I just picked up a F-Stop Ajna, already have a Satori EXP also. Here it is with the XL Pro ICU with the 200-400mm with 1dx Mark II attached, video head, 16-35 F4 and 1dx Mark II. The second shot has the 600mm ver II

I got the Sukha for my 600mm. I haven't used it in the field yet though.

Another great bag. The advantage there is the body can be attached also. Are you using the Tele Master ICU? I was thinking about that bag but not sure about as a carry on, my Satori pushes the carry on limit but gets by. I really like the idea of top access for the large lenses but the tele master is 25" tall and most carry on it 22" so I have the XL Pro ICU and that works out fairly well.

Yes I'm using the telemaster icu. It's a tall bag.

I just got the Sukha for my 600mm too, mainly for use when in the hills of the highlands in Scotland when you need to be ready for any weather eventuality.

Not to sidetrack but in the previous iteration of bags, I thought Loka was the only one they called carry-on. Isn't the satori much bigger and certainly beyond carry-on restrictions?

You are correct, the Satori is larger then carry on size. I personally never had a issue with the size. Do not fill it to the max as a carry on. I also use the XL ICU which meets carry on size. Only once I had to pullout the ICU and put it under the seat. The bag then was put in the overhead fairly flat. If you load it to the max you could have an issue. Once I had to put it in the size checker and it fit no problem. I would love the Sukha with the TeleMaster ICU but I think that will get me into trouble as a carry on being 27" tall. Even the Ajna is not carry on size being 23.5" tall but just do not fill the very top and it will not be a issue. I have not flown with the Ajna yet but I do not see an issue at all.

The diagram below shows how if not over loaded you will be fine as a carry on. You can see the crush down to size so to speak for carry on. If fully filled I believe it will be about 26" tall

However with that said please use at your own risk, technically it is to large as carry on.

Here is the ICU diagram which may be helpful too, dimensions are on F-Stop but this shows the size difference

I have the Tilopa and one trick I do when I know I'm flying on an airline that strictly enforces the carry-on rules (I'm looking at you Air Canada YVR) is to take out the internal frame and put it in my checked luggage. This allows you to squish the bag down quite a bit. If they still give you guff you can pull the ICU and the bag collapses to nothing. I'd say 95% of the time I have no problem fitting the bag in the overhead bin.

One other thing I do to make the bag look a little less substantial as I'm boarding is to fold the hipbelt behind my back so from the front it doesn't look much different than a laptop backpack.

Even on regional jets I've only once not been able to fit my Tilopa lengthwise in the overhead bin. The one time was on a tiny, tiny little commuter plane and I had to turn the bag sideways in the bin and remove the ICU.

Yeah I'm gonna have to double check! I could have sworn I tried ages ago with my Loka and it wasn't coming out. Thought it was sewn in...

I just looked at my Loka and it does indeed pull out. Awesome!
Checked my Guru and it comes out as well. Not that it ever needs to because it's such a small bag... but good to know.

Really these bags just continue to impress me.
