Orc said:Dumb question of the week: is that your carry-on bag or must you check it because of the weight?
From what I can see on the photo, the weight will be around 10kg excluding the tripod and ballhead. On most airlines you can go-on with carry-on bags till 12kg. The bataflae 18L is a small bag, so is not asking to much visibility. I mostly use the bataflae 26L but also the bataflae 32L as carry-on. Weight is then mostly above 12kg, more between 15 till 18kg. never had any problem as carry-on. I also have a Lowepro 500 AW, but that is looking much bigger then the bataflae 26L and I can't get the same gear inside the 500Aw compared to the 26L. The 500AW from the other hand is more comfy to wear then the 26L if you use it for more then a hour.
