Need recommendations for travel case

->> I'm going to a shoot in Chicago and need suggestions for a roller than can handle two pro bodies, a 70-200 2.8, two other, smaller lenses, batteries, flash AND two 13.3-inch laptops, all while still meeting the carry-on size requirements. Any suggestions?

->> Airport Security. After a year of wear and tear, one leg of the telescoping handle broke. It was still able to carry 4 bodies, 3 lenses, 2 flashes, chargers, batteries, cleaning kits, etc. Weight of bag with gear was 50 lbs. Ran like that for over a month before fixing.

->> + 1 for Think Thank Photo

Any thing in the line up is great. The Airport Security made my life easier and I rock the older laptop bag style. It just works.

I would recommend some how to make your bag stand out to you. At any event, a line of the same bag becomes a giant blur.

->> Just for an alternative...

I've been using a Tamrac for the past 10 years. Meets carry-on requirements. Holds 3 bodies, 15mm lens, 16-35, 24-70, 70-200, 1.4x, 2x, 3 extra batteries, 2 strobes.

I've been very happy with it.
