Feature #1

Perfectly suited for standard DSLRs with a pocket for an iPad/11” MacBook Air


The exterior of each Retrospective shoulder bag is purposefully simple, allowing photographers to inconspicuously blend into their shooting environment.


The Retrospective 7 has the interior height to accommodate a 70 - 200 f/2.8. Shown left to right is a Nikon 70 - 200 f/2.8 VRII, Nikon D7000 attached to a 24 - 70 f/2.8 and a Nikon SB-900 speedlight.


The softness and flexibility of the Retrospective series easily allows a pro size DSLR to be carried in the main compartment with a lens attached, facing downward. The Retrospective 7 is pictured here, containing (left to right): a Canon 28 - 135, Canon 5D attached to a 100 mm macro, 580EXII flash.

Mod Compat

The Retrospective bags allow you to attach some of our Modular and Skin gear pouches to increase the capacity of the bag (Sold Separately). Shown is the Retrospective 7 in Slate Blue with a Skin Strobe V2.0 attached. Inside of the Skin Strobe V2.0 is a Nikon SB-900.

Feature #2

The "sound silencers" underneath the main flap are used to suppress the loud tearing sound hook-and-loop makes while opening and closing the bag.  Simply release the sound silencer panels and cover the hook-and-loop strips to prevent the hook-and-loop from contacting.  A clear business card pocket, for identification and spare cards, is also located under the main flap.

Feature #3

A fully adjustable, canvas strap is integrated into each Retrospective bag.  For extra comfort, a breathable cushioned pad slides along the strap for optimum positioning.  Sections of non-slip material on the pad helps keep the entire strap on your shoulder.

Feature #4

The Retrospective series each have a removable carrying handle for convenience.

Feature #5

The seam-sealed rain cover was specially designed to keep the carrying handle and integrated shoulder strap outside the rain cover without compromising protection from the elements.


All the shoulder bags in the Retrospective series are available in three colors, Pinestone, Slate blue or black.


Within the Retrospective's main compartment, are two collapsible nylon pockets (one on each side). These pockets are tall enough to fit most flash units or other accessories. A hook-and-loop strap can be used to secure the contents or it can be tucked into the pocket for quicker access.


The Retrospective series all have a zippered organizer pocket inside the main compartment. It gives photographers enough space for small, but significant, accessories necessary for a successful shoot.
