Do you think this bag could fit all my dive gear (Cressi Travel-lite BCD, Cressi Reaction fins, Henderson Thermoprene 3mm wetsuit, Seasoft boots, and my regulator, octopus, computer setup? Also, do you think the size of this bag would allow it to be used as a "carry on" bag for flying?
Michael G I just wanted to respond to my own question (I asked this question, thanks for all the feedback by the way). I purchased the XS scuba compact bag, and the bag fits all my gear with room to spare. I'm am guessing not too many are familiar with the Travelite BCD by Cressi....the BCD folds to about 14 in x 8 in x 6 in (approx) and it has it's own small gear bag, and I was easily able to fit all my gear in it with room to spare. I'm hoping now I don't have any issues using it as a carry on bag when I go to Hawaii in November.
BLAIR C Hello,
Yes the bag is large, and you should be able to get it all in it. You might have to cram it all in. Unless your a XXL or have a big BB it should fit. It's a nice bag, and has been holding up ok.
JUDD C I bought this bag a few years ago. It is very versatile and should hold all your gear. I also believe you should be able to use it as a carry on while traveling. I would recommend this backpack.
DALE W Not sure if all you stuff will fit. It would be tight probably. I also think it would be to large for a carry on.
ROBERT K It would be a tight squeeze. I use mine for two full sets of snorkeling gear, but it's not very wide, so it's going to be tough getting the BC and wetsuit in there. I bet you could do it if you wanted to though and I have used it as a carry on. It has backpack straps so I don't think they look at it too hard if you have it slung over your shoulder.
STELLA G The compact is probably too small to fit your BCD, and if your fins are long, they might not fit, either. On the other hand, I bought this with the thought of using it as a carry-on for my delicate stuff, and it works fine for that. I just pack my BC & fins in checked luggage.
DAVID L Just noticed this is compact, I had purchased the full size bag
DAVID L Yes it will fit all your gear and then some. I use it for boat diving to keep my gear organized. Also great for snorkeling trips.For carry on I would measure your fin length and add a few inches to it, then check the web site of who your flying with for max carry-on size. Great bag.
SELWYN R It will be a little bit of a squeeze to get the BCD in the bag too, but it can be done. I have a Zeagle Ranger Wicked BCD and I prefer to strap the BCD around the bag instead of putting it inside, but I have put everything inside with all the other equipment before. The bag is barely small enough to be a carry on as long as its not filled to the brim with extra clothes, etc. I carried it on just last week with my BCD strapped around, all dive equipment inside and my clothes for the trip, and it traveled well with me.
MARIA P I use it as a carry one bag. Yes if you pack carefully you should be able to fit all that is listed. It's very roomy.
EVAN R i just noticed this was for compact deluxe model. this works for my wife to fit everything but would be a bit small for me... you might consider the full size one
EVAN R carry on no but room for everything, absolutely
SEAN P No this bag is better suited for a large snorkel bag. If you a wet suit and all the other dive gear I recommend a larger bag. I use a xl bag that has shoulder stapes for my scuba gear. Sorry if my answer does not help and good luck.
