Carry everything you need

This ThinkTank backpack carries a standard size DSLR camera with four to six standard zoom lenses. Its pockets hold a 13-inch laptop or iPad in a separate zipped compartment, so you can carry your devices all in the one bag. With padded dividers that can be removed or moved around, you can ensure your laptop doesn’t scratch against your camera or accessories. Pack your laptop or iPad in its own padded compartment and fit small accessories like memory cards in the see-through laminated mesh pocket.

Take it on your travels

Take this backpack with your camera gear on the plane with you safely. Most airlines will take this as a standard carry on size. Functional and secure while you’re travelling, it has a security cable and lock that can be tied to a safe place when you’re out shooting and don’t want to lug the bag around with you.

On the move in comfort

Comfortable and breathable, the ThinkTank Airport Essentials backpack features a contoured harness with lumbar support for a comfortable fit. The mesh panelling lets a breeze go through to keep your back cool when carrying your load. With three sturdy handles, you’ll easily be able to grab this bag down from the overhead or shift it around in transit, without straining yourself. The harness is adjustable and you can remove the waist belt to make this bag fit you perfectly and carry it the way you want. The sternum strap helps when you’re carrying a heavy load to maintain balance while walking without putting strain on your back.

Seam-sealed rain cover

We can’t control the weather, so when it rains – and it will – you don’t want to get your gear wet. This backpack comes with a rain cover to seal away the wet weather. When it’s not raining and the weather is fine, you can easily stow the cover away inside the bag. The bag is made from nylon and polyester treated with water resistance, but having the rain cover is essential to ensure no water gets in.

Tripod and monopod mount

You’re able to attach and carry your tripod with you wherever you go, as this backpack has a tripod/monopod mount. The exterior pocket secures the tripod or monopod by the feet with the head tied back with a strap.
