We made the Boris big enough to fit an 800mm tele (without camera mounted, of course) and still complies to the regulations for all airlines to take it with you as in-cabin hand luggage.
The box-model is very convenient and will give you plenty of room for a lot of gear. While the inside is fully velcro-looped, the dividers (11 in 3 sizes) and the removable pouches (5 in two sizes) gives you all the possible freedom to fit it to your gear.
The pack sports two large compartments and is opening on the backside to keep your carrying system clean and dry and to have very easy access.
The backpack will be delivered with a nylon bag for storage and other purposes – you wil find a use for it anyway.
We improved the over-all design on quite some points.
The sizes of Boris are within the regulations of most airliners. Most of the time the weight will be more of a point of discussion. This is and always will be a fact of life. It’s up to your diplomatic behaviour – there is no way to tell up forehand what will happen.
If you wonder why the outer/inner size of depth of the bag differs so much more than the outer/inner size of the height: we have added the size of the shoulder straps and hip belt to be secure.
The front pocket is 45cm x 35cm and is not padded.
Since the bag is made of fabric and foam and not from plywood, these sizes have some margin. If you wonder if your gear will fit in – feel free to ask.
