Created for the professional photographer that wants to blend in with the crowd and remain inconspicuous in any situation, the Think Tank Photo Retrospective 10 Messenger Bag combines the look and feel of "old-school" camera bags with "new-school" features and technology for the digital imaging age.
The Think Tank Photo Retrospective 10 Messenger Bag has a minimalist outer appearance that conceals expensive photo equipment. Inside it carries a gripped DSLR with standard zoom lens attached, or it can accommodate 2-4 lenses in main compartment with gripped DSLR body in front pocket.
Collapsible nylon pockets
Within the Retrospective 10's main compartment, are two collapsible nylon pockets (one on each side). These pockets are tall enough to fit most flash units or other accessories. A hook-and-loop strap can be used to secure the contents or it can be tucked into the pocket for quicker access.
The Retrospective 10 has an organiser pocket inside the main compartment. It gives photographers enough space for small, but significant, accessories necessary for a successful shoot.
The expandable pocket on the front of the Retrospective 10 can be used to carry a spare pro size DSLR body or other photo gear. A small hook-and-loop flap folds over the top of the pocket to secure its contents.
The "sound silencers" underneath the main flap are used to suppress the loud tearing sound hook-and-loop makes while opening and closing the bag. Simply release the sound silencer panels and cover the hook-and-loop strips to prevent the hook-and-loop from contacting. A clear business card pocket, for identification and spare cards, is also located under the main flap.
Hook-and-loop panels securely fastens the main flap down, keeping valuable photo equipment hidden from view.
Wide storage pocket
A wide storage pocket is located on the back of the bag can be used to carry magazines, newspapers, or other paperwork, depending on the size of the bag.
Webbing loops on both sides of the bag can be used to carry some smaller pouches on the bag. Alternatively, a carabiner (not included) can be used to quickly clip accessories to the the sides of the bag as well.
Side pockets on both sides of the bag can be used to carry smaller water bottles and will even fit some shoe-mounted strobe units.
Padded, adjustable canvas strap
A fully adjustable, canvas strap is integrated into each Retrospective bag. For extra comfort, a breathable cushioned pad slides along the strap for optimum positioning. Sections of non-slip material on the pad helps keep the entire strap on your shoulder.
Removable carrying handle
This bag features a removable carrying handle for your convenience.
Seam-sealed rain cover
The seam-sealed rain cover included with the Retrospective 10 was specially designed to keep the carrying handle and integrated shoulder strap outside the rain cover without compromising protection from the elements.
