    And from what I hear he's so seriously backed up and busy due to overall demand of his cases some economists would argue he charges too little!

    No matter how good Luigi is, these prices are absurd. I paid far less for my Rollei originals which are solid (it is worth checking that), and otherwise, a local leather repair service may be all you need for a fraction of the price.

    That said, I tend to keep mine in a Retrospective 20 bag: one B&W, one colour, meter in between. A case is not really necessary then.
    How do you carry film with that then? I have an older Tenba bag that fits both my 2.8E's, my meter, and several pro-packs of film. I'd like something that is slimmer, though, as the Tenba has a bit of a belly.

    I like carrying everything in a camera bag over my shoulder. Putting the Rollei in a case would require I get a larger camera bag.
