Awesome review Al!

Have you flown with this bag yet? Are you able to put it under the seat in front of you? I really hate to put my gear in the overhead and watching people trying to stuff their bag in there, shuffling crap around! I've seen a couple broken laptop LCD's come back from our engineers at work because of this.

I've seen a couple broken laptop LCD's come back from our engineers at work because of this.

my next trip is coming up in a week... i have not flown with it yet... nor do i plan to.

reason is that for my trips, i need a way of taking my 17" lappy and my camera gear... so i'll have to reconsider a think tank rolling bag or something...

this is for my daily excursions with the family or by myself in the city...

and it will fit in the compartment in front of you (you're not supposed to put it under you because that's for folks behind you...) but i rather stretch out and i hate to see the person next to me put his foot on top of my bag...

but yes, it will fit.

Matt, if you're looking at this bag, it's a fine bag... but if you're taller than 5'6" then load it up and test it.

like i said in PM's an empty bag will ride high on your bag and the shoulder strap length will not matter... but loaded bag will put this where it will sit IRL and that is something to consider in a backpack.

Thanks Al. I'd rather have it under the seat in front of me, and if the guy next to me puts his foot on my bag, I'll let him know he's in my "zone"!

hahaha... i've had those moments...

btw, i edited the score of the bag... i was a bit too harsh...

Construction: 9/10
Material Fabrication: 8/10 (yes the webbing bothers me that much)
Ergonomics/Utility: 8/10 (may not be comfortable for taller folks)

Overall: 8.33/10

i've thought it over and decided to be a bit more neutral and fair...
and also, i've seen the next bag i'm about to review... and this one shines in comparison to that...

Great review...I like your take on this bag...much different from the norm. I have this bag as well....I specifically chose this bag for the size. Not too big and not too small, but just right. Also, I'm a TT fanboi. :)

I just bought the 3N1 33... I just couldn't wait... :oops: lol!

Unfortunately I'm not a textile expert but I hope your review will be favorable... after all, I just dropped €180 for this puppy... :|

Great review! I purchased this bag primarily due its low profile size, weight and construction. Your review would have been great to know prior to my decision. Hopefully you can do a few more!

Travelller, i'm sure it's a great bag... when i quickly saw what it in my local camera shop, i thought the materials was a bit soft and light...

there's a tradeoff in this... it's light weight and also the structure of the bag can be softer... kinda like a hard traveling case vs a soft duffel bag or a semi-hard travel case... when i get my Kata, i will try to measure the weight... i'm not sure where i placed my scale but... one thing... i LOVE the color pop... hahaha...

thank you very much... it's my new daily family excursion bag... and it does it's job fine... i know i can stuff this bag with all my lenses but for my use, i'll take this bag, 70-200 (if zoo and/or required) and 2 other lenses, one on body... the rest of space serves for my family duty... lol...

hope so too... i enjoyed doing reviews and i'm glad it is of some use to my fellow peers at PoTN!

maybe i can talk to my local camera shop and ask to "borrow" bags for reviews... hahaha...

This is a great review mate and I have to agree with everything you've said, its just a fanfastic bag!

I have a little review that I've just posted on my blog if people fancy a generalised opinion of the bag. I haven't gone into anything as deep or thorough as the great review here by KingHong.

Thanks Simon and also thanks on that review of the Streetwalker Hard Drive... (yes, quite a mouthfull... who comes up with these long names...)

i'm still in the search for my "travel" bag... but i'm a bit tricky...

i need a bag to carry on in the airplanes with my 17" lappy and 7D + 3~4 lenses and perhaps even a compact tripod inside... then when at destination, i need to carry most BUT the laptop.

i was considering the TT rolling bag line... then i'll still need a flat bag for my daily walks...

anywhoo, i'm still in the search for a good bag... will go take a looksee at the TT SW HD...

The HD is a great bag and it well may fit all your kit in, even your tripod depending on size, I think you'll just have to be clever about your packing! Tripod down the centre with the camera body and lenses on either side, laptop in the back.

1. Ditto for Simon's review :cool:
2. Funny, I was also looking for the same thing*, only I don't need room for a 17", just a 13" (+sleeve, which amounts to a small 15"). That's why I opted for the 3N1-33, but I have to say that I am rather dissapointed with it. At that size, it's no longer a 3N1 it's a 1N1 and it will certainly not be the best "classic" backpack out there... :confused: I could go on but seeing as this is a TT review, I kind of feel like I am threadjacking (sorry)... maybe you won't mind if I add my 2cents to your future 3N1 review - I'm not "seasoned" enough to write my own review ;)

*Just checked Delta's carry-on limits (seeing as they are now one bigbadass carrier...) their limit (external link) is 56x36x23 (22"x14"x9") which implies that at 46x32x24, my 3IN1-33 just makes it. Keep in mind that this is for a standard-sized plane (100 seats+); if you're taking a "hopper" (<80 seats) they will most likely force you to turn it over just before boarding the plane... :shock:

*EDIT* I ended up posting my thoughts here for the time being...
