I'm actually trying to find a camera/laptop bag/backpack that would actually fit in an overhead compartment on most airlines, the one that I really wanted was the Naneu K4L but the depth was too big to fit.

Has anyone else had an experience looking for a similar bag for travel?

Thanks!

I use a Crumpler 7 million dollar home. It is sufficient for me, but it really depends on the amount of photographic equipment that you intend to bring.

Have a look at what Think Tanks can offer. They give comparision of the different types of carry-on luggage/backpacks in their site.

Used to use a few bags, now narrowed to one.

Stealth reporter = shoulder ache + backache when fully loaded with gear + laptop
Crumpler bucket + Crumpler bag = shoulder ache + backache when fully loaded with gear + laptop. hardly survived a day with it
Domke J1 = Shoulder ache + backache when fully loaded with gear + laptop in external case. shoulders almost died.
Kata OC-84 + Shootsac = weird stares when walking around pulling the trolley (OC-84) when moving around, shootsac comes out when i reach location and begin shooting. no aches whatsoever.

So the combination i'm sticking with for now is the Kata + shootsac. I'd rather go with weird looks than aches. The OC-84 is something like an organiser case rather than a bag. fits my 15inch macbook pro and all gear.

for $30-ish, a lot of stuff can go in + is already weather resistant and well padded.

I don't carry many lenses, hence a Primus minimus or a Kata 3N1-20 is good enough for me!
