Descripción del producto
The Think Tank Retrospective 10 Black Shoulder Bag is a highly organised bag. Ideal for those wishing to be less conspicuous, the Think Tank Retrospective 10 Black Shoulder Bag blends in with the crowd, helping to conceal expensive photo equipment which may be targetted in more recognisable bags by thieves. Hook and Loop "Sound Silencers" on the front flap eliminate noise while opening the bag as a further feature to the Retrospective's inconspicuous nature. Despite its more vintage style, the Think Tank Retrospective 10 is highly modern in its functionality. Featuring an organiser pocket built into its main compartment for pens, note pad, batteries and other essential items. Comfort is also a major priority in the Retrospective with its soft, adjustable shoulder strap with a cushioned non-slip pad as well as a removable short carrying handle for convenience. Protection is also provided with the seam-sealed rain cover against unpredictable weather conditions.

BUILD: While it looks like a weathered army satchel, the canvas is softer and more flexible than military canvas. Fit and finish are excellent inside and out, but the thoughtful interior details are telling: nylon lining to reduce lint, 2 installed dividers with ears, pockets galore and end flaps to help prevent rain from flowing into the main compartment.
The heavy duty strap is two inches wide and sports a soft and grippy shoulder pad. Compared to nylon seatbelt wedding, this strap is on the thick side. Nevertheless, the beefy strap speaks to the overall toughness of the bag design.
Although padding is partial, your gear is well protected in the event of a minor knock. The bottom boasts dense closed cell foam padding and rear padding protects your iPad. The front and sides lack foam padding but layers of canvas, pockets and lining are good protection against light knocks and scraps. The bag’s most unprotected area is the top flap: only a single layer of canvas stands between your camera’s LCD and a falling tripod…
Think Tank claims "fabric exterior treated with DWR while fabric underside is coated with PU for superior water resistance." So no problem for normal rain. If it pours, water will eventually drip inside from along the edges of the flap because the main compartment lacks a zipper. Think Tank thought of that and includes a slip-on rain cover.
The rear zippered compartment is handy to stow documents, magazines or a paperback. It will not fit an iPad but an iPad Mini can easily slide in.
STUFFING IN GEAR: Think Tank claims a pro size DSLR with standard zoom lens attached and 3 to 4 lenses and accessories will fit. Indeed my gripless 5D MKII with 24-105 4L IS USM swim inside. It would fit better with a battery grip or additional divider to snug up the space. With the 5D2/24-105 stowed lens down, there is plenty of room to toss in a Speedlite 430EX, 70-200 4L IS USM and a couple more small primes or zooms. Unfortunately the dividers lack Velcro in the center so it is difficult to subdivide the compartments. Room gets wasted if you don't want nekid lenses bumpin' together.
One thing that pleased me is my 5D MKII with mounted 70-200 4L IS USM fit perfectly stowed lens down! It's flush with the top of the compartment.
A full sized iPad fits perfectly in the front pocket as does a gripped but lensless DSLR.
GOTCHAS: The giganormous Velcro under the front flap is strong but loud. The built-in Velcro cover can silence the noise but nothing is holding your gear inside if the bag tips over. An partial fix: fold the silencing patch to cover 75% of the two Velcro patches. It grips but is weaker and less bothersome. I’d like the option of a plastic latch for those times you need total silence.
Compared to similar sized bags, this bag is heavy. At 3 LB the Retrospective 10 is a pound heavier than my Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home, a more thickly padded bag of similar size. The extra weight is the price you pay for vintage canvas, beefy strap and pockets galore.
FINAL BURB: I am pleased with this bag: rustic but handsome, stealthy, excellent fit and finish, quality materials, rugged and thoughtful design. It’s pricey but boasts excellent storage within a moderate space. The soft canvas molds to your body thereby taking some weight off the shoulder. Great bag for travel and street use.
I store my Canon body with my 24-70mkII attached AND my 70-200 2.8 mkII with ease, and there's still room for more gear inside.
The strap is comfortable for extended wear and easily adjustable, and the velcro will keep the top closed (it has a "quiet mode" too).
The bad is very well made and I'm sure it'll last a long time.
- Quality bag

- Well thought-out
- Small if you're looking to carry A LOT, I'll explain
Think Tank makes some of the best camera/photo/video gear on the market. I bought this bag over four years ago and I still love it to this day. This bag fits my Canon 5D3 + 50mm L 1.2 (without grip) along with a 24-70mm L 2.8 and 70-200mm L 2.8 with ease. If you carry you camera on your shoulder than you can easily fit three lenses in the main compartment. In the front pouch you can carry two full sized strobes and extra batteries if needed. The bag has velcro to close pouches and flaps and zippered compartments for stowing whatever you need to carry. There is also a neat little muter for the velcro so it doesn't stick and make tons of sound when you're in an intimate setting and needing to open the bag in silence. The canvas is thick and durable, if you're into waterproofing bags, the canvas is known to absorb wax well but the bag does come with a weather cover for wind, rain, snow, and sand. The strap of the bag has a non-slip rubberize pattern so it stays on your shoulder. The straps are thick and durable as well.
The dividers in the main compartment are velcro adjustable and removeable, if you want a large open space you can remove all the dividers, if you need more separated spaces you can put as many dividers in there as you have available. This bag is quite pricey but it's a very useful and great bag to have if you're a photographer. I'm sure there are other bags you can buy out there but in my experience, you get what you pay for, and the Think Tank Retrospective 10 is a bag you won't be disappointed you bought.
It looks like a small book bag, yet I easily got my 5D, 70-200/4, 24TS and 17TS inside. There was considerable room left over but things were getting so heavy I decided to quit while I was ahead. This brings me to the only two things I wasn't crazy about. First, being canvas, the bag is 3 pounds, empty. It feels much lighter than the Crumpler bags (and makes better use of the space) but it's still 10 ounces heaver than my more or less equivalent Tamrac bags with their space age material. The other thing is that by design, the bag does not, in any way, seal out dust. On the plus side, there are nice little touches like a hand strap, a pocket for business cards and of course, lots of pockets including one that expands enough to hold an extra SLR body.
So, if you just want quick access to your gear, with a reasonable level of protection and don't want to call attention to yourself, give this bag a try.
First, I want to give you an idea of the equipment that I have. I currently own a 60d with a battery grip, and I generally carry about three lenses and a flash. Those lenses are all pretty small: canon 55-250mm, Canon 50mm, Tamron 24-75mm, and a Canon 18-135. I do not have or carry something bigger like a 70-200 or anything like that. I would imagine it would fit, but it would be pretty tight.
The bag is built very well. It feels like it is made out of nice material. It my understanding that the pinestone and black are made out of different material. The pinestone being more like canvas, and the black being a little bit smoother. It seems like the material in the black would be reasonably water resistant. Think Tank also includes a rain cover if you need some more protection. The rain covers the front and sides of the bag, and it leaves the majority of the back of the bag exposed. I don't think it is that big of an issue, but it is something to consider. Also, the cover does not allow you to get your equipment when it is on. I wouldn't want to shoot in the rain, but my camera is not sealed.
The bag has a big flap that is opened and closed with velcro. The velcro patch on the bag is pretty big. I imagine it is about 3 or 4 square inches. I would feel reasonable having the bag on me when I was in public transportation because no one can sneak into it with me hearing it. But the great thing about the bag is that the velcro can be silenced if you are shooting in a church or museum. The bag allows you to cover up the patches of velcro so when you open the bag, there is no ripping noise. This would be great at a church or museum.
Outside the bag, there are two side pockets. The side pockets did not allow you to carry much of anything in it. I have placed the included rain cover in one of the outside pockets, but I can't imagine fitting anything thicker than one or two inches in the pocket. The bag also has a small loop on either side of the bag so you can expand it with some think tank lens cases or water bottle holder. If I need extra space, it fits my lowepro lens cases.
In addition to the side pockets, there is a large, zippered back pocket that can hold some small items like a kindle or smaller magazines.
Inside the bag, there is an organizational pocket in the front to keep things like memory cards, headphones, pens, wallet, etc. There is also a zippered pocket in the back on the bag for bigger things like a passport or maps. In addition there is a large gussetted pocket in the front, it can hold a lot of things. I put my ipad in its otterbox defender case in it, and it fits comfortably. You could probably put another body in there or a flash. It is a roomy, versatile pocket. And when you aren't using it, it does not take up any additional room. I wish the side pockets were like this big front pocket.
In addition, there are two pouches on the inside of the bag that is perfect for a flash. The pockets have a small strap and velcro to keep it in place. It is very handy.
The shoulder strap is very heavy duty. I imagine it is about as thick as 3 or 4 seat belts. I don't think one would have to worry about it breaking down anytime soon. The shoulder pad is pretty nice, and helps shoulder the load. It is padded and has some non-slip material on it as well.
The only problem, and I am not sure it is even a problem, is that the dividers in the bag are sort of flimsy. The weight of the camera can cause them to collapse a little bit. The dividers have flaps that allow you to cover the top of a section; the only problem with that it makes it difficult to access that section of the bag because the divider is stuck to the bag. I have other camera bags where the top part of the divider is sort of floppy, and it allows for easier access to your gear. This annoyance however can be seen as a plus as it would prevent your gear from spilling out if the bag dumped over. The floppiness of the dividers can also be a positive because it allows the bag to conform to your body making it easier to carry, more comfortable, and less bulky.
I think this bag is a great overall bag. If you were only going to get one camera bag, I think this would be a great one to get. It can expand or get small depending on what you need to carry. I use it when I travel because it can take a bunch of gear, but it is also small enough to take out when you are walking about.
