    Great price on this bag. I paid over $200 for the 13" version.

    I was looking hard at that bag (the 13" version) but still unsure if it will be too big for a mirrorless kit, and also am slightly concerned about those bags tipping over when put down (as silly as this may sound to some). If you could share some personal experience with regards to the above, I would appreciate it very much!

    Very tempting, even as a daily work bag with ability to become a full camera bag for weekends.

    The 13" is quite a big bag and is the biggest bag I have. I can easily fit 2 bodies - EM5II and GX85, 4-6 lenses (primes and zooms), spare batteries, spare cards etc. Sometimes, I need 2 bodies and multiple lenses, and compactness is not an issue, so this is the bag I use for such occasions. Generally, the bag is well thought out and well designed. For whatever reason, the bottom is slanted, so the bag does have a tendency to lean forward. If there is enough weight in it, the bag will tip forward. Not sure why they did that because if they had kept the bottom straight, it would not have that tendency. With one camera body, the bag will sit upright, though it will tilt forward 30-45 degrees.

    If you are interested in the 13" version, MassDrop has a drop going on for Peak Designs bags and you can get the 13" at a discount. I posted a link about this yesterday in the deals section.

    The TT Signature 10 might be a better fit for you, and it's not tipsy:

    Thanks, barry - I have my eye on that bag as well, just waiting on another promotion for that model, as the current price is a little too high for me.

    You might check out the official Olympus bag:
    PRO System Camera Bag | Olympus

    It has a flat bottom and it is only $32. Dimensions: 12.2"w x 7.9"h x 7.9"d. This means that lenses can fit in to the bag lying on their side rather than being inserted in at either end. The reviews are quite good. Use the 20% off coupon to cover the $5 shipping charge.
