So I'm flying away for three nights, and hoping to get all my gear into carry-on luggage.

Going to be taking a 60D + 17-55 2.8 and 70-300 as well as basic clothes (shirt, pants, change of underwear etc).

Is it unrealistic to look for a bag that could hold this and still be taken as carry on luggage? I really want to avoid checking bags if possible, it's a lot less hassle...

Unless there has been a dramatic change since earlier this year, a camera (or even a camera bag with a camera, couple of lenses and essential items in it) counts as the "personal item" you may carry on board. So, any bag that fits the airline requirement for carry on can hold your laptop, clothes and what ever else you need and can roll down the aisle with you while your small camera bag is on your shoulder.

Thanks, but what I forgot to mention is that the flight is with SAS (Scandanavian Air), and they annoyingly only allow one piece of hand luggage.

I'm determined to stick to my usual practice of just taking hand luggage, but they don't allow such a thing as a personal item, which screws up my normal way of doing it...

I have a roller bag from Tamerac the meets the carry on requirements, however, when I was on one of the smaller planes it had to go on the underside of the plane which gave me a heart attack.

I use Red Oxx - Air boss (external link).

Enough room for clothes at both sides and then the middle compartment has enough room to put your a decent sized camera bag - my crumpler daily and muffin top both fit in it comfortably with an extra pair of shoes at the side and shaving kit/toiletries as well.

Also rated as the best carry on bag from onebag.com :)

I can fit 3 days worth of clothes, 7d and 2 lenses in my Lowepro versapack 200AW. When I get to my hotel I just dump all my clothes out and use the back pack as I walk about.

On their site:


"In addition, you may also bring a small purse or bag for your laptop."

Therefore, if your camera bag is no larger than a moderately sized woman's purse or a laptop briefcase, it should be ignored by the crew.

I flew some routes on SAS in 2010 with no problem. My last flights earlier this year, but not SAS (KLM and Air France) I saw small daypacks going on board as well as small roller bags and a camera hanging around necks. Enforcement is catch as catch can, apparently.
