3.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to like this bag, November 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Think Tank Retrospective 5 Shoulder Bag - Pinestone (Camera)
I hate carrying around a big bag with a lot of gear, so I wanted the smallest that would take my D7000 and 2-3 lenses. The Retrospective 5 is exceptionally well made and well-thought out, but there are 2 issues that made me return it:
1) The interior is cluttered up with far too may pockets and zips, etc. And they take up valuable room and may scratch the camera or lens.
2) It's not waterproof or water-resistant. They provide a somewhat clumsy cover that takes up space in a pocket. Why can't they make it from some waterproof material like the Billingham bags? And this problem is compounded by the main compartment not being secured with a zip; you close the big flap and find the ends of the main compartment are open to the elements.
So I ended up with a Billingham Hadley Pro. Much more expensive, but it fulfills my needs better.
