    Does anyone own/use a Computrekker plus?

    If so, how do you like it? Any thoughts?

    Comfortable when you're wearing it?

    Normally I don't wear both back straps, but just in case..

    its a massive bag, but it has enough straps to put around you to make it be comfortable when worn.

    I have one and it holds everything.
    2 bodies, 2 grips, 7 lenses, 1 flash, filters/remote shutter/etc

    Its big but worth it if you have a lot to move over non-standard terrain. I took it with me to Japan and loved it. I wear it with just the two main straps and then the small buckle that ties them together across your chest.
    I do not wear it with the giant waist strap.

    Is it so big that I won't be able to wear it with 1 strap over 1 shoulder like I do now?

    Its big enough that it feels uncomfortable (to me) to carry over one shoulder. I always have both straps on and the top buckle buckled over my chest.

    Will a bag like this, fully loaded, be able to be brought on a plane as carry-on? Will it fit in the overhead bin?

    I plan on taking it with me next month. If it doesn't fit up there, I hope it'll fit below the front seat! Either way, my bag isn't getting tossed around like a rag doll with that much equipment in it.

    Please let me know how that goes!

    Checking the specs, it says the bag is: 14 x 8.5 x 19.8 inches. Airline luggage allowances shows that this bag should fit. For example, I plan on flying Delta and they allow 14x22x9 so this bag should do.
