Another packing thread...

Recommended Posts

I know there are lots of these threads... And I am fairly sure I have read them all!

I am wondering if anyone can recommend a camera cube or insert that would fit into a standard hand luggage case.  I would ideally like it to fit the following gear.. but open to having some items in the hold:

Nauticam NARX100Vii

Sony RX100

2 x Retra Prime 

WWL-C 

Some arms floats and batteries.. chargers etc.  

 

I have been looking at this.. which looks like it might do the trick:

I think this is not good to do the transport by itself (I believe it is not strong/secure enough, the handle would not be able to hold all the weight).

But it is a solution do transport the equipment inside a “regular” case with the equipment better protected and organized.

That approach can work well if used inside a backpack or roller case, as long as you’re careful about the dimensions of your gear, dividers, and case.  Check also about padding on the sides, lid, and bottom. I do something similar with above-water gear on family vacations.  But it is a bit of a pain when on the go, since the cube has to go in and out of an external case to access anything.  Another disadvantage is there’s no good option for all the extras like batteries, spare parts, and tools, but you can use a small pouch in one compartment.  

If you want a really high quality cube, look at Shimoda Designs.  I have one of their backpack systems and it is top notch.

I use a standard domestic carryon size spinner case that I lined with closed cell foam mat material and then added in the dividers from my think pack backpack - it works quite well.

We always carry on camera gear and one set of cloths.  I use a small, inexpensive hard case that will fit in even the smallest puddle jumper overhead or under the seat.  Wrap housings etc in 3mm wetsuit.  Fits exactly same system your are talking about.  Odd pcs and one set of cloths go in the backpack.

Thanks for all the input. Yes I am hoping for a cube or insert that will fit in a hand luggage spinner.  Not for actual transportation on its own.  Although it may be useful for trips to the pool for practice.  

There is a surprising amount of choice in this area..
