Introducing the
RETROSPECTIVE BACKPACK 15L
FOR DSLR & MIRRORLESS CAMERAS

Built for Backroad Adventure Travel
Whether bushwhacking through the outback or horse packing in the Wild West, the Retrospective Backpack 15 is built for back-road adventure travel.

This classic-styled rucksack features rugged yet form-fitting canvas that is treated with DWR to repel the elements. A zippered security flap under the lid tucks away to provide rapid top access, while the back panel offers full access to your gear, including a 15-inch laptop.

Superior construction, comfortable harness and legendary Think Tank quality inspires confidence so you can focus on the shot.

“The combination of photo and personal gear carry makes the Retrospective Backpack the perfect bag for adventure travel,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank CEO and Lead Designer. “It’s a natural addition to the Retrospective shoulder bag series, with all of the style and design details that have made the line so popular.”
