Tempted by this, I've been to the store in London where they sell them. Was looking at thinktank retro 7 but for this price....hmmmmm.

You got the luxury of touching/trying it.. i just had the missus buying it when she was over there, i had no idea about the bag other than a few images. No reviews no nothing.

Love it, use it every day.. it beats thinktank in price, if the urge for a thinktank gets too big in a few months you havent lost much cash on this bag.

I didn't even have the missus check it out. I just went on BT's recommendation. Bought it on eBay and I haven't regretted it. I use it every day too and it is the best bargain I've had in photography. Looks very cool too.

I'm glad my review and images helped you decide. :D

Well I've been comparing ebay sellers and have been finding wrong sizes for different models (been checking F1001 F1002 and F1005) one seller shows a F1005 and gives the sizes for a F1002. Also sellers say color-yellow ? I think they mean khaki when they say yellow or greyish yellow. Any how I'm not sure if I want to order one from ebay,wait 3-4 weeks and find out it's not the one I wanted. Any tips on a good ebay seller for the F1001?

I got mine through eBay user zpcamera. They shipped right away and I had it in less than 10 days.

So so.. it can handle lighter rain pretty good, but once the sky opens up i would suggest getting under shelter.

Another interested party here too.

I'd like to have something stealthy to carry a body and one or two lenses for those times I just want to blend in. This looks like a perfect option to me and the price is quite agreeable too I think.

Thanks for posting

the bag stitching looks sketchy as heck. I found that after playing with the cheaper messenger bag, you can really get something just as high quality and cheap. I grabbed a domke F2 (old style) on CL for $20.... a week later, my BIL grabbed one for $30..... he later nabbed a brand new F2 for $50, and it's sweet and stealthy. Also stupidly well made.

So, a little over a year later this bag is still holding its own. I have put it through hell and have had no problems. The stitching is excellent and zippers have not let go either. Great bargain.

Same here, still satisfied. Been through rain, snow, storms and sunshine. Nothing broke yet.

Will a MacBook Pro Retina 13" (together with the camera insert and camera and lenses) fit in there?
