Despite my initial worries about this bag’s size, I found that I could fit all of my gear in it without having to leave anything essential behind.

It’s not the biggest, nor does it hold the most gear, but it should hold enough to keep most photographers happy.

If you are evolving as a photographer and doing bigger things farther away from home, getting a large backpack like the Airport Accelerator Camera Backpack is a good idea.

If you are evolving as a photographer and doing bigger things farther away from home, getting a large backpack like the Airport Accelerator Camera Backpack is a good idea. It can hold everything you need. While you won’t need for every occasion, this is a proper, no-nonsense, large travel backpack that has a lot of use.

Overall, between the Think Tank Airport International and the Airport Commuter, my needs are fairly well covered for travel around town or across country.

If you are looking for a high quality, backpack-style bag to hold some heavy gear on trips, or find yourself navigating territory unfriendly to roller-style bags, the Airport Accelerator represents a solid investment and will serve you well.

I have been actively using the Airport Security v2.0 bag for the last 4+ months and I can say that it is simply the best rolling bag I have ever owned.

If you travel with a decent sized kit and you move quickly when traveling, the Airport TakeOff should be on your short list.

If you travel with a decent sized kit and you move quickly when traveling, the Airport TakeOff should be on your short list. While it cannot hold a massive kit or a truly gigantic telephoto lenses, it can hold everything you should need for travel photography and it can adapt to your travel needs.

For practical purposes, I’d probably never use the bag so heavily packed.

Not everyone wants the back breaking task of lugging and hauling bags such as the Thinktank Airport Addicted V2.0 up escalators. Yet there is a very strong reason to forget this convenience and strengthen up those muscles – weight allowance.

My overall impression of the Think Tank Airport Accelerator backpack is that it is definitely worth the investment if you really transport equipment around often and have a tendency to beat your bags up.
