The New Think Tank Retrospective Leather Looks Less Like a Camera Bag

Retrospective Leather lowres

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a big new updated to the Think Tank Retrospective series of camera bags–but now we’ve got one. The new design update won’t replace the current Retrospective series, but instead will live along side them as a more premium option. The new lineup is being called the Think Tank Retrospective Leather, and they quite obviously sport leather and seem to have a more messenger bag style shape than the original Retrospective’s more boxy shape.

There are three versions, and according to the press release “The new shoulder bags are designed to hold tablets and laptops in dedicated zipper pockets. The Retrospective Leather 5 holds an 8” tablet; the Retrospective Leather 7 holds a 10” tablet or 11” laptop; and, the Retrospective Leather 30 holds a 10” tablet or 11” laptop.”

More specs from the press release are after the jump.
