it's the perfect size. The belt is wide and a little nasty to adjust the first time but once you get the length set it's a breeze to use. Although I'm not a professional and I don't have half a dozen lenses or so, I find that everything I need fits perfectly in the bag with extra room to spare! The addition of the shoulder strap is nice for this reason as the bag can feel a little heavy when fully loaded. Great build, convenient; I'll never go back to shooting FROM a backpack ever again.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
BYRON R  Great bargain on older version of camera bag. Good quality.
Shopper  DOES THIS BAG HAVE A SHOULDER STRAP?
RANDY H  Yes it has a shoulder strap. I strap mine around my waist and have the strap over my shoulder at the same time for extra support. Most of the weight is on my hips this way so it takes a lot of strain off my bad back.
