Hey everyone,

As I slowly expand my lens collection, I'm starting to run into a logistical issue on trips. I have a Mindshift Rotation 180 Trail, which is a 16L bag. A bit small, but that rotation thing is amazing since I'm a big cyclist, so it's easy to quickly pull out the camera. It's also great for traveling in general. Here's a stock photo, I don't have one of my bag in particular.

The issue is that the camera section at the bottom really only holds a body with a lens and 2 spare lenses (in the small size lenses I use anyway), and I'd like to carry a couple small specialty lenses in a separate lens holder in the main compartment for whenever needed. Right now my planned quick-access setup will be GX9 with 15mm 1.7 attached and 25mm 1.4 and 35-100 4-5.6, and an Oly 45 1.8 and 60mm macro in the main compartment. Does anyone have a suggestion for a 2 or 3 lens organizer that wouldn't be huge on these small lenses and fit in this fairly small setup? It seems like most of the stuff from Thinktank is pretty big, and I'd rather have one 2-3 lens organizer than 3 separate ones floating around. Thanks!

Tenba BYOB7 fits 3 small lenses, I use it for my GM5 or Pen-F and PL15, P12-32 and P35-100. Without the body there will be room to spare vertically.
Thanks! This model is a little pricier than the Ape Case, so I'll check the Ape out first, but this one seems ideal for putting the camera into my daily use bag which would be ideal for when I'm not traveling/cycling.

That is what I use it for, my daily carry bag for my smaller camera, it stays in my daily carry backpack all the time.
