    i weighed my shiny new Lowe nature Trekker loaded and its over 10K. Its
    said to be cabin baggage freindly but in my experience the modern check in
    nazi sees anything thats "rucksack" as twice its real size. Anyway, what do
    people do to get bags of cameras onto planes? I assume the "full price"
    airlines have arrangements to pay extra?

    In the 'good old days', newspapers used to pay for us to fly business
    class, as you used to get an increased baggage allowance which would
    help in this. Not now....

    Now, I find the best way is to either wear a photographer's jacket with
    stuff distributed throughout that for check-in and then put it back
    into the rucksack, or if you're flying with others for them to hold
    onto some stuff as you check in and then put it back into your bag
    after.

    No easy way, but that's worked for me in the past.
