Thanks for your interest, but I dont think I want to separate it at this time.

In Topic: packing and transporting my rig

14 June 2012 - 05:56 AM

Knowing this topic has been discussed already I still want to show how I do with my rig since I got recently a storm roller bag, in which I store the housing (Subal for S2 pro), the Subal Dome port for the 12-24 lens, a Nikonos SB-105 Flash and a Sealux Flash housing for Nikon SB-80DX and some accessories. The storm case is supposed as a carry-on. All my camera gear goes into a small Tamrac photobag. The Tamrac photobag can be attached onto the handle of the storm rollerbag and is also for carry-on. The Subal port for the 70-180 microzoom goes in a small pellicase, which goes into my divebag (to be checked) together with the arms for the flashguns and the other dive gear.
I have not yet travelled like this but will go to the red sea soon. In earlier trips I used another big Tamrac photobag in which I stuffed everything into as carry-on, but with a heavy weigtht of around 30 kg I almost broke my shoulders! So this way with the wheels on I should be better of assuming that the airline does not require me to check it.
Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
BTW, I got so many useful and interesting hints from this forum that without it I would have been lost in setting up the gear. Thank you all!

For the past 10 yrs. I have used the lowepro roller x200. It is soft sided with rigid foam dividers which allows me to arrange the dividers to fit my gear. I carry S&S MDX housing w camera, 2 sets of arms, 2 S&S 90Auto strobes, Dome and flat ports, and extra arm pieces, charger, etc. I have always carried it on and fits nicely in overhead. I have never been questioned as to weight or size. I would NEVER check my photo gear as I have had too many instances of luggage being lost, delayed, or misplaced. As for tools and hex wrenches, be sure to check them in your luggage as they will be confiscated by security in carry-on. This set up has worked wonderfully for me. The lowepro bag is not cheap (about $300) but is well made and stands up to heavy use and protects gear very well.

I have 2-YS 90 Autos from my personal gear. They are like new and selling because I can no longer dive due to a lung condition. I would accept $175. ea. They have been in a Pelican case....not in my attic.
