Think Tank Photo Speed Freak V2.0 overview

  • 1Description

The black/gray Speed Freak V2.0 from Think Tank is a bit larger than Think Tank's Speed Demon V2.0 - otherwise, it's basically the same rugged, durable and flexible design. Similarly, it boasts a host of features. This is a flexible, compact bag built for heavy-duty, fast use. Whereas the Speed Demon holds 1-2 lenses, the Freak is designed to hold your standard-sized DSLR and 2-3 lenses in its main compartment that opens away from you for both rapid access and security. Opening away from your body means that only you will be able to see inside since the top lid acts as a shield against those around you. For even more flexibility, the bag can be worn as either a shoulder or waist pack - or as a combination of the two. There's even a top grab handle for quick grab moments.

It features a ballistic nylon exterior and YKK zippered pockets. The top contains a zipper that permits you to access your gear without having to unzip the entire top lid - another security feature. There are also multiple storage pockets for smaller items like pens and memory cards.

When worn as a shoulder bag, note that the strap is not only anti-slip in nature but removable for turning the bag into a waist pack. When worn that way, the waist belt contains Think Tank's Modular Rails that permit attachment of Modular, Skin or Multimedia components to increase gear carrying capacity as needed. The waist design contains buckle stops the prevent the belt from moving about while walking, running or trying to get that important shot. However, when worn as a shoulder bag, the waist belt tucks away inside the bag to eliminate the bulk of the straps swinging at your side.

Inside, the top lid is a clear pocket for storing all your small stuff like pens and filters. There's an additional attached lanyard on which you can attach keys or an accessory storage pouch. The front has an expandable pocket that is used for your phone. On the back, a large pocket is there for more small stuff like a note pad, more pens or anything you need rapid access to but want held against your body. On the sides, more pockets allow you to stuff in your gloves or a walkie-talkie.

For complete protection, the bag comes with a rain cover stored within a mesh pocket that is secured by another lanyard. This prevents the cover from blowing away when out in strong winds. The Speed Freak is backed by Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

Carries a standard size DSLR with 2-3 zoom lenses; fits a 70-200mm f/2.8 detached from camera, lens hood reversed
Main compartment opens wide and the lid folds away from the body for easy access to gear. Opening away from your body provides additional security since no one but you will be able to see inside bag
Can be worn either as a shoulder bag or as a belt pack with the Think Tank convertible system
The integrated waist belt disappears by tucking it into zippered side pockets. This unique convertible system is designed to minimize bulkiness while carrying the Speed Demon V2.0 as a shoulder bag
Modular rail on each side of the belt allows attachment of Think Tank's Modular Rotation System components for increased gear capacity. Using the integrated belt with the shoulder strap helps balance weight distribution between the waist and shoulder. Photographers can carry more gear easier and with less discomfort by carrying the bag in this mode
Includes detachable, cushioned shoulder strap
Non-slip coating on shoulder strap prevents strap from sliding off the shoulder
Breathable mesh lining on the back of the bag and integrated belt help keep you ventilated and cool
Metal Buckle Stops on either side of the main belt buckle prevent the belt from loosening past their positions during vigorous movement
A zipper across the top of the bag allows access to small lenses or accessories without opening the main zipper
A clear accessory pocket is also underneath the lid holds small accessories like extra pens, a small multi-tool or a tube of sunscreen
A flat pocket, for lens caps or filters, is inside the main compartment toward the front of the bag
The front organizer pocket keeps important accessories easily accessible. Handy features such as dedicated pen pockets and a built-in lanyard for securing keys or a memory card wallet are standard with the bag
A bellowed pocket is at the very front of the bag for carrying certain items like a smart phone, separately from other gear
Top carrying handle for quickly grabbing the bag when you need to go
Stretchable side pockets with reinforced bases are on either side of the bag. These can be used to carry miscellaneous items like gloves and a hand-held radio
Made with the highest quality materials like ballistic nylon and YKK RC Fuse zippers
A seam-sealed rain cover is included with each bag. It is stored inside a mesh pocket within the front accessory pocket. The detachable blue lanyard (connected to the red fabric loop) keeps the rain cover from blowing away in high winds
Carries a standard size DSLR with 2-3 small zoom or prime lenses

    Think Tank Photo Speed Freak V2.0 reviews

    Speed Freak V2.0 (Black/Gray) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size I bought this bag because I recently purchased a new lens that would not fit in my old camera bag. I fits my Canon 7D with my 18-200mm lens attached and my new Canon 100-400mm II lens perfectly with room to spare. I will be using it for the first time on an Alaskan charter yacht cruise. There is plenty of room for wallet, passport and paper work along with all my camera gear. It has a waist belt and a shoulder strap so should be very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I also do a lot of hiking with my camera gear and like to take a water bottle, some snacks and other misc. items. This bag will be perfect for all my needs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent bag, but be aware of... The Speed Freak is advertised as being able to carry a 70-200 2.8 with hood reversed, a full frame camera with the 24-70 (hood in either position) plus a speed light. While that has been true for a long time, it was designed with Version 1 of the 24-70 lens which is a 77mm diameter. If you have a Version 2 lens which is 82mm diameter, with the same 70-200 & speed light... the fit is extremely tight and makes it very hard to remove your items. I spoke with Think Tank and their design team acknowledged that the Version 2 does make it tighter. Hopefully they will decide to make it larger to fit the current lens sizes. Just be aware of that when purchasing this otherwise excellent bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goldy locks everyday camera bag I had first ordered the speed racer, and while a fine bag, I found it too large for every day use. The speed demon would have been too small, so I exchanged the speed racer for the speed freak. This bag is not too small, and while large enough for my DSLR, and a few additional lenses or a lense and 600 exrt flash, is not too big. The bag is well made, with a few minor quirks: the zipper access on top is useless, I think. It takes a little bit of effort to open the bag from inside out. And finally, I wish the handle was on the middle (instead of on the side). Generally a fine bag and I would recommend to anyone who wants to carry a DSLR with several lenses and a flash with easy access to their gear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting better one iteration at a time The Speed Freak v2.0 genuinely deserves 5 stars as no other competitor offers anything remotely close when it comes to build quality, features and design. I have indeed spent enormous amount of time looking for a larger shoulder bag for events and I highly recommend the Speed line if you are also seeking one. Unfortunately some design flaws still exist and I am afraid I will rate this product 4/5 stars (more like 4.5/5) as I will go over some pros and cons below. Let's start with what's good about this bag and why it stands out: Originally I wanted the Speed Racer v2.0 because I already have a smaller shoulder Kata DC series bag. Eventually my list of equipment grew and I require something larger and beefier so I said to myself why not take the largest size one. To my surprise, the mid-size Speed Freak is actually quite large! The height (depth) of the main compartment really stands out as it can hold a 70-200mm f/2.8 vertically, unmounted with lens hood reversed. The middle section can easily hold a full frame DSLR with 24-70mm f/2.8 mounted, face down while carrying a flash (or small prime) on the other end. This would be a very popular setup for many and everything will fit. In addition to the large, deep main compartment, you also have two mesh pockets for water bottles, two front pockets for accessories and another back slip pocket with velcro. You can really shove all kinds of gear in all directions: front, back, left and right. Don't let the size fool you, this bag holds a lot! Once the main compartment unzips, the bag opens AWAY from the body while worn. I just don't understand why so many bag makers can't get this right. Think Tank Photo (along with Kata) seems to be among the very few who gets it with the Speed and Suburban series. Most shoulder bags have this huge flap that opens via the front. When you pull it upwards, it will obstruct your view of what's inside in addition to blocking access to your gear. The fabric and construction is top notch. The nylon shell is somewhat weather resistant without using the rain cover. The padding is thick enough such that my gear can roll off the stairs without a problem (not that I recommend you to try). All straps, buckles and hardware are high quality. I love the metal plates on both the shoulder and waist straps to hold the length, as straps tend to loosen up with time. The elastic band is also a nice touch to keep the straps tidy. The compromise is the extra 1-1.5 lbs in weight for the bag itself. But when you think about it, an extra pound is nothing once you start loading your camera gear. The waist strap works! The design to wear the bag around the waist along with the shoulder strap is what attracted me to this bag in the first place. The bag gets heavy when loaded and supporting all that weight with one shoulder must be painful. The waist strap will help balance the weight and it will also prevent the bag swinging when you are on the move. What I don't like about the Speed Freak v2.0: The bottom of the bag is unused and I see lots of potential there. Instead of putting the rain cover in the large, front pocket, inspire by the Lowepro design and attach the rain cover flat on the bottom with velcro to free up space. If the rain cover is left inside the front pocket, then include additional loops and velcro straps to carry a small tripod/monopod on the bottom while on the run. Once it is worn with the shoulder strap fully extended, the strap gets in the way of the main compartment zippers. I am developing a habit of grabbing the front handle gently to lift the bag upward to loosen the shoulder strap, then unzip with the other hand. This has been mentioned in many reviews since v1.0 and one gentleman even recommends hooking the shoulder strap to the side pockets' cinch... It might work but I am afraid the cinches are not strong enough. I really don't understand the top horizontal zipper opening that runs across the main compartment. I bet 95% of the people will place their camera body in the middle section with two lenses (or combination of flash/other accessories) on both sides. Alright, so once you pull your camera out, the middle section is now empty. The horizontal zipper is designed to give you quick access without unzipping the whole main compartment. Because your remaining items are located in both left, right extremes, the zipper opening is tiny at the very end! For the love of Jesus I just can't grab my own lens, let alone putting one back. Don't forget you are supposed to have a divider there, so you can't just drag the item to the center and pull it out. But the biggest flaw is the grab handle on the top. My Kata DC bag is half the size but the top handle is twice as thick! The handle on the Speed Freak v2.0 is way too thin and uncomfortable to hold. And since it sits on the edge, the whole bag is unbalanced as soon as you lift it up (consider the weight). Why can't Think Tank Photo put a beefy grab handle right in the top middle? Because this is where the useless horizontal zipper is located! How I would improve for v3.0: - Utilize the bottom part of the bag to either hold the rain cover or small tripod/monopod. - Get rid of the top horizontal zipper! The opening is too small for anything practical and it compromises weather protection due to a separate opening. - Without the top horizontal zipper, the underneath mesh pocket can now be double the size! - Also, now we have space for a much larger and beefier handle right in the middle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Just had it for a week, but first impressions are outstanding. Fits a lot more than one would think. Had my Fuji X-T1 with a 10-24 with a L bracket, a 55-200mm, a 18-55, and the 35 f/1.4 Also had all the normal accessories like spare batteries, SD cards, cleaning equipment. I still had room for one more lens. Very comfortable on the waist and the addition of the straps really distribute the weight evenly. The quick access top opening actually works better than I initially thought, giving you access to some of the lenses that are at the top of the bag. All in all just the right size for most situations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Other Reasons to Buy This Bag Beyond Its Cool Name This is a great bag for carrying a decent amount of equipment on a day trip, but not necessarily your entire supply of lenses, bodies and accessories on an extended journey if you are a serious photographer. For that task, look to the Speed Racer (next size up) by Think Tank or one of their other larger series. The bonus with a small to medium sized bag being that you won't break your back carrying the Speed Freak bag fully loaded. For years I had made do with a smaller bag by Lowepro in the same general design as the Speed Freak zippered top with a flap which opens away from you for quick access while still supported by the shoulder strap. Nothing really to complain about the Lowepro, it was simply too small and pushing the zippers to their limits in order to close it. First impression of the Speed Freak is the quality, very sturdy yet smooth zippers, tough fabric and an excellent comfortably padded shoulder strap, non slip and detachable. The strap length can be easily adjusted on the run by lifting the bag by the outside-top soft handle and pulling the strap in the direction you need. There are also belt attachments hidden in zippered pouches at each end of the bag so the weight can be distributed evenly between your hips and shoulder if needed. The bag includes a rain cover stored in a pocket and the exterior has two zippered and one velcro pocket for narrow or flat items and pull-string pockets at each end for water bottles or the like. The interior is surprisingly generous in size, it is recommended for a standard DSLR with 2 to 3 small lenses but with some creative rearrangement of the padded velcro dividers, you can get a full sized DSLR and telephoto lens plus other lenses and accessories. Currently mine is holding a full size DSLR with attached 85mm lens, a 50mm prime, an 18-200mm zoom, Speedlight flash, spare batteries, charger, small flashlight, business cards, pens, USB cable and still has room for another small lens. Highly recommended. Check Youtube for Greg Cazillo's video review of the Speed Freak, it was Greg's revelation that his Nikon D3 with attached small zoom plus other lenses fit just fine that convinced me I could use this bag rather than a larger size. (Thanks, Greg!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love fine craftsmanship I learned my lesson about buying a bag big enough to fit all my gear, but so big I need a hand-truck just to transport it. I needed something for event photography - something that I could actually walk around with for a half a day without hurting my back. The Think Tank Speed Freak 2.0 is EXACTLY what I was looking for. This thing is superbly crafted, and well thought out. The one thing that is missing from most bags is side pockets - places to put water bottles. This bag has pockets on both sides big enough to hold 16oz Nalgene bottles - PERFECT! The product literature doesn't say that it fits a pro body, but it does. Engineered and built very well. My contents (main compartment): Nikon D800, 20mm 2.8 prime, 50mm 1.4 prime, 85mm 1.8 prime, 110mm 2.5 prime, Pelican 1010 case, rocket blower, extra batteries, and 5 filter boxes (77mm)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag! This is a great bag. I got it to replace a stolen lumbar pack that is no longer made. This is my first Think Tank product and I can see why everyone raves about them. Quality is easily the best of any bag I have owned. Most surprising to me was just how comfortable this bag is and how much it can fit. I was able to comfortably fit the following: EOS-6D with 24-105 f/4L mounted, 70-200 f/2.8L with hood reversed, 85 f/1.8 with hood reversed, 17-40 f/4L, hoods for the 24-105 and 17-40 in the side pockets, and two filters, extra batteries, and memory cards in the front pocket. This bag is very intelligently designed so that there isn't a lot (any) extra space with that load, which is perfect for me - it is exactly the load I want to carry with no extra bulk. For all of that, it was comfortable all day. The shoulder strap is one of the beefiest I have ever seen, and the hip belt is substantial enough that it actually takes a decent portion of the load comfortably.
