Las Vegas, NV—Think Tank Photo designed the Retrospective 15L backpack for adventure travel photography. This classic rucksack features rugged yet form-fitting canvas that is treated with DWR to repel the elements.
In addition, a zippered security flap under the lid tucks away to provide top access; the back panel also offers full access to gear, including a 15-inch laptop.
“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.”
