How to pack the K1

Bought a K1 with 24-70 and 70-200 in recent months putting my APSC stuff on eBay including bags for carrying. I outgrew APSC
Did anyone identify the perfect bag for K1 with gear?

I really like Thinktank bags, but also had Tenba, Tamrac and LowePro...
Digital holster 20v2 looks interesting for K1 with 24-70 or 70-200 alone.
Thinktank Speed Freak v2 should carry the K1 with both lenses - battery pack unattached. This bag should also work for a two/three prime combo for travelling light.

Any comments better ideas...?

My Domke Metro Messenger fits My K-1, DFA*70-200, DFA24-70, DFA15-30, DA*300 plus a flash, laptop and sundries.
Slung over the shoulder it is surprisingly comfortable to carry.

WR camera with WR lens? Who needs a bag?
I just put it over my shoulder.

I actually like the new peak design bag, but you'll need to pre-order and wait....

Judging by the number of bags I have I don't think there is a perfect bag, but for me the Mindshift BackLight is a nice balance between capacity and size. I do have smaller and bigger. I use my 31,55,77,100 combo as my 24-70 so for smaller I use a Lowepro Flipside 200. I realize that the Flipside is not that small since I just used it to carry my k1 and sigma 100-300 F4 plus 1.4 TC. I have given up on going any smaller since I always seem to want to carry something more than a single lens bag can handle.

To protect the world from the camera that is hanging on your shoulder...
Seriously, I would not throw the K1 in a trunk without padding, or in a suitcase for travelling.

I checked Manfrotto bags at Phtokina and really liked them. Got one from the Windsor series for a undercover look but they have several different styles.

For your combo they have Messenger bags. Check their website (for better overview) and Amazon (for way better prices).
