The charm of the Retrospective 7 is its military ethos: a cross between an army satchel and messenger bag. The fabric is faded and weathered olive green with random irregularities for a worn-in look. It's softer and more flexible than military canvas. Fit and finish are excellent, but the details of the interior are telling: nylon lining to reduce lint, a variety of dividers, pockets galore and end flaps to prevent rain from flowing into the main compartment.

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…

The rear padded compartment fits an iPad or 11" MacBook Air. I stowed my iPad there a few times but it stiffened the bag too much. Without the iPad, the bag hugs my body nicely but with the iPad it feels heavy and bounces as I walk. Luckily the iPad also fits in the front pocket so all is well. Side pockets are big enough for smokes, iPhone or plane tickets. You can hook a sidecar pouch or water bottle on the strap hook above the pocket. And, yes, it fits under airline seats.

WATERPROOFING: Think Tank claims the "fabric exterior treated with DWR while fabric underside is coated with PU for superior water resistance." I haven't seriously tested the water resistance but this bag did well as I ran for shelter during a tropical downpour. I was drenched to the skin but my gear was dry. I didn’t deploy the rain cover and would only bother if I was hiking in the rain.

After using this bag for over four months it has become my favorite shoulder bag. The main compartment is big and deep enough to hold long lenses or, with dividers, shorter lenses and things like clamps and slave flashes below. There are plenty of pockets in various sizes to hold anything from a full sized flash to a Large Giottos Rocket Air Blaster. (But not as airline carry-on; the bag is fine but for some reason TSA doesn't allow the Air Blaster... who knew?) And there are, of course, lots of pockets for pens, notepads, and other accessories I am likely to carry.

The material this thing is made of is remarkable. I think it's something they used to call "cloth". I'm being sarcastic but it is both soft and sturdy. The flap lies flat even with the Velcro completely silenced. (There is a movable flap that covers one side of the Velcro and allows you to adjust how tightly the cover is secured and how much noise it makes when you open it.) The strap, while not overly wide, is very well padded. I've carried the bag fully loaded for hours without it feeling uncomfortable.

The laptop pocket is nicely padded and can easily accommodate a tablet, netbook, or notebook computer. Once I even had to carry a tablet and netbook at the same time.

There are straps at either narrow end of the bag that work nicely with Think Tank accessories such as the Think Tank Lens Changer or any of the pouches that come with the Modular Component Set.

I first started out with the 10, after sizing it up in a local photo store against the 20, I thought it would work well. However, after getting it home I struggled to get the bag to work for my kit: a D7000 with 70-300 attached, a 17-50 2.8 a couple of hard drives, an iPad and daily lunch and other miscellany. It was too big in some ways and too small in others. I like to carry the camera with the 70-300 attached as anything I would use the wide zoom for I would have enough time to swap lenses, and usually not the other way around. The iPad barely fits in the back compartment of the 10 when it is has the smart cover and a Belkin snap shield attached. The 7 is an entirely different bag yet with the same charm that attracted me to the 10 in the first place. The iPad compartment truly is big enough for a MacBook air 11" and therefore capacious enough for an iPad, with excellent padding for it all around. Further I can custom fit the D7000 with the 70-300 attached so it is very snug and protected yet very easily removed for a quick shot. Leaving more than enough room for my extra lens, lunch and hard drives among other small items. It also looks smaller than the 10 in person as I believe it's shaped differently to accommodate the iPad compartment. Another nice discovery is that all 3 internal compartments that can carry things like magazines etc. can also easily fit the iPad, should one prefer to house it inside the bag (unlike the 3 internal compartments of the 10 of which only one can very snugly fit the iPad). I believe this is the result of a different design with the 7 in that it's slightly wider overall.

So far it's sizing up to be my perfect daily messenger bag to and from work as well as a very comfortable and spacious vacation/ travel bag.
