Think Tank Street Walker

Having tested so many Lowepro backpacks and shoulder bags, I think it is time to try out the Think Tank range. I got my hands on a Think Tank Street Walker.

Think Tank Street Walker is the smallest of Think Tank’s Street Walker series. If you want something bigger, check out the Think Tank Street Walker Pro

First impression when I compare this to Lowepro backpacks is that Think Tank camera bags have a bit less padding and hence feel less bulky which is what I prefer. Think Tank build quality is great for all of their products. They are very confident with their products which is why they offer “No Rhetoric Warranty” on all of their products.

Comparing the size of Think Tank Street Walker (Left) and Lowepro Flipside 400 AW (Right). The Flipside 400 is wider, thicker and bulkier which is more suitable for hiking purposes with the extra padding. Both have tripod mount on the front, rain cover and waist belt. The Flipside 400 AW features a much thicker waist belt which will give you a better support for those long hiking trips.

If we compare the internal space  between  Lowepro Mini Trekker AW (Left), Lowepro Flipside 400 AW (Middle) and Think tank Street Walker (Right) . Notice the padding on Think Thak is thinner. All three bags are about the similar size, with plenty of partition supplied to customise your layout. The partition with the mini trekker and Flipside is much more fitted for small lenses. The Think Tank partition is much wider which is good if you plan to have the lens hood reversely attached.

Internal compartment size comparison with Think Tank Street Walker Pro and Street Walker. The Pro version is a bit bigger, but not much.
 
 

What can you fit in a Think Tank Street Walker ? Here is how I packed the Think Tank Street Walker. You will notice as mentioned above,  the partition is too wide for small lenses which means it doesn’t give your small lenses a tight fit. Also the internal space is not fully utilised.

  • Nikon D700 (Unfortunately, it won’t accommodate with a battery grip MB-D10)
  • Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8
  • Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 (attached)
  • Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8
  • Nikon 50mm f/1.4
  • Nikon 85mm f/1.4

Overall, I would say the Think Tank Street Walker is a better option as a general street walk bag (as it is named) because it is less bulky. It is well made, but I feel it is less useful than Lowepro’s counterparts. The width of the partition is just not quite right, not fully utilise the internal space. If you need something with more padding, Lowepro Trekker series or Flipside 400 AW might be a better choice.
