Go-to bag for sports & long-lens action!"I needed a bag to fit my pro DLSR with my 70-200 & 1.4x teleconverter. After a long search, I finally came across the Glass Taxi. This bag is phenomenal. It allows me to carry only the gear I need to a sports shoot in a very small and convenient package. I'm able to place my 70-200 with hood extended so I can simply take it out and start shooting, or if I reverse the hood, I can have my 1.4x teleconverter already attached and ready to go straight out of the bag.
On the inside, there's a very nice cradle with a wide velcro strap that holds my lens in place so that it doesn't wobble or shake around while I'm walking from location to location and it even comes with straps to attach a monopod and/or tripod to the side. Although, attaching a tripod to the side makes it quite off balance, a monopod is perfect.
With this being a modular system, I've also been able to attach a Think Tank Lightning Fast case to the outside for those days when I need to have my flash with me, just in case.
This is my go to bag now for any sporting event and I couldn't ask for more."

Great For On The Move"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 donђt need it unless Iђve 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 Iђve got a lot of heavy gear packed or if Iђm 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 Iђm 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. Itђs extremely well thought out."
