Think Tank // Urban Disguise 50 Classic (10th Anniversary Edition)

Think Tank Urban Disguise Review

I have just received a new camera bag from the good folks at Think Tank, it's called the Urban Disguise 50 Classic. It has been released as a new limited edition item and i’m glad I have one. Just like all of their products, this is a brilliant and high quality photography bag. The best thing for me is that it’s small and compact, however it still seems to have a lot of space. In testing it out last night, I managed to fit a gripped DSLR with an attached 135mm f/2 lens, along with 4 other lenses & their hoods (50mm f/1.2, 35mm f/1.4, 100mm Macro f/2.8 and a 24mm f/2.8)

It also fits a 15” Apple Macbook Pro comfortably (in a separate padded compartment) and a 10” iPad or tablet! A bit of shuffling around and it seems I can sneak a Canon 600EX Speedilte in there too. I also tested fitting 2 x DSLR’s with attached lenses and it worked a treat, along with a couple other lenses. It comes with the usual removable foam dividers, shoulder straps and a handy rain cover too

This bag looks good, feels good, secures my gear and protects my equipment. It has many little compartments for all your bits and bobs - little pockets everywhere (ideal for passport, wallet, memory cards, phone, charger etc). Being a compact size, it’s also perfect for daily use and all your fundamentals. It will easily fit in the airplane overhead compartments without calling attention as an obvious camera bag

The airport staff seem to be getting very strict nowadays and for anyone who travels a lot, this bag could be the answer. On 2 of my last trips my hand luggage has been weighed, and now with most airlines in NZ lowering their weight limit for hand luggage down to 7kg, it’s only going to become harder to get away with more gear packed in your bag. So I think having a smaller, compact bag is very important

Here are some pics, front and side view, with my iPhone 5 next to it, this gives an idea of the size of this bad boy

If you are after a slightly bigger bag just like this one (to fit a 17” laptop), then checkout the Urban Disguise 60 Classic

It’s fair to say that once again, Think Tank have thought about everything when creating this bag and as far as i’m concerned, they're some of the best camera bags on the planet! They really do create the best carrying solution for your camera gear

Good quality camera bags are essential! This is the 4th Think Tank product I now own, and I know it won’t be the last. The others I have are the Airport Ultralight V2.0, the Airport Takeoff Rolling Bag, and the Retrospective Pinestone Shoulder Bag. I have a feeling i'll be using this one a lot
