Peter,

We use the 16x9 case

http://www.16x9inc.com/products/16x9/169-cb1.html

It holds the H1 with the Anton Bauer bracket on the back...Plus the Crosiel Matte box and rods also. Nice bag.

Dear Peter,

I second that. The large 16x9inc bag is very nice.

This, however, is a soft bag, not the same as a Pelican case.

I like the large 19x9inc bag, I am just careful to protect the bag from damage. You just can not drive over it.

It works very well with all of the accessories attached.

Dear Peter,

The Large 16x9inc bag is the only one that I found that would fit the XL H1 with the back bracket and a Chrosziel Mattebox installed.

This bag is made by Petrol. It appears that it is avaiable exclusively as a 16x9inc bag and is not part of the regular Petrol line.

I am very pleased with all of my Petrol bags! They make quality gear.

I have the Kata MCC-2 soft side and it fits fine inside.
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...rder_Case.html

I use a Pelican 1650 hard case most of the time for protection, especially when trucking. But for times when I want the convenience of a soft run-and-gun case that is big enough to keep the camera completely assembled and ready to shoot, I use the Kata. You have to be conscious with a soft-side not to put too much stress on the evf if you're leaving it on the camera when the case leans against you when it's over your shoulder.

Here is a pic of the XL H1 in the case. It comes with 2 dividers, but I only use one to keep some accessories separated. You could use neither and have even more room for the camera with accessories mounted.
