I’ve also reviewed the huge Think Tank Photo Logistics Manager, but this bag is a little different from what I’ve reviewed so far. For starters, the Airport TakeOff is the only bag with a front buckle pocket which has the advantage to securely storing a nice size laptop (My 17” MacBook Pro fit). It’s also got a nicely designed integrated backpack harness when you want to go from being on wheels to being more mobile (great for locations with rough ground, steps, etc…).
This bag has the typical great handles and build quality of its siblings. It’s also got loads of extras dividers, the tripod mount, and a combo tether. It easily held the following Canon gear during my demo video below:
- 580EX II x 2
- 600EX-RT (review) x 2
- 8-15mm (review)
- 100mm Macro (review)
- 5D Mark III
- 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM (review)
- Hoodman Loupe
- Rocket Blower
- Fujifilm X-Pro1 and 35mm lens
- CP-E4 Compact Battery Pack
It holds everything very well and has the dividers to do as many combinations as most would ever want.
Since this bag can’t easily hold a 5D Mark III with a battery grip or a 1D Mark IV – both with lenses attached, I’d rather go with the Think Tank Photo Airport Security v2.0 for my needs. If you don’t have those requirements, then you’ll find this is a great bag that will serve you well. You can also overcome the handle hump a bit by putting taller items along the outer edges (including your cameras), but I don’t care for that configuration.
