So you've got a belt with 2-3 pouches to keep your most-needed lenses and accessories at your finger tips and your camera on a strap or sling. What do you use to get your stuff to/from a location? Backpack? Shoulder bag? Carry it all on the belt? What do you like?

I put everything in a locked pelican case 1610 chained to the car in the trunk. I don't know how strong pelican cases are (I saw a video where they drove an SUV on top of it), but It would be safer that a regular bag/backpack when you get rear ended.

I was just about to post a similar thread lol. I'm thinking about the shapeshifter also by think tank to go with a belt system.

When you've got your gear out and on the belt, with cameras around your neck and little or nothing in the backpack, the shapeshifter compacts itself down to only 3 inches thick on your back. The downside to the bag is it's not an active shooter bag(can't quickly take things out and shoot with lenses already attached), but since the belt is the active shooting component I think this would be a great combo. You just do all the shooting, not hindered by the empty bag, and then stick everything in the bag when you're done.

I've always had this big tamrac bag that I call my turtle shell because even when it's empty it's a good 12 inches or thicker. So this is what I'm thinking my next bag combo will be.

I've thought about the shape shifter but from the pictures, it looks pretty tall and would interfere with belt pouches in the back. If you only carried a couple of pouches and kept them on your sides rather than back, it could work. Maybe the best solution would be to just keep everything in its pouch on the belt and stuff the whole thing into a non-camera backpack that has a big open compartment for transport. That or hire a valet. :lol:

Yeah I've wondered about that. It might work with the thinner skin system better than the modular. Not sure, that was my one worry about it and why I was going to make my own thread asking that.

You could go with a pelican case and leave it in the car like others are suggesting, but I know there are situations where I want to travel by foot, unload into the belt pack, and shoot.

Rather than walk around with my camera around my neck especially in the cities, attracts more attention than necessary. Perhaps I'm wrong but it seems like a belt pack would be fairly easy to pickpocket in a crowded subway or something.
