    Hi can this bag be carried onto the plane cabin ?

  2. joe bloe on June 28, 2018 at 4:49 am

    "a blower no homo"… 😂

  3. JD AroundTheWorld on June 28, 2018 at 4:49 am

    Vlog goals right there! What a sick lot of travel gear! I’ve just ordered a plastic protector for the Mavic controller from eBay. Only a couple of quid but it protects the joy sticks for when you store the controller.

  4. Jerviis Films on June 28, 2018 at 4:50 am

    do u have any problems in the airport scanner when u bring like a crap ton of camera gear

  5. dsh vlogs on June 28, 2018 at 4:51 am

    Do you have insurance for all of your gear and how do you get through customs with all of that gear

  6. J Nijkamp on June 28, 2018 at 4:51 am

    Hi James Matthews, did you had any trouble with the RavPower batteries or something? They don’t damage your camera etc?

  7. Niko da Costa Gomez on June 28, 2018 at 4:51 am

    What is the IC Pro, ICU slope, ICU shallow, ICU micro on their website

  8. Jussi Tarvainen on June 28, 2018 at 4:51 am

    Interesting, how come no tripod or nd filter for a7s ii?

    “A blower… no homo” lmao

  11. Cormac Dunne on June 28, 2018 at 4:59 am

    I’m about to head on a big trip around Asia and will be bringing 5Diii, Mavic, Gopro etc. Do you take out insurance on your equipment when heading abroad?

  12. Dave Clifford on June 28, 2018 at 5:02 am

    Do you know if that underwater housing will fit the Nikon d7200? With or without grip?

  13. Dany #gotaworldtosee on June 28, 2018 at 5:04 am

    thats a solid paparazzi stack, doing a world trip this summer 😀 thanks for the inspiration

  14. Remora Films on June 28, 2018 at 5:07 am

    Can you carry the Zhiyun crane on hand luggage?

  15. TheMrMultione on June 28, 2018 at 5:07 am

    i like what you do. mate.

  16. Marie Falkering on June 28, 2018 at 5:10 am

    This was great to watch. I was cracking up when you got to the end. Do you really need all that clothes???? 🤪🤪

  17. J PH on June 28, 2018 at 5:10 am

    Nice set up! Does this fit in the Hand Luggage? What’s the weight of this kit set up! Could you fit a proper size tripod in there – 55cm height?

  18. Pavel Nikolov on June 28, 2018 at 5:10 am

    i want to steal this backpack 🙂

  19. Nimshad Eguine on June 28, 2018 at 5:10 am

    James What ICU size is that?, looks like a large

  20. Eric Bartolo on June 28, 2018 at 5:14 am

    The bag really looks awesome but I see a major problem with it: it will not fit as a cabin baggage and the drone + batteries can only be taken as cabin baggage.

  21. Survival of the Illest on June 28, 2018 at 5:14 am

    i liked the "no homo" comment to the blower 😉 lol

  22. Fandy Dharmawan on June 28, 2018 at 5:16 am

    My goodness im sure its super heavy becareful your back!!

  23. Lucian Crisan on June 28, 2018 at 5:19 am

    How much does your backpack weight man?
    I have a similar setup (minus the laptop as I don’t really need it) and with long walks, it gets exhausting.

  24. Beck Hobson on June 28, 2018 at 5:19 am

    Where did you get that bag from man?

  25. Hoàng Tú Trương on June 28, 2018 at 5:20 am

    i’m vietnamese, i’m a sony lover and i’m love this video – except i love to call our city is Saigon than hochiminh city :3 – thanks you for visiting our country <3 1 more like and sub for you mate!!!

  26. George Murray on June 28, 2018 at 5:22 am

    Can that bag be carried on a plane? Looks big.

  27. The Quang on June 28, 2018 at 5:22 am

    hi from vietnam and welcome

  28. Douglas Paul on June 28, 2018 at 5:23 am

    i’m always looking for a packing strategy where i can just take ONE bag with clothes and camera gear. This is the first video I’ve seen do it. Thanks. I’m ordering that bag. Hopefully they still have them.

  29. Martin Taylor on June 28, 2018 at 5:23 am

    You’re right about gimbals I just use a cage/rig instead

  30. jootai on June 28, 2018 at 5:24 am

    Great video lad.

  31. Mark-Christian Killick-Calver on June 28, 2018 at 5:24 am

    Do you think you could fit a Phantom 4 pro in there? And how has the gear held up being checked in? I never want to check in my camera or gear because i dont want it to be thrown around by the airport staff :/

  32. Kyra Cinematic on June 28, 2018 at 5:24 am

    intervelometer link?

  33. TheChugwater1 on June 28, 2018 at 5:25 am

    Does this fit under the seat in front of you on the plane? I would not have as much stuff in it  as you do. I fly mostly charter flights so getting it on the plane is not a problem. I have an old Lowe Pro Trekker II and was looking to upgrade to something  more stream lined so it slides under the seat easer. The Lowe Pro has huge shoulder straps and waist belt and it is a job to stuff it under the seat.

  34. Darvin Ryckaert on June 28, 2018 at 5:25 am

    Perfect setup!!!

  35. David Blades on June 28, 2018 at 5:26 am

    Loved this video! Quick question please do you set up you cameras to PAL or NTSC? Many thanks in advance 👍

  36. Pierre Follain on June 28, 2018 at 5:28 am

    Useful video James, Thanks!!
    When you say you can take the bag as a carry on ‘sometimes’. How often were you able to take it as a carry on, how often weren’t you? And what did you do when you couldn’t? You can’t check that in can you? With laptop and all…?
    I have the same bag that’s why I am curious!!

  37. Peter V on June 28, 2018 at 5:29 am

    Nevermind about my post on ur other vid. Lol. Just see what bag u use!

  38. Bo Ismono on June 28, 2018 at 5:29 am

    Cool video. Quick tip for labeling the batteries: If put the number at the bottom you can actually see which battery is inserted in the camera without taking it out and the battery is easier to take out as there is no extra "width" of the tape on the battery.

  39. Gary Braden on June 28, 2018 at 5:31 am

    Tell us about the process about buying and selling the motorbikes. What was that process like?

    Thank you!

  40. Yash Lucid on June 28, 2018 at 5:31 am

    You sound more English than most English people. Proper mate.

  41. OA HSU on June 28, 2018 at 5:32 am

    I just found your channel and really love it! Keep going mate~

  42. Brian Turner on June 28, 2018 at 5:32 am

    Can’t wait to see the footage!

  43. Kyle Tran on June 28, 2018 at 5:32 am

    It is a perfect trip !!! Welcome and thank you for coming to vietnam !!!

  44. Rohit Rai on June 28, 2018 at 5:32 am

    hey bro how’s the Dicapac Underwater Housing? Been trying to get one for my camera too but seen some good and bad reviews about that housing so was thinking if you can give me some feedback on that item would be great. sick video too.

  45. Reubs on June 28, 2018 at 5:37 am

    It’s a risky move if they don’t allow it as carry on, that means all your valuables/camera equipment are going underneath. I love the setup though, very minimalist. I travel full time and decided to just go with two bags, an Osprey Porter 65 and an Incase DSLR pro pack. As I have a tent and stuff, everything including the Incase pro pack fit inside the Porter 65, and I just take out the camera backpack for day trips out and taking it on the plane. For short term trips, I think your setup is mint!

  47. DR0JOE on June 28, 2018 at 5:38 am

    nice packing skills !

  48. Matt kearney on June 28, 2018 at 5:39 am

    Hey great video!! You really convinced me to get this bag as it is awesome! But I have 2 questions is this the x-large pro icu or the large pro, and how waterproof/water resistant is it? Like should I get the cover on the site/ straps? Ps new subscriber, really love your stuff!!

  49. iqbalmak on June 28, 2018 at 5:42 am

    Have you ever use the Lotus 32 L? Could you put Zhiyun crane in Lotus like u put in Tilopa?
