    I thought some others might find this useful. I have been using the Mountainsmith Kit Cube insert to carry my OMD-EM5 with a few lenses. It can even fit OMD with handgrip and 75mm without an issue.

    I really dig that it can let you use your existing nice packs and keep your camera gear protected and undercover.

    Thanks for sharing, boulderjoe! I am also leaning of getting this to use with my Osprey Warp. Although the unit you feature is the older version, it is almost half the price of the newer one.

    Thanks again!

    Very nice insert. I saw on the Mountainsmith website that they also offer a mico version. Were you able to compare the two versions before buying? In case yes, why did you go for the regular sized one? Is the micro to small?

    Hey Quatchi - They did not sell the mini at the time I purchased mine. That being said, I think the size is very nice if you like to carry a few lenses or if you use the HLD-6 handgrip.

    Cheers!

    Yup, got one too. Very handy to use with the closet full of messenger bags and backpacks that I have.
