My primary use for this bag is to keep camera bodies and glass in it while at home becasue I live in the humid tropics and have no airconditioning I spend a lot of time on my boat or else close to the ocean and saltspray which oud easily lead to corrosion, so the gear will be relaively "safe" while in the sipped pod. However, once the gear is in there, it tends to stay there for a while.
I wish there was a "faster" bag this size, one that woudl be less complicated, yet waterproof.
My "dreambag" would be if you could take the layout and lack of heavy padding of the Moose Petersen MP3 and make it out of the vinyl pod material and watertight zippers of the Lowepro Dryzone. If you coudl coupe this with removable shoulderstarps which you could either snap on "backpack style" or cross to wear across you chest... And no clumsy snagging armsrest style hipbelt please....
I can dream...

Thanks I got the dryzone. Looks large and well made. I'll be totin a d300/tripod/ multiple lenses down the colorado river through the grand canyon in june, for 6 days. I cant wait. its my second time,last being 12 years ago with a film point and shoot. It should be amazing
how about trying those sealine baja bags with the rolling top. you can buy some inserts like the crumpler photo buckets, domke inserts, or even use thinktank pouches to hold your lenses/equipment.
i use a 25L baja bag with the a small crumpler bucket for my sailing trips.
