By a happy coincidence I just found the answer to my question of how to transport my Korona 7x17. While buying Christmas luggage at Costco, I came upon this Ricardo 30" rolling duffel. I bought one for my son and one for myself, and low and behold, everything fits. The rigid lower compartment holds the camera (just. 8x20 users need not apply) and light meter. The upper compartment holds the holders wrapped in the focus cloth. The shoe compartment at one end holds two lenses on boards, and the utility pocket at the other end holds all my accessories, filters, and lens shades. When the main compartment is open, a zipper entry gives access to the upper compartment, without the need to close the main compartment and enter from the top. It has wheels for rolling across parking lots, an extendable handle like all modern wheeled luggage, and the back panel zips down to reveal shoulder straps for backpacking. Ample straps, cinches, and belts keep everything from rattling while boulder hopping. It's waterproof, and made of ballistic nylon. There are padded handles at one side and the top. It is made by Ricardo, the Model is 30" Rolling Duffel, and their item # is 771701. It measures 30"x15"x14" and costs $29.99 at Costco.

Glen thanks for the info and I will visit Cosco today. In reading your entry I went to your website. Your photographs are wonderful! I am just starting to use the large format in 7 x 17.

I notice you do silver contact prints. I'd be interested in your paper and developer choice, if you don't mind.

Thanks again

Pad the HELL out of it an include a ground glass cover. I just got back from Italy, and upon return both handles of my suitcase were ripped off. God knows what happens to luggage in transport. I cannot conceive of consigning my 80 y/o cameras to that kind of inertia.

I was thinking of buying one of these bags but could not find it at Costco on-line or at any other of the sites mentioned in follow-up messages. Does anybody know of an on-line source right now for this bag?

the bag is in Cosco in Vegas for 39.95 but in dark blue only-I havent gotten one yet-it is larger than I thought-in reviewing airline carry on specs I didn't find any that would take the 30" wonder if that would be a problem? I might get one anyway for "hiking around town"
