The black Airport Accelerator Backpack from Think Tank is an immense pack designed for the serious pro that needs to carry an entire camera system. This huge pack will accommodate two pro DSLRs as well as 6-8 additional basic zooms including your 500mm f/4 attached to a body or an unattached 600mm f/4 without hood. Larger than Think Tank's Airport Commuter, this pack contains the same features but on a larger scale. Your 17" laptop and iPad are held in their own separate, zipper lockable compartment.

Overall, the pack 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 Airport Accelerator 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.

As part of Think Tank's Airport series, the Airport Accelerator 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.

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.

The Airport Accelerator may not look like a traditional photo backpack but it holds as much, if not more, than most of them. With its immense capacity, ease of use and security features, the Airport Accelerator is a pack built for the traveling pro. It's backed by Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

Does not look like a traditional camera backpack. Included security cable and combination lock allows you to lock the laptop case or to immovable objects. This security cable is very effective when you have to leave your gear for a period of time in a media room, wedding hall, hotel room, or other open area
Contoured adjustable harness with lumbar support and Air Mesh paneling to help keep your back cool
Robust handles on three sides ensures rapid and easy retrieval from overhead bins, car trunks
Seam sealed rain cover helps protect your gear. Stows away inside backpack when not in use

The inside flap has see-through laminated mesh pockets for various accessories such as note pads, energy bars, memory card wallets, instruction books, and other items

      I bought this bag specifically for a Canon 5D and the new 500mm f/4 II lens. They do fit, but it's snug. I turn the camera vertical (hand grip up) and that provides a little more length since the camera handle isn't pushed against the top outside corner of the bag. In the B&H photo they show the lens installed without the lens cap - I can't imagine anyone doing this and the lens cap does add a little more length to the whole assembly. Lastly, you have to move the long divider over half an inch when putting the large 500mm lens in. This is easy to do, except the dividers on the other half are all scrunched, as you can see in the B&H photo. I disassembled one end of 3 of the dividers, cut half an inch off the foam insert and the cloth, then reattached the velcro on the end. This re-engineering took an entire day for 3 dividers and a very sturdy needle and thread, but since I only intend to use this bag with my 500mm, it's exactly what I want.

      The bag comes with plenty of dividers and is well constructed. One problem I had was with the combination lock. Mine did not arrive with the combination set to 000. I had to run through all combinations and eventually discovered the combination was 430, so now I can reset it to what I want. The zippers have slots for additional TSA-approved locks if you're traveling.

      The size of this bag is perfect for traveling on planes. Sometimes if you have the maximum allowable size for US planes they will make you check your bag if you are one of the later boarders. This bag is small enough that when they've been forcing people to check their carry-on, they let me take this size bag on as carry-on.

      The bag is nice and deep. Some big lenses can be stored standing up and you might benefit from flat dividers to stack gear on top of other gear to take advantage of the depth.

      My primary goal in purchasing the bag was to be able to carry two bodies with lenses mounted and, of course, carry everything else as well. Changing lenses in less than ideal environments (rain forests, small moving boats, deserts; you get the point) is something I hate doing. Many bags allow you to carry an extra body but not the ability to have the lens mounted on the second body. The only other bag that is designed to carry two bodies with lenses mounted is one of the Gura Gear bags. I don't buy into the non-removable central divider Gura Gear bags have (a waste of space and a reduced number of potential configurations) and their new designs have no room for a laptop or tablet. With that in mind I opted for the ThinkTank Airport Accelerator.
      1. Looks: potentially the least important item on the list. This is not a pretty looking bag, looks like an old fashioned suitcase with backpack straps.
      2. Carry on option- very wide (depth wise). Fully loaded it will never be allowed on a regional jet (and these are so common nowadays) and is likely to be an issue even with larger aircrafts.
      3. Quality: seems to be outstanding. Good stitching, YKK zippers, and very good attention to details
      4. Comfort- surprisingly, for a bag that is not a true outdoor backpack , it is very comfortable with tons of heavy gear in it and can be carried around fully loaded for a long while.
      5. Padding- in comparison to my Kata bags the periphery padding of the ThinkTank is far from being impressive but its ok in comparison to my Lowepro bag.
      6. Padded dividers: not really a separate item but I had to mention it since ThinkTank is extremely generous with the number of dividers provided.
      7. Laptop and tablet pockets- yes, this bag allows you to carry both in a well thought out manner. Well done!
      8. Internal pockets and dividers- plenty of those, they are laid out very well.
      9. Internal design- here comes the first fatal flaw. The bag has a special rigid divider that holds the two bodies with lenses. It connects to another rigid divider making it the sole configuration for two bodies with lenses mounted. This special divider which is designed to hold the bodies and the lens at the lens-body connection was way too tight. It required so much force to remove the cameras out of the bag that I was concerned about damaging both the lens mount on the body and the lens itself.
      10. External design- second fatal flaw. You cannot really carry a full size tripod (remember, this is a full size bag). A tripod can be carried only on the side of the bag not the center. It should have been easy to add a detachable tripod pouch that fits in the center. If you use the tripod pouch on the side there is no room for a water bottle.
      Bottom line:
      If this is just for transporting gear from one location to another, it is a reasonable option since the quality seems to be very good.
      If you plan on taking it on board, I will be surprised if you will be routinely allowed to have it as a carry on .This is guaranteed to be a hit and miss; the misses may be painful and expensive because this bag is not padded enough for a checked in baggage.
      The two bodies with mounted lenses option that is well illustrated and appears appealing in the product info is not a winner.If you carry your bodies without lenses mounted, then the bag will work just fine
      This may work for local transport, potentially airports, and will not work for an outdoors person, bag sent back to B&H.
      I will stick to my beloved, reliable, and great looking Kata Pro-Light Bug-203 PL. It's (optional ) very heavily padded waist belt is removable and so are the (optional) additional side pockets, and the tripod carrying pouch. Take these off and put them in your checked in baggage and you have no worries about bringing the bag on board. Attach the aforementioned belt, pockets, and pouch and your days in the great outdoors are pleasant and worry free.

      Comments about Think Tank Photo Airport Accelerator Backpack (Black):

      This backpack has enough room to store two full frame DSLRs with zooms mounted, and still have space for smaller lenses, speedlights, and whatnot. I'd say it's too big to take on a hike, but great for moving lots of (all your?) gear from place to place. This was my first thinkTANK bag. I was initially apprehensive about the price, but I'm glad I bit the bullet. I'm very impressed by the quality. Seems well built, and is quite configurable.

            I am using it for a Sony FS700. It isn't designed for camcorders, but it seems to work very well. The customizability is a big plus. The bag is extremely sturdy and very comfortable to carry, with lots of topics.

                Comments about Think Tank Photo Airport Accelerator Backpack (Black):

                I've hauled an incredible amount of gear all over the world safely in this case. It has fit ok on every puddle jumper small aircraft, although it is a tight fight in the smallest of regional plane overheads.

                The inserts are customizable a million different ways, for lens large and small, filters, chargers, flashes, etc., etc., etc.

                Everything is well protected. The inserts are padded, and there are more of them than needed, so you can even double up on the edges of the case for extra protection.

                The backpack straps can hide in the back when not in use, and are very handy in airports or other transport.

                The only downside is not a downside. The holder under for a DSLR camera with lens attached is sized for a pro camera like a D4 that has the huge button grip, or an extra grip on a D800. With a D800 normal size DSLR The bottom of the camera will not touch the bottom of the case. Solution, simply use one of the inserts on the bottom of the bag to support the camera.

                Other "problem" is that full this will hold 35 or 40 pounds of gear. The bag can take it, but I usually haul an empty "normal" camera bag in my checked baggage to use on day trips when traveling. It is not a bag you want to carry around town fully loaded, unless you are very strong person.

                Also I do not find the laptop holder useful. It is too thin to protect the laptop, and it will slide out if the top of the bag is tilted. But it is a great place to slip travel docs or magazines.

                Finally, it has a handy zipper pouch on top that's a perfect fit for a passport.

                I love this case. It is my favorite piece of non-camera camera gear.

                  I needed a new backpack to fit my tall frame (6-9) and after looking decided to give the Accelerator a try and am very glad I did. I have 2-Thinktank rollers which work well and now have a near perfect backpack. It fits just fine however the "near-perfect" part is that the pack is not soft so be prepared for that. It does fit and confirm to my back and with it loaded it feels good both on my shoulders and waist.

                  The first thing I did was remove the skimpy waist connector and replace it with the Thinktank belt which works great.

                  Just about the same size as my rollers and looks just about the same only difference is no wheels or expandable handle but had shoulder straps.

                  Great backpack and am looking forward to using it in hiking the southwest as well as Jackson Hole WY.

                  If you're taller than average and need a backpack take a good look at Think Tank.

                    This is a great backpack. It is certainly big and can carry lot's of stuff. In fact it is easy to overpack.

                    I have flown with it in the US and into Canada with no issues using it as a carry on.

                    A large percent of my shooting is out on mountain bike trails so I typical am on a bike with it. Even filled up and weighed down it seems to sit better on my back than some of the other packs I have used (lowepro, tamrac, f-stop.)

                    My gear stays in place and it's easy to adjust. The pockets make sense and gear is easy to find.

                    I did lose the waist strap rather quickly, but was planning on replacing it with something a little more beefy anyway.

                        Very happy with this backpack. Bought it for a new job out of state in which i flew to. After reading one review about it possibly not fitting in a crj jet i was concerned but it fit under the seat of a crj200. It wont go overhead but is fine on regular commercial jets. Holds most of what i need such as two pro bodies with attached lenses plus extra lens , three flashes and 5 pocketwizards. Plus all the accessories. I am happy with it. The only caution i have is that the three internal pockets that hold filters etc may hold too much once the laptop is added in its pocket. This may just make it tight under a airplane seat. May need to remove laptop in this case.

                        Comments about Think Tank Photo Airport Accelerator Backpack (Black):

                        I bought this bag specifically for a Canon 5D and the new 500mm f/4 II lens. They do fit, but it's snug. I turn the camera vertical (hand grip up) and that provides a little more length since the camera handle isn't pushed against the top outside corner of the bag. In the B&H photo they show the lens installed without the lens cap - I can't imagine anyone doing this and the lens cap does add a little more length to the whole assembly. Lastly, you have to move the long divider over half an inch when putting the large 500mm lens in. This is easy to do, except the dividers on the other half are all scrunched, as you can see in the B&H photo. I disassembled one end of 3 of the dividers, cut half an inch off the foam insert and the cloth, then reattached the velcro on the end. This re-engineering took an entire day for 3 dividers and a very sturdy needle and thread, but since I only intend to use this bag with my 500mm, it's exactly what I want.

                        The bag comes with plenty of dividers and is well constructed. One problem I had was with the combination lock. Mine did not arrive with the combination set to 000. I had to run through all combinations and eventually discovered the combination was 430, so now I can reset it to what I want. The zippers have slots for additional TSA-approved locks if you're traveling.

                        The size of this bag is perfect for traveling on planes. Sometimes if you have the maximum allowable size for US planes they will make you check your bag if you are one of the later boarders. This bag is small enough that when they've been forcing people to check their carry-on, they let me take this size bag on as carry-on.

                        The bag is nice and deep. Some big lenses can be stored standing up and you might benefit from flat dividers to stack gear on top of other gear to take advantage of the depth.

                          This is basically the same bag as the Airport Security, but in backpack form and without wheels...and also less expensive. But it's still a wonderful bag that has a TON of room and is very customizable. Pretty much all my gear fits in here with room to spare.

                            My primary goal in purchasing the bag was to be able to carry two bodies with lenses mounted and, of course, carry everything else as well. Changing lenses in less than ideal environments (rain forests, small moving boats, deserts; you get the point) is something I hate doing. Many bags allow you to carry an extra body but not the ability to have the lens mounted on the second body. The only other bag that is designed to carry two bodies with lenses mounted is one of the Gura Gear bags. I don't buy into the non-removable central divider Gura Gear bags have (a waste of space and a reduced number of potential configurations) and their new designs have no room for a laptop or tablet. With that in mind I opted for the ThinkTank Airport Accelerator.
                            1. Looks: potentially the least important item on the list. This is not a pretty looking bag, looks like an old fashioned suitcase with backpack straps.
                            2. Carry on option- very wide (depth wise). Fully loaded it will never be allowed on a regional jet (and these are so common nowadays) and is likely to be an issue even with larger aircrafts.
                            3. Quality: seems to be outstanding. Good stitching, YKK zippers, and very good attention to details
                            4. Comfort- surprisingly, for a bag that is not a true outdoor backpack , it is very comfortable with tons of heavy gear in it and can be carried around fully loaded for a long while.
                            5. Padding- in comparison to my Kata bags the periphery padding of the ThinkTank is far from being impressive but its ok in comparison to my Lowepro bag.
                            6. Padded dividers: not really a separate item but I had to mention it since ThinkTank is extremely generous with the number of dividers provided.
                            7. Laptop and tablet pockets- yes, this bag allows you to carry both in a well thought out manner. Well done!
                            8. Internal pockets and dividers- plenty of those, they are laid out very well.
                            9. Internal design- here comes the first fatal flaw. The bag has a special rigid divider that holds the two bodies with lenses. It connects to another rigid divider making it the sole configuration for two bodies with lenses mounted. This special divider which is designed to hold the bodies and the lens at the lens-body connection was way too tight. It required so much force to remove the cameras out of the bag that I was concerned about damaging both the lens mount on the body and the lens itself.
                            10. External design- second fatal flaw. You cannot really carry a full size tripod (remember, this is a full size bag). A tripod can be carried only on the side of the bag not the center. It should have been easy to add a detachable tripod pouch that fits in the center. If you use the tripod pouch on the side there is no room for a water bottle.
                            Bottom line:
                            If this is just for transporting gear from one location to another, it is a reasonable option since the quality seems to be very good.
                            If you plan on taking it on board, I will be surprised if you will be routinely allowed to have it as a carry on .This is guaranteed to be a hit and miss; the misses may be painful and expensive because this bag is not padded enough for a checked in baggage.
                            The two bodies with mounted lenses option that is well illustrated and appears appealing in the product info is not a winner.If you carry your bodies without lenses mounted, then the bag will work just fine
                            This may work for local transport, potentially airports, and will not work for an outdoors person, bag sent back to B&H.
                            I will stick to my beloved, reliable, and great looking Kata Pro-Light Bug-203 PL. It's (optional ) very heavily padded waist belt is removable and so are the (optional) additional side pockets, and the tripod carrying pouch. Take these off and put them in your checked in baggage and you have no worries about bringing the bag on board. Attach the aforementioned belt, pockets, and pouch and your days in the great outdoors are pleasant and worry free.

                              This is a really great bag. I had a LowePro roller bag before this and I gotta admit that the space in this Think Tank bag blew me away.

                              I am able to fit 3 more lenses in this bag than my previous bag. The sections inside are easily adjustable and very flexible to work with. Having an iPad pocket above the Laptop pocket which fits my new HP "17 laptop is just pure genius.

                              When I carry it around with both straps on my back it's very comfortable to walk with even with full gear inside. Seeing as I haven't owned another Backpack since 2009, this was really a big step for me but a step I'm glad I took.

                                Great bag. Think Tank products are always good. I have a Streetwalker HD but I found it to be too narrow to comfortably fit everything I wanted to. The quality of the Accelerator is top notch. Lots of room for everything I want, including the "Hebrew Trinity", 2 speedlites, and a bunch of light modifiers. I like this bag.
