I love fine craftsmanship

  • Excerpt: I learned my lesson about buying a bag big enough to fit all my gear, but so big I need a hand-truck just to transport it. I needed something for event photography - something that I could actually walk around with for a half a day without hurting my back. The Think Tank Speed Freak 2.0 is EXACTLY what I was looking for. This thing is superbly crafted, and well thought out. The one thing that is missing from most bags is side pockets - places to put water bottles.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Lightweight

Compact and well made

  • Excerpt: This works well for carrying a limited amount of gear. It is advertised to carry a 70-200, 24-70 attached to your camera, and a flash. However, it was designed with the Version 1 24-70 (77mm diameter) in mind. The new Version 2 (82mm diameter lens) makes this combo an extremely tight fit if its adjusted a certain way. When using the waist belt, it is too tight to access your gear unless you loosen the belt.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable

Excellent bag, but be aware of...

Mike, B&H Photo
14 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The Speed Freak is advertised as being able to carry a 70-200 2.8 with hood reversed, a full frame camera with the 24-70 (hood in either position) plus a speed light. While that has been true for a long time, it was designed with Version 1 of the 24-70 lens which is a 77mm diameter. If you have a Version 2 lens which is 82mm diameter, with the same 70-200 & speed light... the fit is extremely tight and makes it very hard to remove your items.

fits the bill

B4, Adorama
20 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Was looking for a smaller, run and gun type bag when I don't need a lot of equipment, and one that would take weight off of my shoulders. This one is just about right and has a good amount of room in a pinch. Have to agree with another reviewer that the top cover zipper opening is pretty pointless. Will see how the belt works over time, its big enough, just not very substantial. But that does allow it to stow away...
  • Pros: Comfortable Strap, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight, Well built quality

Excellent Design

25 October 2013
  • Excerpt: This is my ideal bag. It holds my Canon 6D with 24-105mm attached and still has room for a 17-40mm wide angle and a 70-200mm telephoto. There is also room left over for a few accessories and a water bottle in the outside pockets. Loaded up the bag is a bit heavy for long outings. The extra support you get from using the waist belt/shoulder strap combination makes the load feel much lighter. I love the location of the carry handle on the front edge of the bag.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Ideal Size
  • Cons: Shoulder Strap Too Narrow

Great Bag forntravel

Muehlenbungert, B&H Photo
19 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The bag is almost a space miracle. It does not appear to be very large. But I can carry my 5D with a 24-70 mm lens attached and the 70-200 next to it (both lens hoods mounted backwards). Plus the flash, extra batteries and more. The weight is distributed nicely with the belt and should strap. The bag opens away from your body, a nice feature when traveling. Also the pocket on the backside, it is protected by your body and a good place to store passport, etc.
  • Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Good Protection
  • Cons: Not For A Lot Of Gear

Very nice - but too big for me

SteveH32459, Adorama
21 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I currently own a Think Tank Speed Demon, and love it! I wear it around my waist 100% of the time. I don't think I even know where the shoulder strap is any more.<br /><br />I purchased the Speed Freak because my telephone zoom doesn't quite fit in the Speed Demon. It is about 1&quot; too long. The Speed Freak has plenty of room for the long lens.<br /><br />However, for my use, the Speed Freak is just a little too big and cumbersome.
  • Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Too Big For Me

Great Bag!

  • Excerpt: This is a great bag. I got it to replace a stolen lumbar pack that is no longer made. This is my first Think Tank product and I can see why everyone raves about them. Quality is easily the best of any bag I have owned. Most surprising to me was just how comfortable this bag is and how much it can fit.
  • Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Good Protection
