Does My Kit Fit? Streetwalker Pro

Posted on Updated on

After reading the ‘Does My Kit Fit? Airport International v2.0’ feature, Sports Photographer Stefano Grasso, contacted us about his experience travelling with his Think Tank Photo Streetwalker Pro backpack. Based in Italy, Stefano works internationally:

“The Airport International is definitely the best trolley we can have !!
The size is ok, BUT, as you know, mainly in Europe the problem of carry on cameras and lenses is the weight…
I have a lot of equipment to bring with me and every time is a real nightmare. Lufthansa and Swiss allow 1 piece of 8 kilos max in cabin !

The last frontier for me right now, is a 400 f2.8 + EOS body 1D IV in the Streetwalker Pro and my other equipment (200 f2, 70-200 f2.8, 24-70 f2.8, 14 f2.8, 8-15 f4, 2 bodies EOS 1D, Mac Book Pro 15″ and some more things in the Airport International.  No comment about the total weight… Sometimes some equipment flies in a Peli Case, but what a stress. I have insurance of course, but I can’t afford to miss the picture !!!

Here’s how Stefano fits his gear in his Streetwalker Pro:

1) Streetwalker Pro with Canon 400 2.8 II + Eos 1D mark IV mounted + extender 1.4x III plus + extender 2x III
2) Streetwalker Pro with the same gears but the extenders covered to avoid scratches
3) Streetwalker Pro with the same gears and plus Canon battery charger and cable packed in pluriball
4 & 5) the Streetwalker Pro shown closed with all the gear inside
… total weight… 8 kilos, more or less !!
