    It’s the perfect match. An Airport international for longer trips by car and a Retrospective 40 for short trips by plane. 2 ThinkTank solutions for a perfect photo-life.

  • Alexandra Londono

    I Love that bag….

  • Jeremy

    Expanding our photography business venture and this bag just fits our brand perfectly. We would do a video review of this bag and post it on facebook so everyone can see just how amazing your products are!

  • tonyhart

    The retrospective range is my favourite ThinkTank range, and, as an owner of the brilliant 5, I’d love a larger option for when I need to carry more gear!

  • Cindy Jacobs Longfellow

    because bigger is always better…..right??!!

  • RayFrisby

    I would really love the Pinestone Retrospective 40 or 50, it’s a fabulous looking bag and it’s got a great compartment for my 15″ Macbook Pro.

  • Guest

    I would really love the Pinestone Retrospective 50, it’s a fabulous looking bag and it’s got a great compartment for my 15″ Macbook Pro.

  • Paul Chambers

    A Retrospective 40 perfect for my Nikon Kit. Would appreciate winning on very much.#tgsdcbg

  • Paul Lunnon

    I would love this bag what more can I say!

  • Nick Karen M

    I would like one of these bags so I can carry my gear safely and discreetly while shooting street photography! !

  • Ipabass

    A retrospective 40 would be perfect for carrying all my gear – great design!

  • Chris Pearson

    I’d like a Retro 40 as it looks to be a perfect day bag for me. Room for my laptop, D700 and 24-105 OS with enough room left over for my lunch as well.

  • Jp Wakan

    I’d like a retrospective 40 because it is rhe perfect size for my photo gear and I like it

  • AW

    I’d sell it to buy a Retrospective 5 and a Mirrorless Mover, so I had two excellent bags for my mirrorless system. 🙂

  • Steve Smith

    Because it fits all the gear I like to carry

  • Phill Joshua

    Would love to travel in style with a Pinestone 40. Have not seen a better built/designed camera shoulder bag.

  • Rob Williams

    The ’40…. ‘What WOULDN’T I put in it’ would be a more applicable question… Seriously though, I’m sick of my two tiny camera bags and a laptop bag. I ‘affectionately’ call the process, ‘triple bagging’. Having a 40 would make life so dang easy 🙂

  • Hello from Poland, Hajnówka. Maybe you will send this one to Europe? 😉 My Mamiya RZ67 and Nikon D800 are waiting for new Retrospective40 :)) #tgsdcbga

  • Alexander Muth

    Retrospective 40!
    I love it!

  • Guest

    Hello from Poland, Hajnówka. Maybe you will send this one to Europe? 😉 My Mamiya RZ67 and Nikon D800 are waiting for new Retrospective40 :))

  • Lex Schulte

    I can think of forty reasons why I would love to have this bag. But my main reason will still be that I need a new bag because my cat urinated in my old and I can’t get rid of the smell… And off course I would like to show off with a brand new Retrospective 40 (Pinestone)!

  • Huey Tang

    The Retrospective 40 (Pinestone) would definitely come in handy in carrying my camera, few lens, speedlights, laptop and more! Definitely the inconspicuous camera bag that is made with the best material. Wish this will be my first Think Tank bag!

  • Hidenao Ben Nakagawa

    I like 40 because it holds lapstop and tons of gear.

  • Fum Baz

    > why you’d like a Retrospective 40

    Because Think Tank Photo gear is the most awesome.

  • Manny Malk

    i would love a Retrospective 40, my macbook pro needs a new home especially when trying to carry it along with my growing Canon DSLR setup plus lenses and speedlites that currently is cramming in a pine stone Retrospective 30, Steroid Speed Belt, with pixel racing harness and Digital Holster collection with pouches…I even got my wife the blue slate Retrospective 7 to use as a Diaper Bag for our son.

  • Jess Perea

    A Retro 40 in Pine would hold my great and more on my next trip

  • Jurgis Maleckas

    The Retrospective 40 (Pinestone colour) – is made for my gear – DSLR with 70-200mm lens – with spare pockets sections for the other bits and pieces. great to travel with as it doesn’t ‘shout’ that its a camera bag – silenced both with its flap opening and its overall appearance.

  • Magda Augustyn-Coulter

    I would love to be the lucky winner! Retrospective 40 would be perfect for my upcoming trip to Europe. Being able to fit my camera and few necessities would be so nice. 🙂 Walking the streets with this gorgeous Retrospective 40 and nothing but would be a lifesaver. 🙂

  • John Martinec

    The 40 will hold all of my gear plus some room for snacks or something!

  • Michael Burton

    Would Love a Black Retro 40, any reason to buy more gear to fill it must be good, right?

  • J. Adam Sowers

    The more ThinkTank bags, the better! I’m up to 4 so far…

  • Thomas Gilbert

    I need to 40 so I can really throw my back out hauling all my gear. The more I can carry, the more I shall.

  • Ahmad Iskandar Bin Abdullah

    I missed on the Retro 20 and 30. Since I am in my 40’s the Retro 40 will suit me well.

  • Cameron K. Fong

    The Retrospective 40 would perfect for those days when I need to carry a little more

  • Kelvin Tran

    It’d be great for me at school so I can bring my camera with my laptop without needing a second bag!

  • Robert L. Byram

    Ah, just the bag for me and my Panasonic Lumix G6, 45-175 Lens, MeFoto tripod, filters, extra batteries, iPad, chargers, etc.

  • Ami Wang

    I’ve never had a “real” camera bag, and free bags are the best! 😉

  • g. leong

    quality built camera bag

  • Ah, the Retrospective 40, such a tempting bag. A midrange carrier that just swells to accomodate gear so effortlessly. Had I thee within my grasp, I’d stuff a 5DMKII, a 17-40mm and a 24-105mm lens into it along with a strobe, extension cable and Lumiquest modifier, because, well, you never know. Of course, there would be all this room for other stuff, including a tablet PC and other nifty stuff, because, well, you never know.

  • tanguerochino

    Day 6 – The Retrospective 40 will make for a great weekend bag. All my still photo gears and I’ll still have room for a change of clothes.

  • t sheppard

    A retro 40 would work great for my 2 omd’s and the 6 lens. Easy on the back and looks great.

  • Hoon Sohn

    Great proven brand.

  • Idgie

  • Nigel Morley

    Retro 40 just perfect for all my gear, my lunch and even half a bottle of sauvignon blanc …that’s assuming my son doesn’t steal it as he says retro is in !!

  • steve

    I’d like a retrospective 40 for my Micro 4/3 kit – Panny GH2 and six lenses (fish eye to 100-300) plus iPad, and who knows what else. Sorry I don’t do instagram (don’t have an iphone)
