I can perhaps ad a photo later, but I have started using the Thinktank Airport International (roller) and I put the camera body and lenses in a small shoulder bag that fits within the "personal item" limits. I put a padded photo bag insert into the shoulder bag. I have started doing this because increasingly I see even "legal" bags being forced into checked baggage or gate checked because the overhead bins get full or some gate agent is overly aggressive.
I am less concerned about the potential resulting rough treatment for the housing and ports than the camera and lenses. I also figure housing and ports are less appealing to steal than a camera and lenses. So far I have not had any problems with the roller, but I am sure my turn will come.
I am able to get an E-M1 housing with tray and arms, two z-240 strobes, 170 dome, 100 dome, 12-50 and 4" ports in the bag along with a focus light and miscellaneous small things (spare parts, fiber optic cables, bulb blower, microfiber cloth, some batteries, . I don't usually take all of the ports and sometimes take different ports and I then move clamps or something else into the bag.
