I have this bag as well. They thought of everything, even little elastic strap holders to hold the extra tag ends of each strap so they don't hang losely and get caught on anything. This bag is an acceptable carryon. I took it to South Dakota and Iowa from San Diego. I rode on the smallest Dash 8 bi-prop plane. It was a tight fit but I was still able to get it in the overhead compartment. On normal sized jets, it will easily fit in the overhead compartment.

Thanks for the great review!!
I bought one yesterday. Tonight I'm going to try it out.

One thing that I notice is that you have those blue colored wires through the zippers. My bag doesn't have that in the main zipper. Did you receive a lock with your bag like in the photo below (I didn't)?
Thanks.

I did not receive a lock, but I rarely travel on a plane, so locking it isnt a major concern for me.

The blue zipper pulls came on every zipper on the bag. If your bag is missing some, I'd call ThinkTank, they'll probally send you some out.

I should update this post as we've now had the bag for months and use it non-stop. Its still holding up perfectly and since we've gotten this bag, almost every other bag we own (5) have yet to come out of the closet.

Thanks for letting me know Pat!
I've send an E-mail to ThinkTank.

I've used the bag now for the first time (https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=729033). I think it's excellent! It's huge inside, but not on the outside (though I would love a big front stretch pocket like in theAirport Ultralight V 2.).

Can anyone tell me how big the laptop compartment is, I can't find any dimensions anywhere. I know it's advertised for 15 inch laptops, but I was hoping I could fit my 17in MBP in. Its 15.5in x 10.5in x 1in, roughly.

Edit: I found one in a store and it does fit, barely. I have now bought it and it seems fantastic, so far.

not sure which I like better, the 400 f2.8 or the backpack.

Wait, who am I kidding. That lens has me drooling on my keyboard.

Great review, excellent pictures to go along with it.

Thanks for all the info everyone!

Have been using a Streetwalker Harddrive for 8 months, great to travel with, comfortable fully loaded, I could do with better side pockets and a better tripod solution, but all in all my favorite photo backpack. Nice job on the review

Just got the Streetwalker HD last week, and so far im very impressed. I'm looking forward to taking it to Vegas in a few weeks. Excellent review.

I have this bag too and love it but they didn't think of everything. The one thing that its missing is some sort of easy access battery/memory card organizer like Tamrac put into my 608 bag. By far my favorite feature of that bag.

Does the tripod need to be removed everytime you need access to your gear.

Can padlocks be added to the zips for added security while the bag is on your back, I have had a few attempts by ferals trying to get in while we have been in crowds entering major tourist spots.

I like the hydration bag add to the bag, nice thought people.

Glenn, the tripod would need to be removed if you were going to unzip the entire zipper. If you simply needed to unzip half of it and reach in the bag then you could leave the tripod in place.

There are dual zippers so padlocks could be added if that was needed.

Is this bag too big to fit under an airplane seat?
