Think Tank Photo Releases the Redesigned Urban Disguise® V2.0 Series Shoulder Bags
“Carry the Right Gear with Less Fear”

SANTA ROSA, CALIF – For photographers operating in urban or dangerous environments, carrying thousands of dollars worth of photo equipment can be an invitation to have their gear stolen.  Now, with Think Tank Photo’s completely upgraded and larger Urban Disguise® shoulder bags available in October, photographers can travel in style while still protecting their valuable equipment from prying eyes.

The Urban Disguise V2.0 Series is specifically designed for professional digital SLR equipment, with some models including special laptop compartments.  Each model features multiple pockets, YKK lockable zipper sliders, a comfortable, padded shoulder strap, and a seam-sealed rain cover.  Specifically:

  • Urban Disguise 35 V2.0 – Carries a 13.3” laptop with a regular size DSLR or a 10” netbook with a pro size DSLR.  Also carries a 70-200 f2.8 attached to a DSLR with two to three additional lenses.

  • Urban Disguise 40 V2.0 – Carries regular or pro size DSLR with a standard zoom lens attached and two to four additional lenses.

  • Urban Disguise 50 V2.0 – Carries up to a 15.4” laptop, a regular or pro size DSLR with a standard zoom attached, and two to four additional lenses.

  • Urban Disguise 60 V.20 – Carries up to a 17” laptop, a regular or pro size DSLR with a standard zoom attached, and three to five additional lenses.

  • Urban Disguise 70 V2.0 – Carries up to two pro size DSLRs with lenses attached in main compartment.  Can fit a 70-200 f2.8 attached to a pro size DSLR.

“This design concept is the culmination of years of observation of photojournalists and other photographers who have jury-rigged their bags to decrease their public exposure,” said Think Tank Photo founder and lead designer Doug Murdoch.  “Whether you are a professional who wishes to maintain a lower profile in dangerous situations or a serious amateur who wishes to lessen the risk of having your gear ripped off, the Urban Disguise’s low profile allows you to carry the right gear with less fear.”

Think Tank Photo Releases Completely Redesigned Digital Holsters™
“Expandable Holster Style Camera Bags for Quick Access”

The Digital Holsters also feature a side pocket for holding memory cards, a soft flap to cover the camera’s LCD, a shoulder strap, and an externally accessible seam-sealed rain cover in every model.  They fit most tripod plates while attached to the camera.

They come in five sizes:

  • Digital Holster 10 V2.0 – Form fitting to a small, regular size DSLR with a zoom lens attached.

  • Digital Holster 20 V2.0 - Form fitting to a regular size DSLR and a 24-70 f2.8 with lens hood in position or reversed.  When the “Pop Down” feature is extended it will also hold a 70-200 f2.8 with the hood reversed.
