FYI f-stop is coming out with an urban line this fall... ;)
I'm excited because when I reviewed their satori last year, they asked for recomendations and I said a new type of bag with side access. They said it wasn't a good fit with what they were doing but there were considering it for something more urban oriented, so maybe I'll get my wish.

As to your last line, I agree 100% with needing different bags for different shoots.

I NEED:
a shoulder bag for arch shooting
a chest bag for ski shooting
a cotton carrier for shooting on a boat

I WANT:
a vest for landscape crap, it's just much easier than a shoulder bag or backpack, you never have to set it down...
a backpack for when I'm hiking over shooting, but generally I pair my chest bag with a normal backpack so I'm not so back heavy...


Yeah the first one is the GURU - http://fstopgear.com/e​n/guru (external link)
They told me about it when I was placing my order, but I felt that the Loka would better suit what I was looking for. I appreciate the feedback you gave me on the Satori when I asked you about it a number of months ago :)

Just received my ThinkTank Retrospective 10 :) bigger than expected, but looks really good. Will have to get used to it and post some picture in few days time :)

I had the same feeling when I got it. I had an idea of what size it would be but it was a bit deeper than I thought. Even so, once I got it configured I just fell in love with that bag. It's so darn flexible! I have it with me right now for my weekend in San Diego (small kit)

Yeah I find the depth is a bit too big. My 5D w/ 24-70 hood on is too tall to sit in the bag comfortably (it does fit, but the back of 5D pokes the lid). With hood reversed the body+lens is too short and rests on the inserts maybe a bit too much. Still trying to arrange the best setup in side the bag. :)

I thought I had my bag (retro20) set for me that I shifted things around a bit. I placed the insert a little closer together so when I put my 5D with 24-105 attached it sites on the inserts with the flaps folded parallel to the bottom of the bag. It keeps it at the right distance from the opening and the bottom. Other lenses on the side and a flash and it's snug enough to get up and go but still has room for another lens and/or goodies

I just received the Think Tank Photo Streetwalker Pro last week:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
HTTP response: 403 | MIME changed to 'text/html'


I bought it since I no longer had a regular mid-size camera bag. Needed something to go-between my Urban Disguise 35 and Airport International v2. So far I'm pretty happy with it, though I haven't really put it to use (worn it around town or what not). It's slim, but deep. It has plenty of room for what I need it for: a bag to carry a gripped body with a 70-200, and additional lens, and extra supplementary gear like PocketWizards, one or two 580 EX II, and filters.

It's a very nice backpack indeed, I also have a same one.

This is the NOVA 200aw.

I don't have a lot of gear, but I'm already maxing out this bag with what I have. The 7D takes up most of the room.

That doesn't look close to maxing out the bag. But glad you posted pictures because I'm looking at buying that

Well, its deceiving because the 7D with the grip is a big part of the bag. If I took the lens off, sure there would be more room, but I hate doing that because I usually know what lens i need before I go somewhere.

How do you like the bag construction and durability? Any room for a netbook?

Have a play with the dividers, there is a tonne more room to be had in that bag with some different packing approaches. ;)

No it can't, i had the Nova 200AW for my Quadra batterypack but never used it for camera gear. Im not sure i would either to be honest.....Didn't like the layout of the bag for camera gear nor can you set the dividers as you like em since the interior only has patches of velcro and isn't covered completely.

Most definitely. Here's a snap of the back compartment with my IPAD and Netbook in the pouch.

Construction is pretty solid. I can not see any problems ahead however I have not used the bag much yet. It has pouches for everything. Very nice. It's just a little bit TOO BIG for a quick trip to the river, or somewhere I Only need a bag for the camera and one lens, or flash.

OH I Agree. I have yet to really stuff the bag and use it much. The dividers are actually a bit too SMALL. Which is my only complaint. The small size of the dividers does limit how you can organize items.

My old setup was Nikon D7000 w/grip, Tamron 18-200mm f3.5-6.3, Tamron 28-75mm f2.8, Nikon 35mm f1.8, SB600, Sanyo Eneloops with charger and misc items all in a LowePro SlingShot 200AW.

Ended up selling the SlingShot via craigslist and got a brand new Crumpler 7MDH for $35! Ended up selling my 18-200mm and 28-75. Now all I have is my D7000 w/grip, just purchased a Sigma 24-70mm f2.8, Nikon 35mm f1.8, SB600, Eneloops with charger and misc items.

Still waiting for my bag to arrive..so no pics. Sorry.
