I can't decide. I like the ability to put the 70-200 in without laying it down on the side - so that means the "Security" but can anyone discuss pros and cons of the Security vs. the International?

Anyone have the International and wish they had gotten the larger Security?

I currently have:

7D w/ 17-40; 5d3 w/24-105; 50 nifty; 100mm macro; 70-300 non-L; 70-200 f2.8; 580EXII plus the hoods, chargers, Rocket Blower (large), etc.

The cost difference of the two bags isn't that much - and the Security shows one inch taller and one inch deeper - but it sure "looks" huge sitting side-by-side with the smaller International.

Thoughts? Comments from owners?

Before I can give you my thoughts, I need to know what your intended use will be. Travel? Domestic or international? Storage only? Use as a mother bag to feed smaller bags?

Cheers, Steve

Steve,

I did forget to mention that, sorry. This bag will be used primarily for storage of all the gear; maybe taken on a long trip to a vacation home and feed the "walk around" day bag, etc.

I just get a little overwhelmed when I look at the two side by side and see how really big the Security looks.

User comments welcome.

Hi Roxie,
Your needs are close to mine. For flying I use a different bag with wheels. The security was just too big and heavy--while empty. Also, I wanted a bag to store my gear and use to feed my smaller bags when I went out. Lastly, I have two homes and travel between them. I wanted a bag to be able to put in the rig while traveling. I needed a bag to hold two bodies with lens attached. I use it whenever I go out with my trucks.

The security with the wheels was not good for my needs. Plus, it is more of a rigid bag and I could not fit all my gear how I wanted. I am a TT fanboy and have many of their bags. I called TT and they acknowledged the rigid issue--which is good for travel--maybe. Anyway, I ended up selling my bag and got the Airport accelerator. It is almost as big inside, but more flexible and held more gear and met my needs. The international bag is nice, but was way too small for my needs, plus I don't need the wheels.

Cheers, Steve
