Can this bag hold an Ice Light 2? The interior ...

Can this bag hold an Ice Light 2? The interior length of the bag is listed as 21 and the Ice Light 2 has a length of 21.6. In theory it could go in at an angle, or there might be enough give that it fits anyway? I'm curious if anybody's tried putting an Ice Light in the bag to know for sure.
Asked by: Brian
Hi Brian, Storing an Ice Light 2 in the BackLight 36L is going to be tight, but doable as long as you store the Ice Light in the center of the of the bag. There is a small chance that you will have to adjust the top most divider in the bags main compartment in order for the Ice Light to fit properly.
