More gear, bigger bag...hello LowePro 650AW. Too bad the laptop compartment isn't as protected as the Tenba.

After 8 years of flying, was challenged at Virgin Counter in Australia for domestic flight by check-in chick, asked if she could weigh my shoulder bag.
Could have blown me over with a feather ... it weighed in at 14Kg ;-)a allowed limit 7kg for cabin luggage.
They wouldn't let me on plane, so luckily I had Virgin staff friend whom checked me in elsewhere.
I now have a LowePro ProTactic 350 which although bigger in appearance is a true back pack.
Carries 2 x 1DX, 1 x 24-70, 1 x 70 200, 1 x 600ex flash, battery pack, cards and assorted items.
Would show pic but in Thailand at moment where internet connection not so good!
What do others use with regards to gear bags to ensure they are classed as carry on!!!

What shoulder bag were you using that they didn't class it as carry on? It likely would have been ok if it was under the listed size requirements on their website and it was 7kg or less :)
Must have looked like it was bulging to get her attention though.

The cheaper domestic airlines are the most picky about carry on weights in Aus.

I had the same with Virgin going from Gatwick to Las Vegas only I was 1Kg over and they insisted I checked the bag, so I went off making out I was on the phone and put 1/2 Kg of stuff in my pockets. I was well annoyed at the pettiness of the check in and needless to say never flown Virgin again.

I strap a camera or two around my neck if they want to weigh my carry-on. So far so good.

IF you fly between the islands in Hawaii, Hawaiian Air has begun checking carry-on bag weight. You're allowed one carry-on and one personal item (purse, etc). Each must weigh no more than 25 lbs. Usually not a problem when distributing weight between two bags. I usually carry an extra bag just in case I need to shift weight around.

could you please show us how is your setup with 2 bodies + lens attached in your ProTactic 350 ?
did you find side access useful ? or does it make you worry on public crowd ?
i have been lurking around to upgrade my worn out flipside 400. i am usually carrying 2 bodies + 24-70 + 70-200/2.8 hood flipped, attached. still can squeeze 2 more primes in main compartment.

thank you !

Packing for a shoot tomorrow, I left one space free. He settled down for a nap shortly after.

Oh wow I never thought of doing it that way. It's my C-stand that's giving me problems when I use a Steadicam and need to bring a larger case to fit the C-stand broken down. Thanks!

Thanks, it's a 40" with arm and turtle base - just about fits in there. I secure it to the folding handle with one of the velcro fittings that came with the case. It stays in place quite well.
