I think it's the cross strap. You loop it on the main strap and clip it on the bottom of the bag to keep it from moving around. I don't have the Snooper exactly, but I do have a regular messenger bag from them and it came with that.

Thanks, pretty obvious now that I look at it.

Uggg, I'm totally slammed in work right now since midterms are next week so I don't have any good photos yet. But here's a pic I snapped after class of my setup.

Anybody who owns the small version of this bag mind taking a pic of it on? I just want to see how it looks when against the body.

With this being a bag that sounds to conform to your body, without the laptop in it, do you notice any movement of your gear within the padded compartments? With my 7MDH I never worry about my stuff jostling around, but with this bag I'd be a little worried.

Gear doesn't move around and being able to zip it shut is nice.

Since this thread popped back up, can we get a quick comparison/recommendat​ion on the Snoop Vs 7MDH? Thanks Depth. I have a 7MDH that I just bought and have not used yet and am wondering if I should have gotten the Snoop.

I've been using the bag sine the fall, typically with a 5D Mk II, 24-70 mounted, 17-40, 70-200 2.8 and either a 50 1.4 or my 14mm. Very comfortable to carry, very secure. I've never noticed, or worried about gear moving, and with the straps you can close the bag up tight or leave it loose for quick shooting. I've also gone with 2 bodies with lenses attached and maybe one more lens. In comparison to the 7MDH, similar in size and depending upon how you configure it will carry about the same. Having owned the 7MDH previously, I like the Snoop better for working out of,and being more low key. Living in the great northwet the weatherproof construction is a huge plus.

Thanks Mitch, that helps. I'm thinking I may make the switch.

My 7MDH has really been collecting dust since I got the Snoop. I just use it to store gear now, lol. I love the Snoop since it still functions like my other Timbuk2 bags. Tighten it up and it sits tight on my back (making it useful for hikes, biking, etc...).

I've gotten my 7MDH to kind of sit the same but the strap sucks in comparison and because of the design of the bag/materials used it doesn't conform like the Snoop does. Really, the 7MDH is a shoulder bag and the Snoop is a messenger bag. And for my uses a messenger bag is preferable.

Great. That's what I wanted to hear. Thanks, Depth.

I'm curious as to how comfy it is using the bag while biking. I've always been afraid to ride with my gear because of fear of discomfort and falling (crushing my bag) :o.

Do you find that the medium size snoop can hold more gear or is bigger than the 7mdh? Sometimes it feels like my gear is a bit hard to get in and out of my 7mdh which is a good and bad thing I think.

It can hold more gear.

Glad to hear that.

Would you also say it has more room for accessories, like batteries, chargers, cards, manuals, triggers, etc etc. than the 7mdh does? I find that I'm almost ALWAYS stuffing stuff anywhere I can because of the lack of space for accessories.

I'm between a Medium Snoop and a Think Tank Retrospective 30 for my next bag. I just love the Timbuk2 bags so much, they sit perfectly on my back. Right where I want them, safe and secure.
