Our take on the Think Tank Photo Airport TakeOff™

Traveling with camera equipment can be fraught with worry, but the Think Tank Photo Airport TakeOff™ will ease your mind. It's a rolling suitcase with padded inserts that allow you to configure the case for up to 2 pro DSLR bodies and several lenses or other accessories. There's even a large zippered compartment for your laptop or tablet. Best of all, once you zip the main compartment closed, you can use the included cable and lock to secure the interlocking zippers so nothing comes out without your say-so. If the terrain gets crowded or uneven, just close the retractable handle and pull out the built-in straps, and your rolling case becomes a backpack. It's an ingenious tool for a busy photographer on the go.

Features: The Airport TakeOff backpack has the following features:

  • The backpack straps are located behind a zippered panel, and simply pulled out when you're ready to wear the bag as a backpack. The straps can be easily tucked away when not in use.
