Does anyone out there know of a similar styled and sized shoulder bag to the Think Tank Retrospective 7........but the main compartment closes with a zipper, instead of just the velcro flap??

Brand and Price are not important, just similar in style and size to the Retro 7.........but with a zipper.

I had a Retro10 and it didn't work for me.

have you considered a Billingham HadleyPro? No zipper. However it covers up easily and carries well.

I have a TT Urban Disguise 40 with a zipper. It's so well made! (I don't use it.)

Maybe a Tenba Messenger?

And many Lowe Pro. Perhaps a Stealth Reporter?

Sorry to bump an old thread, I'm highly interested in this bag.

Do you think I could fit a 5D3 + 24 1.4 II + 50 1.2 + 85 1.2 + 135 2.0, Plus your usual accessories..? Spare batteries, memory cards, rocket blower etc etc.

I doubt all of that will fit in the bag, unless you're willing to put one of the lenses or the camera body in the outer pocket. I think the most you will be able to fit in the camera compartment is the body and maybe three of those lenses. The accessories will all fit though. The outer pocket expands quite a bit.

Not all 4 lenses. It would fit 1 of them mounted and 2 others but that may even be a bit tight if you have the hoods on. Honestly it would probably be uncomfortable on 1 shoulder anyway.

As others have said, no. I currently have mine filled with a 5D3 with a 24-105 attached with the hood, a 70-200 f/4, an 85 1.8, a 50 1.8 and a 17-40 f/4 (with the hood removed not even backwards) and I wouldn't feel comfortable walking around with all of those. I just have them packed in there to get where I'm going and then I'll pick and choose the lenses to take when I go out. I also have a bunch of other stuff in there as well...filters, battery charger, memory cards, etc...

Don't get me wrong, it's a great bag and I love it but that's a little too much gear for it to handle.

Damn! Which bag from the TT Retrospective range should I be looking at to fit said gear?

You may want to look at the retro 30 or larger.
