Hi all, I'm in the market for a backpack and was looking at the Lowepro Compurover (external link), however a review on Amazon say its slightly oversize for Domestic airline carry on.

Has anyone owned one of these and travelled with it, or can anyone recommend a backpack that will fit two pro size bodies , a 70-200 IS ii, 17-40, Siggy 50mm and 580ex ii

I've owed a fastback 200 and 350 but, sold them last year and don't think it would fit what I want.

I'm in a position where I can't try before I buy so any experience and info would be greatly received..:)

I guess at a maximum it should meet the IATA standard size

Thank you lannes, well going by that... the Compurover is certainly within those dimensions.

Cheers for the link

I have a Flipside 400AW, which I think is about the maximum size for carry on.

check out Gura Gear for a supper light backpack that meets carryon for most airlines.

The Lowepro Pro Runner 450 AW is considered to be airline compatible by Lowepro, but I haven't compared its dimensions to the dimensions mentioned above...Another option could be the Pro Runner 350 AW, a smaller model.

Correct, just like its smaller sibling, the Pro Trekker 300 AW.
