For months now I have been using the ThinkTankphoto ‘Airport TakeOff’ camera bag/ back pack/ suitcase. However, for months now I have also been using my old Billingham bags and have alternated quite happily between the two depending on occasion or shoot.
Both bags serve me fantastically, but tomorrow I am on a shoot where I will be walking to the venue and must carry my Hasselblad kit and my Leica M9 kit. That all being told makes it a very heavy bag. Since my Silver Fox scooter (RIP) is now deceased and no more, I am walking. Therefore will need to use the roller suitcase facility on the ‘TakeOff’.
This is the first time that I have had to put both kits in the ‘TakeOff’ and what fun I had this morning swapping all the foams around.
When you have all your kit out in one bag you soon realise the most important things are missing… Camera backs…….and film…..
I will write a full report on this remarkable bag in January, when I will be taking the ‘TakeOff’ to it’s limits on a car rally in the mountains above Monte Carlo, but for now, just a little walk into Mayfair to complete my publication on Harris Tweed.
