HASH(0x91bb64c8) out of 5 stars Decent pack, but many other options for side loading sling backs in this price point 11 Sept. 2014
By Mike - Published on
Colour Name: Black
I recently went through six camera bags (seven really, but I can't remember what the seventh was) trying to find one that would fill most or all of these requirements:

* Able to be accessed without removing the bag
* Would hold my 50-150mm f/2.8 lens (similar size to the 70-200mm f/2.8) on-body with enough space to also hold it off-body when I swap on my 18-200mm.
* Would tolerate me leaving my tripod mounting plate on the camera when I put it in or take it out.
* Would additionally hold my speedlight, spare battery, blower, mini tabletop tripod, and cleaning kit.
* Had a rain cover
* Was the minimum size to hold all of the above (I have other larger bags - I just don't like to carry them all the time). I wanted to be able to get my camera in and out of it with it tucked in a nook behind my car seat (the car is a two seater), and wanted to be able to stow the bag easily at my feet on theme park rides, buses, etc... This meant it would be less than 11" wide, no more than 14" tall, and less than 7.5" thick.
* Had other attachment points on it or its straps for me to hang other things on (like my bag rain jacket)
* Was well made

Price wasn’t really a huge factor. I wasn’t going to pay more than $200 for the bag, and did ideally prefer less than $100, but my main objective was meeting as many of these requirements as possible.

In total, I tried:

* Think Tank Urban Disguise 35 Shoulder Bag V2.0
* Tamrac 5786 Evolution 6 Backpack
* Think Tank Street Walker Backpack
* Tamrac 5273 Expedition 3 Backpack
* Lowepro Format Backpack 150
* Manfrotto Agile II Sling Backpack

While I don’t have the space here or the time to offer deep, detailed reviews of each, I will provide my high level findings.

Think Tank Urban Disguise 35 Shoulder Bag V2.0
* Extremely well made. Everything felt secure and solid, with quality zippers and stitching.
* Able to fit the D7100, 15-150mm lens, 18-200mm lens, mini tripod, and speedlight in the main compartment, regardless of which lens is mounted, and it's still easy to put in or take out the camera.
* As a shoulder-strap carried bag, was easy to access without taking the bag off. In addition, Think Tank makes a backpack conversion kit, so on days when I need to carry it further with less frequent access, I can carry it as a backpack.
* Many other options are available from Think Tank, such as the attachment strap system which clips onto loops on the pack. I love the modularity.
* Easily tucks into the desired nook in my car (if you have a C5 Corvette convertible, this will tuck behind the driver seat under the lid where the top stows, without preventing you from lowering the top and while still preserving the ability to access the bag and your camera by just tipping the seat forward).
* The front compartment can expand to hold quite a bit if you need to put something larger (like a poncho in my case) in it.
* I do wish it was possible to better organize some of the other accessories in this bag (those in the other pockets / compartments). That isn't really an issue though - just me being anal.
* It's clear Think Tank is thinking about the future. The bag has D-rings attached to all four corners of the bag even though their optional backpack conversion system only uses the handles and bottom two rings right now (ie - they're there to preserve possible future functionality... I love that... and in my case I may make my own sling kit for it using them).

Verdict: Can't say enough positive things about this bag. The Think Tank bags were pricier than the others, but you do get what you pay for. If you want a great top loading shoulder bag that can hold a long lens, then give this bag strong consideration. The many options and backpack conversion are also great pluses.

Tamrac 5786 Evolution 6 Backpack
* Very well made. Everything felt secure and solid, with quality zippers and stitching.
* Very versatile given it can be converted between a backpack and sling pack.
* Love the many openings. It puts almost every piece of gear at your fingertips.
* Interior dividers are completely customizable. You could literally strip all of them out of the bag, turning it into a hollow shell. This includes being able to move the divider between the top compartment and the bottom.
* Held everything I needed to, but just barely, making it difficult to take the camera or other lens in and out, particularly with my requirement to hold the 50-150mm on-body.
* Not comfortable to carry as a sling pack when there's any amount of weight in it. The strap isn't wide enough or perhaps the angle it hangs at is wrong. In addition, there's no cross-strap to connect from the main strap to the other rear corner of the bag. Without being able to carry it as a sling bag, this fails my requirement to be able to access the bag without taking it off.

Verdict: Didn't work well for my gear requirements, but without the long lens requirement this bag would have been great. It's possible to get at the camera, a lens or two, a speedlight, and a cleaning kit without digging, by just unzipping the appropriate compartment. Extremely versatile. Don't expect a lot of comfort as a sling pack though - you should consider this primarily a backpack.

Think Tank Street Walker Backpack
* Extremely well made. Everything felt secure and solid, with quality zippers and stitching.
* This did hold everything I wanted it to and using the dividers was easy to organize. However, getting the camera in or out of it really required taking the bag off, and I was hoping to avoid that.
* It's shape and design provide it the ability to make excellent use of available space. You can fit a lot of gear in it for the size of the bag.
* The straps are very nicely padded and have versatile attachment points (in addition to those on the backpack itself).
* Like the Think Tank Urban Disguise, there are many accessories available from Think Tank. I love the modularity.

Verdict: Think Tank is clearly committed to quality and innovation. This bag has topnotch quality and many available options. Also has great space given its slim profile. If you don't need a slim backpack though, then Think Tank has additional options that might be worth considering.

Tamrac 5273 Expedition 3 Backpack
* Surprisingly well made for such a small bag. Everything felt secure and solid.
* Zippers were more in-line with other consumer bags, but still felt ok and operated well.
* Unfortunately, besides not being able to be accessed without taking it off, it also just couldn't hold what I needed to. Getting the camera w/ the 50-150mm lens on it into the bag was a real struggle, and there was no way to have it in there with the other lens, much less the speedlight too. Not surprising given the size, though Tamrac also seems a bit liberal in what they list as their inside dimensions.
* No rain cover, so you'll need to order one separately if you want it. While Tamrac doesn't make one for this bag, one of Clik Elite's covers for the chest bags could fit this well.
* Did have some versatile attachment points for other items like a tripod or stuff you want to hang from the straps.

Verdict: Not sure there are many other options out there at this price point, size, and versatility. If you want a small, well made bag, which still has versatility, give this a serious look. Don’t expect to get a long, wide aperture lens into it though.

Lowepro Format Backpack 150
* Would not have ordinarily considered this bag. The padding is disturbingly thin. The straps are thin. The stitching is so-so.
* But... It managed to hold exactly what I wanted it to with zero extra room to spare, but without being difficult to get things in and out. In terms of size, this bag was the closest to what I wanted.
* Made the most efficient use of space. It's literally a rectangle.
* No accessory attachment points.
* Can't access it without taking it off.

Verdict: Worth checking out only if you want a small, inexpensive, lightweight bag, which makes very efficient use of space, and you don't expect a lot of padding or other options. To get it to fill my needs I would have spent another $50 on shoulder pads, extra padding, extra dividers, a rain cover, etc... at which point it would have been just as expensive as the much higher quality packs.

Manfrotto Agile II Sling Backpack
* Very well made. Everything felt secure and solid, with quality zippers and stitching.
* The interior dividers are customizable, including the separator between the bottom compartment and top compartment.
* But it is really meant just to be a side loader. For example, the divider for the top compartment could be folded down to enable you to top load a camera into it, but there wasn't a crease in the padding to allow you to do that, which made it attach a bit oddly.
* Can hold a fair amount of gear, but still couldn't comfortably get everything on my list into it without being excessively difficult to shoehorn things into it.
* Not sure what I think of the bizarre giant buckle system to get the top compartment open - especially since I wanted to convert it into a top loader.
* But... Was easily the most comfortable sling backpack I've tried (MUCH more so than the Tamrac Evolution 6, and more so than several other options that I briefly tried on). I believe the extra-wide strap contributed to this.

Verdict: A very comfortable, quality, side loading sling pack. Not very functional as a top loader though, and as a side loader only, there are many other options to consider.

At the end of the day I ended up with the Think Tank Urban Disguise 35 V2.0. It was the only bag of the bunch that met literally every one of my requirements, and is also incredibly well made.

For what it's worth, over the years I've tried bags from many different manufacturers, and there are definitely two that stand out as being a step ahead of the rest. If you're willing to spend a bit extra on a bag, take a look at Clik Elite if you want a good outdoor bag (particularly for hiking) and Think Tank (for just about everything else). Both make really excellent gear, have great customer service, and have a lot of available options.
