Now, that’s a lot of stuff, you’re going to be walking for a long time, and it’s going to be heavy—not to mention that what you’re carrying is worth a lot of your hard-earned money. However, the run-of-the mill backpack that you take to work or class is definitely not going to cut

I don't know what it is like in your home, but the person I live with only temporarily tolerates my photographic filth. I have issues with putting my camera bag away in a closet—that seems sacrilegious—so it stays out most of the time, but when lenses, lens hoods, tripods, lens caps, memory cards, nodal rails, macro rails, dust blowers, and adapters end up strewn across the place, there is the potential for Marie Kondo-like interventions.
