PRESS RELEASE: New Rolling Backpack Meets International Travel Size Requirements
Airport International holds big lenses with lens hoods
SANTA ROSA, CALIF -- For photographers, having to check their gear while flying -- especially internationally or on smaller aircraft -- puts their gear and possibly their livelihood at risk. Only Think Tank Photo's new Airport International (http://www.thinktankphoto.com/ttp_product_ArprtInl.php) rolling carry-on backpack lets photographers legally store their bodies, lenses and accessories in overhead bins or under the seats of international carriers and smaller regional commuter aircraft. For added security, it features front-pocket and main compartment combination locks and a cable from a secret rear hatch that allow it to be secured to posts, trees and other immovable objects.
Airport International accommodates 300 2.8, 400 2.8 or 500 4 with lens hoods, multiple dSLR bodies and lenses and other photography accessories. TSA approved combination locks secure the main compartment zipper sliders. To ensure easy transportation of laptops, the expandable and stretchable front pocket is designed to hold Think Tank Photo's Artificial Intelligence 15 or Artificial Intelligence 17 laptop case.
"With Airport International we've listened to photographer fears and designed in strong, customizable features that allow them to use this rolling camera bag not only as a means of transporting equipment from one site to the next, but for storing it securely during the shoot," said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo's founder and lead designer. "As it is a roller, photographers can move from quickly from one flight to the next and without the burden of carrying this weight on their shoulders."
The Airport International is the latest addition to Think Tank Photo's exclusive line of rollers, backpacks and briefcases specifically designed to aid photographers in transporting their gear safely through airports and into the field. The Airport International is also extremely useful for wedding and commercial photographers who need quick access to their gear and who are concerned about gear security while shooting remotely.
