    I had a Photax dual reel tank and used a small changing bag with no problems. Bigger bags are better but take up more space.

    How large is the dual reel tank? I'm talking one of the ones that holds 4 35mm reels.

    Ah plastic I see. I believe that tank is a bit smaller, not sure how much. I might just go with the smaller bag and hope for the best...

    The only tip I have about changing bags is to keep them zipped up when not
    in use so that dust doesn't collect inside.

    Unless it is one of the bags that Harrison call 'small' I'd recommend going for a larger bag. If you put a four-reel tank and four reels into a 17x17 bag you won't be left with a lot of room. Apart from the price there aren't any real disadvantages in getting a larger bag, and it's nice to be able to put a box or something inside to lift the bag clear of your hands in hot weather.

    Best,
    Helen
