Ryanair small bag cabin baggage for my DSLR

Hi,
I'd like to buy a small camera bag as a second cabin baggage to travel with Ryanair (an european airline company). Please note max dimensions allowed are 35x20x20 cm.

I'd like to put in it my Pentax K-5 with 18-55 attached, 50-200, 35mm and polarizer.

Can you suggest me some not so expensive models?

Thanks

If you can't find a dedicated camera bag you might be able to find a bag to put this into. This is a camera bag insert that looks like it would work. You might need a double sided rear lens cap to put two of the lenses together but otherwise this looks like it might work.

Note that I am talking about Shape 3 not Shape 1. 22 x 20 x 11 cm's.

A little larger but similar idea:

In theory this will work also:

Lowepro's bag finder says it will at least. I used K5ii and two small lenses plus a few memory cards as the equipment.

You should jump on this deal, especially for $17: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/94-pentax-price-watch/300037-good-deal-lo...rama-17-a.html

According to Lowepro, external dimensions are: 35.5 x 22.5 x 23.7 cm (13.98 x 8.86 x 9.33 in): Nova Sport 17L AW Camera bags, backpacks and rolling cases

Too big isn't it? I have that bag and it is bigger than you may realize. It would swallow the gear he wants to carry.

My Pentax gadget bag is plenty large it just isn't made now.
Maybe one of the case logic bags.

2 cm is less than an inch. I doubt any airline is going to object and the bag is soft so while the dimensions are slightly larger, in actual use, it should easily comply with regulations.

I admit, I am a big Lowepro fan. Twice they treated me extremely well. First time, I called customer service looking to buy a replacement strap. They send it to me for free. Second time, I broke a latch on my Toploader. Instead of repairing, they sent me a brand new bag. The customer service guy (who sounded like the owner of the company) said that the old latch was not up to their standards.

You have obviously never flown Ryanair. They have exactly one focus: price. If you comply with their strict regulations you get around for next to nothing. Break any of them in any way and you pay extra.

I own a copy of this bag (and the 17L Lowepro - way too big for what you want to carry btw). This is a nice small bag that I think might work for you. I measured mine and it is pretty much what they say. The nice thing is that it is small and you can organize the inside how you like. There are extra pockets and the top can be zipped shut or just flapped shut with velcro for easy access.

I got mine for half this but it was used.

I recently went on a trip and had my DA 70 Limited, my DA 40 Limited and my DA 15 Limited as well as my 1.4x HD TC and a battery grip and my K3 in this bag. I currently have it configured with no dividers and I'm using it for my K3 with DA* 200 and occasionally I'll toss a limited prime in the end pouch to add to the fun. I can toss the DA 40 and the 1.4x TC in the end pouch and still have no problems carrying it. 40/56/200/280 is not a bad set of focal lengths for a small kit. I've carried my 18-135 and two primes as well. It's fairly versatile.

Take a vest with big pockets. Look for "RufusRoo"
This is my standard solution.

The f-stop Small Pro ICU for the Mountain series backpacks exactly fits these dimensions and would easily take the gear you listed.

It's not a bag.
