The black Airport International V 2.0 Rolling Camera Bag from Think Tank is user configurable to hold two pro DSLRs, 4 lenses (one up to 300mm f/2.8), 2 flashes and, when used with the optional Airport International Low Divider Set, a 15.4″ laptop that is held within the optional Artificial Intelligence 15 V2.0 laptop bag. If configured differently, a longer lens can be accommodated but the case will hold fewer shorter lenses. The Low Divider set is 2.0″ (5.1 cm) lower than the standard dividers included with the bag and provides space for the laptop to lay across the top of your photo gear. Or, you can put the Artificial Intelligence 15 V2.0 laptop bag inside the stretchable front pocket of the bag. For an added benefit, you can lock the laptop case to the front of the bag with the included front security cable and combination lock.
A TSA (Transportation Security Administration) combination lock secures the main compartment. For even more security, there’s a rear security cable that permits you to lock the entire bag to a heavy object such as a desk or column. In this way, you can withdraw whatever gear you need and leave the rest of the bag secured to an immovable object. The bag is provided with three grab handles – top, side and bottom. The bottom handle is cleverly situated to help you lift the bag into an on board aircraft storage bin. Think Tank has even thought to provide little ports for the zippers that cover up the metal so your gear won’t get scratched – a nice touch.
The Airport International V 2.0 Rolling Camera Bag is transported on its dual wheels that are user-replaceable with a free kit supplied by Think Tank. The retractable handle makes it easy to go up ramps or travel on the street. The wheels are situated on the very outside edge of the bag to make it more balanced and the housings are higher than normal to prevent damage when going up stairs or the abuse incurred on city curbs.
Tripods and monopods are secured to the bag using the included straps and cup that holds larger legs. Small accessories such as pens, pads and CDs are stored in the front zippered pocket along with a front stretch pocket that will hold your newspaper or collateral material. The inside of lid has an organizer for smalls stuff.
One of the “wow” features of the bag is the security ID plate that has a unique number. By registering this number with Think Tank, you stand a chance of getting the bag back should it become lost or misplaced. For anyone who travels often, you know that luggage loss can be a nightmare and the security number will help to ease your worried mind.
Business cards are stored in a pocket just below the handle and another zippered pocket in the same location is for rapid access to your passport. The incredible versatility of this bag is backed by Think Tank’s lifetime warranty against manufacturer’s defects.
