Sub Urban – Compact Shoulder Camera Bags

| February 2, 2014

I was asked for some advice on a “regular camera bag” for a “regular sized dSLR” and I thought I’d do a quick comparison for you all of the Sub Urban Disguise camera bags we released last year. You could click that link back there and go to the thinkTank main website thingy and read about them in detail there, or you’re welcome to stick around and hear, in fewer words, what I use mine for and what I keep in them – mostly.

Buy your Sub Urban via this link and get a special gift at check out (Only countries where we don’t have a distributor, sorry!) 

So, there are four sizes, the 5, 10, 20 and 30.. The 30 also takes an iPad if you’re so inclined, and I know a lot of us are these days – for example, CamRanger works well with an iPad (See it in action here) ….or maybe you don’t and that’s fine, too!

Each of the Sub Urban bags will take a dSLR and we say on the website that you’re after using a standard dSLR in the bag – but just for your info, and this is my personal experience, the SU5 is just fine with a Canon 30D + Battery Grip + 50mm f/1.4 lens [In the main photo below, the Canon with the leopard strap (sadly we don’t make a Leopard strap – this one is from My Funky Camera) is my little boy’s camera, the Sub Urban Disguise 5 is his camera bag] and, despite the camera placement, my Sony NEX gear lives in the SU10.


Above you see the Sub Urban 5, Sub Urban 10, Sub Urban 20 and the Sub Urban 30.. That’s Melbourne in the background.

Here’s a shot of the insides of each of the Sub Urban Disguise camera bags..
