    Im getting a good deal for Thinktank Airport security v2 :
    http://www.thinktankphoto.com/products/airport-security-v2-roller-camera-bag.aspx

    I was thinking, if I can settle for this and also another big question is :

    Is it okay to send this as a check in baggage ?

    I mean, I never send my camera goods into check in, rather I always carry with me into the cabin as cabin baggage , but since this is ultra big, I dont have a option.

    Just need to know, what extra measures can be taken, if we are sending this as check in baggage, so they airport guys dont throw it here and there into the plane logistics box or the delivery roller lane.

    Let me know.

    I just got the Think Tank Airport Security. I don't use it for photography stuff, I use it to hold my video camera (Sony NX5U) and misc. accessories. I posted a picture in the post your last purchase thread, if interested.
    It is US carry on regulation size for most planes. It is well made and I don't worry about going over curbs etc, but airport travel is another story, I would try to do carry on.
