    Oh yeah, I only use stuff sacks for actual non-camera-use travel and mostly to prevent theft / misplacement, and always with lenses detached from the body. I wrap the body no lens and that goes into one wrap/SS, I wrap my nifty 50 and core lens in a second wrap/SS, and my telephoto goes into a third wrap/SS.

    Then I clip the 3 stuff sacks to o-rings in whatever bag I'm using for transpo and that's always at the bottom of the bag and/or in a secure place for travel. There's a company that also makes lens caches btw, but using wraps allows me max flexibility including for non-camera gear.

    In this way, there's no risk of my gear falling out because it's only moving in/out of the bag for packing/unpacking, never use. The clips & straps are purely there in the case I fumble grabbing a stuff sack or someone is digging through my bags, neither of which has ever happened.

    When I carry for use, it's never in a wrap, the bag compartment that holds the camera only has the camera, nothing else, and the camera never comes out of the bag unless my hand is strapped to it.

    This is primarily why I use the S25 for my run-and-gun bag: it has lots of other externally available pockets for stuff without opening the main part where my camera is, plus it then quickly converts to carry. For example in Tokyo we'd walk around all day taking pics, then I'd wrap/SS the camera body an lens, put it at the bottom of my bag in a PCSB (on top of a cache), coat on top, groceries and shopping on top and in the front pocket. Or some mix. Been doing it that way for years and love the flexibility. On the flight over I did a similar thing, except used the WF for my camera gear and clothes.

    Great set up for me! but we're all different ... some of the camera people I saw around Tokyo ... holy moly, basically carrying luggage.

    I got the Peak Design small camera insert today and tried mounting it in my Synik 22. It fits, but barely, as you can see in pictures below.

    The camera cube attaches perfectly with gatekeeper clips to the loops for the compression straps. And can be accessed through the clamshell zipper.

    I think this might be a great solution for those with the Synik 30, but alas, I’ll return it as there’s not much extra room in the S22.

Fujifilm repair was needed to fix the damage (despite the Domke wrap).

    The Peak Design Field Pouch solves this problem for me, and it seems like a perfect fit for the “Tom Bihn o-ring philosophy”. Tenba Camera Insert in Synik 30?

    Just my two cents – everyone's needs are different!

    (FWIW I now shoot a Leica M10 with a manual focus 35mm f/2 prime from '83 and feel like it's the last camera I'll ever need, haha)
    The drop is pretty terrifying.

    I've used a simple Apecase (https://amzn.to/2sgyZAB) in lieu of a Tenba insert because I liked the color better. But in the end, found that it was too bulky especially because I tend to travel with just one body and one lens (usually a 35 or 28 prime) rather than having a spare. So now, I just put the rangefinder in a small optech neoprene case and put it on top of my bag. Perhaps I should tether it to something now...good thing the S30 has a lot of tether options inside.

    Nice to see some other Fuji shooters here as well Smilie I'm about to take the plunge and get a Maker's Bag with the thought of using that to carry my X-T2 and a couple of lenses when shooting for the day (along with all of my other stuff - wallet, sunglasses, water bottle...etc). I too have tried many dedicated camera bags over the years and none have really worked well for me - quite frankly most are overkill for my general use and none left enough room for my personal stuff.
