    Hey there,

    Just curious if anyone uses a Canoe Portage Pack to carry their ULF Cameras. I have an 11x14 I'm looking to make more mobile. Looked into getting a Hunting Game Cart to wheel it around on trails and the beach and such. But the Canoe Portage Packs look enticing and easier to handle. Any tips or experiences with these packs would be appreciated. I believe Jim Fitzgerald told me he uses one, but not sure.

    Thanks,

    Ted

    I bought three of them to try and carry my Chamonix 11x14, to no avail. I bought a Bull-Pac game carrier(meat hauler pack frame) and it's excellent. I carry the camera, two film holders, three lenses and a dark cloth..

    Thanks Evan,

    I just found your post on another thread from 2010. Very helpful, I'll look into those.

    Thanks for the photos to.
