Think Tank Airport Advantage Roller- A carry on camera bag for regional jets


Think Tank have started shipping the Airport Advantage roller, which has been specifically designed to meet commuter or regional jet carry on requirements. Often when you take smaller planes, the over head storage bin is significantly smaller than those on larger jets. This can turn into a real problem if your camera equipment won’t fit, and often airlines will insist that your bag gets put in the haul.


The roller’s customizable interior allows you to carry the maximum amount of gear on the plane. The Airport Advantage’s lightweight design helps meet weight restrictions, yet features the same level of protection for which Think Tank is known.


The Airport Advantage roller weighs 5.9lbs (2.7kg), which is handy for keeping your bag within airline weight restrictions. There is also a laptop pocket that fits up to 15” laptops in a padded sleeve.


The bag looks like a good solution for video and still photography shooters who want to take their equipment on board smaller aircraft. The roller is now shipping with a retail price of $249.75.
