p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Bag for 400 2.8 IS and other gear


I know that the Kiboko 30L is gonna come up alot and this is where I am leaning. Had before and really liked it, but always felt like the Supertele side was so big that it limited the other side. Needs to hold 2 bodies, 17-50 2.8, 50-150 2.8 os, 400, 1.4x and 2x TC and flash. I can get the rest in one of the outer pockets.

Anything else I should consider outside of the Kiboko?

Hi,

Full disclaimer: I work for Think Tank Photo, but I'm not on commission and have been a FM poster/lurker well before I started working for them. I just come here for fun, as it's not part of my regular job duties.

You might check out our Airport Accelerator as it can easily hold the gear you've listed and is still sized for carry-on if you're planning on flying with the gear:

The "Features" tab has many more gear layout photos for reference too.

Its smaller brother also fits the 400 f/2.8 as well, but the second body absolutely have to be unmounted (Not sure if that's an issue or not):

Hey, we're cheaper too! That's rare. (wink)

Please let me know if you have any questions,

Randy

Thanks Randy. Looked over TT's products but nothing caught my attention. The Commuter would work but leaves no room for expansion and the Accelerator isn't comfortable to me for some reason. I ended up buying a GG 30L as I have had one before and it should do what I want now and in the future.

Thanks for the heads up though.

No problem!

I'd love hear what you didn't find comfortable about the Accelerator if you don't mind sharing. EIther way, congrats on your purchase!

Cheers,

Randy

If a shoulder bag works for you - check out Mountainsmith extra extra large. I use it for my 400 2.8 IS when I have extra gear. It has rubber bottom, so no worries when setting it down in less than perfect environments.

Pardon the poor pics:
