Gear Review: Think Tank Sling Bag

In Camera Bag, Gear Review by Patrick

Think Tank Turnstyle 10 v2.0 Sling Bag (Indigo Blue)

Recently I needed a different more comfortable way of carrying both my DSLR and Mirror-less systems for quick family trips. These are trips that I don’t require a lot of gear. In the past I have used the Think Tank City Walker 10.

The bag has worked fine, but I never really like the front flap and the fact that it had to ride on the hip. This could make it awkward at times when having to navigate through a crowd.

Enter to Think Tank Turnstyle 10 V2 Sling bag. I was introduced to this bag through a friend who had one and really liked it. Right away, two things drew me to this bag. One, it is behind me out of the way making it way easier to travel through crowds and even at indoor exhibits.

The second thing was how it can be shifted to the front and become a easy way to access gear. This was a big plus as the City walker bag did not allow for this type of functionality.

The build is solid and it is water-resistant and holds a DSLR with three lenses and accessories. Inside interior dividers within the main zippered camera compartment. It also accommodates a small 8″ tablet in a dedicated padded zippered exterior pocket at the back of the bag. For holding accessories, there are assorted pockets throughout the sling.

It has been comfortable to wear for longer periods of time and is well padded on both the backside and the shoulder straps. The fabric is breathable allowing for air ventilation to keep you cool on hot days. It has a quick release strap and a rain cover as with all Think Tank Bags. I highly recommend this type of bag for day trips when you need to ravel light and still need to have multiple lenses.
