Think Tank: Airport Advantage Commuter bag

One of the truths of air travel with camera gear is that the maximum amount you can carry is limited by the smallest plane on which you’re traveling. In response, we have released the Airport Advantage rolling camera bag. Designed for traveling on commuter or regional jets, the bag’s customized interior holds the maximum amount of gear that will fit in overhead bins or under seats. In addition, its ultralight design lets you pack more gear while staying under airlines’ increasingly vigilant weight restrictions.

Features include:

  • Weighs only 5.9 lbs. (2.7 kg)
  • Dedicated laptop pocket fits up to 15” laptops in a padded sleeve
  • Custom designed retractable handle with inset channel on aluminum tubing adds strength and durability
  • Tripod mount and water bottle pocket on side (Additional straps included for larger tripods)
  • YKK RC Fuse zippers and closed-cell PU foam are the highest quality materials in the industry
  • Fits two camera bodies with lenses attached
  • Lockable zipper sliders (lock not included)
  • Custom-designed, high-performance, 80 mm super quiet wheels with sealed bearings
  • Seam-sealed rain cover included
  • Grab handles on three sides for lifting bag into overhead bins
  • Business card holder on top for identification
