Currently everything is kept in an Ikea cabinet with a Hydrosorbent Mini Canister. It's lined with a double thick rubber like shelf liner. Works well for 2 bodies and 7 lenses.
I just sold three camera bags on Evil Bay(2 which I got for free) to buy a Lowepro Sport Flipside. So now I'll have that and two Timbuk 2's, small and Medium Snoops to rummage through to find spare parts. 5 bags was ridiculous. Especially for finding batteries, charged or not.

On my wishlist

Cureently I have a cheap Amazon Basics backpack, which holds:

- Canon EOS 7D
- EF-S 18-135ich
- EF 70-200 mm 2.8 L II IS USM
- EF 50 mm 1.4 USM
- Tamron SP 24-70 mm 2.8
- EF 100 mm 2.8 L IS USM
- Speedlite 580 EXII
- Charger

However, I am considering buying ThinkTank Retrospective 30, which would keep my precious equipment safe :)

Two Lowe Pro Rollers - one large one, a 200, holds a spare body, 5 lenses, an extender, spare batts, seldom used flash, cleaning gear, etc. The smaller of the two is a Lowe Pro Attache 50 roller. It carries a 5D3 body with lens attached, usually the 24-105, one other lens that changes depending on where I'm going or where I was last, a charger, cleaning gear and a couple filters, e.g. polarizer and ND. The Attache 50 is my "walking around bag" and the larger is the storage unit. I take both along on long road trips, but usually only the smaller one on day trips.

With my age and arthritus, I have trouble carrying the weight without some help and these two bags are perfect. When needed, the larger bag also accommodates the pod in a strap-on kind of device that came with the bag. I keep plenty of dessicant packs in both bags. Then there's the shelf in the closet . . .  ;D

I have a cupboard with all my gear in it, the lenses and photo bodies stay in a billingham bag with silica gel, everthing else has it's own case.

I have my T3i and Sigma 18-50 in a billingham hadley which is usually by my side, or in the boot, or close to hand.

Again with silica gel in each compartment.

I did a 10 day float trip through the Grand Canyon 4 years ago which included over 120 rapids, several Class V.  All of my gear (and that of many others) was in Pelican cases.  The float guides and a pro photographer that was on the trip said that Pelican makes the best cases for this type of use.  I'm sure the guides especially know what they are talking about as they see plenty of different cases and bags and knows what works and what fails.  I use 3 different Pelican cases, depending on what size I need. 
5d Mark III, 7d Mark II, 24mm f/1.4L II, 24-105 f/4L IS, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 100 f/2.8L IS macro, 135 f/2L, 3x 600EX-RT, ST-E3-RT, EF 1.4x III

I need to re-shoot this pic at some point, as I've replaced the Peli 1600 with a Storm im2720 (deep enough to hold the 600mm f/4L IS II), replaced the Primus AW backpack with a Flipside 300, added a Lens Trekker Pro 600 AW II, RRS tripod bags, and a few more S&F accessories.

Done...



Also, here's what my lens storage looks like (the 24-105L is not pictured, it's typically stored on the 1D X in the im2075 case).

I don't quite know what to say.

I have a Pelican 1560 when my camera is being stored (not used in 3 or 4 days).  Then I have a Tamrac 606 and Tamrac Adventure 7, both of which I have outgrown and need to replace.  the adventure 7 is on ebay as we speak!    Does anyone have experience with the Tamrac Aero 85?  I've been searching for an everyday  back pack that I can take my 5d3 and 17-40l, 24-105l and 100-400l in and think that the Aero 85 may be a good choice.   

And then

I aslo need a backapack similar in size to the Aero 85,  I'd contemplate remvoing all padded dividers and putting a small pelican case and beta shells in it for when I go mountain biking.  I like the crush-proofness of the pelican cases.  if they can be thrown out of helicopters they can probably withstand a mountain bike fall.  Although if I land on the case that may not be fun!  What does everyone think of the Beta shells?

I use a Thinktank Airport Accelerator backpack.  It holds what I have currently, which makes it easy for me to move all my gear from one place to another.  In the Thinktank are these items: a T3i with a  24mm f/1.4L II attached; a 5D Mark III with a 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II attached, including the hood; a 50mm f/1.2L; a 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS; hoods for the aforementioned lenses; and numerous accessories.  The backpack will also hold a laptop computer.  I carry tripods separately in an army duffel bag.  The bag sits fully packed on top of a bin in a closet, ready to go at a moment's notice.  The Airport Accelerator  is not a bad option for those with a smaller amount of gear.
