I am looking to get the Lowepro S&F system to carry my gear around:
60D, no grip
15-85, 35L, 135L, 70-300L
430EX II

There are no stores near where I live that carry this stuff around so I can't go see for myself whether my gear will fit. So hopefully you guys who have used these products can help me out.

I will be getting the Technical Harness and Deluxe Technical Belt.

Here's where the questions begin:

1. Can the 100AW Lens Exchange work comfortably with the 70-300L and 135L with lens hoods reversed? I've read that the 200AW is a bit tight, but the online dimensions of the 100AW seem to be a tad wider. Also, is it tall enough? The specs seems to say that it will barely fit. The 70-300L is 6.3in tall.

2. Can the 100AW Utility Bag bit both my 60D ungripped and the 430EX II flash with that center divider in place? My measurements tell me that it'll be a tight fit.

3. How much can you stretch the Lens Case 11x14cm? The 70-300L is 16cm tall. The next size up is 11x26cm which is too big. If not, is the Slim Lens Pouch 55AW big enough?

4. Will the Transport Duffle Backpack be able to fit everything? If my calculations are correct, it would need to be able to fit the 100AW Utility Bag, 2 Lens Case 11x11cm, and 2 Lens Case 11x14cm, along with the empty Lens Exchange Case, harness, and belt. Or I could replace the 4 lens cases with 3 Slim Lens Pouch 55AW and use the Lens Exchange as a 4th case.

Thanks.

I would suggest using LowePro's bag finder to see if your gear will fit in the Duffle Backpack.

Wow, that bag is much larger than I thought, which is good, since it'll hold everything easily. I tried the bag finder for the lenses, but it doesn't seem to work properly. It says there are no matches.

In this video Matt Granger shows how he uses this system for a wedding:

Go to 6:00. It might give you an idea about the sizes of the small bags.

Thanks Steensgaard. That was very helpful. I think I'll build up slowly so that if the smaller ones don't fit the bigger lenses, then I'll just use those for the smaller lenses.
