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.

question

I understand this bag is not long enough to fit a Canon 600mm (IS mark II) lens with the hood attached ready for shooting. But does it fit with the hood reversed and the Canon lens cap attached? The hood on my lens is 18.6 cm wide, but close to 19 cm with lens coat and lens cap attached. The internal width of this bag is reported as only 17.3 cm but external is 22.9 cm. So I assume the 600 mm can be packed with lens hood reversed and lens cap attached but with a slight bump. Can anybody with a 600 mm lens tell me if the hood and lens cap can be packed? Thanks
Asked by: Jonathan K.
The interior length of the bag is 18.8 . The lens is approximately 17.64 long with hood reversed. This is a serious big glass bag so it may be a a little tight but it will work. Of course it is personal preference but I prefer to travel with the lens hood on and reversed. This configuration means a you have a smaller bag, that the lens is easier to maneuver in and out, and finally I think that travelling with the hood in forward position in the bag is more likely to cause damage to itself and/or the lens because of the added leverage.

question

Does this bag fit the C300 MK II with handle and monitor attached?
Asked by: michael
I googled the C300 MkII and cannot imagine that it would not fit. I just traveled with mine for the first time two weeks ago on a photo trip to Florida. It perfectly fit my Canon 600mm (without hood), Camera body attached to a 100-400mm, 100mm micro, 18-400mm Tamron, straps, battery charger and the like. The compartments provide a very high level of creative design and I have several dividers left over to do more. Hope this helps! John

question

Does anyone know if this would work well for the Canon c100 mark ii?I'm debating between this one and the Porta Brace rigid frame backpack, unless there's something even better out there I'm not seeing lol. :)
Asked by: Adriana V.
I recently purchased the Think Tank Airport Accelerator backpack for a photo shoot for reclusive jaguars in Brazil's Pantanal. Getting there from Cincinnati required three airline flights, wait times in airport lounges and customs and security. I carried all Canon gear: cameras 5D Mark IV and 1Dx Mark II and lenses 500mm f/4 IS, 100-400mm Mark II IS, 24-105mm Mark II IS, 16-35mm Mark III and a few other items. It all fit well and was easy to carry. What I liked best was Think Tank compactness. Because of its size (external height of 9.0 inches) and since it doesn't leave my personal possession-ever), it fit into all of the airplane overheads with ease. The only airplane overheads it won't fit is the CRJ100 and 200, but it will fit under the forward seat. It does have less padding and bulk that the LowePro and may have less padding that the Porta Brace, but that was not a problem for me.I never handled the Porta Brace rigid frame backpack but did look up the specs. It's external height is 12. 8 inches, which is almost 4 inches larger than Think Tank's 9 inches. I suggest you evaluate whether this will cause you difficulty in airplane overheads. The Porta Brace does give you more interior height (8.3 inches versus 6.8 inches), but all my cameras and big lenses fit into the 6.8 inch height. Both are good backpacks. I just give you something to think about.

question

Will this fit on puddle jumpers say from Nairobi to small camps in the parks throughout the country? Looking for a bag that can carry my gear (400 2.8, 80-200 2.8, 16-35 4, 50 1.4, 105 2.8, filters, remotes, batteries and chargers, 13' laptop and ipad) and still fit on these small planes.
Asked by: Lincoln H.
It is going to depend on the plane - the small planes I flew on in Kenya had cargo holds & if so this bag will work great. I'm very happy with mine - carried 2 bodies with long lenses- Sigma 150-600 Sport & Canon 28-300, wide angle, flash, and all my regular gear. The bag is surprisingly compact for as much as it carries. Of all the bags I looked into - this was the best for my travel needs.
