Hi all,

Okay, got the think tank pro to replace my tamrac expedition 5 that I lost in the ocean...boo...

This is what I am carrying in the bag

14-24
24-70
70-200
D800e
Misc filters
Sb-910
Remote cable etc

1. The bag is thick. I can stand the 14-24 and 24-70 on end and that fits just fine
2. The 70-200 can only lay down. If I lay it down, there is about 3 inches above it and when I walk it moves in the bag. I had to add foam pads to stop the lens from banging around.
3. Because ther are only 2 rows how the dividers can be arranged, you are very limited on the configuration.
4. Now I added the sb-910, and now I ran out of room. The only configuration that works is the 70-200 connected to the camera, the 14-24 on end along with the 24-70 and flash.
5. I mainly have the other lens connected, so it would have been nice to have them attached to the camera ready for shooting. But no, I cannot as there is no room.
6. I depend on the d-rings to hold the camera and tripod
7. The bag works GREAT as a backpack. I carried all the equipment with the d800e and 14-24 attached on the left d-ring. Very light and smooth. I could carry this all day!
8. I attached my steroid tt belt on it just fine. With the belt, the whole issue of weight is a non issue. WORKED AWESOMELY. This is the way to go.
9. All in all, I am happy with the setup...(ie. not returning it!)...is it the best, no.

It comes with a rain cover.
There is a tripod pocket

At the end of the day,I give it a thumbs up.
Get a waist belt...it makes all the difference on long heavy walks.

Maybe more weatherised
