Overall Product Rating:     

I've been "waiting" for this bag for 20 years. As an event photographer, I need to be able to pick up, put down, and roll around my gear very quickly. With a standard roller, I have to: lay down, unzip, open, pick up the camera, close, zip, pick up again. With the Navigator, I can just roll, pick up, roll again, and so on. SO MUCH EASIER. Thanks ThinkTank!! Now please make a "pro" version --> three or so inches taller to add one more layer of gear!

This is my main bag. Its light even with all the built in frame hardware. I can carry five lenses including my 70-200 and a flash with TWO D4 bodies. It makes me very happy to know how easy it is to get in and out of places with the bag and how easy it is to get things out that I need while shooting weddings in destinations under any condition. There is also a strap for the shoulder but I have no need for it. I've been on and off subways in New York without it getting in the way or maneuvering through rush hour of the city. Best investment and hope to purchase some for my team in the near future. - Susan Shek

great bag but there is room for improvment. 1 ) please change it to four wheels like the Airport 4 sight . 2 ) Please add straps on both side like the Glass Limo. 3 ) Please add 3 to 5 inchs for its' height so I can stick my Nikon D4 with 70-200 with the hood attached into it. If you can improve these, I think this bag will be perfect.

This camera bag is very compact and very easy to use. I have my D4 with 24-120 and D3S with 70-200. They both fit straight in from the top. I also have 1 extra zoom lens, SB-900(2), external battery pack(2) and my laptop. The strap is also very useful when you have to go up the stairs. KEN

Great design. Very good all around quality. You're going to love this bag. It's practical and flexible, and the choice for top versus side entry means quick setup and exit. Bravo, Think Tank Photo. I just wish the laptop pouch had a little more depth because I carry both iPad and computer. I'm keeping my rating at 5 stars because the whole concept is a home run.

Fantastic bag, I store my D3s with 70-200 and my D3s with 24-120, it also holds my 14-24, sb900 4 batteries and big stopper lens holder. The design is fantastic and very portable, I really love the top entry over having to lay it down. What a great bag and design, trust me you will love it also. Things to improve on are minor, I would love a business card holder and maybe a version that is a little taller with more pockets on the from and on the inside. Overall another fantastic Think Tank bag to my ever growing collection. Thanks Shane Psaltis

Love the quality. The wheels aren't hard plastic and so they make no noise when going over pavements and tiles; this is a simply stunning feature. The handle is sturdier that I expected it to be. Below is what I managed to pack in it: Nikon D4 with attached Nikon 24-70 Nikon 80-200 f2.8 Walimex 14mm Nikon SB910 Black Rapid RS Sport ExpoImaging Rogue FlashBender Large Giottos large blower 8 AA batteries Nikon D4 spare battery 2 x Pocketwizard Plus IIIs Small flash light Hahnel Giga T Pro intervalometer Assorted cables Macbook Pro 13 Spare Sandisk CF card And I still have room for one more DSLR body!

I purchased this bag as I was finding my kit a little difficult to carry due to the weight. I use a Canon 60D with 15-85mm lens, a 6D with 70-200 f4 lens, both cameras fitted with battery grips, a flash and other bits and pieces. The bag runs very smoothly even over rough ground and I find the top entry a wonderful feature.

I've been using a shoulder bag, but my body is beat too much now to carry all that. So Think Tank suggested the Airport Navigator. I used it to transport my gear on my plane trip to the southwest. When there, I of course, used a much Think Tank backpack for my daily jaunts. The Navigator held a bunch of's the list 15" MacBookPro +mouse+powercord 2X 1TB Lacie ruggedized external drives D700 D800 D7100 Nikkor 28-300MM f/4 Nikkor 16-35MM f/4 Nikkor 105mm macro Nikkor 14-24 F/2.8 Nikkor 50 mm f/1.4 Nikkor 35 mm f/2 Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 Nikkor 16 mm fisheye my Garmin auto GPS cables 3 filters and I still had room for more stuff And the wheels run effortlessly. I could push it along with one finger

Fantastic, one K3 + grip and 16-50 2.8, one K5 + grip and sigma 70-200 2.8, lenses attached, plus flash, one lens more, charger, and some little things ! Easy to use and carry on !

What a great experience! I've owned my Airport Navigator for about 1 1/2yrs now and it is great. I've wagged it through several airports, piggybacked it onto other luggage and stuffed it with all sorts of equipment including my laptop, my Nikon D800, an assortment of lenses, chargers, batteries, memory cards etc and it just keeps on rolling. Recently, the handle broke at one of the slide connections. I called for assistance and was blown away. No questions, no blaming, no delay. I received a replacement within 3 days along with complete instructions on installation and installed it myself with no problem. Thank you Think Tank and Randy Wentzel in Customer Service for your help.

I fell in love with this bag the minute I filled it. The bigger piece is I've kept it for over 2 years. I have spent years looking for the bag that solves the "never have the right bag" problem. Well this bag is the right bag 95% of the time. It has solved my tired shoulder problems of carry too much stuff too many times. So easy to work out of and no fear that something is going to fall out. I am a professional landscape photographer and although I don't take this hiking..(.I use Think Tank belt system for hiking) it is perfect for in the back seat and having quick access to everything I need in a hurry. Also, easy in and out of cars, hotels and airplanes. Thanks Think Tank! Deanna

Love this bag. As a unit stills photographer on movies I need to work quickly and grab gear as things change and work with as low a profile as possible. The top handle is well balanced for pick-up when I can't roll. Great for in and out of the subway and small areas. For a next generation bag something bigger would be nice so I could get my blimp in the bag also. And maybe a few zipped pockets on the outside. But bravo! I've been looking for this bag forever!

I have this bag, and it's really great and serves me well. I seem to have a need for something a bit larger and have just ordered the Roller Derby for a cross country Train trip. The ONLY thing about the bag I feel was a major oversight by Think Tank was not putting a Cable Lock on this bag. I have the Airport Security, Version 1, and found that feature invaluable. I wish it could be retrofitted for this!
