    I'm looking for a camera waistpack, much like you see being used by alot of photographers on football fields. I'm finding plenty out there, but can't decide which it better. I'll be storing a 70-200 2.8, 50 1.8, Teleconverter and a SB600. I'm sure some of you must have used these. Any opinions or suggestions would be appreciated

    If I were going to by a waist pack system, I would purchase from Think Tank. Their Modular components are very high quality. You can buy Think Tank's products with confidence.
     
  3. I am using the Think Tank Modular system. Great set up, just make sure if you are on the edges (ie 34in etc) of the sizes go large they seem a little small.

    Just got the think tank skin set. Used it today for the first time . I like it alot.
     
  6. Another rave for the Think Tank gear. I used to use Lightware system and thought it was terrific - then I tried Think Tank.

    Never looked back. In fact, you just gave me the idea to sell my Lightware gear. I'll post it up on the For Sale forum.

    By the way - if you want a dedicated waist bag that you can still attach other "bags" and stuff to to hold your gear, you can begin with this and add whatever else you might need.

    I'm looking at the Thinktank Speed demon and also a Lowepro Inverse 200 AW. I have a Lowepro backpack and consider it to be made very well.
     
  9. Alan - double check to see that the TT Speed Demon will hold the 70-200. I seem to recall that it will not which is why I recommended the Speak Freak.
