Think Tank Street Walker

Having tested so many Lowepro backpacks and shoulder bags, I think it is time to try out the Think tank range. I got my hands on a Think Tank Street Walker. First impression when compared to Lowepro backpacks is that the Think Tank has a bit less padding and hence feel less bulky which is what I preferred. The build quality is good, but not better than Lowepro's. This is probably due to thicker material and padding used on Lowepro bags, so the Lowepro bags feel a bit more solidly made.

Comparison of the size between a Think Tank Street Walker (Left) and Lowepro Flipside 400 AW (Right). The Flipside is wider, thicker and bulkier which is more suitable for hiking purposes. Both have tripod mount on the front, rain cover and waist belt. The Flipside 400 AW features a much thicker waist belt which will give you a better support for those long trips.

Internal space comparison between a Lowepro Mini Trekker AW (Left), Lowepro Flipside 400 AW (Middle) and Think tank Street Walker (Right) . Notice the padding on Think Thank is much thinner. The Mini Trekker AW and Flipside 400 AW can fit a bit more gear than the Think Thank Street Walker.

What can you fit in a Think Tank Street Walker ?

Overall, I would say the Think Tank Street Walker is a better option as a travel bag because it is less bulky. It is well made, but lacks the attention to detail from Lowepro bags. For something bigger and stronger use for hiking, Lowepro Mini Trekker or Flipside 400 AW might be a better choice.
