Will a Tamron 150-600mm lens with a Nikon D7100 body attached fit in this backpack?
Asked by: Francisco
My dad has this pack and a similar setup. I would say no its not going to fit. It is possible it could fit, but it would be a really snug fit and I would not feel safe with it myself.

question

Can this be used as a carryon on flights? From looking at the pictures it looks bulky.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, this bag can be carried-on on flights. The FAA regulations dictate that the bag cannot exceed 45 linear inches (measurement of height, width and depth added together). This bag measures at 38.85 linear inches. In general it is always advisable to check with the airline and airports you may be traveling through about the measurements as sometimes local rules are contrary to our own here in the USA.
