Think Tank Streetwalker HardDrive Backpack
We can’t say enough great things about Think Tank bags for professional photographers. Their thoughtful design, attention to detail, and quality craftsmanship definitely makes them one of the top brands I frequently recommend.
Recently, we got our hands on their Think Tank Streetwalker HardDrive Backpack, and we were quite impressed with the quality of this product. This particular model is basically the mother of the Streetwalker line, being the biggest of the three Streetwalker sizes.
Don’t let the description “backpack” fool you, this bag is large. We almost thought it was a rolling airplane carry-on bag at first glance. But once we took it out of the box and started handling it, the lightweight feel and the relatively thin profile definitely showed that this bag was made for portability. One of the more striking features we liked is the amount of padding that comes on this bag. You can tell right away that this bag was designed with abundant padding to protect your gear inside and also plenty of padding to provide comfort for the photographer while carrying it around.
On the inside, the main compartment can easily hold a professional camera body with lens attached, plus 5 more lenses, several flashes, and still have room for more things like extra bodies and flash triggers. On the front flap, you have room for all your miscellaneous accessories, batteries, etc, and they even provide a flash card wallet to organize all your flash cards. Behind the main compartment accessible externally from the side is a slot to hold a 15inch laptop (although it seems it might even squeeze in a 17inch mac, but we didn’t test this). The Streetwalker HardDrive also comes with a removable rain cover.
As I mentioned above, the backpack feature is super comfortable as there is padding everywhere. From the contoured backpack shoulder straps…to the air channelled backside designed for maximum airflow…to the heavily padded lumbar support…this bag does it’s job well the keep photographers comfortable while lugging around lots of gear.
This bag is so feature packed, we didn’t even know how the external tripod mount worked until we stumbled onto this video below. Too bad we’re giving this bag away in an upcoming Fotodeck giveaway…otherwise we’d probably discover even more goodies this bag has to offer if we had a chance to use it longer!
