Going to take a few shots of mine today with my Cambo in it since most of the Alpa's are pretty much around the same size as my Cambo. The Rm3d looks a touch to big for the speed freak but there is a bigger size. I did not try putting Jacks or Bobs in my bag but the Arca is a bigger cam for sure. I think my Cambo is basically 6 inches both in height and width.
I don't have the viewfinder, so my STC goes in sideways with the handle up. But I think it would still fit with the viewfinder on pointing up. Also, I have the 150 SB, which has to have the extention tube removed to fit. The ET goes in a wrap under the camera.
Starting to look at the TT glass taxi
I leave the ICU cover unzipped and just tuck it under the edge of the rear opening. It still provides the protection but is a lot faster to access this way. I've left the foam pad inside so that the cover stays semi-rigid but I'm considering taking that out as it is a layer of protection that probably is overkill. Without the pad the inner cover is very flexible and would be easier to zip. When the ICU cover is zipped you can release the Velcro and remove it from the pack via the top opening which allows for a relatively simple exchange of the entire contents. It's a tight fit though for this. You can keep several ICUs with different outfits in them and swap them over in the same bag. That is easier in theory than in practice I found so I got a Satori for my DF outfit.
The rear facing cover zips very quickly to get in/out of the pack. This is also sculpted so that it fits the arch of your back very comfortably which seems to be something few other packs do well.

Thanks, Graham! So it's probably time for another bag. And for an explanation why this one does what none of the various cam bags in my office can do
I have the new Kiboko 22L smaller than the original (and can now hold a laptop) coming next week. I will see how my Arca kit will fit into it.
I don't know , which brand this backpack is , but it seems a Canon freak has found a new purpose for a backpack .

A great way to carry both your babies...
That kid will have a very long and interesting future in therapy. "And then Dad traded me in for a 200-400 f/4L IS."
I'm heading off for the weekend to a wedding and so, of course, am bringing the Cambo. Here it is in an fstop gear Tilopa BC (about the same size as the Loka, but a little deeper). The back and lens are attached. I have only the one lens, but I threw in an Oly OM-D and three lenses into the Medium ICU for fun. This leaves about half the bag available for all the other junk.
Access to gear is VERY easy. I leave the ICU unzipped, The lumbar panel operates smoothly.
