Shoulder bag recommendations for MF kit

Greetings all.

I'm looking for a good sturdy waterproof shoulder bag for either my Pentax 6x7 with 45, 75, 105 & 200mm + extension tubes, some film & a couple of filters.
My other MF kit which consists of a Pentax 645N with 45, 55, 75 & 120mm lenses +extension tubes, 2-3 film inserts & a couple of filters.

Thank you for your time.

I just got a ThinkTank slingbag and it's nice, but it is for K-5 and stuff.

There is a thread for bags somewhere else. Assecories.

I have a National Geographic canvas shoulder bag and it carries 6x7, 3 lenses and accessories which includes multiple color filter sets for different diameters plus lens hoods. But its not water proof. For that I use a backpack camera bag. You'd need a big bag for the requirements you listed. Stacked extension tubes are just like another tall lens as far as space goes.

I always liked using Mountainsmith lumbar packs (Tour and Daypack) and using padded inserts. I can use it like a shoulder bag, but I can also swing it around to my back and attach it with the waist belt, keeping it out of the way as well as to carry the weight better.
