    Sometimes I go hiking, and I want to travel w/1 body with lens attached. Let's so no bigger than the 12-35 or something like that.

    Anyone have any recommendations? I already have a Domke 5xb, so no need for messenger or sling bags. I mean literally something on a belt, so I can hold my dog's lead until we get to a free-roam area. It's just to keep my hands free while I walk.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    I use an older model lowepro Sliplock bag that I currently use when I go hiking, can fit to hiking pack belt strap or my actual belt, I have been tempted to get one of the think tank Digital holsters

    You can put a Domke F-5XA on your belt, though it does come with a gripper strap too. IIRC, it's 2 inches narrower than the F-5XB and will fit one body with lens attached. There's one divider you can re/move. What I don't like about this bag are the two tiny pockets on the outside under the flap. They're not large enough for much of anything, and I'm not sure how secure anything small would be in those pockets. I prefer the style of front pocket on the F-5XB.... But unlike the "B," the "A" is lined on all four inside walls. :smile:

    You could use a boda v3 jr. With the waist strap. It's comfortable even fully loaded and is pretty versatile. You could also get a waist strap for your 5xb.

    Another option is the 151EP holster, made by "Ripoff Holsters". (A strange choice of brand name; I suppose I'm missing a joke?!)

    It's available either with a belt loop or with a belt clip. My EPL2 plus 14-42 kit lens fits snugly; there'e even room for the VF2, although not when it's mounted to the camera.

    I do find it a bit uncomfortable, dragging down on my belt, and now just carry the camera on its strap, slung over my shoulder. That way I can leave the VF2 permanently attached.
