The original Glass Taxi was an innovative pack from Think Tank that designed for carrying 300mm and 400mm which most sports photographers use. Now Think Tank is updating the lineup with the new Glass Limo, a large pack capable of carrying a 500mm with pro body attached, or a 600mm lens on its own. It also adds rails on front and sides for attaching the huge range of modular components.
