Think Tank Acceleration backpack review

 

Received my Think Tank Acceleration back pack yesterday and again I am very pleased with how Think Tank Photo makes their bags.  Below are the initial pictures taken of the bag in the format that it came in.  Will work up how to set it up for my camera set and update with new images of that.

First Impressions

Think Tank really puts a lot of thought into their bags.  I have yet to try the bag out but for what I intend to use the bag for it is near perfect.  The bag is deep and will hold a lot of lenses and accessories which can and will make it fairly heavy but for the fact that I would like to carry all my stuff in one bag for a shoot that requires a lot of walking, it will be worth it.  I have heard the belt can be removed and I may do so and use the padded belt that is with my modular kit instead so I can carry a few items on my belt as well.  Will update with more pictures and thoughts as I go.
