Petrol PCCB-2-N Bag With A Z1?

anyone ever use the Petrol PCCB-2-N with the Z1? it looks like it might be a nice fit, but just wondering if anyone had tried it (it's not listed as a suggestedd camera, but i think one of the pictures on the petrol website shows a Z1 in there). i've had petrol products in the past, and i really like them. if anyone has use one of these with a Z1, let me know what you think:

It is advertised as accommodating the Z1 and is similar to the PWB-HDV. A lot of space for accessories. I prefer the PCPR-1 HDV which will take the Z1 with Chroziel matte-box installed (although I do remove the adjustment knob for the french flag). Less room for accessories, but it still has room for spare batteries, tapes, charger, Sony lens hood, filters, microphone, cables, Edirol R-09, Sennheiser folding earphones, notebook and lens cleaning stuff with room to spare. Obviously you have to explore your best packing arrangement (no instructions provided). Douglas Spotted Eagle wrote a review (some time back): http://www.sundancemediagroup.com/ar..._camporter.htm

This is my bag of choice for my Z1 Jon. It's so good to have one pull of the double zip expose everything contained therein, and the silly 'official' bag Sony sell for the FX1/Z1 is festooned with side and end pockets such that you spend an age sorting and sifting through each pocket looking for that mic / tape / battery.

Go for the 2N, I'm sure (like me) you'll be delighted. It's a good bit cheaper than much of the competition, yet is strong, has a good handle clasp that will stop kids at events getting to look inside and has partitioning that you can play around with to keep your kit snug.

Designed in Israel and made in China and exported thousands of miles. The plane that brings these bags into the country must be full of air.
