    I need a personal bag for P3P thats no larger then 17x13x8 (Sprite airline)
    I have the GPC but theres no way they would let that slide.
    The best i can find is:17.7''*12.2'''*8.7'
    I waS in cancun in feburary and regreted not having the P3P
    I'm headed back in june for 12 days and plan on bringing the P3P as a personal,and have the 1 carry-on for $30.
    Sprite charges for everything but personal bag
    Any ideals

    That looks like a winner to me.
    I dont know where I came up with 8x13x17,
    but the personal bag size is 12x14x16.
    Either way ,your bag looks like a winner
    Thank you

    I got the pack today,It's tight but I think it's gonna work.Does anyone have a clue what spreader bar is between the landing gear on the enclosed picture ?It looks like a spreader bar and gimble lock all in one Or recommended a bar? I wouldent feel safe traveling with this bag with out one.

    That is a P4 in the bag so it's the stock gimbal lock that comes on the P4.

    It's a gimbal guard. I have one from Polar Pro. Definitely recommend.

    MrGarvey gave me the lead on it(thank you MrGarvey)
    I'm not really looking for a Camera /gimbal guard. Im looking for camera/gimbal lock.
    It's a decent bag,Lots of storage, Add a couple S biners for water bottle and flashlight and I'm good to go.
    The measurements listed are 16.4 x 12.6 x 7.9 inches ,BUT
    Actual measurements are 18x12x10. It can be pushed down(without damaging the P3P) to get the airline requirement of 12x14x16 A couple of rok straps will be hooked up Just in case ;)
    It definitely wont give the protection the GPC back pack has ,but it's not as bulky and lighter so it will be easier to haul around on my back all day. Just got to remember its not a GPC.
    This bag will only be used for airline free personal travel bag, other then that it's in the GPC.

    tcope,,,I like how it locks both legs to the gimbal ,I thought it was a gimbal lock with a lense protector built in ,but zooming in I see it's not.That might be something one of you 3D printer guys might come up with:rolleyes:

    I think its a gimbal lock.
    I have gimbal guards,I just dont use them .. BUT ,,I will be incorporating one into a rig for fishing .;)
