    How do you carry your 8x10 holders?

    Hello all, I am just getting back into shooting LF and I'm working out all the little stuff about carrying and accessing my gear. I think I'm pretty squared away, but in case i missed anything, how do you all carry your holders, and while we're at it, your loupe, meter, compass, viewing filter etc?

    I appreciate your sage wisdom and advice.

    Tamrac Explorer 8. Holds 7 lenses (some are tiny) and all the other small gadgets but not filmholders. Cary the filmholders in a shoulder bag.

    I suppose I should have started, huh...

    B&J 8x10 w/ext rail, cloth and my only lens live inside a Tenba case, I think it's an old projector case.

    Film holders and a Domke holder of filters go in a Mountainsmith Tour FX with a no slip Kata strap, it holds 7 comfortably.

    758DR, small gray card, Palm e2, compass, Tiffen viewing filter, wista loupe and ViewCatcher all go in a Camelbak FlashFlo and are each tethered with badgemates.

    And if need be this can also fit in a North Face Alpha Aurora which also carries the tripod, but its heavy and i'm old.

    So, what am I missing or overlooking?

    The Tamrac Explorer 8 is a nice backpack (I use one for 4x5) but it is too small for an 8x10 set.
    The Super Trekker is just large enough for a Wista Field 8x10 setup but I doubt it holds a bench camera (ok, I carry some large lenses like Super Angulon 165/8 and Symmar 360/5,6).

    You might need an assistant.

    Sounds like you have a very similar camera to my kit. (B&J 8x10, extension rails, etc.) Everyting, camera, holders, accessories fits into a Calumet case of roughly 18"x14"x22". I regularly take my this kit into the field in a Schwinn bicycle trailer. The trailer works well as a push cart and folds up well into the back of my car. Using this, I can negotiate just about any terrain and get to locations I would never be able to carry my kit to.

    For the holders by themselves - a cheap vinyl briefcase

    That's interesting! Happy that my 8x10 Chamonix doesn't know that because it's been carried around in an Expedition 8 for 4 years.

    The B&J is another story, had one of thoes and you would relly need to invest in a Donkey or a Sherpa. I am not aware of any backpack that is large enough.

    I have an old Lowe Pro backback that came with a separate laptop bag. It's a shoulder bag but fits 8x10 holders perfectly...same sort of rectangular shape.
    Not sure how practical it is to have a separate bag just for the holders but it works for me. I can fit 4 or 5 in there - lots of camera bags/backpacks have laptop holders or compartments now.
