    No different that packing a Sinar or any other monorail system, which I've commented on so many times before that there's no sense elaborating here.

    Lowepro Flipside 500AW if you're going relatively light (3 lenses, no long bellows or extensions, grafmatics). I use this 80 percent of the time and it's never failed me.

    Photobackpacker Kelty P2 for serious hiking. I actually prefer this one for a relatively light 8x10 kit (and I use the term "light" lightly).

    Just some thoughts. Hope it helps.

    Best regards,
    Leo

    I also recall that Doremus Scudder (I hope he doesn't mind the reference) had an interesting post on a slightly different approach toward this that I always found interesting. It can be found here:

    His work is phenomenally better than mine, so maybe his distributed pack method is too.
