A New Backpack to Talk About

This past Christmas one of my presents was a new camera bag. Now normally whenever I get something I got to talk about it right away but I didn’t want to until I had some actual time to play with it. This is the Thinktank Glass Limo. It’s named that way because it can hold everything up to a 600mmf/4 without attached body. It has lots of compartments for smaller lens and adjustable cushions for the long glass.

With all the studies lately about how increased weight on your shoulders over an extended period of time is bad for your back and shoulders, you might be asking why do I like this bag? Well as opposed to my sling bag, Airport AirStream or MP1, this one is great for outdoor use. Now I haven’t tried skiing or fishing in it yet, but I can say that hiking in it is very comfortable. What makes it so comfortable is not only the back support but also the width of the bag is only 9″ while the height is 20″, exterior, which means it rests over the center of your back without being awkward to one side or another. A piece of advice though, if you bring a tripod and mount it to one side, bring a water bottle to balance out the other side. I learned that the hard way the first time.

In the Glass Limo:
Nikon D3, 70-200VRII, 24-70 AF-S f/2.8, 14-24 f/2.8, SB-900, TC-17, Coolpix P7000, spare batteries, Lexar UDMA Digital Film, and a Gitzo Tripod
