“Photographers deserve rolling camera bags that are as high in quality as their

photo gear,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s CEO and lead designer. “Take

something as simple as the wheels we use. Ours are custom-designed, high-performance,

80mm wheels with sealed ABEC grade 5 bearings for quiet rolling. If we took so much

time perfecting something as simple as wheels, one can sense how much care went into the

designs of each roller.”
