Great For On The Move
March 22, 2016
The best features of the Think Tank Glass Taxi are super comfort, compact size and incredible flexibility. It fits my 7D Mark II with my 100-400mm L II attached (hood reversed) with room to spare, plus two other smaller zooms, a 50mm prime and my 430EX II flash and some small gear. I'm sure the 110-400mm would also fit with a teleconverter. An included cradle with velcro strap can be used to hold a lens in place is, but I find I don’t need it unless I’ve got one of the smaller zooms attached to the body. A compact tripod and/or monopod can be strapped to either side of the pack separately or at the same time, using pockets at the base of the pack (straps for both included with the pack). If you try to put a heavier tripod on one side, the weight throws the pack off balance. Other gear or Think Tank (TT) accessories can be attached to the sides or to the front of the pack as well. When I’ve got a lot of heavy gear packed or if I’m moving quickly, I use the TT Pro Speed Belt v2.0 with the pack to take some weight off the shoulders and keep it in place. I also use the belt with the pack if I’m not packing the 100-400, using a couple of TT lens pouch at the front for swapping lenses without removing the pack. Overall, this is a great compact bag for taking a moderate amount of gear for a shoot. The comfortable shoulder straps alone make this a bag of choice. I looked at a lot of bags before purchasing – glad I did. It’s extremely well thought out.
