So, something as compact as possible for this kit, and accessible without taking it completely off your back. All suggestions welcome.

P.S. I have a Peak Design camera clip, but find it unwieldy for the K1. It's more suitable for an APS-C camera for me.
I think that one of the Peak Design Everyday Slings may suit your needs. There's also a designated spot for the capture clip. I have found that when quick camera access is needed, instead of taking the time to release the camera from the clip, I've been able to take the shot by lifting it to my eye, still connected to the clip. Not optimal of course, but it beats missing a shot.

Is there a difference between the Street Walker and the Street Walker Pro? They look identical to me, besides a slight price difference.
The Pro is slightly taller and slightly deeper on the interior. I find with my full frame kit, the extra interior room a good thing.

I can not recommend the Lowepro Protatic 350 enough. It is compact enough that it can be used for every carry. Its belts and straps are SUPER comfy and can be used for LONG hikes, or even traveling ( covid, perhaps), can easily be stowed away under the seats, and super robust in built quality.

I can carry my K1 with the battery grip stored at the bottom compartment, and easily carry a 70-200 attached to it, along with my 85mm, 77, 31, 50, 135, and if i want, i can carry a sony camera with it too. still gives me plenty of room to carry other things if i want.

i had the 450 before, which lasted me a great 3plus years. It would have lasted longer if it was the original (realized it was a knock off after it tore apart with abuse by my hands). Though the 450 was a touch too big for my needs.

really love these bags, and have yet to come across a better bag

Top Shelf

Sorry Paul, I mis-read your first post. I agree that fully laden messengers are pretty hard work.

I have also pre-ordered the Top Shelf. We'll see if it's as good as the CrowdFunding hype says it is
Hi Sandy,

I did some enquiries and:
they will charge my debit card the day preorder is placed ( expected delivery JUL/AUG )
postage to Australia ~ US$ 50

did you fully paid for your order?

kind regards

Same here. I guess they got a bit of pushback by not being as clear as they should have been on the rear straps "removal" which turns out not to be a removal at all.

Seriously hoping that this is "the" bag.
