    Bryan (Movi Whisperer) and I are trying out the Peak Designs Sling 10L to see how well that works. I'd rather like to keep my old iPhone 6s and the counterweights all assembled for more run'n-gun style shooting -- also a shoulder strap is a necessity for me.

    The Sling 10L I got today had a "wardrobe malfunction" -- the main zipper would stick when it was about three inches open and then require a longitudinal force of about 20 lbs or more to move it further open or closed. Not exactly what you need for a run'n'gun zipper.

    The Hadley bags are available in the USA. https://www.amazon.com/Billingham-Hadley-Camera-Shoulder-Leather/dp/B000L8CNAG
    Quite expensive (almost the price of the Movi!) -- but prior experience says, as Frank says, that they are top notch quality. I think I'll stroll down our our local pro photo supply place (conveniently called Pro Photo Supply) and see what they have available.

    Hey Andy - I have a PD Sling 10L and I tried it out today and it is perfect. Maybe just get a replacement. Here are a couple of pics how I configured mine. Bryan or Andy please show how you set it up on your end. I placed the Movi handle up on one end and I used only 1 divider. On the divider side I have my Rode videomicro, Shure Motiv, DXO One, & Moment 2 lens case and there’s still enough room to put more, like an anamorphic lens :). I put the counterweights in the top zipper. The Movi has the counterweight holder and hoodie + the cold shoe mount attached.

    I've been pretty impressed with their quality, and agree that Andy got super unlucky!

    We have a 5L at the office, and set it up the same way, handle up for quick deployment, but less room for accessories!

    Now that you have used this bag for a few months, what’s your take on it. I ordered the bag with the MCR, CW, and Hood to use with Moment lenses and have been looking for in-depth review. Really wondering if the size is too small and if I should return and get the 10L.

    Still enjoying it, and I bought my own. Just got back from a 5-day trip and it kept everything Movi related in one bag (Movi, Moment lenses in their dual lens case, Moment case for my 6S, Counterweight (set up for Wide Lens), Hoodie and 4 extra batteries.

    I want more of their bags, in general. Possibly the 10L, if I want to be able to carry more than just Movi gear in it. But for now, it's great even to just stuff the whole kit into a larger messenger bag and quickly deploy the smaller bag.
