The Think Tank Airport 4-Sight Four Wheel Roller (Black) brings an enhanced, lightweight approach to wheeled photo cases. With its ability to roll on four wheels when on smooth surfaces or two wheels when you're on carpeting, this case is designed to minimize, if not eliminate, stress and fatigue while traveling. As a result of this improved design, Airport 4-Sight homes in on the features that most photographers crave in a rolling case. It's rated to hold two standard size DSLRs with basic lenses attached or two pro sized bodies with smaller lens options. Your 300 mm f/2.8, when attached to a standard body, will fit neatly inside.
It's not only a rolling case but it's configured to roll sideways to accommodate those small hallways you inevitably come up against - or even a crowded airport or parking lot. In addition, the wheels have been placed high on the outside of the case to maximize stability and minimize shock when going up and down stairs or in the street. The three handles make it easy to lift or retrieve from a car or luggage carousel. Its two position locking tow handle gives you the option of choosing the most comfortable pulling angle.
You can also lock the case via the zipper sliders with a user-supplied TSA (Transportation Security Administration) lock. Cable management is provided with the included pouch that can store all those little adapters, cables and other small items. Interior dividers are padded and movable, so that you can configure the guts to meet your gear needs. For access to the bag, a side hinge swings open to retrieve gear. Extras include a top zippered pocket for your boarding pass, passport or other ID and a business card slot for those moments when you make a quick contact. The bottom panel has been reinforced for increased strength and the zippers are all strong YKK design. Bad weather is no problem for the Airport 4-Sight since it comes with a handy rain cover.
It's easier to roll than to carry all that gear and this case makes it even easy. As a bonus, it doesn't look like a photo case and that, in itself, gives it an additional edge over similar sized cases that cry out "photo gear inside."

Closest Thing to Perfection
Have been shooting for over 70 years (I'm 84) and have owned a large camera store. This is by far the best quality bag I have come across. I purchased a second one as a gift for my son. I had a dozen various bags at home. Now that I have Think Tank 4 Sight, I donated all the others.

Very compact and smooth rolling bag
Being a full time professional photographer I needed to consolidate two solder camera bags into one kit to cover a destination wedding. I found this domestic and international flight carry on compatible bag at Adorama. It is very compact and rollers are extremely smooth, very helpful to roll in the narrow aisles in airplane. It did not fit in overhead luggage compartment of a small 40 seater jumper plane but it did fit under the seat. My kit consists of Nikon D700 with Sigma 70-200 2.8 lens, ...View full Review
Being a full time professional photographer I needed to consolidate two solder camera bags into one kit to cover a destination wedding. I found this domestic and international flight carry on compatible bag at Adorama. It is very compact and rollers are extremely smooth, very helpful to roll in the narrow aisles in airplane. It did not fit in overhead luggage compartment of a small 40 seater jumper plane but it did fit under the seat. My kit consists of Nikon D700 with Sigma 70-200 2.8 lens, D800 with Nikon 24-70 2.8, a spare Nikon 24-120 f4 lens, two Nikon SB910 flashes. I do not use vertical grip to keep cameras light. Kit also includes a camera bracket, batteries, chargers, flash card holder, remote triggers, backup batteries etc. Even though I made most of the above fit, this bag is too tight to accommodate all of above. I ended up adding a small bag outside, making it look like part of main camera bag, to carry less essential components of my kit. Depth of bag is 5" towards handle and deepens to 6" towards bottom. There is groove shaped base or backing inside bag to accommodate telescopic handle which wastes precious space. I have not tried but positive that camera with vertical battery grip will not/or will be difficult to fit. Dividers are limited in shape and sizes, I took lots of dividers out to get most open space. There is no laptop pocket or a big zippered pouch outside. There are two small pouches outside but they are kind of useless. Over all it is a good camera bag but I have to buy something bigger to accomodate my complete kit.

Though this is a slim, easy-rolling bag, the interior padding was light, the zippers were not weather-proof (like Tenba), and the interior space was "maximized" in a way that there was unusable space! I had to put the extra pads (from customizing the interior) in the top and bottom sides of the bag. The customizable interior is also deceiving because you are limited to where the camera bodies can go. After spending almost an entire hour, I finally found a way to fit ONE Nikon D800 camera body (sideways), even though the info states this ThinkTank bag should fit 2 full-frame bodies. Though it has the ThinkTank brand name on it, this bag does NOT seem like a bag made for professionals. The size and limitations and light protection makes this bag better for a casual photographer. Since I am purchasing this as my second roller bag, I don't plan to use it often, and I got it on sale. Thus, I will be keeping it. However, I do NOT recommend this to Pros; only to amateur photographers who have crop sensor cameras.
My camera gear is like my 4th baby. I want to protect them and carry them around carefully. I have a Tenba Shoot-out, which is a rolling bag that can convert into a backpack. I love that bag for its durability and weatherproof abilities, but it always flips when roll it. After a few years of dealing with this, I decided to go with a bag that maneuvers better. ALAS, I FOUND IT! This Think Tank Airport bag is awesome. It rolls any which way you push or pull it and doesn't flip! It's pretty amazeballs. The only things to note: it's not that large (great for airports and planes though), so if you have a lot of gear, get a different model. Or, if you plan to take your bag to dusty, damp or wet places, this bag is not weatherproof. I love it.
I was able to obtain this case on Black Friday, so the deal I got was fantastic. When I got the it in the mail, I didn't expect it to be as good as it is, even though think tank has a great reputation. This bag does everything I need it to and is built like a tank. My equipment is kept safe and secure and because it is a roller, it relieves so much strain off my shoulders and back from carrying my usual camera back packs. I am very satisfied with this purchase & the service I got from Adorama.
This is now my primary camera bag. Plenty of room and unlimited ways to reconfigure the dividers.
This roller is certainly up to Think Tank Photo quality. It is compact but still holds a lot of equipment. D700 with grip, D300 w/o grip, 16-35/4, 24-70/2.6, 70-200/2.8, 70-300/4.5-5.6, 85/1.8, SB800, SB900, extra batteries, small light meter, extra batteries. The middle of the bag is not as deep as the outside to make room for the handle, so if you had two pro bodies, it may not hold as much as lens a the 6" length have to be on the outside to fit for optimal fit. I wish it had a few more outside pocket like their other rollers for more accessories and a pocket for computer (or I would put in a collapsible reflector. The cover has a couple of pockets for filters, gels and etc. Need to fill pockets with relatively thin items. They say you can't put a bag on the handle (or it will fall over) however you can still put on to pull. Lets be honest, I got this bag for $100 after rebates and Adorama special discount price. At that price it is a steal.
This is a good roller as one would expect. It is along the same level of quality as my LowePro Pro Roller Attache X50 (with the LowePro being slightly heavier duty). The Think Tank has the very cool 4 rollers which would work best for narrow airline aisles but doesn't lend itself as well to placing a second bag on top (since it will tip over due to the 4 roller configuration). The LowePro is lower profile and works better with the second bag on top and has an "oven door" type of open and close compartment (from the front). The Think Tank has the more common "lay back and open the main compartment" to get access to your gear. I actually prefer the LowePro access since I don't have to lay the bag on it's back to access my gear. They both work great, just different styles. For air travel and photo gear, the Think Tank 4-Sight Four Wheel Roller will not disappoint!
Very well constructed and holds my equipement very snug.
This is a very nice bag for traveling because it can roll just like luggages. Provides many adjustable compartments and can fit as many as 4 lenses in addition to a DSLR, maybe two if you have less number of lenses. As much as I like this bag, I returned mine because it does not fit all my gears and Manfrotto travel tripod.
Fits all my lens and two bodies. Will like wheeling it around instead of carrying a heavy camera bag
Taking cameara equipment on airplane, rolls easily, fits in small places.
