Think Tank's Photo Spectral Bag

The Spectral may not haunt your nightmares but it will provide a safe, inconspicuous place to carry around your photo gear. Key to the Spectral’s appeal is its magnetic “Fidlock” clasp that pops open quickly and quietly with a single hand movement. Beneath the main flap is a second, zippered flap that can remain open and Velcro’d to the main flap or zippered up for extra security.  The Spectral comes in three sizes. All models share the same material including a waterproof tarpaulin base, YKK zippers, a pass-through for a rolling bag, tripod straps on the underside of the bag and a seatbelt-webbing shoulder pad. The Spectral 8 can fit a standard DSLR body with lens, a 24-70mm f/2.8 and two smaller lenses plus an 8-inch tablet and accessories. The Spectral 10 is roomy enough for a DSLR with 24-70mm attached along with a detached 70-200mm, up to three extra lenses and a 10-inch tablet. The largest member of the family, the 15, can house a DSLR with 24-70mm attached, a detached 70-200mm, up to four extra lenses, a flash, a 10-inch tablet and a 15-inch laptop.

PRICE: $100 (8); $120 (10); $140 (15)
