Think Tank Streetwalker Pro Review

I’m really impressed with what Think Tank have created in their Streetwalker backpack series. The Streetwalker Pro in particular is the perfect bag for my setup – holding an incredible amount of gear in what on the outside, looks like a fairly small and nondescript backpack. I also really like the Think Tank Lens Changer bags.

When I’m in walk and shoot mode – I use a Lens Changer 50, Lens Changer 75 Pop Down, Skin Strobe and an R U Thirsty water bottle bag – all attached to my Yates 1.75 inch Cobra CQB Belt. The belt wears just like an ordinary belt. And with a flannel short sleeve shirt covering the Skin Strobe at the back – it doesn’t actually ‘look’ like I’m carrying that much gear.

Here’s one configuration that I use for the Streetwalker Pro (click on the images for large size).

A pro body with three pro lenses, a flash, accessories and a tripod. The Streetwalker Pro copes with it all brilliantly and is extremely comfortable to wear. There’s also a deep groove down the back and lumbar padding – which lets air in, keeping your back cooler than a flat padded backpack would.

Think Tank really pay attention to detail as well. With the backpack and a few lens changers – all the rain covers are clearly labelled – so you know which rain cover to grab in a hurry to get your gear covered when you need to.

My only minor gripe – is that I wish they’d placed a cross strap just above the side pockets – one on either side – so that I could attach a Lens Changer bag to the side of the Streetwalker Pro for a little extra storage when needed.

Amazing bag. Thanks a bunch Think Tank. You’ve made a great bag at a very reasonable price to boot. :-)

I am so fed up with my current camera bag. This backpack looks perfect: it holds everything you need, and travels easily. Thanks for the info!
