“We raised the bar with the release of our Airport series of rollers and backpacks,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo president and lead designer. “We were the first company to design large bags so that they complied with airline carry-on requirements and provided extra security measures. With the Airport TakeOff we’ve taken the best of what we learned in designing those product lines and combined them into a rugged rolling backpack that will help photographers and multimedia shooters safely transport their gear from one location to the next.”
