    Hi Randy!

    The front pouch is large enough to hold two fold out cordura filter cases which hold my twelve 77mm filters, torpedo level, small flashlight, loupe, cable releases, lens wrench, tape measure, etcetera. As far as a camera I can put my little Fujifilm x100s digital camera in there also.

    The main area holds my Wehman 8x10 camera, 3 film holders, two lenses, Pentax digital spot meter, and Black Jacket dark cloth.

    I use the vinyl cooler if I want to bring extra film holders and/or my third lens. I put my third lens in the main section of the bag and then put my dark cloth in the cooler with extra film holders. I keep my lenses (Kodak 14" Commercial Ektar, Fuji 250mm F6.7, and 19" Red Dot Artar) in lens wraps if you are wondering. Things are snug but they fit.

    Hi Alan,

    You must be very strong. I read the case itself is 31 lbs

    Iím not sure if I could get that kit in my truck. The roller is very nice.

    Perhaps in the Spring we may meet. I am near SIUC. Last time I was in St Louis it looked very interesting. If you ever have time, I do.

    There are a number of "soft" tackle bags (like these) that are designed to fit off-the-shelf Plano boxes of various sizes. Some are small and some are massive.

    These bags are handy and always seem to be on sale. (If they're always on sale, are they really on sale?)

    Those old style plastic suitcases and attache cases are nice if you want a bit of protection. No one would bother to steal them.

    For small "ditty" bags, there are cheap bags intended for eyeglasses on ebay. But not see though so need to be labeled.

    Of course, there's always the diaper bag route.

    Randy, if you scroll down on the Amazon link I gave, it lists the weight of the empty tool case at 19 lbs. I weighed mine on the bathroom scale loaded up with gear and it weighed 41 lbs.

    It's not light but I only lift the bag in and out of my Jeep. The rest of the time I'm pulling it by the handle and wheeling it around. If you like to hike over rough terrain in the woods then I wouldn't recommend it but for around St. Louis it works fine for me. Of course I don't get that far from my Jeep anyway because my fused together back won't let me. Back in August I was diagnosed with Acute Rheumatoid Arthritis. I'm not 100% yet but I am doing much better. The medicine that I'm on takes a long time to build up in my system. I see the doctor again in February. By spring I hope to be back to normal. It would be fun to meet up with you, Randy!

    I'll put the bag on my Amazon list. Right now I need to start converting the trailer into something...

    I also have RA, 2 bad attacks with cellulitis last summer. And complications. I had a rough summer. But since I moved to this area I'm ok for now and need to wait 6 months to see the local RA specialist or run to Chicago. My big toes are fused and my wrists lock up and cannot move, but only every few years. Very painful. I blame heridity and power tooks. My father had exactly the same.

    So let's get our winter work done and see you in the Spring!

    Yeah, we both had a bad summer. I started having problems in mid July and eventually ended up in the emergency room two days before my Rheumatology appointment. Thank God for morphene, huh? My back fusion was due to the combination of an unknown birth defect and construction work.

    Since you are not in a hurry, I can show you my bag when we hook up if you like. Your trailer looks like fun!

    Thanks! It will be a usable project. I dislike regular RV's.

    I may make it a darkroom and camera obscura.
