The black Retrospective 20 Shoulder Bag from Think Tank is a small, discreet and simple bag designed for the photographer who carries a system such as one pro DSLR with a 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom attached to the camera. Or, it can hold a pro DSLR in the front pocket and 2-4 lenses in the main compartment. The interior dividers are customizable to accommodate the gear you carry on any given day.

The large front flap covers the entire bag and prevents anyone from seeing what's inside. The hook & loop closure is unique with its Sound Silencer system that eliminate the tearing sound normally encountered when you open a camera bag. This is especially valuable when you are shooting in quiet venues like courts, wedding services or chess matches.

The inside of the bag contains an organizer pocket that is perfect for a note pad, mic, or small pack of tissues. Two collapsible nylon pockets are inside and are designed to hold a flash or other similar sized accessory.

Outside, an expandable pocket is large enough for a regular size DSLR body. The back of bag has a wide storage pocket that is made to hold collateral material like paperwork, maps or a note pad. Additional webbing loops are found outside to hold some small Modular, Skin or Multimedia pouches. Or, you can attach a carabiner to it for quick access items like keys. Two side pockets will hold small water bottles or even some small shoe-mount strobe lights. Under the main flap, you have a business card holder.

The carry handle is removable and the shoulder strap contains some non-slip material to keep the bag stable while moving. There's also a breathable cushioned pad along the strap to aid in positioning.

For complete protection, there's a neat rain cover that can be rapidly deployed when the weather turns sour. The cover has been configured to allow the handle and strap to extend but not interfere with the security of your gear. The Retrospective is backed by Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

The exterior of each Retrospective shoulder bag is purposefully simple, allowing photographers to inconspicuously blend into their shooting environment
The "Sound Silencers" underneath the main flap eliminate the loud tearing sound hook-and-loop makes while opening the bag. Simply release the Sound Silencer panels and cover the hook-and-loop strips to prevent the hook-and-loop from contacting
A clear business card pocket, for identification and spare cards, is located under the main flap
Hook-and-loop panels securely fastens the main flap down keeping valuable photo equipment hidden from view
An organizer pocket is located inside the main compartment. It gives photographers enough space for small, but significant, accessories necessary for a successful shoot
All the dividers inside the bag are removable so the interior can be customized to any photographer's set of gear
Inside the main compartment are two collapsible nylon pockets (one on each side). These pockets are tall enough to fit most flash units or other accessories. A hook-and-loop strap can be used to secure the contents or it can be tucked into the pocket for quicker access
An expandable pocket on the front of the Retrospective can be used to carry a regular size DSLR body
A wide storage pocket is located on the back of the Retrospective. This pocket can be used to carry small maps, booklets or other paperwork
Removable carrying handle
A fully adjustable, canvas strap is integrated into the bag. For extra comfort, a breathable cushioned pad slides along the strap for optimum positioning. Sections of non-slip material on the pad helps keep the entire strap on your shoulder
Webbing loops on both sides of the Retrospective can be used to carry some small Modular, Skin or Multimedia pouches on the side of the bag. Alternatively, a carabiner (not included) can be used to quickly clip accessories to the sides of the bag as well
Side pockets on both sides can be used to carry smaller water bottles and will even fit some shoe-mounted strobe units
The included seam-sealed rain cover was specially designed to keep the carrying handle and integrated shoulder strap outside the rain cover without compromising protection from the elements

Hello, will this bag accommodate a Canon 7D Mark 2 with a battery grip and lens attached? If so, how many additional lenses could be packed in it?
Asked by: Jerry
Yes. I currently shoot with a Nikon D810 with battery grip. Most often my 70-200 2.8 is attached and in one of the internal compartments is a 24-70 2.8. You could probably stuff a 50 in there as well. It's my favorite event / walking around bag.

Can I use with a Nikon D90, or 7000, or D610 with battery pack attached?
Asked by: Harvey
Yes. I most often carry my D810 with battery pack and a Nikon 70-200 2.8 attached in the center. In one section goes the Tamron 24-70 2.8 and the other goes the SB700 flash and Black Rapid strap. There is some room to spare for a 50 if you want. I have a sling packs I used to use but I like this better as it seems easier for me to swap lenses on the fly during a shoot. The quality of materials and construction is top notch. Unless I am hiking or motorcycling I will always use this bag.

I have plenty of room with my Nikon D600 with my Nikkor 70-210 attached, as week as plenty of room for my 24-85 and 85mm as well. This bag is incredible. Typical Think Tank quality, and looks great as well

question

I was wondering if it's capable of fitting two Fuji X-T2 side by side with 16-55 and 50-140 attached + grip on both bodies?
Asked by: Jackwayne B.
Yes the Think Tank Photo Retrospective 20 Shoulder Bag does actually fit all of these cameras, lenses and battery grips. It does not fit much else but it works.
