So, what does Richard think of the Airport International roller bag?
“One of the main areas that I photograph is the architecture and building industry. A lot of my clients are based in London and to get around I find using the train and underground the best method. The rolling Airport International V2 bag I use comes into its own here, and fits all my camera equipment that I need for the job. The bag is the size of a small suitcase, very mobile with the wheels which makes it ideal for getting through rush hour with my gear. So a perfect combination. I have been using the Airport International for a few years now and has taken many bumps and been wheeled on very uneven surfaces and it still does not show any signs of wear. All of the zips still work. The two areas that could go wrong are the handle and wheels, but they’re user changeable. My new wheels have improved the performance of the bag and the handle still performs well considering the weight it can be rolling “.

“I find rush hour can be fun when I have my bag. A lot of people do not look where they are going. They push in, always rush rush, so I keep the bag tight to me when rolling. Occasionally people will get too close and try to cut across you behind and not see the bag and it will run over a foot… the pain on their face. Perhaps we should have bright colour bags?!”
