Thinktank Spectral 10 review

This is going to be really short post. Review of the Thinktank Spectral 10 sling bag.

I wanted something just nice in size, that fits the following needs:

  • Light
  • Holds a variety of item
  • Can fit something as big as a 200mm f2 with hood
  • As small as it gets to fit my X series camera and 2 small primes with the 200mm
  • Has zipper pockets to hold other stuff
  • Durable

When I visited TKfoto, even they found this request rather hard. The 200mm f2 fuji has a really huge hood but thankfully it’s not exactly long.

They recommended me the Spectral 10 and after some testing in the shop, it seems to fit my needs. TKfoto offered to exchange within. a few days if it doesn’t.

I got home and immediately put everything in. And lucky me it all fits.

XT 30 with the 23/50/200mm f2. Charger, spare battery and two NP970 for my lights. It also has a zipper infront for my passport and also a small tablet, a zipper cover if you want to ensure nothing falls out, and a magnetic clasp for the top cover that has a nifty pull to unlock mechanism. So no forgetting to lock the bag and spilling your stuff out.

The total weight of my gear and bag weighs below 5 kg. It’s pretty light considering that half the weight is the 200mm!

So it’s all pretty good really. Small bag that fits everything. I recommend if you have a setup like mine: one huge Telephoto and a few other smaller prime.
