REVIEW: Think Tank Photo City Walker 10

I’ve been very happy with my Think Tank Photo bags lately, so that’s why you haven’t heard much from me about any new bags in a while. While I have been getting new bags from TTP, none have really grabbed my attention enough to warrant the energy of a new blog article – until now.

Now I mentioned a while back when I reviewed the Urban Disguise 40 that it was a great city / around the town bag, so when I got this fashionable & lightweight equivalent I was intrigued. I’m happy to say that it exceeded my expectations by having all that I loved about the Urban Disguise series and a whole lot more!

One really useful feature is that you can actually remove the interior to repurpose this bag for non photography uses, and then return the center insert to use it as a photography bag again. Here’s a quick shot to show what I mean:

This is really just a very lightweight and fashionable improvement over the Urban Disguise series, so if you like that series you’ll love this one!

Video Review

A picture is worth a thousand words, but a video is worth even more. As a result, I’ve created another one of my famously bad videos to show you how to load this bag with a ton of stuff and still have room for more:


Lightweight, fashionable, affordable and great for around the town usage – what’s not to love about that?! I’ve been using this bag quite a bit since it arrived and I can’t recommend it enough. If for some reason you don’t like the blue version shown here, you’ll be happy to know a black version is still possible too. If you feel this bag is still too small there’s two larger sizes – the City Walker 20 and City Walker 30. All bags are also available in black without blue accents.

It’s my opinion that Think Tank Photo bags are the best made bags on the market. In fact, they are the only bags I trust with my gear! This is a fine addition to the huge collection, and I highly recommend it!

Just when I was about to splurge for the Retrospective 7.... Besides aesthetics, would you say there are any other significant differences between the two?

Ron Martinsen said...

Shawn V,

The biggest difference is that the Retrospective is made with a lightweight denim like material and it lacks all of the pockets that you find in the City Walker.

I gave my Retrospective away after getting the City Walker - no comparison. I much prefer this one!

Thanks Ron, that's helpful. Will be ordering one through your link shortly. Cheers!

Ron, great review and I agree with your recommendation on the TT City Walker 10. Just returned from a month in Europe. Thought my experience may helps others. My plan was to carry my gear in a carryon Gura Gear Bataflae 26L: One side for the Benro Travel Angle II and the other for cameras and lens.The insert in the CW 10 was too high for the 26L so I bought the Clik Elite Camera Capsule which fits perfectly in the CW10 and the 26L.While walking around cities, etc,the CW 10 w/ the Clik Elite insert works great. When travelling location to location, the Clik Elite goes into the 26L and the CW10 folds flat in the luggage.
