As with all Think Tank stuff this is a very nice bag. Inconspicuous, a little lighter and more efficient than Crumpler; better protection than Domke and very sturdy. But unlike the Retrospective 10, which holds more than you would ever expect, this little guy holds less, at least if you are thinking about a full SLR. It would be great for an M camera outfit or a 4/3 camera but the description that it holds a 5D is really pushing it. Yes, it's possible to get a 5D or a D700 into this bag but the fit is so tight, I was expecting to hear air rush out. Even my Rebel was pretty snug. It needs to be a tiny bit deeper (front to back) and a tiny bit taller. It fit my 5D with 24TS (lens pointed down) but my D700 with 16-35 was too tall.

Still, a super bag. Please Think Tank, can we have a Retro 7 ????

I've been searching for that bag that combines smallish form factor with carrying capacity and ease of use. I finally found it. I routinely carry my Nikon D7000, three lenses and SB600 flash along with small accessories in this bag. The lenses I carry are a combo of any three of the Tokina 11-16mm; Nikon 70-300mm; Nikon 18-105; Nikon 105mm micro; Nikon 35mm and Nikon 50mm. The battery grip on the camera body is a tight squeeze but can be done. The bag has a comfortable carry strap and rides perfectly on my hip. It doesn't get in the way and it's easy to get into and out of. Plus when I'm out on the street I don't look like that dork hauling around the giant camera bag.

I feel like I should have bought the Retrospective 7. I typically carry a Sony 5n with the 18-200mm lens mounted, the 16mm pancake lens with the wide angle adapter in place, and a Canon FD 50mm 1.8 with the Fotodiox adapter and an extension ring. The HVL-F20S flash and the viewfinder go in side pockets. The front pockets have the remote, spare battery, lens cloth, memory cards. It's most everything I need... but there isn't room for one blessed thing more.

My equipment is well protected and accessible, although the front pockets are a little tight. All of the panels inside are Velcro/adjustable, and you get more than enough of them to make most any kind of configuration. The materials and workmanship are excellent and the padded strap is wide, strong, comfortable. It's long enough that you can sling it low off a shoulder or across your body for security.

For street/urban photography, however, I think the Retrospective 7 would actually be less obvious. It's proportions are more like those of a messenger bag. And there's more room, of course. But for a hike or just toting your camera to a place and using it, the Retrospective 5 is just about perfect. The ability to silence the front flap Velcro is perfect for theater photography or other places where you have to be quiet. All in all, a great piece of gear, worth the price.

The charm of the Retrospective 5 is the understated military ethos: looks more like a black ops ammo pouch than a camera bag. Fabric is softer than military canvas and fit and finish are excellent inside and out. The thoughtful details of the interior are especially telling: nylon lining to reduce lint, a variety of dividers, pockets galore and end flaps to prevent rain from flowing into the compartment.

Although padding protection is partial, your gear is protected in the event of a knock or fall. The bottom has closed cell foam padding to protect from butt drops. The top, front and sides lack padding but layers of canvas, pockets and lining are reasonable protection against knocks and scraps.

I prefer to wear my bags sling-style (across chest) for increased security and to distribute the weight across more of my body. I'm 5'8" with slim build and the strap has enough length for it to hang at my kneecaps! Luckily it can easily be adjusted to waist level. However, taller folk should be pleased as the strap has plenty of extra length.

Some reviewers mention this bag lacks waterproofing. However, Think Tank claims "fabric exterior treated with DWR while fabric underside is coated with PU for superior water resistance." I can say it fared well in light rain but you should deploy the rain cover during downpours.

STUFFING IN GEAR: The Retrospective 5 is ideal for a Micro 4/3 system--my Olympus E-P5 and several lenses fit with lots of room to spare--and or a compact DSLR like a Rebel SL1 with mounted zoom kit, small prime and a Speedlite. I tried a 7D with mounted EF-s 15-85 3.5-5.6 IS USM and reversed hood. It was stuffed (flush with the top) but fit.

I tried several bags prior to settling on the ThinkTank Retrospective 5 bag. My kit is a Sony Nex7 and 3 lenses and this bag works well for what I carry. Nice arrangement of internal dividers that are configurable with velcro tabs. One of the dividers has a strip at the top which can be folded at an angle to allow it to support the camera when a large lens is attached. Interior covering is slick nylon rather than the often found softer material and seems to be totally lint-free unlike bags from Crumpler and others that I have tried. Bottom pads are removable and configurable as well.

The bag is well made, quality stitched and well thought out. Nice compliment of pockets, zippered compartments, a key ring clip, business card holder and my favorite feature: the velcro flap closures come with "mute" tabs so the velcro can be covered for silent flap opening. Comes with a rain cover as well. The large outside pocket on the back serves well for a passport, cash and other items.

While no bag is ideal for any application, this one comes close for my light-travel use with the smaller, mirror-less camera.
