Think Tank just released it’s third generation of their Airport International Rolling Case. There’s a brand new reinforced telescoping handle, a dedicated padded pocket for both a laptop and tablet which is lockable with a coated cable and lock which can also secure your bag to an immovable object, and user-replaceable parts. It’s outer dimensions of 14” x 21” x 8” complies with most international and domestic airlines.
I’m able to fit two full camera systems, Sony A7r II and Olympus Pen F, a camcorder, 2 microphones, a sound recorder and filters. There’s so much room in the main compartment, lots of dividers to customize the space to fit your gear.
The interior lid has 4 zippered pockets to store memory cards, batteries, filters and other miscellaneous accessories.
The laptop compartment also has a separate tablet pocket, plus several small pockets and a zippered compartment to fit small accessories.
The top of the bag has a business card holder as well as a zippered pocket for small items, plus a nice handle and the retractable handle.
There’s a badge with a serial number for Lost & Found registration with a phone number for Think Tank to help return the bag to the owner.
The tripod mount on the side with a pocket will hold even large tripods, or a water bottle.
High-performance, 80mm wheels with sealed ABEC grade 5 bearings provide quiet rolling and are user replaceable as well as the wheel housings, feet, kick plate and extendable handle.
The new Airport International is a great bag when you need to travel with a lot of gear. The upgrades are just what the Airport series needed, a stronger handle, user replaceable parts, and extra pockets. The only problem, I’ll be leaving the Airport International Version 2 at home now, it won’t see much use unless I need to bring an extra large amount of gear.
