    Damn!
    Does this mean I have to move to OZ or NZ? 8-)

    FWIW, when I first got into LF back in the early '70s, all I had was an Orbit monorail and the large, fiberboard case that it fit in - upside-down, hanging from the rail. For a while, I used a pack frame with a large bag that I could slide the whole case into. Heavy, and not very convenient, but it did the job for a while.

    I now use a Photo Trekker AW II, but before that I used a normal backpack with the lenses and most of the other bits in a lidded plastic box. The camera was wrapped in the dark-cloth and packed on top of the box. Film holders were in smaller boxes. Sleeping pad foam makes great dividers...

    A picture of my loaded Trekker is here , about 3/4 of the way down, but the whole thread is of interest.
