Think Tank Photo 720190 overview

  • 1Description

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
Compatibility
Holds a pro size DSLR with a 300mm f/2.8 attached; holds up to a 500mm f/4 lens
Carry-On Form Factor
FAA and airline carry-on specifications are subject to change without notice, please check with your airline before designating this case as a carry-on item.

    Think Tank Photo 720190 reviews

    Glass Taxi Backpack (Black/Gray) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Versatile Limo 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 :)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I.D. Height Spec is Wrong The interior height of this backpack is advertised to be 16.3" H. The actual dimension is under 15.75" measured generously. I am very disappointed that Think Tank Photo provided incorrect measurements. I expect more from TTP considering that camera bags are their primary business. My D500 with Nikkor 200-500 and aftermarket hood is 15.5" so it fits but very tightly. So tight that it is difficult to remove with one hand. I am keeping the Glass Taxi because there are no other solutions on the market. The Glass Limo is spec'd at 3" taller and that would be way too big. The Glass Taxi would be awesome for my rig if it were actually 16.3" in height.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, well-made, a few shortcomings I bought it because of its multiple carrying options, particularly the ability to carry it as a shoulder pack. This makes it possible to remove a camera without removing the pack first. It will hold my Nikon D750 with a 200-500 lens mounted, something few other packs will do. Appears well constructed. Would give 5 stars except for the silly little Velcro-closed pocket at the top of the flap (As others have mentioned, the closure is only partial and objects are likely to fall out when the flap is folded down. What were they thinking?.), and the side pockets which are useful for a small tripod but cannot hold a water bottle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Nikon 200-500mm I needed a bag for my D7200 with a Nikon 200-500mm lens. It's a perfect fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for 33mm f/2.8 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I recently purchased the Nikon AF-S 200-500mm F/5.6E ED VR lens and needed a new pack to get it around, along with a few other lenses and accessories. The 200-500mm is not a small lens, roughly the size of the 300mm F2.8. I've been using a Think Tank Speed Demon V2.0 for a while, and really like it, but I needed another way to get the new lens around. I wanted something smaller than a full back pack, and the Lens Taxi seemed to be about right. It ships with a wide variety of separators to divide and secure items in the interior, and I was easily able to find an arrangement for my kit. I'm able to fit a D610 with the 200-500mm lens attached, with tripod mount attached and the hood reversed, along with a 28-300mm F/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 16-35mm F/4 ED VR and some filters, spare battery and other small parts. All together I think I have about 15 lbs of kit in the bag, and it is quite comfortable to wear and hike with. It does not come with a waist band, although one can be added to it. For the light hiking I've been doing, I haven't missed it, but I think I would add one for a longer trip. So far my only complaint is that the small mesh accessory pocket doesn't zip shut (I think other reviewers commented on this as well). This is a bit of an irritation, as small parts are continually falling out. I guess I wish it also had a small external pocket like the Speed Demon. I think they sell a modular pack that can strap onto the back, so I guess this will be the alternative. The pack is quite narrow, which is convenient in terms of fitting it in smaller spaces (overhead bins, under seats, etc.), but the narrowness makes it a bit unstable - it has a tendency to roll over when the body and large lens are removed. On flat ground it isn't usually a problem, but perched on a chair or table, it might roll off the edge or let the rest of your kit fall out. I don't think I'd call this a defect, as it is an unavoidable side-effect of being as compact as it is, but definitely something to pay attention to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glass Taxi backpack 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job and then some. My primary goal was to carry a Nikon D5500 with a Nikkor 200-500mm lens attached and this bag handles them with room to spare along with a few other lenses and miscellaneous items. I do wish there were zippered pockets instead of the interior mesh pocket that is only partially closed with velcro.
