Nomatic Travel Bag Follow Up – Full of Gear

I follow up to my earlier Nomatic Travel Bag review. I fill the bag up, try it on, and offer a few impressions. Also compare it to a couple other bags like the Topo Designs Carry On and the Patagonia MLC (Maximum Legal Carry On).

Common gear I use to make videos/photos:

Current main camera:
Current little camera:
Cheap microphone:
Action Cam 1:
Action Cam 2:
Little tripod:
Medium Tripod:
Large Tripod:
Pelican Cases:

How does this compare to the Tom Bihn Aeronaut or TriStar?

i bought the wool and oak duffle suitcase and was looking at this nomatic one. my main issue with the wool and oak is that the main strap is for right handed people. i’m left handed and prefer the strap on my other shoulder. also it’s a shoulder bag versus a backpack which can transfer the weight better.

i’m stuck. i’m thinking of selling my wool and oak for this nomatic one.

another thing i wish is that these bags came with an UNDER THE SEAT small attachment or quick bag. if i store this in the main cabin above, having something i can just immediately pull out that has my headphones, iPad, snacks, in a simple bag would be awesome.

Hey, I’ve got this bag too and I’m really pleased with it. The new backpacks on kickstarter look awesome too. Have you considered become an affiliate with Nomatic? You can join from their website.

I like the idea of the main compartment being secured against your back. My only question is that if you have a laptop device in the panel, that would make less comfortable to wear for a significant duration.

Rob Allen says:

I’ve seen Nomatic’s video that (briefly) shows the Nomatic bag carried on it’s side like a classic suitcase would be carried. However I have only seen it in their video and I do not see a handle that would allow the bag to be carried this way. I see the 2 handles that are married to the backpack straps and the 1 handle on the top of the bag. I do not see a handle for the side of the bag?
