    Right between the headlights.

    The earlier mention of bicycle seats has me interested, though... I'd have to check, but maybe the slip-on gel seat covers would fit various camera models well enough...

The camera and lenses were a neat fit in the pockets, so to allow the items to be removed and replaced easily I lines the pockets by gluing in some satin cloth.
    That combo survived several years of use for a Canon 35mm manual-focus camera and accessories.
    More extensive padding than I do, but I agree, I would think some location between the axles is better. At least that was the theory I've operated under.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Yep, that's what I had in mind, couldn't remember bicycle seat though. The pad looks like it's got a drawstring too. Made for cameras. Get some wholesale call it camera pocket and triple the price. You'll be rich in no time.
    Keep on gellin'
