Think Tank Introduces Airport TakeOff 2.0 Bag

Think Tank Photo has introduced a new version of its finest backpack rolling bag — the Airport TakeOff 2.0.

Think Tank said videographers can only take a rolling bag so far. When the terrain becomes uneven, they urge their customers to convert the Airport TakeOff V2.0 to a backpack and carry the gear to the location.

Sized to meet the needs of a traveling professional, the Airport TakeOff V2.0 fits most U.S. domestic and international airline carry-on requirements. The new bag includes integrated backpack straps with comfortable shoulder harness and back panel padding.

Two large zippered compartments are for batteries, cables, filters and memory cards. A large front pocket fits up to a 17-inch laptop and a 10-inch tablet.

The bag has custom-designed, high-performance, 80mm wheels with sealed ABEC grade 5 bearings for quiet rolling. Cable and combination lock are included for securing the lockable zippers.

The bag holds two standard-sized camera bodies and an assortment of lenses. The bag weighs up to 9.7 pounds, depending on accessories. Price is $369.75.
