Re: Will Pelican 1510 hold 500 f/5 VR *with* hood?

Good points, but the scenario I faced was purely a size issue where everyone with a full-size looking carry on was told they had to gate check. I ignored that and said I had expensive lenses and needed to at least try to fit it in the cabin. They let me try.

It fit in one plane, so no issue.

On the other plane: it did not fit, but fortunately the stewardess had a space available in one of their lockers of some kind! Phew. THIS is the scenario the I am trying to cover: if it didn't fit it would have been gate checked. (In neither scenario did anyone weight my bag! Although they did that once in Taiwan.)
