Got a Courierware Incognito XS in the mail yesterday. I made one mistake (got metal buckles along with the velcro - it's small enough that the metal could bang a body/lens when pulling it out if you're walking around - I'll be cutting them off). Great bag, seems just right for two bodies w/lenses mounted, film and an iPad if desired. Or one body and multiple lenses.

My Bronica SQ-A fit by itself - enough room on the end for either film or another lens if desired.

Probably going to get something larger when my Pentax 645N arrives - the Timbuk2 Snoop is messenger-style with straps to hold a tripod on the bottom. That's tempting.

So what bag do I need for an RD-1 and three lenses?

Surely you have a recommendation here Joe!

Last week I custom ordered one from Robyn at Porteen.
Same layout to this but with different material choices.
I thought the prices was very good for a custom made bag.
She sells a larger one as well.

... and just ordered a Think Tank Retrospective 30 for MF gear. Hope it's not too big, might have needed a TT20.

I have a small Lowepro which holds a rangefinder, lens and cell phone, a few messenger bags that will fit a small laptop, and some medium bags left over from the old days.

I have more camera bags than pairs of shoes....

I use the retro 10 for my travel. It fits my m9 and 4 lenses (1 attached to body), sd cards, extra batt, and Ipad. For my dailies I use the LV Andrei which looks like a lunch box. Due to no padding I usually just bring the body with lens attached and an extra lens and I use my wallet as a 'divider'. It also fits an Ipad at the back pocket and has a hook for my keys.

i have a hadley small and a domke f6. i take the f6 everyday to work with a x100 and maybe a folder, a vivitar ultra wide and slim or a bessa-l with 15/4.5, camera wise. i have the front pocked loaded with batteries, film, microfiber cloth, paper tissue, sanitising gel, chewing gum and some printed photos if i bump into someone i took a photo of.

i like the (over) empty space because i can also fit an umbrella, a water bottle or a rolled up light cardigan into the bag.. sometimes i end up going someplace else after work like the japanese neighbourhood, and with the empty space i can tetris some groceries in, and it's pretty amazing what one can fit in the f6!

i've been taking the hadley small out when i go shooting with a camera and 1 or 2 extra lenses, or just the x100 with some spare space (in summer, because during winter i'll just have the x100 into a jacket pocket).

ive been considering getting a hadley pro or large, i really like the slimmer profile of the hadleys and itd be good to be able to have more than what i can fit on the small, also the quality is pretty amazing. i do like the grip on the domke strap though, makes one shoulder carrying much more positive - though i usually have it crossed around my chest anyway.

i still dont have a basic kit for each bag, so whenever im gonna take the hadley out i'll move everything relevant to it, then take out when im back.

I know, wrong forum, but here's my main camera case from my halcyon days in Large Format...

Ain't it a beauty? Protects gear from rain, pooping dogs, nuclear fallout...and doesn't scream "camera case" to curious thieves.

In time, I sold the LF cameras, but kept the case. (No, that's not me in overalls on the label.)

Though its for tools it screams "Fishing gear" to me
Ive got around 6 camerabags. Only one is a backpack and the rest are small to very small shoulderbags. I am gonna get me a Tamrac expedition backpack.
Best regards

deuter "Spider" for daily use (with any combination of gear) in the city as I move by bicycle, train, and foot power... If moving by car I might use the Lowepro Compact AW and a tripod bag (only have two tripod bags ;-).

The RB67 always goes in a totebag...

I have 3 in use at present, a lowepro slingshot 303 for the digital kitchen sink approach, a tenba minin messenger for a small digital kit (although this bag is a bit of a tardis and can fit quite a bit of kit in it!) and a new courier ware bag for film kit and day to day use.

Day to day a Timbuk2 bag that was given away at a Ted conference a few years a go, it has a laptop section that will hold 2 cameras and I cam put in a few files or shopping.
Depending on what I take when we go away either a Lowepro Classified 200 if Im taking the Mamiya 645 or a Domke 802 if not. I have a load of worthless bags that came with cameras etc and I have a Tamrac Cyber something that I put my studio heads in.

I am always astonished by those who know the model names for their bags. I know the makers' names, but learning the model names and numbers... wow!

Cheers,

R.

ouch... just bought f5xb and f5xz the other day. bought the xz since it can fit ipad on the sleeve, but i think ill need to get it inside, it rainy these day.

the 5xb seems to be perfect for light gear/ every day bag. the ruggedwear just look cool! my m2+summitar collapsed, few rolls of film, oldskool small nokia phone and my thin wallet fit right in
...
and now my wife wanted my xz for her everyday bag.. lol

i think the 5xb would be as close to perfect as i could hope for...if they just took the zipper out and made the mouth a touch bigger...

Hey Joe, I don't really understand why you want a larger mouth/opening on the Domke 5xb. I've never had trouble pulling gear out of that bag and my feeling is that the current opening size helps ward off pickpockets. And that's even more true if you did have the zipper removed. In fact, I like the zipper for extra protection against the sticky fingers of others. Just my $.02 worth of course. But again, why do you want a larger opening?

-Randy

the think tanks that i have don't have zippers and have nice wide openings...gear is much easier to put in and take out...i think the 5xb is a slightly better size than the tt retro 5...

Having used now a Tenba messenger for more than a month to carry my daily RF gear I'm strictly addicted to the additional concealed top zipper to get my gear fast and quiet in and out. Without touching the main flap.
Who uses another messenger style bag which offers this additional top access? And what is your impression on this detail? (I'm still looking for a second smaller bag, without notebook compartment)
