The ThinkTank Photo Retrospective 5 is a small, discreet and simple bag designed for the photographer who
carries a small system (e.g. one DSLR and 1-3 lenses). If you own a
micro 4/3 system or a rangefinder, this is a bag worth considering. A
zippered, inner pocket can accommodate an up to an 8" tablet. The
interior dividers are customizable to accommodate the gear you carry on
any given day.
The large front flap covers the entire bag and
prevents anyone from seeing what's inside.The hook-and-loop closure is
unique with its Sound Silencer system that eliminates the tearing sound
normally encountered when you open a camera bag. This is especially
valuable when you are shooting in quiet venues like courts, wedding
services or chess matches.
The inside of the bag contains an
organizer pocket that is perfect for a notepad, mic, or small pack of
tissues. Two collapsible interior nylon pockets are designed to hold a
flash or other similar sized accessory.
Outside, an expandable
pocket is large enough for a regular sized DSLR body. The back of the
bag has a wide storage pocket that is made to hold collateral material
like paperwork, maps or notepads. Additional webbing loops are found
outside to hold some small Modular, Skin or Multimedia pouches. Or, you
can attach a carabiner to it for quick access items like keys. Two side
pockets will hold small water bottles or even some small shoe-mount
strobe lights. Under the main flap there is a business card holder.
The carry handle is removable and the shoulder strap contains non-slip
material to keep the bag stable while moving. There's also a breathable
cushioned pad along the strap to aid in positioning.
