I am still confused when all the new “Indie” folks get concerned about carrying their gear. This Lightware MF1217 holds a system just fine. Works easily with a shoulder strap and doesn’t say “CAMERA CASE WITH LOTS OF EXPENSIVE GEAR! PLEASE STEAL ME!!.
It fits easily in the airplane overhead and many times I prefer this to wheels. So many of the back streets in Europe with cobble stones can be murder on the gear due to vibration. I still take my rolling case but like to have the gold close to my side when its traveling on the road. As hard as the traveling is already, less is more when you get on the plane.
