Think Tank Airport Commuter

The Airport Commuter Backpack from Think Tank is larger than Think Tank's Airport Essentials Backpack and is sized to hold a pro size DSLR, 4-6 standard zooms, your iPad and 15" laptop. The extra space this bag provides allows you to take along your 400mm f/2.8 attached to the camera body or your 500mm f/4 unattached. Your gear is nested within the supplied padded dividers in any configuration you choose while your computers are tucked safely away in their own separate, zippered lockable compartment.

As part of Think Tank's Airport series, the Airport Commuter makes your traveling life easy and comfortable. There are carry handles on three sides and the adjustable harness comes with beefed up lumbar support and Air Mesh paneling to keep your back cool while on the march. For sheer convenience, the adjustable shoulder straps even have elastic pockets for your iPhone or business cards. The waist belt is removable and can accept Think Tank's optional Pro Speed Belt or Thin Skin Belt that will make portability more comfortable as well as increase your load capacity. Inside, the main flap has see-through laminated mesh pockets for storing everything from memory cards to snacks.

The Think Tank Airport Commuter is the ideal carry-on backpack for the travelling photographer as you can put all your precious photography gear in one bag.

The Airport Commuter by Think Tank is the ideal carry-on backpack for the travelling photographer. Put all of your precious photography gear in one bag and fits in most overhead compartments. You can carry up to a 400mm f/2.8 lens and your 15” laptop. All the Think Tank bags are made from high-quality material and built to last.

The backpack is designed for maximum efficiency and portability and meets the needs of the pro shooter who needs a quick access pack that both travels well and is secure. The exterior is made from a combination of ballistic nylon and polyurethane for strength and water resistance while the inside is nylon with padded closed cell foam dividers. For security, the pack comes with a security cable and lock that can be tied to any solid object such as a reception hall column or fence. This allows you to remove gear knowing that the rest of the pack will remain where you leave it. The strong YKK zippers on the pack can also be locked with user-supplied locks for even more peace of mind.

With its immense capacity, ease of use and security features, the Airport Commuter is a pack to be reckoned with. For marginal weather, the pack comes with an easily deployed rain cover. The tripod mounting system places the feet in a side pocket and the head secured with an included strap. While you're on the move, use the side water bottle pocket for instant refreshment without having to stop, remove the entire pack and retrieve liquid. And, when you're at the airport, the top zippered pocket is the perfect place to store your passport.

Show Details

I originally bought this bag to allow international travel with ALL my kit, including 500mm f4 and 100-400 lenses. Laptop, chargers, accessories, 3 cameras and a variety of lenses all fitted in. The bag is extremely sturdily built and manages weights of 23kg easily; the bag has seen a lot of use and yet to show any signs of fatigue.
