I’ve just gotten word that Think Tank Photo has just announced updated versions of their camera roller bags. The Airport Security V3 and Airport International V3 are large-capacity bags designed to fit into most standard aircraft overhead bins.
The new designs feature improved handles, greater durability, and dedicated laptop and tablet compartments. The Airport International V3.0, sized for international carry on requirements, holds two gripped DSLRs with lenses attached, plus two to four additional lenses, a 15” laptop, and a 10” tablet. The roller fits up to a 500mm f/4 detached or 400mm f/2.8 attached (hood reversed). The Airport Security V3.0, sized for US domestic carry on requirements, holds two gripped DSLRs with lenses attached plus four to six additional lenses, a 17” laptop, and a 10” tablet. The bag fits up to a 600mm f/4 detached or 500mm f/4 attached (hood reversed). With my partnership with Think Tank, you’ll receive free gear and free shipping with every order you place for their gear, as long as you start your shopping experience here.
I have the earlier versions of both of these bags. I find them incredibly useful when I’m traveling with heavier telephotos on cross-country flights. While both bags will fit into the overhead bins of regular-sized jets, choose the International version if you do not normally travel domestic airlines within the USA. If you frequently find yourself on regional jets, consider the smaller Airport Essentials backpack.
