This one has pockets/mounts on both sides of the bag for lightstands. I personally hope it'll let me mount my bazooka to atleast one of the sides, even better if it would take 2 of em.

Internal dimension of 27.5", external 30", I think only something like nano stands will fit in.:)


5dmk3, 35L, 85L II, 300mm f2.8 IS I, 400mm f5.6
Fuji XT-1, 14mm f2.8, 23mm f1.4, 35mm f1.4, 56mm f1.2, 90mm f2, 50-140mm f2.8

While I can understand the advantage of not looking flat out like a case full of expensive camera gear, I'd have a hard time justifying the 300 difference between this and a pelican 1650. its has a few advantages like being able to take lightstands attached to the sides.

Sadly, being a Think Tank addict I'm sure I'll find some excuse to buy this gorgeous case.

In one of Chase Jarvis' vids he mentions putting gear in a Pelican case then putting that in an el cheapo suitcase. That would give you the protection and nondescript look of the TT for much less.

That, and I doubt the TT is water tight.

And that solution would also give you far more protection.
I recently purchased TT Airport Security V2 whilst on a trip to the US. On an internal flight they would not allow the case onboard so I had to check it at the gate.
When I got it back a camera and lens had been damaged :-(

TT will claim that it is not designed to be used as checked baggage but they advertise it as having a TSA approved lock!!!!!

Imo, checking the allowed carry on dimension is your responsibility, and while they may try their best to adjust it, onboard items dimension can be varied between the carriers, so i think your opinion is a little weak to blame them.

Thanks for your opinionated post.

But with over 3 million miles of international air travel under my seat I'm well aware of the on board luggage capacities of different planes. I also have a Piper Seneca and you don't get much in that :-)

I wasn't blaming them, I was pointing out the fact that if you do get into a situation where they do have to go into the planes hold then they do not offer a great deal of protection.
My experience may help someone else from sustaining several thousand dollars worth of damage if they read that the case is "USA domestic airline carry on size."

I've had frequent flight where I've had to gate check a Tamrac Roller case and never had a problem. But the Think Tank does not offer the same amount of protection.

Ultimately I was to blame because I had the final choice as to whether to trust my case in the hold. I simply made the wrong choice.

Ever heard of "Gate checks"? I've seen legal carry-ons being redirected to the hold at the gate. Yeah, it's the carriers who encourage everyone to try to shove everything into their carry-on bags by charging for the first checked bag. I'd rather see them charge for carry-ons that won't fit under the seat.

I don't think he understands that itineraries and aircraft can be changed at the last minute.
On this trip we were scheduled to fly first class from Columbus to Chicago, then Business to Heathrow. We got to the airport and was told at the desk that planes were being delayed into Chicago so the would be putting us onto an earlier flight so we would not miss our connection.
We were also told that we would be assigned out seats at the gate - alarm bells should have started ringing then.
At the gate we found out that it was a one class plane and a much smaller aircraft - thats the reason for having to check the bag.
In over 30 years of flying this is only the second time I've had equipment damaged so I've been lucky.

As I posted before, I accept full responsibility for the damage because I had a choice. The really dumb thing is that my wife said she thought we should put the camera bodies into her handbag :-(

Just FYI:

I see that Adorama has the TT "Logistics Manager Roller" listed on eBay today and you can probably get 8% Bing cashback if you are in the market for one of these. They say they have "more than 5 available" in the ad.

Saw one in person at the local brick & mortar the other day...

Opened it up and the first thing that struck me: It's packed (and I mean packed) with dividers. There's like a lifetime supply stuffed into the thing.

You could tweak the interior layout of this until the cows come home to when they go back out again! :D

Yeah ... Think Tank is pretty good about providing PLENTY of dividers for any configuration you might dream up! I have several Think Tank bags, and use marked zip-lock bags to keep the extra dividers organized so that I can include the proper ones in the event I might sell one of the bags in the future. I wouldn't want the new owner to miss out on the "divider overload" of a new TT bag! :lol::rolleyes:
