I bought this one on sale a few years ago, since I seem to have Camera Knapsack Acquisition Disorder. Anyways, while I meant for it to be a bag for carrying kit when shooting from the car, I've since taken it on planes to two separate desert excursions where my "do-it-all-backcountry" F-Stop Gear bag couldn't go on the plane.While you may think this is only for urban environments, I've had it in the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuauan Deserts, on the beaches of the Pacific Ocean and in 5 US desert states and 4 US national parks, full of red baby-powder sand. The sand just comes off this bag somehow, and my lenses and cameras have always been perfectly coddled inside this bag, from rain, ocean, sand, deserts, drops and thuds.This bag carries a huge amount, works well to vent heat from your back, and takes a licking and keeps on ticking. This TT bag is as well built, if not better built than most, if not all bags I've seen. Buy this and know that it will go on airplanes, it will hold your glass and take being dropped (twice) from the back of an SUV, will protect in rain, in desert, in heat and cold.

Nice bag but could be better

I brought this bag to carry most of my equipment in one bag. These include Nikon 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 300 mm (f4), TC1.4, and my 4x6 filters and filter adapter.

The things I like are that its well made, very comfortable, and built to last. Its also roomy. However, the bag's layout unevenly skews the padding leaving very little room on one side for things fatter than a flash or similar item. This leaves the space poorly utilized with filters, flashes, etc while leaving all the heavier lenses on the right. You can adjust the separators/padding to gain some additional room on the thin side but not a whole lot. I wish they split the space evenly on both side.

The second item I did not like is that the bag is ~1-2 inches deeper than it needs to be (probably to accommodate the more heavier laptops). This makes it appear as if one is walking with a fat suitcase on their back.

Although I'd recommend this bag, please carefully consider your use before you buy. When you spend this kind of money, you should get exactly what you want.

Great Bag

Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

I bought this bag to travel to Africa to go on safari. I wanted something that would hold a lot of gear BUT would adhere to the small internal flight restrictions.
I was able to fit tons of stuff in the bag;
1 Nikon D800 body griped, 1 Nikon D800 gripped with nikon 80-400mm lens (attached), nikon 70-200mm, nikon 24-70mm, 2x Lacie rugged mini HDDs, go pro, SB-900, various batteries, chargers and cables and a nintendo switch. It was great and the weight distribution was amazing.

***** The One downside is the "water resistant" jacket that comes with the bag is S&!@. I visited Victoria falls and my bad was soaked. now i just carry a simple plastic bag around ******

Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

I love this bag already and I've only had it a few weeks. It holds everything I need with ease and is still comfortable to wear. All my lenses and audio equipment fit comfortably along with my laptop. It's very well made and should last for many years to come. I am very satisfied with bag and I believe I will still be satisfied in many years to come.

If I had any negative comments, it would be that the pouches to hold additional adapters or chords are a little small. Other than that, things are great!

I have not used the backpack yet but intend to during summer vacation. I have put in all of the gear that I plan on taking and it fits easily with lots of room to spare. My primary goal was to find a bag that could hold a tripod internally and this one can. I will be taking a dslr with grip, flash, tripod, laptop and 4 lens. Still have a lot of room to pack keys, cell phone etc. Looking forward to using it as a carry on.

Aptly Named

Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

This is my first product from ThinkTank and the first thing that comes to mind is how appropriate the company name is. This backpack is clearly very well thought out and built like a tank. Sure I could nitpick the side pockets being of limited use, or the fact that it holds so much that it becomes quite heavy, but it is as close to e perfect travel backpack, for my needs, as I have come across.

Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

This bag is very well made, very well organized and customizable with removable inserts. This bag holds my Nikon D500 with a battery pack and a 200-500mm Nikon zoom lens ( attached/ unattached to the body). Five other lenses including three other zoom lenses, battery charger, hoods, and filters and lens cleaning accessories. Outside and inside pockets for batteries, SD cards, etc. Convenient monopod or tripod strap attachment. This bag is high quality throughout. I would purchase this product again.

Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

I have two of these bags and use them to carry (and protect) JVC GY-HM600/620 cameras. One is my personal travel bag and has flown with me all over the country. Room enough for the camera, power supply, computer & power supply, mouse, extra hard drives, camera rain cover, and all the fiddly-bits you need to carry on the road. Comfortable to wear, even fully loaded and it fits under the seat or in the overhead on any plane I've been on. Great bag.

First Impression is Very Postitive

By Bill

Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

I have only used this bag a couple of times, so I can't speak to its durability, but it seems to suit my purposes well. I have a large LowePro backpack suitable for hiking, but it is too bulky for air travel and it is too heavy for me to hike with these days. Since I am usually shooting within a couple of miles of my car, I wanted a smaller bag that would still hold enough lenses for a day of shooting and also one I could carry onto planes. I can carry my 5D Mark III, a wide angle, an intermediate zoom, and the 100-400 in this bag along with most of the necessary filters, batteries, etc. The bag has comfortable shoulder straps and is fine for the hiking I do. I don't use the waist belt, which is pretty minimal. I normally carry my tripod over my shoulder, so have not used that feature. The various pouches are not overly large, so there isn't a lot of extra room for a jacket or more than the basic array of filters and extra cards, batteries. But it's fine for day hiking and the lack of big pouches make it more compact for air travel. The founder of this company has developed a new line of bags designed more for hiking if you want a more heavily padded bag better suited for longer hikes, but this one is great for day use and short to medium hikes and travel.

Best travel backpack ever!

By Michael Ali

Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

The ThinkTank Streetwalker Series backpack isn't just another piece of gear, it's a fully customizable photo studio portability system. The construction seems unusually durable, right down to the zippers and inside pockets. The backpack overall is a lot lighter than expected for such construction, and it comes with a complete rain cover so the backpack can stay dry in unexpected rain. What also come with the Streetwalker backpack are tripod straps - both smaller, portable tripods and larger, heavier tripods with the fold-out pocket for heavy tripod leg stability. By itself it can hold a 17-inch laptop snugly and safely in the most padded area of the backpack, even with two ungripped bodies. With a gripped body in the backpack, a 15-inch laptop fits perfectly. The rest is a system of padded but rearrangeable compartments that easily accommodate two or three camera bodies and still have room for a good selection of lenses and flashes. The "speed belt", or "steroid belt", connects securely to the backpack and allows for several clever add-ons that can customize the backpack even further, like a rapid-change lens pouch, the Pixel Pocket Rocket memory card holder and more. One of the best features of this backpack is that it fits almost all photographer sizes, from the petite female to the larger man. The ThinkTank Streetwalker series backpack is a wise investment that will grow with one's photography and offer the versatility to remain the go-to gear for years to come.

Great Bag!!... but too big for me

By Chuck J

Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

This is a great bag as expected from Think Tank Photo. However, the height of the bag was more than I wanted to handle. One disappointment was the ease of inserting and removing a laptop. With a thick 15.6" display laptop, inserting and removing was too cumbersome. A top opening instead of a side opening for the laptop compartment might be better. I ended up returning it.

Pleasantly Surprised

By Photo Hobby

Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

This bag holds more than I expected. I have a Nikon D750 with battery grip, and a 24-70 VR, 24-120, 70-200 VRII along with my flash. The Street-Walker seems to be comfortable for a backpack, and it holds so much more than my old backpack.

I would recommend this bag for someone who wants to carry a lot, plus it meets airline standards for carrying on board.

    I have been using the bag for the last 3 weeks and really like it. It can carry my Nikon body with 1.4TC and Nikomn 300mm f/2.8 with hood attached. The bag is spacious and has adequate compartments. The construction is sturdy and the straps are really comfortable. I would highly recommend this bag

      I love this bag. Perfect for for traveling or everyday photography outings. I am 6' 2", 220 lbs and this bag is a perfect size for me. I have been looking for a backpack that holds everything I need and is not too big and this backpack fits the bill. I only wish that it had an exterior accessible area for headphones and other bulky items you want to get to easily when traveling.

          Love this, it was just what we needed to fit on the smaller plane for our trip. Regular size wouldn"t have worked with the smaller storage space on the plane; and we never want to check our gear. Highly recommend this to anyone needing a smaller bag or for weddings and photo shoots.

          Comments about Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive (Black/Silver/Blue):

          Used on recent photo workshop in France. Worked great for me.

          Passed for carry on size (mid 2015) on any flight I have been on so far (although it does exceed max Depth by a small amount).

          Comparison with Mindshift Gear Rotation 180 Professional:

          PROs:
          Looks a lot more compact than the Mindshift Gear Rotation 180 backpack, even though by measures it is not that much smaller (about 2 inches in each dimension). Will be less likely to get you under scrutiny at the gate when boarding.

          Fits a lot more gear than the Mindshift with the lens case insert - like in 'a LOT more'. Well organized interior. Sufficient padding.

          CONS:
          Doesn't hold much besides photo gear - like a rain jacket, water reservoir etc. So not ideal for hour long hikes. The Mindshift Gear Rotation 180 is better for that.

          OVERALL:
          I would recommend the HardDrive over the Rotation 180 for anybody wanting to haul more gear and that will use gear in situations where putting the backpack down to change lenses will not be an issue. Even if the latter is a potential issue, combining the HardDrive with the Think Tank Photo PRO SPEED BELT V2.0 works very well and is in my opinion a better combo that should cover 90%+ of the cases where quick and easy-access lens change is required. And that combo allows for added flexibility. Use the Mindshift Lens Switch Case over the Think Tank one though - it has better access and is not as bulky!

          For foreign travel holds my 7d, 100-400 II, telescope, binocs, flash, and still room for other stuff. It's safer than checking gear and keeps the weight out of the suitcase as well. A bit heavy by itself but less so than some others I've used.

            Well made, somewhat configurable. will actually hold my HP 17 inch laptop if I do not use the large body. (it will fit too, just tight on the zipper!) Carries well and fits even very small overheads on aircraft. (realize you will have to get it past the gate Cerabus as anything black is evil to those hateful souls even though this is way under the numbers.) I have found it fits under the seats on some Airbus units. Very recommended
