Airport Series backpacks camera bags - Think Tank Photo 02:18

The Airport series of backpacks camera bags have an ultra efficient design that maximize space for your camera gear and still meet airline carry-on requirements. When you're getting on a plane you want to be sure that your bag will fly with you, that's why we design and test our bags for the traveling photographer. Their light, adjustable, contoured harness provides comfort along with lumbar support. The air mesh paneling keeps backs cool. The height-adjustable sternum strap allows for the perfect fit. A removable waist belt, side water bottle pocket, tripod/ monopod mounting system and seam sealed rain cover extend their versatility. The two smaller bags, the Airport Commuter and the Airport Essentials, are designed to fit under-seat in regional commuter planes.
