Safely transport your valuable equipment whether your job takes you across town, the continent, or an ocean with the Think Tank Photo Essentials Convertible Rolling Backpack.

Inspired by the ubiquitous carry-on style rolling luggage but designed with convenience in mind, you can carry the bag four ways: by one of the three carrying handles arrayed around the sides, pull it behind you on the two wheels by the extendable handle, or wear it with the backpack straps that stow in the bag when not in use. The bag's versatility extends to organization and included are a large padded interior with a set of adjustable and removable dividers, internal mesh pockets, external gear pockets, a 16" padded laptop pocket, and straps for a tripod or monopod. A small side pocket holds a security cable attached to a combination lock so you can lock the zippers to the main compartment or attach the cable to a pole or chair and protect your bag against grab-and-run theft. Also included with the bag is a waterproof rain fly.

This bag is useful for professionals of all kinds including photographers and videographers, audio and sound engineers, and even drone pilots.

Think Tank Photo Essentials Convertible Reviews

Just the size I was looking fo

By Jennifer

This bag is the perfect size for my travel equipment. I do also have the larger roller bag that I've used for airplane travel but it was just a tad bigger than what I typically needed for my photo gear. I'd end up packing clothing along with my camera gear but the spacing really wasn't ideal. The protective construction of the bag obviously makes it better for camera gear but not necessary (takes up too much space) for clothing.

Asked by: Kenneth
Average carry on domestic is 22 x 14 x9 inches at the most. The Think Tank Photo Essentials Convertible Rolling Backpack is smaller. But that is for over head size. Under a seat varies and you need to check with the specific airline on that.
