Hi Guys, I've a bit out of the loop stranded in the US trying to get home!

Ron's comments on the ease of removal of a camera with VF from the TCCT are valid, the bag does not open as wide as most quick draw bags. I have a Portabrace bag as well and it is certainly easier to get a camera in and out of the Portabrace, but the Portabrace I have does not meet airline regulations and having just today witnessed an irate passenger have his slightly oversize carry on bag get checked in to the hold, it's not a risk I want to take. The TCCT is primarily aimed at those of us that fly a lot and I honestly think that for carrying on a full size camera it's the best camera bag I have seen. If you don't need to meet airline regulations then there are cheaper and probably better bags.

I find that if I insert the 350 into the TCCT lens first and twist it slightly as it goes in and out of the bag it's no too difficult to get it in and out. I think the build quality of the Kata bags is very good. It's a different design philosophy using softer more flexible fabrics to Portabrace's use of rigid sections and coarse materials.

The TCCT's stiffener band can go around either the front or the rear of the camera in flight mode. Once on the ground it slips in to the extension section to make that rigid, although for a 350 you probably don't need to make use of the lens extension unless you have a very long lens.

I just need the bag to fly. I would also feel it's better protected in flight if the viewfinder is not protruding while in the overhead bin.
