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)

**Backpack folks** - this thing is a million times better as a backpack than aeronaut.

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

Size

Tom Bihn Techonaut 30

(1/1)

The Techonaut comes in two sizes, 30 liters or 45 liters—both definitely on the larger side of the size spectrum. That’s good news for us since we like to make use of every cubic inch of space in our bags. We sure got good mileage out of either size, and we’re happy to say that the harness system was a joy to use on the Techonaut 30.

Zipper

(1/1)

Zippers are loud when they clang together, as usual, so I'd absolutely advise adding pulls or heat shrink or some sort of method to silence them.

Compartment

(1/1)

As such when I say 'side', or 'top' or 'bottom', I am referring to the backpack mode where the secondary, smaller zipped pocket is on the bottom of the bag - backpack mode.
