The Think Tank Retrospective 5 is a compact Shoulder Bag that can hold a DSLR or mirrorless camera with lens attached and up to 2 more lenses and accessories. Customisable and stylish, the Retrospective has room for an 8 inch tablet and a front organiser pocket and key tether to keep your personal effects in check.

Look Good, Carry What You Need

The Think Tank Retrospective 5 Shoulder Bag fits a DSLR or mirrorless camera and up to two lenses and other accessories. The Retrospective 5 looks decidedly not like a camera bag, with a weathered canvas exterior and vintage looking hardware, you can carry your photography essentials in style.

Customisable Interior and Tablet Sleeve

With an expandable front pocket, you can easily fit an 8 inch tablet, like the iPad Mini. Using the customisable, padded dividers, you can configure the main compartment to fit your camera set-up and other accessories perfectly.

Inner Pockets and Front Organizer

Inside the bag is a zippered inner pocket designed to hold documents or passports, while pockets on the sides can hold a flash or similar sized items. The front organiser pocket comes with a key tether to keep your personal effects safe and organised.

Side Pockets and Webbing Loops

Two side pockets on the exterior of the bag can be used to hold a water bottle or other quick access items. Also present are webbing loops for attaching carabiners, clips, or Think Tank modular pouches like the Think Tank Lens Changer or Water Bottle Pouch.

Velcro Silencer and Dual Cross Buckle

Optional silencers under the front flap allow you to open the bag quickly with the added benefit of no Velcro sound when doing so. Or, for extra security, use the Velcro panels with the dual cross buckle to keep the top flap closed nice and tight.

Cushioned Shoulder Strap and Rain Cover

An adjustable, cushioned shoulder strap allows you to comfortably carry the bag for hours. There’s also a removable carry handle, useful for short term carry or storage. A rain cover is included to protect the bag, while still leaving access to the shoulder strap.
