Santa Rosa, Calif. – Think Tank Photo’s new Airport Advantage Plus rolling camera bag is specifically designed for traveling photographers. By complying with international carry-on requirements, photographers can keep their most valuable gear safe and near them when they fly. The roller’s ultra-lightweight design at 6.9 lbs. (3.1 kg) helps meet weight restrictions, yet features the same level of protection for which Think Tank is known. Its dedicated laptop pocket fits up to a 17” laptop in a padded sleeve, a 10” tablet, or an Eagle Creek Medium Clothing Folder for overnight trips.
 
The Airport Advantage Pus holds one gripped DSLR with lens attached, one ungripped DSLR with lens attached, plus five to eight additional lenses, and a 17” laptop. Or, it can hold two gripped DSLRs with lenses detached, plus five to seven lenses. For Mirrorless users, the roller can fit two bodies with a crazy amount of lenses. It can hold up to a 200–400 f/4 detached (hood reversed) lens.
 
“Traveling photographers are finding it increasingly difficult to keep their most valuable and fragile gear—their bodies, lenses, and laptops—near them and safe from rough baggage handling,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s CEO and lead designer. “The new Airport Advantage Plus was designed with not only this in mind, but with the more restrictive size and weight requirements that go with international travel.”
 
KEY FEATURES
 
  • Multi-use interior for cameras and clothes
  • Custom designed retractable handle with inset channel on aluminum tubing for added strength and durability
  • Extra tall handle height keeps the bag away from feet when rolling
  • Tripod mount pocket on side (Additional straps included for larger tripods)
  • YKK RC Fuse zippers, ballistic nylon, and closed-cell PU foam are the highest quality materials in the industry
  • Lockable zipper sliders (lock not included)
  • Travel pouch included for organizing clothing or shoes
  • Interior zippered pockets for batteries, memory cards, filters and accessories
  • User-replaceable retractable handle, wheels, wheel housings, and front foot extends product life
  • Custom-designed, high-performance, 80mm wheels with sealed ABEC grade 5 bearings for quiet rolling
  • Seam-sealed rain cover included
  • Handles on three sides ensure rapid and easy retrieval from overhead bins, car trunks, etc.
  • Reinforced dividers support heavy gear and maintain strength over time
  • Business card holder on top for identification

Exterior: For superior water-resistance, all exterior fabric has a durable water-repellent (DWR) coating, plus underside of fabric has a polyurethane coating. The bag is also constructed with 420D velocity nylon, YKK RC Fuse (abrasion-resistant) zippers, custom designed extra tall skid plates, high performance 80mm super quiet wheels with sealed bearings, rubberized laminate reinforcement, and 3-ply bonded nylon thread.

Our Airport Advantage roller, which is designed to hold the maximum amount of gear that will fit in overhead bins or under seats on commuter or regional jets, was named “Best Camera Bag” by the judges of the 2017 Lucie Technical Awards. The Lucie Technical Awards honor large and small companies, as well as the individuals who have advanced the photographic industry in a given year.
 
“It is a tremendous honor for the Airport Advantage to be named a winner of this prestigious technical award,” said Think Tank Photo’s president and lead designer Doug Murdoch. “With this, our smallest rolling camera bag, we help photographers solve one of their biggest headaches, which is how to keep their very expensive gear near them at all times on regional aircraft, as opposed to it being tossed into the hold.”
