PortaBrace makes one for the XL1 that will hold it with the VF attached. It's a great case, but not much of a backpack, as far as backpacks go.

I use the Lowepro Photo Trekker Classic, it fits the whole lot, lock stock and barrel. Even has room for a minimal 35mm still outfit. It's an older design but still popular and very reasonably priced.
