Think Tank Photo 700042 Overview

  • 1Description

The black Skin 50 V2.0 from Think Tank is a lightweight belt pouch designed to accommodate wide and standard zoom lenses ranging from a 14-24mm f/2.8 to a 24-70mm f/2.8 with the lens hood attached. The pouch features an easy throw, elastic drawstring or hook & flap closure that will attach to any Think Tank belt, harness or belt pack.

The Skin 50 is an unpadded, compressible pack that makes storage or packing much more convenient. One of the most fascinating and useful characteristics of this pouch is Think Tank's unique "Sound Silencer" technology. The front flap is silent when opened eliminating the disturbing noise usually associated with any sort of touch fastener. This is especially valuable for anyone who shoots weddings, court proceedings or any venue where excessive noise is frowned upon. Think Tank also makes use of a "Rotate or Lock" system. This permits you to move the pouch anywhere on a belt or secure it one position. This feature permits you to align the pouch to suit your shooting position whether kneeling,  standing or lying prone on the ground.

The interior contains a removable divider that can be used to nest your gear or removed entirely to create a single storage space for accessories or gear. There is also a front pocket that can be used for small accessories like memory cards, batteries or perhaps a map. Inside, there's another pocket designed for a lens cap or even a walkie-talkie. A removable rain cover is included to protect the pouch against inclement weather.

For carrying purposes, the top of the bag has a convenient grab handle and webbing loops that accept an optional strap that will convert the pouch into a shoulder bag. The pouch is backed by Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

    Skin 50 V2.0 (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pouch I purchased the Skin 50 V2.0 along with the pro speed belt in order to carry 1 additional lens. I wanted a simple system to use primarily in the hot months during summer as backpacks and to a lesser degree, shoulder bags, must press against and strap around you, preventing air flow. So with this simple set up of belt and single pouch I can carry the camera in hand with lens attached and 1 additional prime or wide zoom. Think Tank's slim design with little to no padding reduces bulk and allows you to move through a crowd with less worry of bumping others with your gear while still providing protection. The rain flap in the zippered pouch pads the bottom and the included padded divider can either separate 2 small prime lenes or be used to protect a single lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pouch for my belt! I have one of these and is really great. Now I carry all my expensive stuff with me when I'm working. It can hold my lenses, recorders, led lights... also the tiny pocket in the front is great to keep the cards or batteries safe and in place. It's great the silence option, so you don't make any noise in quite places like the church when you are shooting a wedding. I bought one last year, and I'm buying the same again, so I can carry more things with me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my mobility. Think Tank's slim design with little to no padding reduces bulk and allows you to move around with less worry of bumping others with your gear while still providing protection. I use this and other pouches for my light meter, and SB-900 flash with remote coiled cord attached to my D800. I holster the strobe while adjusting shooting angle and composition, then retrieve the strobe for off camera flash. Other pouches are added to the think tank thin skin belt for convenient mobility on shoot. A nearby Think Tank bag has the rest of my gear as needed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice for accessories and small cameras Think Tank pouches are really good in general. This has useful pockets for battery / business cards, keys etch. It can be work on a belt, even pants belt (although a little wide). The pouch can be used for compact cameras, or a lens, flash etc,  Easy to open / close. Id give 5 stars if it came with a shoulder strap (there are 2 loops for it) I bought it on sale and it was a very good price. These can be good also to put camera equipment in a bag that is not specific for cameras.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and useful product works exactly as expected but was not easy to attach to Think Tank shoulder bag. However, once that was complete, it holds the extra equipment just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent The Skin 50 holds my Canon 70-300 USM IS zoom with the lens shade reversed with the Skin 50 divider leaving room for a neck strap or other items. It will also hold my 8x42 binoculars. I put the Skin 50 on my belt. My 18-135 IS lens is on the camera body. If I want to use the 70-300, it is easy to change lenses. The Skin 50 is light and folds flat when empty. It provides sufficient protection and is much more compact than the foam padded cases.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality Perfect size for carrying a small lens. I use it mostly for either carrying a 135/2 or 35/2, whichever one is not on my camera at the moment, while photographing events.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Its amazing how inexpensive these are. The construction, pockets, rain cover, and the ability to silence the velcro are amazing. Tons of though.
