So what’s in the bag for my Iceland workshop

I had indicated that once I had figured out what to take and how to configure and pack my thinkTANK Airporter International V2 I would share the details with you.

So here is what it looks like all packed and ready to roll.


Then I had to unpack everything to show you what I had packed.  Good exercise, as one can pack a lot but repacking the same amount never seems to work. Fortunately it all repacked just fine.  Because of its construction, the bag is heavy when empty but that does not bother me.  The contents are secure and the wheels are very smooth.  One of the features I really like is the extra handle on the bottom of the bag between the wheels to facilitate loading the bag in overhead bins when traveling by air.

A tighter view of the main compartment:

      I am carrying two BosStraps in my suitcase and a third hand/wrist grip using the pigtail converted is attached to the GH3 and you can see it in the images. The cameras can’t do without the BosStarps.
