    Airport Security™ V2.0

    Sports photography equipment is heavy, so a roller is essential for transportation to an event where you can take gear out and work freely. Compatible with U.S. domestic carry on requirements, the larger-sized Airport Security is easier to organize, offering more flexibility. The Airport Security holds large telephoto lenses up to a 600mm f/4. Alternatively, the bag fits two large lens setups, such as a 400mm f/2.8 and a 300mm f/2.8, plus two professional-sized DSLR bodies, a 70-200mm f/2.8, and all other lenses and accessories. The bottom is even shaped to accommodate very large hoods. For the majority of sports photographers, rollers are THE preferred solution.

    Sized for one large telephoto lens, such as a 400mm f/2.8, plus two gripped bodies, a 70-200mm f/2.8, a wide angle and a 24-70mm f/2.8. If you can get all of you gear into this roller, it’s the preferred solution because it meets international and domestic carry on standards.

For the majority of sports photographers, rollers are THE preferred solution.

    Shape Shifter® 17 V2.0

    The Shape Shifter carries a huge amount of gear in a very small, compact package, making it significantly easier to travel on airplanes, buses and subways. The backpack works especially well for sports photography if your maximum size lens is a 70-200mm f/2.8. Photographers often pair the Shape Shifter with our Glass Taxi, splitting the carry on weight into two pieces. This strategy helps avoid an overloaded roller yet complies with the two-piece carry on restriction.

    Glass Taxi™

    The Glass Taxi fits up to a 500mm f/4 with the hood reversed, but looks very small in comparison to its contents. People can't imagine such a large lens in this bag, which is why sports photographers often pair it with our Shape Shifter. You can also expand the capacity by attaching modular pouches to the front panel.

    Airport Accelerator™

    When traveling through an airport, there’s an advantage to having the smallest, lightest luggage possible. A backpack appears to be lighter than a roller, so some photographers prefer the Airport Accelerator — especially if they’re concerned about the check-in weight at various airlines. The backpack will hold a 600mm f/4 with hood reversed, two gripped bodies, a 70-200mm and accessories. And of course, if you’re planning to shoot on terrain where you can’t roll a roller, this backpack is an ideal solution.

    Hydrophobia® 300–600 V2.0

    When shooting a sports event, you don’t always have the option to get out of the rain. If you need to shoot in wet weather, you can protect your investment with the Think Tank Hydrophobia. Our all-weather camera cover enables you to shoot both horizontal and vertical, or even change the telecoverter while your camera is protected inside the Hydrophobia. You can also put the cover on while the camera is mounted on a monopod. Our 300-600 version allows you to mount the cover on the lens hood so it’s ready in case of rain.

    Modular™ Component Set V2.0

    Think Tank modular pouches are lightly padded with foam and designed to rotate on our speedbelts. They are usually used to hold an extra lens or necessary accessories during the event. A typical sports setup positions the SlimChanger on front of your body, providing convenient access to a teleconverter, memory cards, wallet, other small accessories. A separate lens pouch holds your 70-200mm with room for one other lens case if necessary. Our belt rotation system enables you to push the pieces to the back of your body when kneeling down, then pull them forward to access your gear. When using a modular setup, sports photographers typically carry one or two cameras on each shoulder so they don’t need another bag. We call this an “active shooting solution.” Be sure to always carry an extra lens pouch so that you can change lenses without juggling.

    Modular Skin™ Set V2.0

    While functionally similar to our modular series, the Skin Set components have no foam protection. This is because most sports photographers are not worried about dropping or damaging their lenses. Their main focus is on taking pictures and rapid access to their gear. Many photographers don’t want the bulk of the padded case, so when you take the lens out, the bag lays flat on the side of your body. Skin Set components also feature a flap that folds naturally over the top, which includes a hook-and-loop fastener with sound-silencing feature.
