New QRP Portable Bag

As many of us are waiting for our KX3s to arrive, we're doing everything we can to accessorize!  Many folks have been picking up the Lowepro Edit 140 camcorder bags which were first pointed out by Wayne, N6KR, as being a perfect fit for the KX3.  I had been reluctant to get a specific bag before I got my KX3 and had planned to go to the local surplus shop to see if I could find a nice canvas bag for cheap.

As luck would have it though, this weekend I stumbled across the Lowepro Photo Traveler 150.  It is a SLR system camera bag designed to hold a body and several lenses/accessories in a backpack style.  I prefer the backpack since it evenly distributes the weight and I feel I can hike further that way.

Anyhow, it is quite roomy and very adjustable with many dividers and lots of places to attach them.  Here's a quick video I did showcasing the new bag loaded up with a K1.  (sorry for the shaky cam!)
