Think Tank Intros New Shoulder Bag, Convertible Roller

February 6, 2017

Think Tank has updated its Signature Series of shoulder photo bags plus a lighter version of its Airport Roller bag at WPPI 2017.

The hand-sewn Signature-series bags are weather-resistant and offer leather details and metal hardware.

There are two new models in the line, a Signature 10 and Signature 13. The former fits a 10-inch tablet, the latter fits a 13-inch laptop.

Both models offer a dedicated phone pocket, luggage pass-through handle, front cover large enough to fit a strobe and zippered front pockets for smaller items.

The bags have a customizable quilted velex interior to protect your camera gear with dividers that can be made into shelves to stack smaller lenses. The dividers and bottom foam can be removed from the bag completely if you want to collapse it.

You’ll get a seam-sealed rain cover to protect the bag during heavy rain.

The Signature 10 ($249) is large enough for a standard DSLR and up to four prime lenses and accessories. The Signature 13 ($279) can house a standard DSLR with a zoom lens attached plus up to three additional lenses and accessories.

Roll It Up

The company’s Airport TakeOff V2.0 is a rolling bag that converts into a backpack. Version 2.0 is 15 percent lighter than the original, the company said.

The TakeOff features a pocket for a tripod mount or water bottle, a top compartment that cradles large camera bodies and interior zippered pockets for accessories. The retractable handle, wheels and feet are user-replaceable in case an overzealous TSA agent manhandles your bag.

The bag has handles on three sides and includes a seam-sealed rain cover. The exterior is weather-resistant. The TakeOff V2.0 will set you back $370.
