One of the truths of air travel with camera gear is that the maximum amount of gear videographers can carry is limited by the smallest plane on which they’ll be traveling. In response, Think Tank Photo has released the Airport Advantage rolling camera bag, designed for travel on commuter or regional jets.
Think Tank said the bag’s customized interior holds the maximum amount of gear that will fit in overhead bins or under seats. In addition, the bag’s ultralight design lets videographers pack more gear while staying under airlines’ increasingly vigilant weight restrictions.
The new bag weighs 5.9 pounds and holds two camera bodies with lenses plus a laptop up to 15 inches. A custom designed retractable handle with inset channel on aluminum tubing adds strength and durability. Tripod mount and water bottle pockets are on the side. It has YKK RC Fuse zippers, and closed-cell PU foam.
Interior zippered pockets hold batteries, storage cards, filters and accessories. There is a user replaceable retractable handle, wheels, wheel housings and front foot. It has high-performance, 80mm super quiet wheels with sealed bearings and grab handles on three sides for lifting the bag into overhead bins.
