This bag is the only roller bag I know of that will hold a 600mm lens. What's in the bag? I have a Canon 600mm f4 IS II, 2-7DMKII Bodies, an 18-200mm lens, a 10-22m lens, a 100-400mm lens, a 1.4 extender, a Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Head, a Really Right Stuff Quick release lens plate. (in the Crown Royal Bag under the lens) It will hold 2 chargers, one on top of each lens, a pair of Free Hands Gloves and odds and ends in the various pockets. Loaded with all this it weighs around 33-35lbs. Nothing is cramped and is secure and well protected. The bag rolls easy and stands up on its own. I don't worry about it falling over. There is a security cable that comes with the bag however I doubt I'll ever use it. I can't see it EVER being away from me or out of my sight. I use this bag as my carry-on and a Lowepro Bag as my personal item. Between the two bags I'm able to take all my gear. My tripod is in a separate bag and I have never been asked about it, I just stow it in the overhead. After all, you're allowed an umbrella. :) If you need the room for a big lens or a lot of gear this is the bag you want. Everything about this bag is 1st class. VERY well made.

Primarily used for carry-on while flying, built tough but WAY TOO heavy by itself. A little too large, also. Even though the dimensions are listed as being within airline specs, I'm not convinced I will have no problem getting this in the overhead. And I'm sure I won't be able to lift it into the overhead by myself with the weight of the bag in addition to the equipment. As airlines start limiting weight, this bag itself weighs as much as a good size lens.

Amazing bag

By Rose of Louisiana

Comments about Think Tank Photo Airport Security V 2.0 Rolling Camera Bag (Black):

you can fit a lot of gear in this bag. At first I thought it was a bit too large. Then I realized I don't have to max it out with gear when I don't need to bring everything. I could use the top section for a light jacket or personal items. The best of all worlds. Thinktank has the best design & is well made.

          I have the Airport International roller bag and it is a great bag, lots of room for mostly all of my gear. I decided that I needed a bag that would carry a little more I as a Lowepro fan until I purchased my first Think Tank bag. The quality it excellent! has plenty of extra dividers to configure the bag to your needs. Everything about this bag is great.

                High quality travel bag that provides me the protection i need both traveling by air, locally, or simply a safe place to store all my gear. Although the price seams high, its small in terms of the value of gear it holds. I should have purchased this long time ago.

                It lives up to the Think Tank name with regards to quality.

                Comments about Think Tank Photo Airport Security V 2.0 Rolling Camera Bag (Black):

                I think this is a great quality bag , you can fit and organize your equipment in a thousand different ways. It can take you hours to arrange and rearrange your things. The quality of the bag is superb as expert from think tank. I haven't flown with it yet so not sure how the baggage checkin address this bag. It does get heavy so I don't know if you can take it as a carry-on. But in the end I do recommend it to everyone.

                I've worked out of a few different bags and hesitated for quite some time to spend this much money on a bag. I should have spent the money when I first thought about it. This bag is incredible and so customizable! I can literally prepare for any shoot in just a few moments. I could go on forever about how much I love this thing. I will just say, if your looking at this bag...... BUY IT! It's worth every dime!

                  I use this bag to carry my underwater camera housing, camera, lenses, strobes, strobe arms, chargers, ports, etc, on the airplane. Its dimensions are the exact maximum carry-on dimensions of the airlines that I most frequently use.

                  The bag I used previously used a removable cart system. I enjoy the built-in wheels much better without sacrificing much loss in storage area.

                  I would recommend this carry-on to a friend.

                    This bag is the only roller bag I know of that will hold a 600mm lens. What's in the bag? I have a Canon 600mm f4 IS II, 2-7DMKII Bodies, an 18-200mm lens, a 10-22m lens, a 100-400mm lens, a 1.4 extender, a Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Head, a Really Right Stuff Quick release lens plate.

                    Comments about Think Tank Photo Airport Security V 2.0 Rolling Camera Bag (Black):

                    I'm a wedding photographer and this bag is simply the best I've had or seen. I know a lot of other wedding photographers and most use this bag, it's just that good. For weddings, you need to have a variety of tools, cameras, lenses, flashes and misc. other gear. You don't know what you will encounter, and having everything with you is important. This case holds more gear in a more compact space than any other bag I've had or seen. It's also extremely well made, everything on it feels like it will last through the ruff and tumble life of a wedding photographers bag. To top it off, the security features are excellent. These days, unfortunately, you can't always feel confident leaving your gear in a corner or in another room while you go photograph something. I've heard many times from other photographers who had some gear stolen. Nothing is completely save, but the built in locking mechanisms on this bag at least keep honest people that way, and offer some resistance to those with less than honorable intent. I had a lesser bag that I lived with for many years, but it was starting to come apart and when it became obvious I needed to replace it, I spent a long time looking over everything that was available. This was the only bag I could find that had no glaring weakness, other than it's rather higher price. Well, the old saying you get what you pay for is true here, this bag is worth the little bit of extra money you might pay for it over some other bags. Every other photographer I know who has one feels the same way. This bag just hit's the sweet spot in so many ways, you can't go wrong with it.

                          After checking out reviews on several different rolling camera bags, I decided on this one. I like all the security features on it. I was also able to fit all my gear from 2 different bags in this one and still have some room left.

                              The title pretty much says it all...if you have a need for a roller cause you schlep a lot of gear, this is the case to get. I'm beyond super happy with this case. My previous case was a Tamrac Speed Roller which I used for years and loved but the zippers were finally starting to fail. I bought their current version of their Speed Roller but found I didn't like the way it had to be configured with two bodies with lenses attached and it also didn't seem to be big enough for me. Although the TT is only a few inches longer than the Tamrac, it is also deeper which allows me to store a 70-200 2.8 IS II straight up instead of lying down which is great. As stated by other reviewers, I love the ability to lock it up (I had to jury rig a method with my old Tamrac), love the attention to small details, love the way it rolls (smooth as silk), love the way it doesn't fall over like my previous roller did (especially when piggy backing another case on top). I can easily carry 7-8 lenses with my other assorted gear whereas before, my Tamrac maxed out at 4 lenses. I did make a modification to this case however and added straps sewed into the inside in order to hold the case lid up and off the ground. I have to give Tamrac credit here..their case had this, which I loved. I had the work done at a local luggage store. You have to careful where you sew the straps in order to not interfere with the zipper. A friend who has the same case, noted that the lid is not stiff enough to be held up vertically but mine does fine because I carry a set of black flags (cards) in the laptop sleeve in the front pocket. These are just a standard thing I have always carried and it works out perfectly as they keep the lid stiff enough to stand straight up off the ground with the use of the straps. I also wish the case opened along the horizontal orientation (like a Tamrac) versus the vertical orientatin...but that is a very small point.
                              Other than that strap modification...the case is absolutely perfect! I avoided TT for a while because I thought they were too expensive. They are not...totally worth your money.

                                Great bag, lots of room for our 5d and 7d cameras (with battery grips) 70-200 2.8 , 24-70, 100, 28, 50, and 85mm primes and clothing
                                It fit perfectly on a Delta airliner but had to be checked (did not fit) on a smaller airliner (puddle jumper) from Detroit to Marquette.
                                Bag is very well made and look forward to many more miles both on the ground and in the air with it.
                                my only complaint is the cost but with all think tank products they last a very long time (possibly a buyitforlife product)

                                  Love this rolling bag, at first I thought I may have gone too big, but it was perfect for all my gear and have a little room to add a lens in the future.

                                    I have been accumulating so much gear, my little shoulder bag was no longer enough! I needed a bag that I could store everything in, that was easy to carry around and if I wanted to travel with it, I could take it as a carry on. I decided on this bag based on its overwhelmingly positive reviews and the above mentioned needs. This bag is no joke. Its very well padded and the main compartment is PLENTY big enough for my purposes - in fact at the present moment, it's a little too big, but I wanted a bag I could grow into (which is why I didn't purchase the smaller, slightly less expensive bag in this same line). The additional pockets are well designed and hold a lot of stuff. The bag rolls along well, it's lightweight and has a sturdy handle. It is well designed and well constructed but pricey. However, I think it was absolutely a worthwhile investment. You get what you pay for with this bag!
