The Retrospective 5 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.

Great For A Mirrorless Kit

I had recently purchased a Nikon Z 6II along with a Nikkor Z 50mm lens to use as my everyday walk-around kit. I already have several Think Tank camera bags, but they were just too large for my new Nikon kit. Being already familiar with the high quality of Think Tank gear, I ordered the Retrospective 5 V2.0 and the Z 6II with the 50mm attached fit perfect. There was also enough room for my 35mm lens, battery charger and some cleaning gear. I don’t think this would be the right bag for a full size DSLR with a lens attached, but it was just what the doctor ordered for my mirrorless kit. I ordered the camera bag online directly from Think Tank and the arrived quickly and was well packaged.

Perfect & comfortable

I bought my camera and was lucky to find this bag. Works amazing for camera and lenses. Definitely soft and protected for your equipments . Love the fact that it come with a rain bag to protect it. Definitely would recommend to a friend.

Well thought out, well constructed

Big enough to hold my Sony RX10 and Sony RX100 with room for a cleaning kit, note pad and pencil, spare batteries, end even a small flashlight. Great closure systems, rugged strap, and attractive w/o calling attention to itself. I great bag! (And it's NOT made in China.)

Impressive Shoulder bag

My first ThinkTank product having been searching for that "perfect" (not too small not too big) camera bag for a while. The Retrospective 5 V2 has just arrived and after a little bit of self doubt (should I have bought the size 7?), I've been amazed how much I can pack into this retrospective 5 V2 bag - actually more than I'll probably take on a typical day out! Having a Panasonic GH5 with a 12-60mm as a walkabout combo, I didn't want anything too big and bulky, but I can easily get in 42.5mm and 15mm primes as well as a 35-100mm lens as well as spare batteries and filters. Or, I can swap out some of these for my 100-400mm lens according to my needs. My wife straight away said "oh I like that bag - much better than those boring black camera bags you've used before!". Yes, my first camera bag that doesn't look like a camera bag! It's light, compact and clearly built to the highest quality standard. Very impressed and very pleased with my purchase. Happy days!!

Great Product as expected!

I have many of Think Tank’s products and all perform well beyond expectation from a durability, functionality, and design standpoint. As a working professional Photographer I put them to the test! The retrospective 5 2.0 is a nice addition as I use it as my “walk around” camera bag for the days I’m not shooting for a job but just for me.
