    Funny story, when i used to work at Photoflex, I saw those bags here and there and sometimes parts of them around the place. Perhaps try giving Photoflex a try they may have one laying around or a suitable replacement?

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Christopher, Believe me- as I said later in my post, I’ve bugged the guys at Photoflex quite a bit about this! Unfortunately, none were to be found. 🙂 They eventually dumbed all their extra stock over to, which is no longer a functioning website. Too bad I didn’t know you back then!

  • STEVE says:

    So glad you were able to get this. It’s amazing how these little things can be almost as exciting as a new lens or camera.

  • Richard says:

    I had mine repaired at about two years ago … the seams had always seemed on the verge of ripping apart, likely very cheap manufacturing,
    and finally gave up in a stumble and fall on a mountaintop, but
    the repair job she did on it was great! I also had her sew a two inch
    belt across the back of the pouch, so the pouch itself was no longer the limiting strength factor, just thw belt (I use it primarily as a waist pack for the camera)

  • Rodney Ninow says:

    GREAT find! I love mine and have had it ever since they came out. I have the side pockets (and the large and medium lens pouches) which really expand the carrying ability of this wonderful bag. Mine has also been repaired by my girlfriend who is pretty good with a sewing machine. She also sewed a belt across the whole back as Richard did on his.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
