Think Tank Photo CityWalker 30 Overview

  • 1Description

The blue slate CityWalker 30 Messenger Bag from Think Tank is a soft, padded multi-functional bag that holds your one standard size body with a 24-70mm f/2.8 attached with 2-4 extra lenses, flash, and up to a 15" laptop held in its own padded compartment. It also accommodates a detached 70-200mm f/2.8 lens.

The bag contains a removable padded insert that, when removed, transforms the bag into one large storage space. This double-edged approach to a camera bag gives you the freedom to carry camera gear or, when the insert is removed, other items such as books or personals.

The bag is accessed by a double security front snap buckle or touch fasteners that feature Think Tank's Sound Silencers to minimize the noise that traditional touch fasteners generate when opened. This will come in handy when you are shooting in quiet venues such as a chess match or courtroom. The front zippered organizer pocket holds everything from cleaning cloths to pens, note pad, lens cap, and other small items. The front pocket is expandable via an easy to use touch fastener.

The overall material is water-resistant and soft providing a body conforming design that makes navigating through crowds and subways much easier. A combination of nylon, polyester, polyurethane and YKK zippers provide strength to the bag. Movable closed-cell interior dividers allow you to configure the bag to suit your gear needs.

The CityWalker is carried by its cushioned, adjustable, non-slip shoulder strap or convenient top grab handle. The bag comes with a seam sealed rain cover that will protect the entire bag when the weather turns against you. Topping off this bag is a business card slot located under the front flap. This will make networking easier when you need to hand your card to someone while on the go. Think Tank backs the CityWalker with a lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

    Think Tank Photo CityWalker 30 Reviews

    CityWalker 30 Messenger Bag (Blue Slate) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Perfect for plane I had a problem. I used my ThinkTank roller bag for my cameras, but ran out of room for other items that I needed to carry on the plane. And I still needed to carry a purse, tablet, etc - things I didn't want to check. This messenger bag solved my problem. It looks like a big purse and fits nicely under the seat, so the size worked for my purpose. It had a front pocket where I could put my wallet, boarding pass, pens, etc. It was wide enough that I could use it for my 17 laptop. And it had all the separators for cameras, which, in my case, was a DSLR & lens, speedlight, and all cords, a mouse, etc. So, it works! camera bag disguised as a messenger bag/purse. Yeah!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look no further, this is it! I enjoy wildlife photo and use this bag for my Sigma 80-400mm os lens plus several old manual focus FD lenses. It fits everything I need, camera body w/ 70-210mm FD, 3 additional lenses, 3 filter pouches, laptop, wired remote, maglite, spare batteries, flash unit and extra batteries (for 2 legged wildlife), collapsable lens hood (for FD's), lens cleaner kit, with enough room left for some snacks. Then there's the outside zippered storage. The only complaint I have is the rain cover should have some velcro type fasteners for quick on and off. Love the padded carrying strap, very comfortable, and there's enough padding inside to protect your equipment, I just wouldn't take this hiking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be careful of size: City Walker 30 Originally, I wanted the City Walker 20. After speaking to a sales rep it was suggested to buy the City Walker 30. The City Walker is a great product. I wanted the bag for travel in Europe. While it holds quite a lot, it was too big. I then ordered the City Walker 10. Again a great product; however, it really holds the camera (Canon 6D) with one lens mounted and one other small lens and a medium flash unit. Other smaller items are easily stored. It is too small for what I wanted. So what did I do? I just ordered the City Walker 20. It is the perfect size for two extra lenses and the camera with lens mounted and a flash. If you are a professional and need to carry an extra body and several lenses, the City Walker 30 is perfect. If you want to carry the bag on your shoulder all day with all the equipment when is too big.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Think Tank bag. There is good news and bad news. The good news it that I purchased this bag at the new reduced price. The bad news is that Think Tank has discontinued the entire CityWalker line of bags so if you want one you better get it now. I originally purchased the CityWalker 10 as an everyday carry around bag for a camera and lens and whatever else I drag around that isn't photo related. It was the best camera bag I had ever owned so I started using it on jobs and I realized that it held an lot of gear. Of course there was one piece of gear that did not fit so I did what comes naturally, I bought the CityWalker 20. This is the bag that I have been using on jobs for a couple of years now. These bags hold a lot more stuff than you would think. I still use the original model 10 bag as a non work bag and I still love it. Did I mention that these bags hold a lot of stuff? So as the cycle of life goes, I now have the CityWalker 30. This bag is big. Like the other bags in the series, it is built like a tank. Thick but flexible fabrics, many zippered pockets and a large stiff padded internal pocket for a computer. Everything with these bags just seems perfect to me. There is a stiff padded internal bucket that has movable dividers and that is where the camera stuff goes. That entire bucket is removable so you can just use the bag as a messenger style bag which is what I'm doing now. The strap is all important with any shoulder bag as you can imagine. The straps on these bags are the best I have ever used, by far. The strap material is strong enough to pull a truck out of a ditch and the shoulder pad is fantastic; not too much padding and just the right width. Also the pad slides on the strap which is really really important. So I love it and like I said, if you want one you better get it now. Think Tank told me that they do not have an immediate replacement or updated version of the CityWalker line. To me, this entire line of bags are by far the best I have ever used. You can't imagine how many camera bags I have owned in the last 40 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BAG When I ordered this bag I was looking for something that had easy access to my equipment. Well, this was the bag to use. When it arrived and I opened the box, I knew it was going to be too big for me. I tried it out with all the equipment I would carry and it felt like I was going on a long trip. The bag is very roomy and could very well be used as a carry on luggage. So, even though I hated to give up all that space, I returned it and ordered the City Walker 10 Messenger Bag. I just wish there was a bag in between these size. Love all the pockets and areas to carry everything. I would recommend this bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought it! I travel the world for business thus I tend to take quite a bit of gear with me so I never miss a shot but my work requires I carry a laptop. I was searching for a bag that could double as a camera/work bag and found it. I was concerned it may be too large when comparing it to my current laptop bag but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived after debating its size for so long. I'm 6'1 so the size fits my frame well, lots of room to comfortably fit a FUll Frame Canon, 3 lens, pocket wizards, flash, batteries, Black Rapid strap, computer, filters, etc... I have most everything in this bag with room to spare and yet it Does Not Look Too Big and the strap is extremely comfortable when fully loaded and the best part is; I can take the camera compartment out, lock it in my hotel safe and use it through the week as a computer bag without anyone ever thinking I have a camera bag. I wish I bought this bag sooner.

    Is it wide enough for pro dslr and/or gripped bodies? 1DX, gripped 7D2, etc?
    Asked by: Andrew D.
    Disappointing this bag will not fit a pro DSLR with a battery grip without removing all the padding which leaves little support.

    Is the rain cover water proof or water repellant?
    Asked by: Robert
    The bag itself is water repellant as all Think Tank bags are on the outside. Inside the bag is another cover that can be deployed to the outside that protects it even further. Because the bag is so big it will never be waterproof as a Ziploc would be, but will work with the occasional downpour.

    Would this hold a gripped 5DIII? (W/ or w/o attached 24-105 f/4L)
    Asked by: Yusuf K.
    Our opinion is it would work poorly with a computer and fine without.

    Will this bag hold a Sony DSC- RX10?
    Asked by: minda m.
    For the camera only, you probably don't need this. It has rooms for accessories, flash, small to medium lens....unless you want to place other items in it. There are side pockets as well for medium size diffuser, reflectors....

    What is a sound silencer front flap ?
    Asked by: Alan
    There's hook and loop (velcro) fasteners in addition to the clip for the top flap of the bag. The silencer flaps cover one side of the hook and loop fasteners so that they don't hook in to the ones on the side of the bag allowing you to open the bag silently.

    Can this bag hold a tripod?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    It could. There is space for a small tripod on either end of the main compartment. Or you could lay across the top.
