Camera bag that will fit under seat on plane.
So we are heading over the pond again this summer to visit my GF parents in the Twin Cities. As usual the camera is tagging along. Last year I used a TT Retro 20 that I could stuff quite a bit of kit in. However this year a Sirui Travel tripod is coming aswell in the checked luggage.
Therefore I am looking at picking up a new bag, I have kinda narrowed it down to a sling style bag. Then I can hop on my limegreen fixie and bike into the sunset with camera and tripod this summer.
I've looked at :
- Slingshot 202 AW
- Lowe Pro Sling Classified
- ThinkTank Sling O Matic 20
As far as I know these three allow attachment of tripod. I cannot access a sling O Matic, and I am relying on video and pictures.
What is coming along: D800, 24-85, 18-35, 50, Sb-700, Lee Filters, (maybe a F6, maybe.....or a FM2n might be coming home with me ) and various smaller bits and bobs that can go in checked, like charger etc. Also want/need room for Ipad.
It is important that this fits under the seat, and that it isn't too big so it can't go in the "Personal Item" category, max 36" total.
Any thoughts on these bags? Have you used one of these as a "under the seat" bag? Any other options available?
Oh - Eyefi + Small jpeg + Ipad..... awesome
