I love the TT Retro 10 Pinestone but I need something water proof for the beach. Something I can just drop in the sand and not worry about water seeping in. About the same size and messenger style. Any recommendations?

Tenba Black Label? satchel or camera bag. I don't own one, but would be interested, except for issues with a Tenba in the past.

how about a waterproof dry bag and an insert? quick access might be compromised though.

+1. Don't see why you need a special bag for the beach that may run you $100+.

Thanks guys. I have looked into dry bags and regular shopping bags and have not been able to find one that fits the Retrospective 10 nicely. I did find this Starbrite Waterproofing and Fabric Treatment spray on Amazon which has good reviews:

You may not want it to fit tightly. If you will be changing lens, then do everything inside the plastic bag to keep sand out of your camera and lens. I used a large trash can bag and used not only for my TT Retro 10 but also as a changing bag. Just put your back to the wind and it won't blow around as much.

Thanks! That makes a lot of sense. I'm going to try that method.

Countless years ago I spent 2 weeks on a beach on vacation. I used a cheap nylon messenger style bag, but kept a garbage bag within. I intended to use the g-bag as a ground sheet. While I was prepared for water penetration, I had more issues with blowing sand. Darn sand got into everything. ;)
I had no issues with sand due to lens changes.
Last year I took my Retro10 and dslr with an 18-200 lens to Cape Cod. Blowing sand was an issue; so were Atlantic storms. Although it's a great bag, I chose it poorly. It didn't meet my needs. Found it heavy, and the raincover inconvenient. I've replaced it since. YMMV.

This isn't my original idea ... I read it here on the forums some time ago ...

When traveling, many hotels have a complimentary shower cap pack in the bathroom for guests.

Throw one in your camera bag for emergency rain protection for your camera or camera bag. They may be the appropriate size to slip over the bottom of your camera bag to protect it from being damaged if set down on wet sand.

A small trash bag is also a good idea, and easy to carry (perhaps even as an internal liner for your bag in wet weather.

You could also look for naturally weatherproof bags such as Billinghams ... but I don't think I would put mine down in wet sand even though it would take it!

Great hint Howard!
