They look like the Zone VI bags. At the price they are asking for them, I would recommend you to get the photobackpacker system. I would never carry all of this equipment on an over the shoulder bag, you will not last 30 minutes walking with it.

I agree about the shoulder thing, my back hurts just looking at that thing. At least get a backpack although I've even given up on that and I use wheels now.

Thanks for the replies. I have a lowe trekker, but really I almost always carry the camera, already set up with a lens on, in a tote bag or over my shoulder on a tripod and keep my holders,meter, film etc in a messenger bag. Everything I shoot is usually within a 100 yards of my car. If I need to go further, Ill use the back pack. This bag seems to kind of suit my way or working, but I could probably figure out a cheaper solution with a cooler bag or something.

Thanks again.

I have a large Tamrac shoulder bag that converts to a backpack. I really like this bag for urban work and when working from a vehicle. It's much more convenient and more accessible than a backpack. It is a very uncomfortable backpack, however. Just a word of support for shoulder bags; they are great if you are not hiking.
