One option is…

Think Tank Skin Body Bag [Mfr# TT052]-
http://www.thinktankph​oto.com/products/skin-body-bag.aspx (external link)
Folds very compactly, which can be inside or attached outside from camera bag to camera bag, depending on which camera bag you chose on a particular day or application.
Also, when on location, it is all that needs to be worn - so you have access to say 3-speedlights if & when required, holds a 70-200f2.8mkII if required, as well as contains in its nifty outter pocket, your lens cap and all your “girl stuff” such as cell phone, thin wallet, business cards, pen, paper, mints, lip balm, car keys, spare batteries, gels, etc.
or,
if want something smaller, then this:
Think Tank Skin Pouch 50v2.0-
http://www.thinktankph​oto.com/products/skin-50-v2.aspx (external link)

If your outfit doesn’t have a belt, then just add this light-weight compact Think Tank Skin belt-
http://www.thinktankph​oto.com …n-skin-belt-v2-s-m-l.aspx (external link)
and wear the Think Tank skin body bag on back-left or back-right side out of view and not inhibiting your movement, then when need something just quickly rotate it to the side or front.

The Think Tank Skin Body bag enables you to move about effectively, steathly and still professionally with minimum of baggage.; both to-from location, as well as on-location.
Convenience vs vanity - it is an individual decision. (Less is more sometimes).

Wow! Just when I thought I had looked at all of the TT offerings! The construction of that look perfect! Thanks!

Dear Alison,

Also, a sturdier but a bit bulkier option is the Think Tank Hubba Hubba Hiney Bag-
http://www.thinktankph​oto.com …ts/hubba-hubba-hiney.aspx (external link)

Think LEAN - perhaps make some of your bags serve as dual-purpose (i.e both a transport medium and an on-location function.)
Making our assets work for us rather than us working for your assets, I find easier.
Remember we spend the first 2/3rds of our life accumulating "stuff" and the last 1/3 of our life getting rid of "stuff"!

Take care.

Mary

Herringone Atlantis Small Olive/Tan

Perfect fit for a 5D2 + 40mm pancake lens, as well as a wallet and mobile phone.

Any vendor link to buy this/these bags in the USA?
Thanks

another question. does the fstop loka have or need gatekeepers to attach a tripod on the side?

There are compression straps on either side of the Loka (actually all of the mountain series bags have this feature) that can hold a tripod, or you could even strap it to the back of the bag. They provide lots of options as one may also be carrying ski / trekking poles or climbing rope depending on the working environment.

Nice fit! So, what do you carry the rest of the flash accessories in? I'm struggling with 3 flashes, the gels, the gel holders, batteries, transmitter . . . want it all in one bag that is sturdy, but not bulky.

Any one want to post their flash kits?

When I shoot with flash, I usually just carry a single lens that I'm going to be working with, and that's usually either a borrowed 24-70 or a 70-200 on my 5D2. And I'm usually shooting in small areas, so my own pocketwizards don't need to come into play unless it's a paid job. There's space in front for the gels and batts!

That is correct, anyone who has bought the Herringbone leather hand strap for DSLRs can attest to the fast shipping from the korean sellers on Ebay. Herringbone is a pretty oft-talked-about brand here on POTN.

I use so many different bags, it's embarrassing.
LowePro Fastpack 250, Crumpler 6mdh, Timbuk 2 small, Timbuk 2 medium, Northface messenger with dodgy insert. I've never found a bag for all purposes.

Oh, I like the Hubba Hubba Hiney.

I love your last sentence . . . sold my big suburban house last year and bought something closer-in to the city that is 1/3 the size (and no garage!). Got rid of a gazillion things! Engineered/renovated the current home around the stuff we love: books, electronics, photography gear, crafty crap, cooking, work.

Now, the right bags and containers are super-essential for keeping the goodies organized. Otherwise we'll have total chaos in such a small space. :-)

Wow Alison, that is quite a transition.
Yes, all we realistically need are the basics and love… [& some photography stuff with bags(s) to keep it in!]

I actually have a Herringbone hand strap lol what a fail :oops:

Is $90 for this little bag worth it? It'd probably be my go to for my 5D2 and the pancake as a walk-around..

5d mk3 and 24-105L. I don't like lots of dividers as they make the bag massive.
