Hi Eddy

I just use an oztrail chair bag..( Action Chair Bag L )....its not pretty but it holds 2 tripods with room for more.
I extend them to fit in the bag

Dave
Thinking outside the box, nice...

Cricket bag or golf bag???
Again more thinking outside the box, I shall check out those options.

canvas duffle bag from a surplus.....will suit yer style of carrying strapped on lenses like grenades!
I have a duffel bag already, really I was trying to find someone that is really purposeful for the back and comfortable for long periods of wearing at a time.

So thanks everyone for suggestions. I have just reviewed (amateurishly) my latest tripod and bag, you can see the bag here;


I could actually use that bag, with a portable light stand and fit the softbox inside as well, but even trying to fit the tripod and softbox in was a struggle. The other thing about these bags is they are not really supposed to be worn 'Robin Hood' style, but either carried or on a shoulder (but not around neck), like this;



I have this bag;

and really its perfect for a lot of things, but it's just not deep enough. This is the kinda system I am looking for, even with that additional strap that locks into the main shoulder strap to stop it from swaying around. I would love for something like this to exist but that is long and thin and meant for lighting equipment rather than cameras and lenses...

I've seen event shooters do that, not a dumb idea at all. My only question is can you get smaller lighter and very comfortable golf bags? In my mind they are all these huge big things that aren't supposed to be worn/carried for very long, or even intended for a cart and just to be carried from the boot of the car to the cart

Hi Eddy

How many long bits have to fit in it
Golf clubs don't care about comfort
1/2 set bags are available
