More vs less

I think I'm following you on IG!

For the types of shows I shoot the most, I would not be able to lug that much gear with me, it would be too obtrusive. Moving around a tight crowd with a backpack leads to... angry fans

For shows with more room, including outdoor shows, I use a Paksafe sling which has much more room (but is, of course, more obtrusive). I'll use a backpack style bag if I have backstage access and know I can put the bag down somewhere safe. I actually have several bags now to accommodate anything from a two lens shoot to a six lens shoot, but the four prime scenario is (for me) the most common.
