Think Tank Photo Airport CommuterLast week, I purchased a new camera backpack for my travels: the Think Tank Photo Airport Commuter. For the first time, my buying decision, in terms of camera bags, wasn’t for a LowePro‘s one. In the last four years, I have been using a LowePro Pro Runner BP 350 AW II, a robust and performing camera bag, quite similar for size to the Think Tank Photo Commuter Airport. The main reason because I changed backpack was due, unfortunately, to the not that high quality of materials used for my LowePro Pro Runner BP 350 AW II. I missed two cord zipper pulls as they broke somewhere during my trips and also the thick external mesh padding suddenly started to unpick at certain point. It looked like the camera backpack I owned for several years was not made to last for long time yet. So, I opted for the Think Tank Photo Commuter Airport, a camera backpack I’ve heard such good things about from other photographers. Though I have used it just around town so far and not in any trip yet, this impartial review is my first personal experience with this backpack.

An authentic masterpiece of architecture built over 1,000 years ago from two million stone blocks in the form of a massive symmetrical stupa wrapped around a small gentle hill. Borobudur was in my photographic list during my last year’s journey across South East Asia.
