If you are shooting news, documentaries or working in any run and gun environment you will be well aware of how important it is to stay mobile and lightweight. The last thing you need is your bag getting in the way while you are trying to work. If you try and use a bag that is too small then you can’t carry the gear that you need, if it’s too big, it weighs you down and becomes a burden. This is where the Think Tank TurnStyle sling bag looks to be a perfect compromise between the two.

The TurnStyle v2.0 bags have been designed so that is hugs your body and doesn’t bounce around like a backpack when you are walking or running. The TurnStyle 5 fits a mirrorless body plus two to four lenses, and an eight-inch tablet. The TurnStyle 10 fits a standard size DSLR plus one to two lenses, and an eight-inch tablet. The TurnStyle 20 fits a standard size DSLR plus one to three lenses, and a 10” tablet. Of course you can also customise these bags to put whatever accessories you need to cary for your shoot.

The nice think about using a sling style bag is you can move it quickly from your back to your chest without having to take the bag off. This makes it extremely fast for accessing whatever equipment you need to use.

The bags have dividers inside and also have a nice external pocket for keeping things like your wallet or phone. The TurnStyle bags allow for easy access to your equipment by undoing justine zip.

The shoulder strap looks to be very wide and should be nice and comfortable to use over long prods of time. If you are working in a location where safety is a concern you can rotate the bag around to be placed on your chest so all your items are in plain site at all times.
