The Retrospective 30 V2.0 shoulder bag retains that classic look but includes many innovative new features.

Keeping the soft, form-fitting design, they are lighter than the original. For greater security, we added a zippered opening under the main flap that tucks away when not in use.

The perfect bag for me

I had been looking for a new shoulder bag for myself for several years and finally locked into the ThinkTank Retrospective 30 v2.0. I am so happy to have pulled the trigger to get this bag. The superior quality and craftsmanship are second to none. I know that this bag will be a part of my life for a long journey. Being a traveling wedding, wildlife, music, and lifestyle photography can really abuse the equipment I travel with, and I am confident that the ThinkTank Retro 30 will provide the security needed to protect my gear while also looking extremely stylish. I purchased a second one for my wife and also have several other ThinkTank products. I have been beyond pleased with the quality of product they deliver. Will be supporting ThinkTank for many years to come. I highly suggest that you invest in their products as well.

Retrospective 30 Bag

I like how the bag holds my 3 lens, dslr, and charger. It will hold one more macro lens when needed. When I used the bag for the first time I especially liked that it could carry a 32 oz water bottle.

Great Shoulder Bag

I bought this bag to carry my camera in a shoulder bag. My camera fits in it and I can carry extra equipment.

Thoughts on the Retrospective Camera bags

I recently purchased both the 30 v2.0 and the 20v2.0 - needing both for different scenarios. I really like the bags. They are spacious enough for the gear I need to take with me on different shoots and very comfortable to carry. Two suggestions however… I wish there were exterior mounting options for a tripod and I really wish the top covers opened to the outside making it easier to access my camera and lenses. Neither of these features are major… only suggestions. All in all I am very happy with both.


At Think Tank, we build our products for the daily impacts of travel and demands of working professionals over extended periods of time. We build many of our products with user replaceable parts to keep your bag going for years.
