Lowepro Slingshot 200AW as PERSONAL Carry-on

Has anyone had any problems bringing their Lowepro Slingshot 200AW as a personal item? Continental allows a personal item plus carry-on. I will be bringing a luggage as the carry-on but the Slingshot as a personal item. I hate checking in bags. I've read posts here that no one has had issues with the Slingshot being a carry-on but not too sure about using it as a personal. Also, anyone know is this bag fits under the seat? Thanks.

I carry a Slingshot 300AW and it fits under seats just fine (even in first class..where there's acutally less room under the seat in front than in coach...go figure?)

I have taken quite a few flights on different airlines with my SlingShot 300 AW as my carry-on and have never experienced any problems whatsoever. I did read a thread somewhere, though, that indicated that when you go through security, make sure you don't have any cleaning liquids in your bag with you because they might get confiscated. By the way, pesonally, there is NO WAY I'm putting my camera bag into checked baggage!!! I saw a post once with pics of what little Canon gear pieces look like and it's not something I want to reproduce with my gear! :lol:

I carry-on my 200AW all the time - fits everywhere (except maybe behind the seat in the 'pods' - everything gets lost there... lol

Canons: EOS Digitals (2) and oldAE-1 etc.; a bunch of lenses - some L-glass, some better than others; Manfrotto tripod w/488 ball-head; a few flashes + lots of other crap…
