Hello, I don't mean these large, obnoxious slings I see most places. I want something like a Lowepro Passport Sling LINK HERE (external link). However, I want it to fit a 1d.


So a satchel/sling type bag that carries on your side and doesn't scream HEY THIS IS A CAMERA IN HERE, is somewhat easy to get the camera in and fits a 1d with a lens on.

Probably doesnt exist, but its worth a try! :lol:

Dont have a recommendation for you, but I did want to say that every time I have tried owning a sling type of bag, once Ive got gear in it I cant carry it too long before my shoulder or neck start to hurt. Have you tried this style, loaded and for a length of time? For me backpacks are the only way to go.

How do they compare to the Think Tank retrospective? The Think Tank is less conspicuous, which I like.


The most I would carry in this is a 1d2 with a 200 L (2.8 obv), a second shorter lens and maybe an extra battery or flash. I want something somewhat smaller, but most of the ones I am now finding that fit pro-dslr's are pretty big bags.

I carry a bag like this every day. Carry it over your opposite shoulder, you should be fine. :)

Think Tank Retospective 20. It'll fit everything you listed (and more) and does not look like a camera bag at all

Yeah, I really like the look of it. However, the price point of the Crumpler is very appealing.

I have the Passport, it does not fit a 1D series at all. The insert for a camera can just fit a 5D2 with 24-70 attached.

I agree, I think a retrospective 10 would be too tight, 20 or 30 would be perfect.

Will the 5 million dollar home be large enough for what I need? Is there a quality difference between the Crumpler and the Think Tank?

I read that Saddleback Leather Co. is designing a camera satchel. I'm waiting to see what they come up with. It would be perfect when you don't want to look like you're carrying camera gear. It will probably look something like this

Wow. Nice looking product, but a little ostentatious for me. No offense intended, its certainly beautiful.

The Retrospective 20 is 2.25" taller than the Retrospective 10. They are the same width and depth. As long as your lens or lens with camera mounted isn't taller than 9.5", the Retro 10 will be fine. The Retro 30 is the same height and depth as the 10, but it is 3" wider.

I just got a Retrospective 10 a few days ago. I took it to Fontainebleau State Park (external link) yesterday for some sunset shooting. There are two dividers inside which separate the main compartment into three columns.

I carried a 50D with Canon 17-55 f/2.8 attached in one column, a Sigma 10-20 and Sigma 30mm in the second column, and a Canon 70-200 f/4 in the third column. I put a remote release cable in one of the small inside side pockets. I had 2 B+W filters and Canon 20D body in the front pocket. I had a small flashlight, extra batteries, and extra CF cards in the outside side pockets. I have a Benro Travel Angel that folds to 13", and I can lay that across the top of the center compartment and close the flap over it. It's great as long as I'm only walking, but not secure enough for climbing on rocks like I did yesterday.


This is slightly different equipment that listed above, but I can fit all of this stuff inside:

My retro 20 bag is a gem, 5d w/ 24-70 attached, 50mm and 580exII on the left and I got the 70-200 2.8 in there as well. Really durable and looks great too

Just got the retrospective 30 today and must say it is an amazing bag! From the outside it looks big, but when you open it up it looks HUGE! It is very similar to my Urban Disguise 60v2 (minus the space for the 17" lapop) is terms of size, but I honestly think I can fit more gear in here.

Will be my go-to bag for my upcoming Taiwan/Cambodia trip
