Guys and gals, is there a bag out there that can hold the following gear and stay within airline carry-on specs?

1 pro body camera and 5dII
70-200 2.8 IS
16-35 2.8
50 1.4
100mm macro
580 exII
1.4 extender
radio shutter release
various screw in polarizers
Lee filter holder and 3filter pouch
misc little bits.

Preferrably something that doesn't scream photography gear, but that is not a requirement. Also, I could always put the radio shutter release and filters in my checked baggage to save a wee bit of room. Maybe even the flash or something if necessary.

Was thinking maybe Domke F-1X or J-1 Journalist.

I have a Domke J-1 and have taken it carry-on many times and never had a problem.

I carry in it:
Canon 40D (gripped)
Canon Elan 7NE (gripped)
Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro
Canon Extender EF 1.4x II
Canon 580exII
Canon 580ex
Skyport radio triggers
Pluse batteries, filters, etc.

My buddy has a F-1X and carries about the same amount of gear as me. The F-1X is a bit longer so it holds two bodies a bit easier (one with lens attached one without) though the J-1 is a bit deeper. Personally I like the J-1 better as the side flaps cover the pockets better and have clips and velcro vs. just velcro on the F-1X.

SOunds like a similar amount of gear to what I plan on carrying. Good info.

Thats a lot for a shoulder bag. Any reason not to use rolling cases?

Maybe look at the Lowepro Pro Roller x300? It is a rolling case but converts to a backpack.

Because I want to use the carry-on once I reach my destination. I don't want to drag a wheeled bag down the beaches of Hawaii, nor do I like the backpacks unless hiking for wildlife with supertelephoto lenses. I have at the house a large wheeled bag and a hard pelican case both of which are too large. I have the lenstrekker 600 backpack for supertelephoto work, and a Canon shoulder bag that isn't quite large enough and I could live without the advertisement stitching on the outside of the bag that reads "CANON". LOL I'm a grown man in great physical condition, I don't have a problem hauling a lot of gear around. Only reason I posted this is that there are no gear stores for hundreds of miles from me, and I can search online until my head hurts. I like real world feedback. I am leaning toward the Domke F-1X, but I was hoping that all that gear would have fit in the medium Jack bag by Jill-e.

Well I was going to get a gym membership, but opted for the bag instead ;)
Actually, doing photojournalism I need more portability than a roller can offer and the ability to access my gear without delay. When I eventually grab a harness system I'll probably move over a ThinkTank roller.

Lovely bag. Mine is pretty empty still, but slowly growing weight. Really love mine.

F1x or the Domke F7 Double AF. I've used them both many times with 2-3 bodies and 15-30 Sigma, 24-70 2.8 L, 70-200 2.8 IS and 100-400, a couple of flashes and maybe a couple of primes and stuff. The F7 also takes the 300 f/4 instead of the 100-400. I've even fit the F1 under the seat in some aircraft.

As stated previously, check out the Lowepro Pro Roller x200 or x300. They are multi-functional, and will do the job.

The Lowepro Stealth Reporter series will handle it, but it will be heavy. These are super weil-made bags with a waterproof cover. Pick the size that works for your gear.

If you like to store your lenses vertically than the SR seies are not tall enough, based on when I bought my ProMag2 and was trying it out versus the SR's they had. None of them were tall enough for the 70-200 f4.

The ProMag fits everything you see in my Sig tag, except the CZ which would have to be stacked on top of another lens, such the 85/1.8... everything is accessible while on the move which is why I bought it. Sling bags are useless for access, imho. Been there, done that.

I don't see a way of geting a second body in, though.

I don't know if Lowepro make a bigger(wider) bag but if your only choices are laying the 70-200 horizontally then just about anything goes.

Also I found the ProMag better built than the SR series. If you do find a shoulder bag...it's going to be heavy with all your gear for extended wear....make sure it also comes with a waist belt. Main belt cross shouldered and the waist belt...Worth it's weight in gold, imo.


Bohdan - I may be, and probably am, completely wrong.

Think Tank UD 40 or a Stealth Reporter 550 will hold all of that.
