Help! Canon 500mm Lens and compatibility with Kenya Airways (UK) 20cm bag restriction
Kenya Airways has a 20cm max depth limitation on hand luggage and this slightly worries me, so Im looking for a bag / rucksack which is most compatible with this and compatible with a Canon 500mm and my gear - a 100mm, 17-40L, 5DII and 7D and some bits which cannot go in the hold iPad, backup photo storage etc. No laptop needed.
After much research I am leaning toward either .
the new Think Tank Airport Accelerator or
the Guru Gear Bataflae 32L
However, both bags are 23cm deep and this is still 3cm over the Kenya Airways (UK) allowance of 55*38*20cm.
So I have a couple of questions, and if anyone has an answer or suggestion on any of them I would appreciate it
1.Have I missed a quality rucksack/bag which will meet my requirements and more importantly be closer to the Kenya airways 20cm depth restriction?
2.Has anyone used either of the two bags mentioned above and has been asked to squish them into a 20cm sizing frame during check in? Im wondering if without a laptop if they will actually squish to 20cm without a laptop?
Many thanks for any help or other advice.
PS I have been to Tanzania / Kenya twice before and never been challenged, but Ive never taken such a big lens / bag before or quite so much gear value. The thought of being asked to check it in fills me with horror! Also note that the size allowance on Kenya Airways (US) is more generous.
