Think Tank has announced the imminent release of a 4 wheeled roller bag called the Airport 4-Sight. Designed for pro photographers, the bag’s weight has been significantly reduced, whilst the company claims that the 4 wheels make moving the bag around easier. The 4-Sight also meets international airline carry-on standards and the bag can be turned so that it will wheel down confined spaces like airplane aisles.
The Think Tank 4-sight will be available from May 2012, at a retail price of $299.75.
Think Tank Photo to Release Airport 4-Sight Four-Wheel Rolling Camera Bag.
Santa Rosa, Calif. – Think Tank Photo announces that in May it will release its first four-wheeled rolling camera bag, the Airport 4-Sight™. The Airport 4-Sight meets international airline carry-on standards. The roller’s weight has been reduced dramatically through innovative design and by a strict focus on the features that photographers find most beneficial.
With professional photography gear not getting any lighter, Think Tank set out to design a more ergonomic roller to reduce fatigue and strain on traveling photographers. Walking a four-wheeler alongside one’s self is easier than pulling it behind or carrying it over a shoulder. Putting the bags weight on four-wheels eliminates arm strain and makes rolling effortless.
Four-wheelers are superior on many smooth surfaces. On thick carpet, the Airport 4-Sight leans over to perform as a traditional two-wheel roller. It has the added benefit of rolling sideways on two wheels to easily navigate tight spaces, such as airline aisles.
