Right now, I have two camera systems, totaling 2 bodies and 9 lenses. I anticipate picking up another 2-3 lenses over the next year or two to fill some holes. I don't really have any place in my house to store all my stuff together where it is easily accessible and reasonably protected. Right now, it all lives on a closet shelf where I worry someone my knock something down. I'm thinking a big bag like a Lowepro Stealth Reporter may be a good solution. Pelican type cases are also good, but a top opening system seems better for ease of access. What other ideas do you all have?

This maybe strange to many but I have an organiser box for my lenses and other stuff. I still have bags but those are for on the go stuff (camera, lenses, etc). Storagewise, I use the organiser box for my lenses (native and adapted) if I don't plan to use them. I was supposed to buy a Stanley Fatmax Pro, like this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/330931128019?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT but I ended up buying a smaller one in my local Aldi. It works for me as I don't worry much where I place them anywhere in the house.

I have a dehumidifying cabinet to protect my gear from the humidity in Malaysia.

@Richella: that's smart. Not an issue for me though; I live in Colorado, home of no humidity.

I realize that this is far from elegant but this works for me quite well. I use a 5 gallon bucket (hardware store type) and a Gama Seal lid http://beprepared.com/gamma-seal-lid-white.html with a few descant bags thrown in. Yes this is ugly but the advantage is that no one ever suspects it is camera gear. In fact when I am vacationing somewhere warm and humid I often leave this setup on a balcony out of the air conditioning so the gear stays at the outside temperature and is ready to go. It is the cheapest safest dry box I have ever owned.
