Carry-on

Thinktank Rotation 180 34L Backpack

(1/1)

For me, the 34L is plenty bag for my photo trips - and it fits in most overhead bins (check those regional flights ... smaller planes are always a challenge)

Timbuk2 Hero Pack

(1/3)

This is especially true because, as we’ll discuss in detail later, your stuff will likely all fall to the bottom of the main compartment, making the overall carry flumpy. This flumpiness is one of the most annoying things about this bag.

Comfort

Thinktank Rotation 180 34L Backpack

(1/1)

You can also use the pouch on the left side of the bag. There is a strap on the side to secure the top of the tripod, lashing it to the side of the bag. Heavier tripods may skew weight distribution, though. Wide shoulder straps distribute the back weight and a padded, breathable back make the Rotation 34L Backpack comfortable

Timbuk2 Hero Pack

Luckily, we’re fans of black backpacks as they tend to blend in with a crowd and don’t show stains easily.

Strap

Timbuk2 Hero Pack

(1/1)

This bag has allowed me to not look so much like a bag lady slogging into work. The only qualm that I have is that since I'm a rather small framed woman, 5'-4" 135lb, the straps are a touch too wide and sometimes they slip off of my shoulder. A chest clip would be great. Other then that, it's a dream boat

Timbuk2 Hero Pack

(1/1)

To point out the obvious, these pockets are for your small accessories. Wireless headphones, keys (if they’re slim), dongles, a good luck charm, things of that nature.
