    Add 1 photo vest or belt system ( like the Think Tank personally), dump the 50 and take a 300 or 400 f2.8 on the pod. Your going to get noticed so you might as well take a lens that will let you get shots from a nice distance. :mrgreen:

    Nope I KNOW!!! and KmH didn't have either on his list. :lol::lol::lol:
    Being a sports shooter, there are times on the sidelines of an NCAA game I have both on because I'm carrying about that much stuff. Not the same stuff, but that much stuff. :mrgreen:

    If it was me, I would cut the weight and drop the breath mints off the list. :lmao:
