  1. I agree with your philosophy. Basically less is more. As a longtime M shooter I would shoot with just two lenses, a 35 and a 50. I’ve carried that over the Canon 5D I’m using today.

    I’ve found the Fatboy Versipack will carry just a lens or two, phone, wallet, cards, spare battery. More like a “man purse.” l like that is slings like your strap.

    The Shootsac seems pretty pricey. I still use a Kodak waistpack
    that fills the need you describe too.

  2. Jim-

    I checked out the bag on the link and it seems pretty cool. I agree that the shootsac is overpriced… I ‘d like to see some changes made to it like better neoprene and maybe one that only has 4 pockets and a waterproof flap that covers the whole top. I tried one for a few days and dam it was comfortable but I think it could use a few tweaks. I really just wear now the Y strap with my M and two lenses and a few rolls in my pockets…this is in my opinion the best carry I have ever had.

    Best-

      1. No!!! You have got to be kidding, the Y-strap is awesome! Now I wish I had bought several. In fact, right now I could use 3 for sure. Black Rapid R strap sucks.
