Think Tanks Retrospective camera bag series has been a big hit for the company. However, for quite some time they have only been available in a color that Think Tank likes to call Pinestone. The color is lovely and has no doubt been a hit with photographers who enjoy earth tones, but there are those out there who like the more traditional shade of black. Think Tank announced today that they will finally start selling their Retrospective camera bag series in black. So, for those of you who have been wanting this, your wish has come true. Check out all the details after the break.
The Think Tank Retrospective camera bag series is well fleshed out with a variety of sizes that should appeal to a lot of photographers. The camera bags are available in a variety of sizes (5, 7, 10, 20, 30) and they are all well priced. All of the bags are soft and form-fitting and have a minimalist outer appearance. There is a zippered opening to main the compartment which tucks-away when not in use, and there are dedicated pockets for tablets or small laptop (size dependent on the bag).
The bags also feature a luggage handle pass-through, a collapsible water bottle pocket, a Hook-and-loop “Sound Silencer,” and additional dividers to break up compartments for smaller lenses. There’s an organizer pocket, a wide back storage pocket, a removable carrying handle, and zippered pockets for valuables and small items. The adjustable shoulder strap with a cushioned non-slip pad should be comfortable, and you’ll also get a seam-sealed rain cover with each bag.
The exteriors of the camera bags feature a durable water-repellant (DWR) coating, a Polyurethane coating, and sand-washed 100% cotton canvas. The zippers are YKK RC Fuse (abrasion-resistant) affairs, and there’s antique plated brass hardware, Nylon webbing, and 3-ply bonded nylon thread. The interiors feature closed-cell foam and PE board reinforced dividers, 210D silver-toned nylon, and a Polyester 300D two-tone twill ripstop liners.
