I thought green would look good with the meter lights also.  I almost went all purple.

Love to see what the purple looks like once you get them on.

I ordered green as well. Really like the way they look with the unit!

Anyone running any of the lowepro bags? What used to be nova 4, nova 5 etc. i was thinking about picking up something thats kind of cheap compared to my big portabrace for summercamp. In the past it has been a dust bowl. I like the lowepro aw models but not sure what the size is of my old nova 5 to correlate it to the new model #'s

Dustin, this is my FAVORITE gear bag of all time, especially for festies, since its a backpack and not a shoulder strap system! Ive had all of those LowePro/Portabrace/etc bags with shoulder straps, and this one is cheaper and easier to carry stuff! I am sooo sick of carrying gear miles at some festies and spots in the cities I tape and my shoulder KILLING ME because of the shitty shoulder strap system IMO!!!! Well, this is the solution! This thing can get HEAVY, and should still be a breeze to carry with your health issues, since its a BACKPACK ;D You can run cables in the top and bottom parts, and there should be plenty of room to run your VMS sideways like I do, and to run your F8 with stubby right angle connectors like you already have ;)

EDIT: I can also EASILY carry ONE mic stand with this, since it has a pullout compartment on one side that holds the leg/s of a mic stand! Then you just strap down that side and you can easily carry a big mic stand+umbrella in the side! This is SOOO badass at shows, since you have your HANDS FREE, since this bag can carry one stand hands free ;D Here's a few pics!

Bean I like the looks of that bag!  Do you have any photos of the bag in action with the gear inside?  Can you run cables inside of the bag from the top to the bottom compartment?

I felt unprepared for festival season. Grabbed a couple naztechs and a set of powerex 2700mH aa's for the f8. Moved the tekkeon i had on the f8 to the schoeps pre. Im in good shape now!

Sure do! And yes, you can run cables from the top>bottom or whatever you want to do! I used to run my gear in the bottom compartment, but now I have everything in the top compartment, and just keep accessories and shit in the bottom part! I'll send you a PM with some pics so I don't highjack this thread ;) You can even take the bottom part out, as in the pics on Amazon, and use the bottom part as a beer/water cooler if you wanted to! I might try that next weekend at my 1st festie of the year! This bag can EASILY hold BOTH of my Schoeps setups with every accessory that I own, in this thing, with ROOM TO SPARE ;)

For realz, its my FAVORITE gear bag of all time! I even have room to put a hoodie INSIDE the bottom part, loaded down with every piece of gear and accessory that I own! And this thing is PADDED down to the MAX! The padding is everywhere and is THICK stuff, so your gear will certainly be safe inside this tank of a bag! And its actually comfortable when wearing it, even under HEAVY loads ;) Anyway, I'll snap some new pics and send you a PM today Dactylus!!!

Shipping from the EU can take 2 or 3 weeks depending on the service the seller paid for.
