Comfortably carry your full mirrorless camera system inside this streamlined and stealthy, matte black Urban Approach 15 Backpack from Think Tank. The main compartment features adjustable, padded dividers for organizing two mirrorless cameras with attached lenses, and 5-8 extra lenses or accessories. By removing a few dividers and replacing some camera gear with personal items, you can convert the backpack to a multipurpose day pack. A 15" MacBook Pro Retina stores inside the rear compartment, which opens from the top with dual zipper pulls and has a slip-in, up to 10" tablet pocket.

The main compartment unzips on three sides for easy access and features dual zipper pulls which can accept a user-supplied padlock. Underneath the main compartment lid are two, zippered, accessory pockets for small items such as sunglasses and memory cards. The exterior side of the lid has a zippered accessory pocket for your mobile phone or wallet. Two Slip-in pockets, one on each side, can hold a water bottle or small tripod. Above the tripod pocket is an adjustable, quick-release strap for secure storage.

Carry your Urban Approach 15 Backpack with the top handle, trolley pass-through strap, or padded, shoulder harness. For comfort and stability, the shoulder straps connect with a quick-release sternum strap. To cushion your back and wick away moisture, the pack has a padded, mesh back panel. Locating items under low light is easier with the gray, interior lining. In case of rain, protect your pack with the included rain cover stored inside its touch-fastened storage pouch.

    Urban Approach 15 Backpack for Mirrorless Camera Systems (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Backpack Great backpack for weddings, event, travel and all around use. Can easily carry 2 MFT cameras and 4-5 lenses and 1-2 speedlights. Or you can rearrange into 1 camera system in the upper half and personal items in the bottom, this works well for me. Really love it that there are a couple of pockets for accessories like batteries, filters, tablet and laptop cords, extra camera battery and release cable. The backpack is comfortable on the back and feel lign weigh with the weight distributed on your back. I really like the tablet and laptop storage areas so they where I go and the construction is strong and sturdy.. It looks well mad and built to last..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact backpack for mirrorless camera. This is my fourth Think Tank Photo camera bag and it is beautifully constructed from quality materials. It holds all of my FujiFilm gear with room for some additional accessories or lunch. Curiously, the backpack lacks a business card pocket and although you can lock the zippers for the camera compartment, you cannot lock the zippers for the computer/tablet pocket. It seems like an oversight to me, so I will sew a business card pocket inside the top flap of the camera compartment, and replace the rivets on the zipper leather tabs with eyelets so that one lock can secure all four zipper tabs. It seems fairly simple to me and I am surprised that Think Tank Photo never considered a business card pocket or that a photographer would want to lock the zippers to the computer/tablet pocket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gold-Standard Mirrorless Backpack I've owned a lot of bags, including several backpacks. I just developed a Fuji mirrorless system and couldn't fit it all in my Tenba P211 messenger. So I looked at all the available options and pulled the trigger on this wonder, the Urban Approach 15. To begin with, it's small; that is to say, you can carry it on your back all day. It's very well designed, very secure, ruggedly constructed, and super comfortable. The internal dividers are, as you would expect, infinitely arrangeable and thoughtful laid out. In my UA15, I can easily fit: Fuji X-Pro 2 w/ 23mm f/1.4 and grip Fuji XE-2 w/ 18-55 and grip Sony RX-100 III 16mm f/1.4 56mm f/2.0 90mm f/2.0 55-200 f/3.5-4.8 Fuji MCEX-16 extension tube Fuji EF-42 flash 8 rechargeable AA batteries spare rear caps and body caps threaded cable release 3 filters 58mm, 62mm, 72mm 5 spare batteries (Sony/Fuji) Giotto large sensor cleaner Watson battery charger for Fuji Battery charger for AAs Waterproof cover (included) The external pockets hold very little. The pocket in the lid won't hold a large smartphone. The side pockets will stretch for a water bottle, a tripod leg, or better, a monopod. There is a strap included to fasten a small tri- or monopod. When I travel, I take this backpack so that I can have everything with me. I also bring a shoulder bag and simply offload what I will need for any given excursion. If I need it all, I throw the bag on my back and go. This is a well made, well designed product that is well worth the money. You won't regret it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backpack yet for mirrorless Since switching from Canon to the Fuji X system I've been looking for a bag to carry my full kit. I had tried to retrofit a few Lowe Pro bags I had but they were DSLR based and the smaller stature of the Fuji kit just had stuff getting lost. I'd tried the Ona Brixton and while I loved the looks and styling I hated stacking lenses and the messenger bags were just never wide enough even for the X-T1 with battery grip. I had loved my TT Airport Commuter from my Canon days but the bag was huge for the Fuji kit. Then I found the Urban Approach 15. For me it was like hitting the jackpot. Designed and built like everything TT makes but sized perfectly for the mirrorless kit. I can fit everything I have with room to spare. Currently and X-T1 w/battery grip, X-E2, Rokinon 8mm FE, Fuji 16, 35, 56, 90 and 55-200, Nissin i40 flash, battery pouches for cameras and flash, SD card wallet, battery chargers and any other accessories. If I didn't carry the Chargers I could fit at least another body and 1-2 more lenses. Overall this is the best bag I've found yet for a mirrorless set up. Sized for the smaller system but with all the features of its larger siblings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag For DSLR As Well This is the first Think Tank bag I have owned. I used Tamrac bags in the past, but since they were bought out, I chose to make a change. The Urban Approach 15 is advertised as a Mirrorless Camera bag, but it works perfect for my Canon DSLR gear. I routinely carry either a 7D Mk II or 5D Mk IV with a 100-400mm, 24-70m, 2.8L, a 1.4 X Extender, plus filters, etc. The bag is made well made and is very comfortable to carry with all that gear. I like that it is smaller in size and has a rain cover included. The main zipper is large and sturdy and it also carries my travel tripod nicely. This has become my go-to bag while the rest of my gear is in the Pelican hard case. Don't be put off by the Mirrorless Camera advertising, this is a great bag for anything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Practical & Well Made Both the construction and design of this bag are wonderful. The zipper feels heavy duty and of high quality, as do the other components of the bag. The external material also has a rugged, heavy duty feel to it. Internally, the dividers are capable of being moved around to accommodate just about any mirrorless system set up. I'm able to get a lot of lenses in there, and still have room for accessories. This is not a huge bag, but I didn't want something that was so large I couldn't carry it around for extended times. As an older photographer, the Urban Approach 15 is just about perfect in all regards. Don't let the Urban part in the model scare you away from taking this think out hiking. It's perfect on the trail as well...it can take it and then some.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a camera backpack that fits me! The quest is over! All I needed was a backpack that could hold me 15” laptop and a good section of lenses and misc gear - how hard could that be to find? Well it has taken me years and with the� "Think Tank Photo Urban Approach 15 Backpack for Mirrorless Camera Systems" I finally have a backpack that holds the laptop, camera body, �3-4 lenses AND fits me and looks great! This is an ideal bag for women as it is narrow, elegant and understated. I would buy it again...but I already have it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from almost perfect Bought this after using my company's Think Tank Streetwalker backpack on a shoot. I got this one because it has a laptop compartment and when traveling, I hate carrying two backpacks and wanted to be able to consolidate camera gear, laptop, and other carry-on stuff. I also wanted a bag that I could modify the dividers on the inside to store my a7s with XLR adapter and shotgun mic attached for easy access when shooting video. It works for that purpose - however, I wish the dividers were less specific in shape and more customizable. I ended up using dividers from another bag to make the inside the way I needed it to be. Overall, the bag is durable and comfortable, fits everything, and looks good. Only major downside is the lack of pockets on the exterior, and for some reason, the front pocket is weirdly shallow and doesn't extend all the way down. It fits some batteries and that's about it. And the side pockets could be more useful. Also, I wish I could remove the waist fastener on the straps instead of having it permanently attached. But overall, it's what I wanted, and probably the main bag I'll continue to use for years.
