Want the Billing­ham’s dis­creet­ness but in a more mod­ern-look­ing de­sign? The Ret­ro­spec­tive’s laid-back look and washed cot­ton can­vas ex­te­rior (which comes in a choice of three colours: black, ‘Blue Slate’ and mid-grey ‘Pine­stone’) should be ideal. The trouble is, the ca­sual feel makes the bag squashy and vul­ner­a­ble to knocks, while gaps at ei­ther end of the top flap leave your kit open to the el­e­ments and un­scrupu­lous char­ac­ters.

It’s not all bad news, though, as there’s plenty of stor­age for your Nikon with a siz­able at­tached lens, plus three fur­ther lar­gish lenses. A 13-inch lap­top will slot into the back of the main com­part­ment, and if the side pock­ets aren’t large enough to store all your ac­ces­sories, op­tional pouches can be at­tached to the bag.

Which­ever fin­ish you go for, the Ret­ro­spec­tive 40 keeps your cam­era kit nicely cam­ou­flaged
