    M8/M9 waist pack recommendation?

    Any suggestions for a good small waist pack that would hold an M8 with lens mounted plus 2 more lenses?

    I've been using a MountainSmith waist pack with Lowepro inserts. But Mountainsmith is not the quality it once was since the company was sold. And it would be nice to have a high quality small bag with inserts that were made for it.

    I'm using a North Face (I believe Sport Trecker). They have smaller models. I was impressed with the build. I use it with a camera wrap for the body and neoprene lens bags. Good lumbar support (that can be tucked away) and detachable shoulder strap.

    I've actually been looking for something like this myself recently. Currently thinking about the Kata DW-491, take a look: http://www.kata-bags.com/productFRM2...&Version=Photo

    Fogg Xylophone. Well made and will accommodate a Leica M8 with mounted Summilux 50 and 1 or 2 other lenses. I have been most satisfied with it in terms of construction and purpose. All in all quite "fitting".

    On its back panel the Xylophone has a leather clasp device that allows the pouch to be worn like a holster on a belt...

    I use a Domke 5FXB with an accessory belt (comes in two sizes). This way I can use the bag as a waist pack, or as a shoulder bag.

    The J5XB, is similar but slightly larger, is made of ballistic nylon and is water resistant.

    Domke 5FXB... Perfect size for an M9, 35mm (mounted), 28mm, 21mm and 90mm. Costs all of about $55, and doesn't look like an expensive camera holder, like many of the rest.
