Transporting assembled D500 Nikon, AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR and Nikon 1.4 teleconverter in the field
I am looking for a non-backpack means for transporting equipment when out in the field.

The equipment list is:
D500 Nikon
AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR and a
Nikon 1.4 teleconverter.

The method to transport the above equipment when flying and traveling to the trail head or base camp is resolved.

A means to carry (hands free) the above listed equipment assembled and be quickly ready to use when traveling out of Base camp is problematic. I want to protect the equipment against usual e.g., impact, rain, dust, etc..

My current idea for transporting this equipment is some type of chest pack because I want want the ability to transport a tripod, snacks, water, jacket and other stuff in a hands free manner — which I think I have figured out using a backpack.

All ideas and leads to manufacture specific product lines are welcomed, especially if you have personal experience and comments relative to the advantages and disadvantages.

Thank you for your input.

Fox Squirrel (Sciurus niger)
This was easily the largest Fox Squirrel I have ever seen.

Fox Squirrel (Sciurus niger)
W. Kentucky, USA - 9/21/2018
1/100 sec - f/8.0 - ISO 250

Interesting Tidbit: Fox squirrel possesses flexible joints of ankles which help
them to turn their feet at 180 degrees. This characteristic helps them while
moving down from large trees. Fox squirrels have the largest number of
population among all other tree squirrel species residing in North America.

Back lit at the seaside.
Because of inaccessible rocks (at least with my dodgy legs) on both sides of this beach, it is only possible to get 'proper' shots after mid afternoon, unless it is cloudy. I took these in the morning & ended up with some fun silhouettes (something different anyway). Downloading is recommended.

Maine Coastline
A few pictures from a recent visit to the Maine coastline. Nikon D750. I've traveled a good part of the world and still think that Maine is one of the most scenic places I've visited.

Alpine Lake Stars
Well .., we stopped over at Ebbetts Pass in the middle of nowhere ..,while on the way to Yosemite.., My brother and I set up the tent .. firewood ..,..,and waited til dark .. I set up the camera in the middle of the pine trees .. took a few shots and was amazed at the number of stars ... the first shot is of the moon rising between the pine trees .. the second shot was looking upward ...

Later as the fire at the campsight .., the red glow from the fire reflected against the pine trees ... while the shot is over exposed and the stars moved making the blurry .. you get the idea of the look out in the middle of nowhere at 7,200 in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range ....

I’m back from Yosemite .., hold up in San Francisco .. I return Monday for 4 more nites in Yosemite with dare I say a bigger tent...

And Yes .., I hiked up to Artists Point with a Federal Ranger off duty who stood by while I shot and escorted me down with my Tripod and equipment way after dark ... those shots are going to be posted later ...sad the falls had stopped running ...

I have a gillion Shots to sort through and edit after this trip ...and I will post .. later ..
