1. Ditto for Simon's review :cool:
2. Funny, I was also looking for the same thing*, only I don't need room for a 17", just a 13" (+sleeve, which amounts to a small 15"). That's why I opted for the 3N1-33, but I have to say that I am rather dissapointed with it. At that size, it's no longer a 3N1 it's a 1N1 and it will certainly not be the best "classic" backpack out there... :confused: I could go on but seeing as this is a TT review, I kind of feel like I am threadjacking (sorry)... maybe you won't mind if I add my 2cents to your future 3N1 review - I'm not "seasoned" enough to write my own review ;)

*Just checked Delta's carry-on limits (seeing as they are now one bigbadass carrier...) their limit (external link) is 56x36x23 (22"x14"x9") which implies that at 46x32x24, my 3IN1-33 just makes it. Keep in mind that this is for a standard-sized plane (100 seats+); if you're taking a "hopper" (<80 seats) they will most likely force you to turn it over just before boarding the plane... :shock:

thanks travelller for that info... i'm still waiting for the 3n1 via snailmail... but i hope to get it soon...

as for my bag search... i was flying easyjet with a samsonite small roller... very small, even smaller than my shoulderbag i usually carry, in EU and they actually "forced" me to check it in as it is "too big"... i asked them to show me the size restrictions and whatnot as i checked that it fully cleared their check in luggage size thingy at check in... but they played the language card and i just gave up...

i had to take out my 17" lappy and luckily, i had my crumpler in there with my camera and so i checked in an empty bag at the boarding gate...

ridiculous... but oh well...

i think i'll avoid easyjet from now on...

KingHong, I never had any trouble with Easyjet when I flew with them on my trip to Tuscany last year!

You had me worried, mate, I've just had to go and check the carry on sizes to make sure my new Think Tank was allowed! I was sure I'd checked nearly everyones sizes before I bought the bag, but I've just had to have another look! LOL!

"passengers are permitted one standard piece of hand baggage to a volume limit of 56x45x25cm, including all wheels and handles"

"No weight restriction applies within reasonable limits"

I know a few photographers carry a print out of the standard restrictions in there bags for times like this!

Simon,

i travel during fashion week and there are many buyers/exhibitors traveling from Milan to Paris when Milan Fashion week ends and Paris begins...

perhaps i had bad luck because i was sure that my slim samsonite roller was within limits... but it was a different story at the gate...

another reason i'm no longer flying easy jet is that they kill you if you are over the weight limit in the checked baggage... or if you happen to have another bag to ship...

i should actually take a copy of the restrictions in my bag as well..
thanks for the tip!

Albert

I wounder if this bag takes a 70-200 mounted on camera with hood? Did you try this combo with the other stuff?

yes it does take the smaller rebel or even my 7D mounted with 70-200, hood reversed.

when using 7D, it bulges a bit on the top because it is curved down, but no problem fitting it.

Thanks a lot.
I think I will keep my 70-200 mounted on camera all the time, so I had to check.
great review by the way :)

One small question. Isn't this a review of the Streetwalker Pro? I believe the Streetwalker is almost the same, but smaller and with different zippers in the main compartment.

Nope, the bag's a streetwalker. You can check out the tag in-between the shoulder straps. There's no space and a "pro" word after 'streetwalker'.

I'm gonna be getting myself a streetwalker pro soon. Just found a buyer for my Crumpler 7MDH which is too heavy when loaded up the way I need it to. I had the streetwalker harddrive previously so I know what to expect!

Any reason you don't have the HardDrive any more mate?

What I needed to put inside the harddrive weighed a tonne. I sold that for the Think Tank Airport Takeoff roller backpack. Now I need a slightly smaller backpack for when I need some gear- the streetwalker pro.

Awesome review. You obviously know exactly what you are talking about.

Can't wait to read more from you.

Where do you put the 580EX II in the Airport TakeOff? I'm about to upgrade my 430EX II and I'm starting to wonder where I'll put the 580EX II as the one I have now is a tight fit! (vertical position).

ThinkTank must have beefed up the zippers in the Streetwalker. I have both (SW and the SW Pro) and my Streetwalker does not have the YKK zippers that my Pro has. TT seems to be have great customer service and a very creative design team. I've never had buyers remorse with any of their products.

Thanks very much for your fine review, and constructive criticism. I've learned a lot reading this and the Kata review.
