That Petrol part number PC201 looks good for a medium format camera.

However I just bought on Etsy a vintage leather shoulder bag that looks OK for the RB67 plus an extra lens.
The bag is labled "Pacoflex" but no hits on search.
I will have to shape some foam support to keep the lens separated.
For a shoulder bag, I think it is necessary for it to be able to hold the camera fully set up with back, viwefinder, and lens on.

Try lowepro bagfinder - use hassleblad to get your estimates.
Looks like the Magnum 400 AW would work...maybe even a bit of an over kill.

13.82 x 9.65 x 11.02 in (Internal dimensions)

A little expensive, however.

Looks good! Do you have any experience with this waxed canvas in the rain?
I tend to get caught in the rain with my gear quite often...

Water beads off well from my Domke F-5XB Ruggedwear.
Domke even sells small tins of wax to renew the finish.

Thanks, but to late. Found the F6 for a good price at Amazon.de and could not resist.

Just got the package, really like the workmanship and how comfortable it handles! Didn't have the opportunity to give it a test drive though, rain proof or not, I kept indoors during the thunderstorm this evening...

The F-6 is a great medium size bag.
Unlike many popular brands Domke bags are uncomplicated and easy to work from.

Scotchguard makes any bag water-resistant...

The vintage camera bag arrived from the Etsy seller.
It is actually a plywood case covered in fake leather.
Very 1960's style, so it will suit the old RB67.

I removed some springy clamps that originally held a set of lenses plus, I would say, a 35mm body.

With some padding, the RB67 fits in upside down on top of the extra lens.
So it meets my requirement that I can have the camera fully set up and get it in and out of the bag while walking around.
