Searching for bag for camera, rails, adapter

As I wait for my Blade to arrive, the next mission is to figure out how to move it around. In best case scenario, I'd like to keep the rails and adapter assembled and be able to drop the camera onto it. And I'd like to be able to get the whole thing into one bag!

Does anyone know of a bag/knapsack that will accommodate an EX-1 with rails and an adapter?

I know there are Pelican and Storm cases designed for this. The one Zacuto sells is lovely but, having rented one, I know it's too bloody big to haul where I need to go with it.

Thank you
Bob

I'm currently using Thinktankphoto backpacks for my EncoreM2 rig and an EX-1. Rails are the real problem, I'm thinking of making a sleeve just for them. I've been trying to persuade Thinktank to tailor one of their bags for our needs.

Thanks Dan. I have one of Think Tanks backpacks and the camera by itself fits comfortably in the bag but--although I don't have my adapter yet--I can tell that adding rails is going to make it too long.

I could set up the rails and adapter and put it alongside the camera, but that effectively eliminates the space where I put the batteries and other primariy accessories.
