    Hello!

    I'm having a hard time locating a specific camera bag for my needs. I'm looking for a bag that can hold 3 DSLRs with attached lenses (medium and large) and offers quick access!

    Any recommendations?

    What about one of the larger billingham bags like a 555 or a packington?

    Do you actually work while carrying this bag is it it more from storage and transport? If the latter I'd go with a Pelican case, maybe even a 1620 size.

    If you want I'd sell a couple older backpack/bags. 1980's ventage Lowe, I think. I used to use to haul around a medium format system when I was silly enough to backpack with a Mamiya RZ67. That system was about the same size a three large SLRs. But new looking it is not.

    One other Idea I've used is to buy a "soft" cooler. These are made for keeping drinks cool for picnics but they come in all sizes and they are MUCH cheaper than any camera bag. So are junk but some are really well made as the need to hold a case of beer and 5 pounds of ice. I've got one that is made of bright red nylon. The foam insolation acts as padding.

    +1 for a Peli Storm case, I love mine for storage or transportation to locations.

    Are you planning on air travel or hiking with the bag and gear?

    Yea, I'm finding myself strangely turned-on. :)

    Very nice, I really like the tie her up straps,

    I nearly bought one for my M I can't remember the name but it was kinda vintage brown leather one, looked great on M cameras!

    AA always get great write ups too, never heard of cooph tho? One to remember for future! :)

    Cooph - Red Dot recently stocked them. They are branded Leica by Cooph. AA getting too expensive and not very long either. Cooph only £55 so cost effective. made of climbing rope.

    The tie her up is a black rock n roll 125cm. Lovely supple leather but to be honest, I like the Peak Design quick release so use those mainly.

    Like bags, I havent quite found that one that ticks all the boxes you know?

    Yes, I'm looking for a working bag! That can hold 3 DSLRs with attached lenses for quick access to swap cameras.

    Air travel and hiking looking for some type of bag.

    @themediadude - This will hold 3 DSLRs with a lens attached to each one once you move the dividers around a bit. Wow! 3 DSLRs plus filters, spare batteries, tripod, straps, snacks, wet gear, maybe camp gear, you might need to think about getting a pack mule too! thats a lot of weight to carry for prolonged periods. Maybe want to think about smaller more portable options coupled with a DSLR workhorse? e.g. 5D MKIII/IV plus a pair of M5s to keep the weight down a little? I dont know, wow! that is a serious load out!

    Harry Benz straps are all custom orders......he will make the strap to your exact requirements.

    I am quite tall and tend to like my camera strap messenger style rather than round the neck..so a long strap is a must for me.

    The custom build means it is exactly the right length for me :)

    I suspect if you ask nicely he might even build it into the peak design quick release system or any other quick attachment you like.

    Of course price wise bespoke products tend to be at a slightly higher price point, but it's not to far away from an AA off the shelf.

    Yeah I know about the box ticking thing, for my DSLR I spent years searching for a perfect arca plate the could accommodate the black rapid quick release system...I must have bought 10 different designs before finally finding "the one"!!!

    Really? When I switched to an arca plate I just ordered the one black rapid sell with the folding loop. Works great.
