I've always considered a diaper bag the ultimate low-profile carry--padded, water resistant and not a temptation to thieves.

The biohazard symbol sounds good. Perhaps add: "double-check seal on fecal samples before closing" ;)

First, I checked and the case is out of stock and listed at 200 bucks. Sorry if I got anyone excited :D

Finally added some more foam to the bottom of the case. This case will be riding around in the back of my truck and I didn't like the idea of all my equipment sitting on relatively hard closed cell foam with bumps and vibrations of pretty stiff truck suspension.

I was looking for half inch foam but could only find one inch at the local craft store, it wasn't expensive so I thought I'd check it out. Even with the included harder foam still in place everything fits and the lid closes, although with significantly more downward force required.

So that it covers the wheel and handle areas, I cut it wider and longer than the included foam.

Also stumbled on the location a custom name badge would sit. Didn't realize that's where it would go. Notice how much higher the padding sits. Probably going to unload everything and take ou the included hard foam.

Edit: yup, just taking out the included closed cell foam made a huge difference in closing the lid. Perfect fit now.

I dunno I wouldn’t want to have a hard to close against the foam scenario. To me lens should fit snug against the foam but not tight. Compressed foam offers little to no absorption of vibrations

Has anyone found a deal on the lid organizer? I need the one that can fit a laptop.

old yoga mat + laptop sleeve = :)

I say old yoga mat but you get the idea here. Stitch or attach the sleeve into the soft foam or whatever and bang it into the lid. I just plonk my retina MacBook into a neoprene sleeve and throw it in, works great. Helps that Fuji lenses are mostly small I guess so I have the headroom to do that.

I think the main thing that was keeping it from closing easily was the padding around the sides of the case. You can see how high it was sticking up in my second photo.

But again, the removal of the included foam solved the problem. I am much more happy/confident with the new foam than the original stuff.

Ya I haven’t messed with mine much. One has all my ad200 stuff the other sits new unopened. Not sure if I want to sell it or keep it.

Kim I put my MacBook in a sleeve and set it on top of my gear so it’s sort of a yoga mat.
I was looking for a cleaner solution with out paying the full retail of the computer insert.

I actually like the think tank lid organizer. I need to look for a better deal though, the lowest I saw was $75 on Amazon. Getting the Peli for $84 has spoiled me.

Bad part is that when I eventually get the organizer it will free up room where I had batteries and cables stored and I will need another lens to take its place :lol:
