Think Tank Photo Naked Shape Shifter 17 V2.0 Reviews

Small footprint.

Great bag, overall. Very good, durable materials. But the small size is what makes it awesome, especially when only carrying a computer on assignment. Walking through crowds like a breeze.

using the think tank modular system this backpack made the trip a pleasure.More pockets, pouch, zippers and all strong, easy to open and close. Fits under the seat and overhead easily. Comfortable on my back even at my senior citizen age. well built. Love the system, not a big fan of velco, which is used in most other bags. I have 5 bags. This one has moved into first place, protects my equipment well. Thanks.

Idea is fantastic, but I was ultimately disappointed

The idea of this bag is fantastic. Its extremely configurable, especially for someone with unusual kit (I carry medium format film gear alongside a digital mirrorless system), and the bag doesnt have the inherent bulk of every other milk-crate-on-your-back photo backpack. However, I disagree with the reviewer who described the bag as small. This bag is still too bulky in my opinion, and I am more than likely going to re-sell my barely-used one. Think Tank should offer a Naked 15 or even a Naked 13 model in more compact dimensions. Every time I look at this bag, it just looks too unwieldy to wear while sightseeing around some city, which is my personal intended use case. (I am not a pro. If I needed to haul gear around for work, I guess then the large size could be a good thing.) One other gripe I have that I think Think Tank should address... They mention in their product video that the bag is also somewhat usable in its compressed configuration. But in order to access the innards, you have to fully unzip the compression zip, and then unzip the main compartment. How about separating these so that the main compartment can be accessed without having to uncompress the bag?

small, convenient, and I can configure at my taste for the kind of expedition.

Very convenient if you have the belt pouches

I have the lens and accessories pouches for the belt system, so this back pack is very convenient to transport in a trip or airport your gear and then at the destination, assembly the belt system. Very roomy and strong.

question

Is there an all black version of this backpack instead of the two-toned version shown in the description?
Asked by: Ben
While not exactly identical (and higher in price), the Think Tank Photo Shape Shifter 17 V2.0 Backpack (Black), B&H # THSSBP17, is the closest option available that would compare to the Think Tank Photo Naked Shape Shifter 17 V2.0 Backpack (Black), B&H # THNSSBP17, that would be all- black in color.

How is this compatible with the speed belt when the built in belt cannot be removed? Do I just need to cut the built in one off?
Asked by: Ryan
Not compatible but the belt is removable or can be hidden out of the way behind the lower back pad. You can wear both but not the way they were intended to be used. Us pack mules don't like to leave anything behind. Enjoy. Hope thus was helpful. P.S. put the scissors away.

question

Is this backpack sufficiently padded to protect gear?
Asked by: Takako
not exactly. You can't really, and don't want to put gear into it that isn't itself inside of something like a thinktank lens pouch or body bag. It's designed for those things to be attached inside the backpack. There are NO thick padded dividers like other backpacks.

question

I know that they vary somewhat, but will the TTP Naked fit under a standard airline seat?
Asked by: Andrew W.
When the TTP Naked is fully expanded, I don't think you can fit it below any airlines seat. However, I recently flew to Tokyo by Economy class and able to leave it in front of my feet for a couple of hours to access my laptop, ipad and wireless headphones, but I guess it depends on which airlines you are on.
