The accessories? Like you, I dumped my laptop and junk out of my Lowe Alpine shoulder bag and filled it with holders, darkcloth, changing bag etc.
Strangely coincidentally, I bought a very high quality laptop "bag" at a neighborhood yard sale and found it quite handy for field trips. Makes one wonder what happened to the laptop?
