This black Airport Accelerator Backpack comes from the Multi Award winning Think Tank and 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 inch 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.
