I am very interested in buying a roller bag this year for travel and storage of my gear. Right now I have gear in 3 different bags. I have taken a liking to the Thinktank brand of products but am definitley open to any other brands if they work for me. Can anyone share thier personal opinion on a roller bag and will it fit in the overhead of a comercial plane.

Thank you

I'm also looking for a roller bag. I love Think Tank and their quality of the bags they produce.

The airport takeoff is in the lead, because of the hided backpack straps.

A hardcase from pelican is also a possibility but I'm more for a Think tank bag.

Spacious interior with removable exterior trolley. Internally, it's deep enough for a 70-200 2.8L standing up, long enough for 5001B Nano Stands, and wide enough for bodies, lenses, flashes & accessories.

I still haven't figured out exactly how much stuff I can get into this bag, but it's a lot!

I picked up the Airport Takeoff because of the straps. It should hold what I keep in my Domke in an easy-to-travel-with container. It definitely holds the extra stuff I want accessible but not with me when we're on the road. As for "everything", the bag I have for that is called a "closet".
