So, i has lowepro rover plus aw bag.
Can i take it to the plane?
Maybe there is somebody who did it already...
I try to search the site of lowerpro, but there is information only about Rover AW (external link) (and it is airline carry on(according to the site)), and nothing about Rover plus aw. :(((.
I want to take this bag, but it will be very sad if in the last moment the airport personnel will says to me, that i cant take this bag into the plane(i mean in the cabin with me, do not know how to said it in english)...
:(


Sorry for bad english.

I can't find any size information on the 'rover plus aw'. However, if you load your bag up with what you want to take and then measure it that should give you an idea. Most international airlines follow the, length + width + height = 115cm (45"). If your bag comes in at or under you should be in the clear for size, but check the rules for the airline and planes (small planes can't fit the larger carry on's and so you have to gate check them) they have put you on just in case. I have only been asked to weigh my hand luggage once, but it's always a good idea to check that they don't have a restrictions on hand luggage weight and follow through on it.

Some research should get you your answer.

Good luck!
Christine

The Rover Plus has been discontinued...sorry I can't help. I have the Rover AW and the Dryzone Rover...the Plus version was slightly larger than the current Rover AW, but not by much IIRC.

airlines publish carry on and weight limits. That said, I took a Lowepro PhotoTrekker (big bag) with 40 pounds of weight on my last trip to africa. Your real problem will be plane type. If you are flying a regional jet, you will have to gate check if it doesn't fit under seat. If you are on a full size jet (737 or bigger) you will probably be okay.

here is a list of restrictions for most airlines. (external link)

Thanks for answers friends.
The size of lowepro rover plus aw is very close to most airlines limits and somewhere it is above it, so it is dangerous to risk.I just have not much info about airplane and airline on witch i will fly(it is russia, in our country nothing can be good). That is why i asked for advise or maybe somebody flew with this bag already...
I decided to take my usual bag, that much smaller... Decided not to take sigma 150-500(i think it will have no use in egypt), so all photo stuff that i want to take fit in this smaller bag.
Do not want to risk... It is my first international flight. Just need some more practice ;).
And need to buy some medium bag, between rover plus aw and a small bag.

Thanks. I will upload all shots on my flickr.
I think i mostly will try to shoot underwater. I bought ewa marine uaxp100 housing, want to try it. So no pyramids will be there or other ancient thing... just wanna to swim in red sea and to lie on the sun...
P.S. "great" company - lowepro, did not answer me anything about rover plus aw!!! i wrote 3 letters(email) there in last week and there is no answer :evil:, i just wanna know - why there is no description about this bag on their site, and if it was there earlier has it airplane icon or not... Next time i think i`d better to buy something from think tank bags (external link). Or better say that i will buy next bag, and it will be no lowepro. :D

it is just description, but nothing about airline.
Just came home yesterday, went with smaller bag...
Lowepro answered me (saw the email) - they said that rover plus aw is airline carry on and you can take it with you on plane, but it was late for me.
