Think Tank Retrospective 30 Pinestone Shoulder Camera Bag

The Think Tank Retrospective 30 Camera Bag is an interesting choice for transporting your photo gear. While the exterior of the bag looks just like a regular messenger school bag (we like the stealth minimalist looks of the Retrospective 30 camera bag as it doesn’t scream “Look … This guy Has a 3k Camera here” like the Camsafe 100 or the LowerPro Camera Bag), the interior offers a plethora of compartments and pockets to accomodate all your professional photo gear ( up to 2-4 lenses and 2 DSLR bodies or even a 70-200 f2.8 attached to DSLR facing sideways). Another cool feature, the hook-and-loop “Sound Silencers” on the front flap, allows you to open the bag without any noise, which could come in handy when you want to snap an incognito pic.
