I looked high and low for a "discrete" bag that didn't have a bright camera manufacturer's logo on it and could carry all of my necessary items. One note from some of the other reviews I've read and videos I watched on this product (youtube) is that it is not "too big" and although it has been shown to hold a significant amount of gear, I'd rather not have my bag crammed full so that items are hard to find. I put the following items in and had just enough space so that it was not crowded, but basically full: a Canon t2i body with 50mm lens and hood attached (center compartment), a 70-200mm lens w/ hood inverted (right-side of main compartment), my Sony CX550 HD camcorder w/ tripod mount and wide-angle lens (left-side of main compartment), extra batteries and an 18-55mm kit lens (far left-side compartment), 430ex flash (far right compartment), as well as other smaller gadgets such as cleaning supplies, tripod levers, lens caps, etc. With this gear in the bag, everything was evenly spaced and had enough room to quickly get at each piece without needing to remove extra items. Obviously, you can cram more stuff into the bag and likely fit another "Prime" lens easily. There are also at least a half-dozen smaller pockets and two narrow, but wide zipper pockets for manuals, etc. I highly recommend for it's simple, rugged, and thoughtful design. Note that it also includes a raincover just in case...

I love this thing... it's great. Unfortunately I over-estimated how big the Retrospective 10 was and had to return it. I have a 5DmkII with grip, 24-105L, 70-300L, 85L and 100L macro and that was just too much for the 10 to stow. All of that is a bit tight in this bag and I could probably fit another small prime, but it works with room for all your accessories. This bag isn't all that much larger than the Retro 10 but if you want to carry a camera with a battery grip and several lenses you'll want this bag instead.

Unfortunately, it seems it is a business or marketing tactic to make you buy the $20 memory card pouch as there are no separate small pockets under the flap or some other easily accessible area to put extra cards or small accessories in. Also a specific area for filters would be nice as well, but I guess I'm just asking for too much.

The price is high and you get a lot of storage in a very high quality product, but for the price there should be a specific place for memory card storage. It would have been easy for them to put another clear pocket or two under the flap next to the ill-designed business card holder, but they didn't. The plastic pocket for business cards is slightly undersized and way too stiff to hold business cards without damaging them trying to put them in or take them out. The side pockets should also have a bit of stretch to them so you can actually use them for something.

So it's not exactly perfect, and perhaps you're paying extra for the name, but it is a high quality product with plenty of accessory storage (even if it's not all that perfectly thought out). I would recommend this bag to anyone who needs to store a gripped full size DSLR and several larger lenses.

I own a half a dozen camera bags. Some have a specific purpose such as lugging my entire kit to elsewhere to set up shop for a lengthy period of time. Others are for hauling big lenses. I bought the Retrospective 30 (in gray/green) for walking the urban streets in some places where having an obvious camera bag would be dangerous. The Retrospective 30 is PERFECT for this. It is a cross between a messenger bag and a soft-sided briefcase. It is thoughtfully designed and I was able to carry a pro-ish body (Nikon D700) a 16-35 mm wide angle, a 70-300 telephoto, and my favorite lens - the 85 mm 1.4. In addition, I carried a smaller case filled with spare batteries, chargers, digital memory cards, pop-in bubble leveler, remote detonator cable, di-GPS unit, Epson portable hard drive, miscellaneous odds and ends. In the various pockets I was able to carry my iPad, my phone, the built-in rain jacket for the bag, a couple of B&W circular polarizers, a Singh-Ray Variable ND filter, small notebook. And, for giggles, I also included my Panasonic TZ10 point and shoot. I still had room for another camera body (like my D300s, which I did NOT take). This is a heavy kit, no doubt about that, but the incredibly comfortable straps on the bag, the physical design and ease of getting something out quickly and quietly, more than made up for the slightly greater weight than I wanted to be carrying. So far, this is the best "streetwalker" bag I've found for those times when you don't want to be so terribly obvious carrying your stored kit around.

If you are looking for an attractive, discreet, and commodious bag, I recommend the Retrospective 30 without qualifications.

Small enough to be used as a carry-on shoulder bag on most North American airlines, but easily holds a pro SLR and many attendant accessories. Non-descript enough to attract little attention from thieves; it doesn't say "I'm a camera bag ... steal me!"

Works great with other Think Tank products too ... I'm impressed ... this is my new favourite shoulder bag for gear, and the first shoulder bag I've ever purchased that I haven't immediately hated; it's been a month and I still really like this bag.

Thanks Think Tank! I'll be making Think Tank my first choice for all my professional equipment storage and transport needs in future!
