The overall exterior of the TurnStyle V2.0 sling bags is treated with a durable water resistant coating. The back features 320 gram air mesh to provide ventilation and eliminate the risk of chaffing. Also on the back, at the bottom of the bag, there’s a secret pocket that stores a seam-sealed rain cover.

Think Tank’s prices don’t seem out of line compared to its competition. The complex functions of company’s bags meet the needs of a variety of professionals.

It is a perfect mirrorless camera bag. The bag is very comfortable even when it is overloaded.

I’ve found what I love in a full-size camera/laptop bag but it’s overkill for everyday trips to the park or quick meetings, so having a sling that is simple and small is important to me and the TurnStyle series camera bag is perfect for these purposes.

Think Tank has once again produced a highly usable, low-profile camera bag that was clearly designed by and for photographers.
