Think Tank Photo has added a new roller bag to their lineup, and this one has a twist. The Essentials is a convertible roller bag that has backpack straps that can be deployed in seconds when you need to cross rough ground.

Sized to meet most airline carry-on requirements, the Essentials fits two DSLR or Mirrorless bodies, a mounted 70–200mm, multiple lenses, and a 16-inch laptop. It’s Think Tank’s smallest roller bag, but it certainly doesn’t lack any of the features of the larger bags. Check it out here on the Think Tank site, and if you order through our link you’ll get a special free gift at the checkout.
