3634_logistics_manager_two_thumbAt the PMA tradeshow Think Tanks announced a couple of cool new products. The first one, the Logistics Manager , is Think Tank’s largest bag to date.

The rolling bag is designed to hold multiple cameras and large lenses or lighting equipment and is deep enough to hold many of the popular large strobe heads vertically. For photographers traveling with large amounts of studio lighting gear this is the case for you. Of course the case comes fitted with all the usual Think Tank accessories such as TSA combination locks and enough padding and dividers to provide a nearly infinite amount of configuration combinations.

The Logistics Manager provides the answer to a question often asked by working photographers, which is, how can I transport all of my gear into the field, have quick access to it, and secure it from loss or theft, said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo president and lead designer. We took the design and engineering principles we pioneered in our line-up of award-winning rolling camera bags and applied them to this very roomy pro photographer logistics solution.

As with all think tank roller bags there is a good sized organizer pocket(pictured above) on the front of the bag for all your memory cards, business cards , pens etc. They have also included 2 new cable management bags with this case which is a nice touch to keep all your wires organized. At the rear of the bag is a cable and combination lock to keep the bag secured on location and side straps allow you to connect tripods and other accessories.
