    Big grey Oceanic bag (about 120ltres) Weight 1kg, No Padding or wheels, hell to carry but it does mean I can get my gear and my Ikelight housing and domes and strobes etc in it with some bagged polystyrene chips at each end, fins and wet suit on the bottom. Oh and a few clothes. With just under 30kg. If the bag weighed 5kg I be paying a lot for wheels!

    Evolution is very good at fixing problems. It's just the methods that concern me.

    I have been using bags of various sizes from Tatonka, I took two to the Galapagos. But like the NF they are heavy with a good strong frame, wheels and extendable handle.



    With the limited weight limits given by airlines now, some of these bags can be too big and unless packed fully everything inside moves around too much.

    Scuba Teavel posted the new offering from 4thE this week on FB and my initial thoughts were too big and certainly would be too heavy once filled to carry rucksack style.

    I just use an enormous Gul dry bag with shoulder straps. Weighs next to nothing, wing plate and fins packed round the sides with other gear down the middle (regs wrapped in wetsuit), small daysack on top with clothes and washbag. I never have to carry it far, that's what airport trolleys are for and on liveaboards etc it packs up really small once empty.

    You know, I have never used these bags but thank you for this information! I will take into consideration. Now I want to recommend you to read this website about ironing board. We all need this thing and it is important to choose a good one. Am I right?
