Think Tank Photo Retrospective 30
Our take on the Think Tank Photo Retrospective 30 by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
The Think Tank Photo Retrospective 30 has a stylish look that wears comfortably all day long, plus plenty of space inside for the serious camera gear you'll need. There's room for two DSLR camera bodies inside, plus up to six lenses or other accessories. Several internal pockets provide space to stash smaller accessories, maps or keys. The exterior fabric is treated with a water-resistant coating, but an included seam-sealed rain cover removes all worry, even in a downpour.

Overview: The Think Tank Photo Retrospective 30 is a soft-sided shoulder bag for two standard-sized DSLRs with attached battery grips (plus 3-6 lenses) or a pro-sized DSLR with lenses. The Retrospective series is designed to not look like a camera bag, with a simple Pinestone-colored exterior that lets you blend into your surroundings. It has a large main flap with large hook-and-loop fasteners to secure the bag's contents. The wide, fully-adjustable canvas strap features a movable non-slip pad that you can position where it's needed.
Dimensions: The Retrospective 30 is sized to fit two standard-sized DSLR systems such as the Canon 5D, or Nikon D700 with an add-on battery grips (or pro-sized DSLRs), and telephoto zoom lens attached (facing down), plus 2-5 additional lenses. You can also carry two gripped DSLR bodies in the front pocket and 3-6 lenses in the main compartment. The dimensions of the bag are:
Materials: The Retrospective 30 is made of sand-washed 100% cotton canvas, with nickel-plated metal hardware and sturdy YKK RC Fuse zippers. All exterior fabric has a durable water repellant coating, and the underside has a polyurethane coating for superior water resistance. The inside features silver-toned nylon, along with a polyurethane-backed Velex liner and closed cell foam dividers.
Features: The Retrospective 30 has the following features:
- The exterior is very simple with a large main flap and hook-and-loop closures.
- For silent operation, the main flap includes "Sound Silencers", which cover the hook-and-loop closures to eliminate the loud "ripping" sound when opening the bag.
- Under the main flap, a clear business card pocket is included for identification and storage of spare cards.
- Two collapsible nylon pockets are included on each side of the main compartment. These pockets are tall enough to accommodate most flash units or other accessories.
- Three movable dividers (2 attached, 1 unattached) let you customize the main compartment as you desire.
- The front pocket is expandable, and can be used to carry a regular size DSLR body, with or without a battery grip.
- A large flat pocket on the back of the bag can be used to carry magazines, a newspaper, maps, owner's manuals, or other documentation.
- The adjustable carrying handle lets you grab the bag and go. The handle is removable if desired.
- Webbing loops on both sides can be used to attach small modular pouches or used with a carabiner to clip on accessories.
- A 2x polyurethane-coated, seam-sealed nylon rain cover is included to protect your gear when the weather gets rough. It is stored in the outer side pocket.
No Rhetoric Warranty: All Think Tank Photo products are covered by a No Rhetoric Warranty. The products are warranted against any defects in material or workmanship for as long as the original owner uses the product. Normal wear and tear is not covered by the warranty.
