    Is there a better shoulder bag to use with MFDB kit?

    P1 camera + P30+ back + 2 lenses.

    Anyone using say a Think Tank or other nylon made bags instead of the Pelican case? Prefer using a should slung bag so looking for inputs. Thanks.

    Think Tank Street walker Pro. But with just that a Streetwalker would work fine as well. Nice bags love mine. In mine the Pro version. Body, back and lens attached . Than 28,35,55,150 2.8 and Metz plus a extra pocket or two for batteries and such but the nice thing is the outside pockets which can hold a lot of stuff if and when needed. The regular version is not as deep so for me I would have had to lay down the 28 and 150 2.8 because they are fairly big lenses

    I would go into a store with your gear and play around with it and see what you like the best. I'm a bag whore and switch out until I find one i really like and this new one i like a lot

    I use a ProMag2AW and it takes my Hy6 with attached lens plus 2 more lenses (one over the other), the front bag can easily take a Metz54 flash, cable release, spare battery etc.
    Its ok to carry it over the shoulder (not great but still ok) and you can acces it quite fast.
    I would also go to a store and check out several bags and choose the one which fits your needs best.
    Cheers, Tom

    I really like the Billingham 445. It is waterproof, extremely cavernous (fits a few lens D3 kit AND a few lens Hy6 kit), and the carrying is really well-designed -- the strap is very comfortable.
