The new Airport Advantage Plus rolling camera bag maximizes camera gear for international flights and allows you to carry your gear with you all the time.

With airlines imposing more restrictions on the weight carried by passengers, photographers and videographers moving around the world have a hard time deciding what to carry with them on assignment. That’s where the new Airport Advantage Plus rolling camera bag, from Think Tank Photo, comes in. Designed for traveling professionals, the bad complies with carry-on requirements,  allowing those professionals to keep their most valuable gear safe and near them when they fly.

The new 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.”
