    I'm looking for some stuff to carry around my photo gear when I go traveling this summer. It's either going to rain all day, or be 100+ every day, so I'm looking for something that won't make me hot, but that also has some sort of waterproof covering. I'm looking at the ThinkTank Modular Set, and it looks pretty decent. It's a belt system, every single piece has a seamless rain cover, and it's pretty well built and seems convenient. It's nice that it's not like a backpack, which will make me sweat my ass off, I'm sure. I think I'd go for the Modular Set over the skin set.. the skin set is packable and light, while the modular is protective, and bigger. With the modular pieces I can pack my stuff in my backpack without using an actual camera backpack (I just bought some big fancy travel pack that's pretty fucking nice.. I'd just throw it in there, inside of a drybag), the skin set is cool because I can compact it to really small, portable pieces, but then I'd need to take a camera bag.

    Anyone use it? Like it? The only cons I see are:

    1) The buckle is on the front, which seems weird, it takes up lots of space where I should be able to have a lens thing or an accessory piece.
    2) I'll look like a total douche :hay: But it's worth it to avoid wearing something hot and inconvenient.

    Let me know nignogs I'm bored at work.

    This is the retail for the 6 piece:

    Modular Set (6 pieces): 169
    Belt: 35
    Harness: 35

    This is my price for it:

    Mod Set: 99
    Belt: 19
    Harness: 19

    So not that bad :dunno:
