This year I'm planning to hit 3 shows hosted by the U.S. military. With the added security, all the show FAQ's state that "backpacks" are not permitted on the ramp...
My question is...I've got a Lowepro SlingShot and don't know if this qualifies as a backpack or not. I don't think it should since a traditional backpack has 1 large compartment that would be difficult to search at the security checkpoint while sling bags have separate, smaller compartments. Anyone know if security is allowing these? I know it's early in the show season in the U.S, but thought someone might know from previous years.
