Every time I buy a bag I take my gear to a good camera store I usually ask if I may bring my gear in, so I won’t be accused of stealing

Then I enlist the help of a good sales person

when I don’t do that I end up with a useless bag

what camera are you using?

what microphone?

My camera is the Sony A7iii and the mic is the microphone is the Rode VideoMic GO.

The problem is the mic is vulnerable to damage when mounted on the camera.

Years ago I had an aluminum briefcase. It came with two foam pads; lid, and bottom. I got to cut out the two for the gear I had. 2 Spotmatic bodies, an assortment of lenses and a rail.

You can do a much better job now. Scanning it digitally. Print what you scan.

Back in Nikon film days I bought a massive leather case that had a base plate with Nikon lens mounts.  Feature was the top of the case was open. I never had any gear issues.  I had to watch the case like a hawk photographing weddings.  It became my storage bag that I left, covered, in my car. I used a lens-changing bag to supplement my needs.

What about a Guru back pack?  They think differently than other pack makers. Butterflly case, for safari use.
