22 Jul ThinkTank Retrospective 6 Shoulder Bag Review
Source: Mirror Lessons
The ThinkTank Retrospective series is an excellent line-up of bags. They have a simple design, are comfortable to carry, accommodate lots of gear thanks to the soft insides and most importantly, have lots of pockets. The series now comprises 7 bags excluding the leather series which has a special leather cover on the flap and shoulder pad.
The Retrospective 6 is the latest addition and aims to be a hybrid solution for mirrorless cameras and DSLRs. Of course we tested the bag with the former and found that it has some very interesting characteristics especially if you need to carry lots of gear.

The bag has a minimalistic design. Outside it is mostly made of sand-washed cotton canvas with a water-repellent coating. Inside you will find polyurethane and silver-toned nylon. Light rain won’t harm it even though the material isn’t completely water resistant. This is why the brand provides a separate rain cover if the weather becomes too severe. It is easy enough to put on and doesn’t get in the way of the two straps.
