The three-sided top zippered opening has mesh pockets underneath for small accessories such as cables, batteries and cell phone. Two side pockets are provided and sized to hold your flash units or water bottles. A zippered card slot on the top of the lid is a good place to store your passport, ticket and other quick access items. The zippers on the top and front compartments are lockable with user-supplied locks.

The exterior is made from a combination of water-resistant polyurethane, nylon and polyester. The interior is polyethylene with closed-cell foam, nylon and mesh. The zippers are all YKK in design. A rain cover is included to protect the entire bag when outdoors. The Airport Navigator Rolling Bag comes with a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

      Comments about Think Tank Photo Airport Navigator Rolling Bag (Black):

      Everything you'd expect from a Think Tank. Great build quality – packs A LOT in a tight package. As I'm a videographer and often need to bring a small sound kit with me, this bag was just a hair too small. The bigger problem for me was that the top loading camera bays were too wide for my Panasonic GH line cameras, which are smaller than standard SLRs. They did not feel properly secure. If you need more space, I replaced my Navigator with a Think Tank's Roller Derby & it's the best bag I've ever used.

        I like this Think Tank Photo bag overall. It's great to store my photo equipement and it's great for travel. Only one minor drawback, the side doesn't open all the way. It's a little difficult to reach the items stored at the bottom, especially, the big lenses. It's also hard to see what's in the bottom compartments. It will be perfect if the side open(which stores the ipad/note book) come with dettachable belts.

        Comments about Think Tank Photo Airport Navigator Rolling Bag (Black):

        I was surprised when I opened the box and noticed how heavy it was. I guess it's because of the sturdy build. Thank goodness it has wheels. I checked the specs and they disclose the right weight. I bought this to transport two SLRs, four lenses and support gear when I travel. It's just the right size and the innards offer infinite options for organization. For short trips I can even fit a change of skivvies and toiletries (in leak-proof containers, of course). What more could you want?

              Love this new bag! I am a wedding/portrait photographer and needed something to take the load off carrying all my equipment on my back. This bag suits my needs perfectly. I can fit all my gear, easily take it everywhere and it's easy to get my gear in and out all day long. I love the top and side loading options, it really makes it convenient. I would totally recommend this bag, the only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is because the strap for carrying other bags with it was missing from my delivery and now I have to figure out how to get it.

                    I have had a lot of camera bags in my life including Tamrac and Lowepro but Think Tank is the best quality ever. Not only does it hold all of my gear in a convenient and secure manner but it also l;ooks and functions great. I would not hesitate to buy their products again and they can count on me as a repeat customer.

                      A well thought out design that is durable and well built. Traveling 150,000 domestic and international air miles average per year on assignment, the Airport Navigator Rolling Bag is a perfect carry-on traveling companion.
                      Checking as baggage any accessory photography gear, The Airport Navigation Rolling Bag allows the confidence of landing on assignment with a basic shooting kit without the worries of lost gear, time or confidence.
                      Packed with two camera bodies (with motor drives), five lens, one on camera strobe, batteries, two chargers, two bus powered hard drives and a laptop ... all easily rolled through security and airports due to the telescoping handle wheel size of the Transporter.
                      All packed, the Airport Navigator, fits easily in an overhead bin and is sized well within international carry-on requirements.
                      Working in secure environments, The Airport navigator design allows working straight out of the rolling bag due to it's unique and easily accessible front and top load design.

                        Fits everything: 2 camera bodies, 3 lens and assorted accessories, iPad, chargers, etc. All in a compact, easy-to-roll bag. Ideal for traveling... except that I wish it had wheels that enable the bag to be pulled behind AND rolled alongside. Could use extra space for "stuff."

                        A really good bag and not limited to the carriage and protection of camera gear as well. I removed the insert and use the shell to carry my laptop and other paraphernalia for work purposes. The bag handles this task more than adequately although I am careful not to overload and keep in mind the weights of the camera equipment normally carried. The axle and wheel mechanism is robust and smooth too.The camera insert has plenty of room for the assets I carry, a D800 and 4 lenses with a single flash. A great travel bag with room also for a book/kindle and travel docs that can be accommodated in the two side pockets.

                          I love think tank bags and this one is no exception. They are very well made and so functional. I bought this bag so I could carry my camera gear, laptop and tablet when traveling and not have to deal with a heavy backpack. This bag fits the bill.

                              Very nice and sturdy. It hold everything that I need. I am a sports photographer and I normally travel with a 7D with 70-200 mm lense and a XSI with 17-55 mm.

                              Not too big and not too heavy. Just right for my 5D Mark III with 28-75 as well as my 70-200 and 105 macro. Also my flash and assorted goodies.I looked at the slightly smaller one but this one had a slot for laptop and outside pockets for water. Only thing I would have liked is another large outside pocket and 4 wheels.

                                  This bag navigates more than the airport. It's compact size but it loads a lot of gear. Lower center of gravity and top deck is tough means you can put another bag over the top. It is also easy to draw gears out either from top of the side.
                                  ThinkTank is quite generous with their inserts and additional side straps, which is good so I don't have to spend extra money for them. I notice some other buyers have mentioned (not complain) the telescopic handle has a bit more rattle and shake. I wonder a stiffer design would work better.

                                    I bought this bag for my wife who has been carrying around two proDSLR camera bodies and about four different lenses in duffle bags with padding. This bag is great because not only is it easy for her to safely stash both cameras (with lenses attached) but she has room for everything else like her two flashes, additional lenses and computer charger and other cords. This bag also fits and protects her Macbook Pro perfectly. Wheels seem to roll effortlessly and the quality seems to be top notch. Also nice that it came with the shoulder strap although I think this would get pretty heavy if she had all of her equipment in it at one time.
