Bag and accessory manufacturer Think Tank has announced that it will introduce a new range of shoulder bags and a backpack for compact system camera users in April this year. Dubbed the ‘Urban Approach’ range the bags are said to be ‘low profile’ to allow the photographer to carry equipment without standing out, and will be finished in low-contrast matte black.

The shoulder bag will come in two sizes, called Urban Approach 5 and Urban Approach 10. The 5 has space for a medium sized body, up to three lenses and an 8-inch tablet, while the 10 can hold a large mirrorless camera, up to four lenses and a 10-inch tablet. The Urban Approach 15 Backpack can accommodate two medium to large bodies, up to eight lenses and a laptop of up to 15-inch as well as a 10-inch tablet.

The bags are all treated with a water repellent coating on the outside, while the inner face of the fabric is covered with polyurethane. Each of the bags features removable foam dividers, a 1680D ballistic nylon exterior and YFF RC Fuse zippers.

Think Tank's new battery and memory card wallet will cost $9.99 when it becomes available next month.

The shoulder bags will cost $119.75 for the 5 and $134.75 for the 10, while the backpack will be $169.75.
