The Think Tank SubUrban Disguise 5 is a compact bag which conceals your expensive equipment without allowing passers by to realise what's in your bag. The SubUrban 5 is designed to hold a standard-sized DSLR with 1-2 small zoom or prime lenses, or a Mirrorless Camera Systems and 2-3 pro-size flashes with room for wireless triggers. The flip-top lid folds away from your body which provides quick access to your gear when necessary. A front organizer pouch makes space for a mobile phone and other personal items and a large front pocket is located under the bags front flap which can be used for batteries and other small items. Includes a seam-sealed rain cover to protect your equipment from the elements.

First of all, this is ThinkTank we're talking about. Which means you get a well crafted, quality bag that won't give up on you even in the most demanding circumstances. It's the smallest member of the SubUrban Disguise family. I bought mine for my film SLR to carry around but not with too much bulk. This bag matches the bill. Front pouch houses a raincoat as well, there is also space for business cards, pens and keys in the pocket found on the front flap, which covers the front pouch. Inside, I can fit a Canon AE-1 Program, which is a small sized SLR with a 50mm lens attached to it, an additional Canon 135mm FD lens, a cellphone charger with a cable and a really fat wallet (not because of the money in it, lol). On the sides, and in the back, there are elastic "sleeves" to hold additional documents or equipment. The sling strap that carries the bag is sturdy, well made and feels good, with a padded patch on the top for extra bit of comfort.
I also have the SubUrban Disguise 20 camera bag, which is almost twice the size and it's really awesome to use it. I recommend this product to every street photographer and photographer in general, it won't disappoint you.

Buying this Think Tank SubUrban Disguise 5 Compact Shoulder Bag was the result of looking at a number of bags currently available, and there are many. The goal was to narrow the choices to the one that would best fit my own specific needs: a quality bag that would hold two pro/advanced digital compacts, where either could be grabbed easily and quickly on a moment's notice for fast street photography. Here's the short version for those who want the highlights, followed by the details.
+ Discreet bag appearance; doesn't shout "I'm a camera bag!" in inch high letters
+ Flip-top lid; folds away from your body, provides quick access to gear
+ Generous interior; approximtely 6½" wide x 7½" high x 5" deep
+ Exceptional workmanship; high-quality construction, premium YKK RC Fuse zippers
+ Fully-adjustable shoulder strap; non-slip pad, can be "worn" all day
+ Seam-sealed rain cover; offers protection against the elements when you need it
+ Carries a full-size DSLR with lens; room for extra lenses and additional gear
+ Removable interior dividers; can be adjusted to hold rangefinder or micro 4/3rd systems
+ Stretchable side pockets on each end; good for water bottle or accessories
+ Compact overall exterior size; fits easily almost anywhere
+ Organizer section on front flap; holds memory cards, LensPen, business cards, etc.
+ Front pocket under the front flap; can hold spare batteries, manuals, and such
- No Velcro 'Sound Silencers' on the front flap as found on other Think Tank bags
What surprised me the most was how much gear this SubUrban Disguise 5 bag could carry, and there's there's still a bit of room for more. It has no problem carrying my Nikon DSLR with its battery pack and an extra lens, which usually have their home in my larger Think Tank CityWalker 20, but my needs for this one were more specific. This bag was purchased to hold a pair of pro/advanced digital cameras with both of them ready to go, lens hoods and all, for fast shooting. With less than two minutes of adjusting the interior dividers, the bag was ready so that either could be pulled out quickly. So far, this is what I currently have stowed in this bag:
◆ Nikon P7700
◆ Fujifilm X20
◆ Think Tank DSLR Battery Holder 2
◆ Think Tank Pee Wee Pixel Pocket Rocket w/SD Cards
◆ Joby GorillaPod Micro 800 compact tripod
◆ AmazonBasics Wireless Remote Control
◆ LensPen NLP-1
◆ Microfiber cleaning cloth
◆ Leatherman Multitool
◆ Compact USB charger (because you never know)
◆ Coast G10 LED Flashlight
◆ Samsung Galaxy S III phone
◆ Misc. filters, pens, notepads, Galaxy S III batteries and utility items
The workmanship and stitching are exceptional, and the quality of construction makes it stand out from most of the competition. Even with the loaded with gear, the dividers are smooth enough to allow for easy removal when you need your camera quickly. Opening the various compartments is easy, as Think Tank uses the premium YKK RC Fuse abrasion resistant zippers, and this coil zipper has a decent and secure pull on it, allowing for one-hand operation. There's convenient handle strap for lifting the bag when going from place to place, making it very handy when you're taking a cab during inclement weather, and need to grab the bag quickly.
This is one of the lightest camera bags that I have, weighing about one pound. The fabric exterior is treated with a water resistant coating, while the fabric base is coated with polyurethane for more water resistance. It comes with a seam-sealed rain cover, which I relocated to the zippered mesh pocket in the lid. When you unzip the lid, it opens away from you, which enables you to have easy access to your gear.
The Think Tank SubUrban Disguise 5 is efficient as a no-frills camera bag that doesn't look like a camera bag, and is clearly designed by and for photographers. Its inconspicuous and subtle design allow you to blend in instead of being labeled by your gear. This bag blends clean styling, excellent ergonomics and a good carrying capacity for the gear that I use most for street shooting. It's a 5-star product for those who want a bag that works for you instead of against, and is highly recommended.
