If you aren't already familiar with my reviews, here's the deal- I only review items that I've chosen to purchase. What that means is that I did a bunch of research before I pulled the trigger and knew that this particular choice was probably the best for my purposes. These are the types of reviews that I like to read when I'm considering a new piece of gear.
Think Tank is certainly no new-comer to the world of camera bags, although this particular bag and the mirrorless mover line are both new. You can go check out their reviews and other products to get a feel for the quality of work they do. This line is specifically designed to complement the smaller Mirrorless cameras that are gaining popularity. There is a smaller model and a couple of larger models.
The model I chose, is the Mirrorless Mover 10. It's designed for a camera and 1 to 2 lenses depending on size. This bag has a Magnetic flap that swings over the top of the two way zipper of the main compartment. Insided the main compartment is a cell phone holder/divider partition that has slots for a couple of SD cards on one side. On the underside of the lid is a transluscent mesh pocket that's a great fit for a filter or an SD card. There's a zippered pocket on the front that has a retainer strap to make sure you don't lose the included rain cover. There are pockets on both sides of the bag. One side is a stretchy lycra that can hold a filter in a case. The other side is a pleated, but non-stretchy pocket.
Theres a plain nylon shoulder strap included and a woven fabric grab handle across the top of the case. In addition, there is a loop on the back of the bag for attaching to other bags or your belt.
The first thing you'll notice is the high quality of the hardware on this bag. I've used a handful of other bags in this size and price range and they all use cheaper plastic parts and less-solid zippers. If I have one complaint it would be that the strap is a little too narrow. As a result, I'm using a wider and heavier strap that came with a Waterfield Sleeve Case for one of my old Macbooks. The strap is nice quality, just too narrow for my tastes.
The seams are all really nice with an obvious attention to detail that is missing on a lot of other bags of this type. The materials are really nice. The fabrics are heavy duty and well engineered for their purposes.
Size (AKA what fits inside?)
I was using a competitor's bag and had to look for something else when I upgraded camera bodies from the Sony NEX 5N, to the NEX 7. The body is taller, and the lens is shifted just a little toward the right hand side (when looking at it from the front). The other bag was a perfect fit for the 5N with one extra lens, but just a little too small for the same setup with the new body. Here are some images that show the orientation that I use.
I place an extra lens in the bottom of the bag from front-to-rear and then place the camera in grip first on top of that. I can also still fit a cleaning cloth and a battery in the bottom below the grip, but there's plenty of space in the front pocket for those items. I usually have a Gordy's leather wrist strap on my camera and that fits in the case just fine. The stock Sony strap is pretty small and fits just fine too, but larger straps with neoprene pads and quick releases are tricky to fit inside.
I use the stretchy side pocket for a Neutral Density Filter in a case and the pocket under the lid for an SD card and a UV filter or lens cap. An extra battery and a remote fit in the front pocket.
You may notice that there's another divider in my photos. I borrowed that one from a Lowepro bag that I already owned to act as a buffer between my camera and the spare lens. I wish Think Tank included something like this, but hey, you work with what you've got.
If you are looking for a well-made bag for your Mirrorless or compact camera, I recommend you check this one out. I'm a couple months in and so far I'm very pleased.
