Who makes the smallest backpack for the z1u ?

Does any know of a very small backpack for the z1u?
Just to fit the z1u and batterys inside.
Thanks Frank

Frank,

I use a LowePro Dry Zone 200. As I travel to some extreme places it is very useful as it is completely waterproof and also floats! THe Z1 just squeezes in with a few batteries and the Century 0.6X Wide angle.

The backpack looks good, review said it is heavy.

One dealer said to use the Kata hb 207 backpack.

I have an FX1 and have been amazingly happy with my petrol bag (PMCK-1)

Its the perfect size and doesnt have anything stupid like HDV or SONY or ROB ME written on the side of it, just looks like you are going for a hike :)

I really cannot recommend this bag enough, its a winner

The Kata Panda fits in the overhead compartment of an airliner and will hold Z1u, filters, matte box, tapes, and a MacBook.
