Think Tank Ubran Disguise 40 Shoulder Bag.

Well, you got to love the way Think Tank names their bags. The Urban Disguise 40 is one of a series of shoulder bags including the Urban Disguise 35, 40, 50, 60, and 70. So it is the second smallest bag in the series. This is a serious bag for professional and advanced amateur photographers (although anyone would benefit from the bag). The Urban Disguise 40 is small enough to be considered for vacation and cruise purposes, yet large enough to hold a surprisingly amount of gear.

There are two versions of this bag - this review is for the newer V2.0 version. However, some original versions are still available at a pretty good discount from left over supply chain stock at various retailers. But Ver 2 of the bag has some nifty attachment capabilities; such as a backpack strap (to convert the bag to a backpack) and a tripod connection kit. If either of these are important to you, I would suggest purchasing V2 of the bag.


One unique feature of the Urban Disguise V2.0 series is this optional backpack strap. This strap converts the shoulder bag to backpack carry. I recently used this strap when I took my camera gear to an all-day event. About half-way through, my shoulder was aching, so I was able to convert the bag and continue on without killing my shoulder.

Think Tank Shoulder Harness V2.0

One criticism I have of the backpack harness is that there is no padding. So I made a padded sleeve that put some padding on the shoulder harness. While this adds a bit more bulk to stowing the harness, my shoulders appreciate it.

Conclusion: Given the lifetime warranty, wear comfort, and use of quality materials throughout, it is hard to beat Think Tank bags. Once you buy one, you will wonder why you waited so long to do so.
