Think Tank Photo Advantage Plus Overview

The Airport Advantage Plus from Think Tank is a rolling camera case that is designed to meet the carry-on requirements for most international and US airlines while maximizing capacity and minimizing weight. To better accommodate and organize the transport of apparel as well as shoes or personal items along with camera equipment, a removable, zippered garment pouch is provided. When in use, it can fit snugly against the top of the Airport Advantage Plus and occupies approximately half of the rolling case's main compartment.

The large, main compartment and its adjustable dividers can hold a complete kit for most photographers. When used as a dedicated camera case, the Airport Advantage Plus can hold an unattached 200-400mm f/4 lens, five to seven smaller lenses, flashes, accessories, and up to two gripped DSLR camera bodies. Users of mirrorless camera systems can fit at least the same number of lenses along with a camera, plus a flash and back-up camera.

On the exterior of the rolling case is a stretchable pocket that is partitioned for a 10" tablet computer and 17" laptop within a protective sleeve. Alternatively, that pocket can be used to hold a separately available medium-sized Eagle Creek Garment Folder, which are designed to efficiently store eight to twelve shirts or pants. A large flap with touch-tab closure covers the stretchable pocket, while a tripod pocket and accessory straps allows camera supports to be conveniently strapped to the side.

Aside from being able to comfortably hold photo gear and clothing, plus a laptop and tablet, the interior of the main compartment lid features two, zippered mesh organizer pockets for easy storage of pens, business cards, as well as small electronics. Three handles are included for flexibility while transporting or moving the rolling case, a four-stage telescoping top handle, a non-telescoping top handle, and a side handle that makes it easier to pick up and place the Airport Advantage Plus into airplane overhead bins or into car trunks.

For security, the main compartment's two adjoining zipper pull tabs feature shackle holes. During travel, a separately available TSA-accepted lock can be used to secure the two pull tabs together, preventing their sliders from being able to open the zipper chain, keeping items within the Airport Advantage Plus secure.

Nylon construction throughout the rolling case and a polyurethane-coated underside provide a high degree of weather resistance and overall durability, which is further complemented by wheel housings that help protect the corners of the Airport Advantage Plus from impacts to escalators and curbs. A seam-sealed rain cover is included for even more protection from the elements should the need arise, and if they wear out over time, the wheels are user-replaceable.

I was looking for a bag that will hold ALL my gear for trips when I am taking the car. This is what this bag holds: Nikon D850 with the Nikon 24-70 mm lens attached, Nikon D7500 with the Tamron 100-400 mm lens attached, Nikon D810, Tamron 17-35 mm lens, Zeiss Milvus 21 mm lens and the Tamron 150-600 mm lens, as well as extra batteries, memory cards, intervalometer, cable release and filter pouch. Exactly what I was looking for!

Study and well designed.

Good system carrying case. Doesn’t make camera gear obvious and is designed with all the features one may need. Think Tank knows their craft.

No need to have a heavy bag on your shoulder when this bag is available. Its also a great bag to have in your car trunk to protect gear and still have fast, easy access. Laptop comes out quickly at the airport.

Everything Ive ever bought from Think Tank has been a true workhorse and very well constructed. We have put thousands of miles on these and they never disappoint.

I cannot believe I waited so long to buy mine.  It has been on a bunch of trips with me in the truck and airlines.  If your thinking of buying a roller bag do not hesitate to buy a Think Tank bag!

Saves me a lot of back pain!

For a while I've been traveling with my gear in a backpack and it's been killing my back and neck. Having everything on wheels has been a lifesaver. All the same gear fits, but this bag is actually smaller than what I had before, so it fits much easier into the overhead bin without me having to push with all my might. Awesome bag!

Great Bag

Carries so much, endlessly configurable, and fits in the overhead. That nice, solid, Think Tank build quality, too.

I typically pack a RRS TQC 14 tripod, D750 and/or D850 body, 16-35 f4, 70-200 f4, and a 24-120 f4. Bag easily fits this w/ or w/o grips, plus batteries, chargers, filters, etc. Also Beats headphones, iPad, MacBook Pro 13 and snacks. Easily fits under seats or overhead. Love it!

Think Tank Photo Airport Advantage Plus - I'm ...

Think Tank Photo Airport Advantage Plus - I'm curious if anyone has used this bag on the smaller regional jets such as the embraer aircraft used by United and your thoughts on the bag for use on regional aircraft?
Asked by: Ron
Ron, I can't address the specific aircraft you are referring to, but I was on a smaller regional jet from a Delta connection. The gate agents specifically said, "this is a small airline so we must gate check any larger roller bags, smaller ones are okay, and anything else other than backpacks and computer bags". I did not go up and check my bag. As I presented my ticket, when boarding the agent to a quick glance down at my bag and did not have a second look and said welcome aboard!
