    I decided a long time ago that an 8x20 was too big to backpack. . .actually, the 6 holders with the camera would have been the problem . .and the lens. . .and the light meter. But here is JB's 11x14 backpack. . .it will carry the camera, three lenses and four holders.

    Susan, I remember seeing this set up when I was building my Zone VI type 11x14. JB's post on the 8x20 build was very helpful to me BTW! I ended up finding an MEI backpack for the 11x14. It handles the camera two lenses and I can take four holders in the day pack on the back. I recently found one for the 8x20. I sold my REI pack that I was using for the 8x20 as it did not fit my torso. I'm covered when it comes to packs now all the way up to 14x17.

    Thanks for the examples and advices everyone!

    I haven't jet done any final decisions so I am still open for suggestions.
    I have to check if stores will offer something where the camera, couple of lenses, holders etc would fit.
    However I think that the approach will be something like Tatanka style carry rack with various bags/packages.
