This bag looks like a work horse. I love my smaller Think Tank International - especially when traveling. But it would be nice to have something larger to carry everything comfortably especially when doing jobs in town or places that I drive to. Love all the storage it has.

We have a Logistics Manager at school and we fit in it:

3 Alien bees and cords
3 reflector 7"
1 vagabong mini
1 Orbis ring flash
1 bracket for the orbis
3 Cactus V5 triggers and batt.
1 set of 4 honeycomb grids
2-3 nikon flashes
A gazillion bungee cables

We can easily fit the two big softboxes on top and strap them to the handle.

Work horses? It's an understatement. You can EASILY carry the stands camera and lenses on your back/shoulder with this setup.

A full studio moved around by 1 guy.... They are amazing suit cases!

I dont doubt this think tank case is amazing. I own their hard drive hd and i love it. But i went for the pelican 1650 instead, its heavier but 200 bucks cheaper.

In terms of sheer size...Promaster has studio bags out there this size for 120 bucks...Just no stands on the side support but I buckle my in across the lid. So nice to have the 70-200 place on its cap instead of on its side.

I have one of the Promaster Studio Bag 103 that's close to this size. It more than comfortably fits:

2 Alien Bee B800s
1 Vagabond Mini Lithium
2 7" Reflectors
2 8" Reflectors
2 Standard Power Cords
2 Short Power Cords
1 25 ft Extension Cord
1 Standard Power Strip
Plus a small case that carries my RadioPopper Trigger and 2 RadioPopper JrX Receivers

All that and there's still room to add a third B800 and a set of 7"+8" Reflectors, another set of power cords including a second 25 ft extension cord if needed, and a 2nd VML if I ever needed one.

Retail is $159.99, I managed to pay less than $100 for mine.

i work in the airport and i know that can never be a carry on. TSA would not allow that tripod to do thru security. And it dont look like a check-in luggage either. This bag is a fail.

Interesting...

thats due to the reason that the tipod could be used as a blunt object. Second the strap for the tripod is not secure enough to go thru the belt system as it might come off. third its looks way too big for the aircraft cabin.

I don't think Think Tank claimed it was for carrying on.

i guess they can always get the tripod plastic wrapped with the bag.........

Yep!

Logistics manager never was for "carry on"...

It's just an expensive gear case, in my opinion the Tenba AirCase is the only case I would consider for broncolor if I owned that stuff. I use the AirCase for my Speedotron, nothing comes close. Pelican is great too, but the pick/pluck foam is way, way, way overpriced.Also, I like cases that can be configured differently depending on the job so I have only a few pelicans. I do not think I could pay $500 for this case.

To be fair, this case comes FILLED with velcro seperators. Litterally filled. As in you can't think of a configuration that can't be done.

And think tank warranty is bullet proof. And wheels are cheap to replace.

But yeah, if it was my pesos, it's too pricey.

hmm, doesnt look big enough for my needs. Can anyone recommend a bag that will hold 4 bowens strobes plus modifiers and stands?

I've got the ThinkTank Airport Acceleration V2.0 and god I love it so much. Best bag I've ever had. I can fit my gear to that pack. All I need for weddings is inside it. It's just amazing! I had Lowepro bags before it and I'll never move back to Lowepro. The quality of the bags is just in another level than Lowepro.

Very Expensive. Just get the one Calumet makes for under $150 or even less if you wait for one of their promotions.d
