question

Can you put more pictures up? It would be nice to see how the inside is configured. Is it TSA certified for airline travel? Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, we are only able to put up the images given to us by the manufacturer. The airline carry on restrictions set out by the FAA are 14 x 9 x 22 ( L x D x H ), and the Ruggard Thunderhead 75 measures 13.0 x 9.25 x 20.5 , making this bag appropriate for carry-on size.

Are the interior dimensions listed in the Specs referring to the space in the main compartment or does it also include the laptop space? It says the interior is 6.5" deep.
Asked by: Brian and Tisha
Ruggard Thunderhead 75 DSLR & Laptop Backpack internal dimensions of 19.5 x 12 x 6.5" are only for the main compartment. The dimensions for the laptop pocket is separate and does not affect the depth of the main compartment.

I just received this pack today. It is huge!!! I need something to carry my Canon R6 (no grip) with Sigma 150-600 attached. Does anyone know of a pack that will hold the R6 and Sigma which is not this big? I don't care to carry a bunch of other lenses, just the R6/lens combo.
Asked by: Tammy
You can always go smaller, but if you travel, there's room for extras as carry on. The compartments are configurable, it holds my 17in laptop, chargers, and lenses with room to spare. What you don't carry today, you may carry tomorrow.

Would this accommodate a D500 attached to a 200-500, PLUS a D750 attached to either a 24-70, or 16-35 at same time?
Asked by: Brad
All will go in one bag, yes. D500 + 200-500 mounted but then will have to put D750 as body only and the two lenses separately.

question

This bag looks very familiar to the TT StreetWalker Pro. Has anyone compared the two?
Asked by: Michael
They are similar bags but the manufacturers have designed them differently. This Ruggard Thunderhead 75 DSLR & Laptop Backpack is a larger bag than the ThinkTank Photo StreetWalker Pro V1 Backpack, and more expensive too.
