The black/gray Glass Taxi Backpack from Think Tank is one of those "wow" bags that doesn't come along often. Here's a bag that's not only designed to be used as either a backpack or shoulder bag but that will accommodate your pro DSLR with a 300mm f/2.8 attached. Or, if you prefer, it will hold the camera with a 500mm f/4 lens. On a daily basis, it will hold your DSLR with one lens attached (like a 70-200mm f/2.8) and three additional lenses.

This kind of convertible pack delivers dual functions and saves you the trouble of having to buy two separate bags. The tuck-away backpack shoulder straps permit you to just use the Modular Component Strap for traditional shoulder use. This Curved Comfort Shoulder Strap is well-named. The shoulder straps can be hidden by simply disconnecting the D-Rings. Inside the pack, there's a foam ring at the bottom that is not only used to cushion your rig but will hold the lens in place. There's also a foam collar that secures the back end of the lens providing even more internal stability. The pack is also capable of holding a monopod in either of its side stretch pockets. However, if you prefer to carry a traditional tripod, side straps are provided.

The Glass Taxi accepts Think Tank's optional Pro Speed Belt or Thin Skin Belt that permits you to attach even more components to the pack. In support of that, there's a front rail that will hold modular attachments such as Think Tank's Chimp Cage for holding an additional DSLR body.

A top grab handle is for quick grab moments and contains a clear business card holder underneath it. This will eliminate the need to open the entire bag to hand out your card. An inside mesh pocket is used for small accessories like lens caps, cleaning cloths or Think Tank's Pixel Pocket Rocket that will hold ten CF cards or more business cards. Finally, for complete protection, Think Tank includes a rain cover for the entire pack. This pack is backed by Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

Holds a 500mm f/4 lens (compare your lens size with the bag's internal dimensions). The zipper sliders are "self locking" to prevent the front flap from opening accidentally, as well as a mesh pocket on the inside flap
Holds a pro-size DSLR, with a 70-200mm f/2.8 attached and lens hood in position, as well as providing additional room for three other lenses
The Glass Taxi can also hold some lenses like a 300mm f/2.8 with a pro-size SLR attached. It is best to use both the Foam Collar and the Foam Ring to secure it in position; this extra foam pad, which is removable, securely positions the lens in the bottom of the bag
The removable foam collar attaches via hook and loop to the back of the case. This secures a large lens in the case, preventing it from wobbling back and forth
The optional Pro Speed Belt or Thin Skin Belt can be attached to the Glass Taxi by putting it under the hook and loop flap on the bottom of the bag. Modular components can be attached to the belt during use
The Pro Speed Belt can be removed without taking off the backpack or the belt. Remove the backpack by disconnecting the hook and loop flap and pulling the backpack upwards, keeping the belt and Modular components fully assembled
Front rail holds Modular components. The rail on the front side of the Glass Taxi allows attachment of Modular components such as the Chimp Cage that holds a DSLR (without lens attached) or other items
Stretch pockets on both sides allow for items such as a monopod to be attached to the side of the bag. Straps are included to hold the monopod in place; a medium size tripod can also be carried on the Glass Taxi
Tuck away the shoulder straps as needed. Disconnect the shoulder straps from the lower D- rings and tuck them behind the back pad. This is useful when using the Glass Taxi as a shoulder bag
A seam-sealed rain cover is included; a pop-out section goes over a Modular component when one is attached to the front rail
A clear business card holder is located under the padded handle for easy identification. It can also be used to carry extra business cards
The inside mesh pocket can be used for small accessories, such as a Pixel Pocket Rocket, lens caps or lens cloth
The Glass Taxi has mid-weight shoulder straps to carry it as a backpack. While wearing the backpack, its small profile disguises its function as a photo backpack

        I have other Think Tank products and am happy with all of them. I carry my Nikon 300 F4 with 1.4 tele in it. It's compact but has plenty of room for items you need with this lens.

          I bought this to carry my Canon 300mm f.2.8 II lens. Perfect bag for it. I can carry the lens by itself in bag with hood in shooting position, or with hood reversed and camera attached to bag. Can be carried as a shoulder bag or a backpack. Also has lots of dividers if you want to use it as a regular camera bag.

            Comments about Think Tank Photo Glass Taxi Backpack (Black/Gray):

            I purchase the glass taxi to fulfill a variety of tasks, including transporting a plethora of smaller lenses, as filter/flash dedicated carrier. This is a versatile limo in that ThinkTank provides lots of spare foam, and if you are using this to transport your 300F2.8 it has a safety cradle all built in.Those additional inserts are also handi, the backpack is deep enough to take many of the larger aperture lens standing up, or D4 w 70-200 F2.8G down the center.This backpack has a feature no other has, it has those additional loop on the outside to attach pouches for additional items. The strength of its versatility in design shown through.Call it a Limo :)

                  This Backpack is one of the few bags able to hold a pro-camera with a 300mm 2.8 lens attached. It makes it alot easier to prepare for outdoor sports events.

                  I wish it had alittle more room for lens and additional gear. The limosine Glss Backpack will fill those needs I am sure.

                  All in all it is a great bag.

                  Comments about Think Tank Photo Glass Taxi Backpack (Black/Gray):

                  If you are looking for a compact size backpack that can carry 70-200mm lens and a couple more standard lenses for short trips, this is the right backpack for you. There are several other backpacks specially designed for 70-200mm lens but this backpack can even carry additional lenses, and even more. The size of this backpack is almost perfect for my need (i.e., not too small or too big for short trips). The only complain I have so far is that the front cover on top side of bag is too thin and soft. So it could damage your gear easily if the backpack fall upside down by accident. Great design and good protection material on the bottom side but it could have been perfect if this backpack also has good protection on top cover area.
