Do you think the 'Tenba shootout backpack large' would hold all these with room for small lenses, flash, etc...?

I am just tired of lugging around my backpack in addition to the Nikon cases and I want one backpack to fit them all.

FStop Satori with L or XL ICU depending on your actual needs and ther can/will be
room left over

I choose the satori because it has the volume to handle 2 rather large lenses. in the L ICU
you configure the setup to fit the 200 sideways. the 2 bodies can go wherever you want because
there will be room.
the 300/2.8 goes in a bag (mine is a Kinesis that fits it) dropped in sideways under the lid with room.

that is the 300 in the lid area in black

I also choose the satori for the harness as it is better for higher weight over the lower models and is highly compressible too

Thanks for the detailed info Steve. I watched a YouTube video of it just now and I really like the customization potential but it seems to be out of stock at the moment. How much does it cost BTW?

Any other options?

Hussain,

The Tilopa should be able to handle that gear with an xl icu. I can fit my 800mm lens and a 200-400 with body attached. I don't pack the lens hoods, though. So, I think that your lenses with bodies attached should fit in lengthwise in the icu.

you don't want to do the XL. it takes up too much space where the 300 will go in a case/bag.
I never attach the body to a big lens. bad karma. an excuse/reason for Nikon to claim mount
damage. that's a fair load to have possible bounce around in there.

I own F-stop bags and Gura Gear. For your application, I would strongly consider the Bataflae bag from GuraGear. If you want to carry the lenses with bodies attached and hoods in shooting position you could get the 32L. My 300II with 1 series body and hood extended fits perfectly along one side. I would assume the 200 would be a bit shorter? and leave a little room for more stuff. OR you could easily go for the 26L if you want to mount the hoods in reverse and/or remove the bodies.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions guys.

Geoff, the Gura 26L look like a very reasonable option especially that I don't mind mounting the hoods in reverse and bodies separately. Man that's some spacious bag!

I had a gg bag and i did like it for the most part. The harness at the time was not up to the
capacity the bag itself could carry. At photo plus 3 years ago i had mentioned this to them
where they were showing their gear. With 38lbs in it the support system started to fall short. They sort of blew me off. That was fine and i sold it off.
2 years ago a whole new more robust design showed up. Imagine?
