Who wants to guess how much this weighed?

An old friend played a gig last week; - (Gertrude, if you're interested) and as you can see I took me kit along.

I decided to take pretty much everything so how much do you think the kit bag weighed?

1D2n & 20D and grip
24-70 2.8L, 70-200 2.8L IS, 17-40L, and Tokina 10-17 fish
580EX II, 550, 430, STE2, Canon batt pack and 2 Gorillapods
16 spare AAs and spare batts for the bodies
Cleaning kit , 16Gb of cards and misc junk that usually lives in the LowePro Stealth 650.

Now the bag was actually too big for the scales so I had to hold it and subtract my weight. Consequently there'll be a +/- adjustment of 2lbs or so.

Now I hardly used the flashes in the end but it pays to be prepared

Looks to be a tripod, monopod, litre water and lunch shy of what I usually have in my Tamrac when I go hiking!

Hmm funny you should say that. It was nearly as full on Fri AM though I was also sporting my 55pro + 303 pano head

Tell me about it . You can cope with the stuff when driving but public transport is a bit tedious........

My other option is a Crumpler Pyjama Pride rucksack but attaching a monopod and stool is a faff, especially when on the MTB!

Well the scales went over 2 st so I'd guess somewhere round 15Kg.

Markelous; very good
