The Retrospective 7 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.

Excellent !

Excellent, I already had a Retrospective 30 bag and wanted a slightly smaller one for my D850 camera with its 24/70 2.8 zoom, that's why I ordered the Retrospective 7, they are, They are bags of excellent quality and with a very comfortable design ...

Well-made and well thought-out

I've owned a Retrospective 5 (first version) for several years, and been very impressed by its features, durability and looks. It was great for day-trips, but when traveling, not not quite big enough. In particular, I needed a bag big enough to include my 10" tablet, which the 5 won't accommodate. So the Retrospective 7 v2.0 was first on my list to check out: just a bit bigger, with some upgrades from the original series. It really delivers. The very few irritations I had with the older bag are all addressed by v2.0. Of course, it fits my 10" tablet, and now there's plenty room for other items when traveling. Very satisfied with the purchase.

Fits more than you think!

I bought this bag from Fixation for my new Fuji xt4 and a couple of lenses. Im flying Cattle-Class Ryanair to Oslo in a few days and besides the usual cabin bag they allow you an under seat bag. The 7 will fit under the seat nicely. Like all of us I don't like carrying too much but what I do in general carry is a couple of bodies. Id probably have a wide angle zoom on one and a telephoto zoom on the other. I can't bear faffing around changing lenses. It simply isn't practical. I don't really understand why bags aren't sold as such, and they don't need to be huge either. Anyway, for my underseat Retrospective 7 and only for travel Ive unmounted the lenses. XE2 and Xt4 bodies sit in the bottom of the bag. On top of this are lenses, an 18-55, a 90 F2, a 10-24 F4 and a 55-200. So, that's two bodies and four lenses. The joy of mirrorless! And there's still quite bit of room for some filters, chargers spare batteries etc. Remarkable.

Love Version 2 Bag

I purchased the Retrospective 7 to use with my Z6. and the primary glass I carry with it on daily shoots. I carry the Nikkor Z 24-70 f2.8 S lens mounted, the 14-30 f4 S, and the 85 f1.8 S lens. I love this bag so much better than my version 1 Size 20 that I use when I was carrying my D700 and a 70-200 mounted. I like the zippered secondary flap. I like the way the storage is just a bit cleaner and easier to find things. I love the original but sometimes I had a tough time finding things in it. The new version is just a bit neater and better organized. Please do not make any more improvements. I cannot afford another new bag. My Retrospective 20 is just fine..... :) Yes the Think Tank bags are the best I have found. I have tried a bunch and some of them barely made it out of their shipping container. I know if I order a Thinktank Bag it will be a long time tool. I getting old enough to say it may be the last bag I buy... maybe....
