Thanks for your reply and yea it could be an option as i do shoot motocross every few weeks with my 7dmkii with battery grip so i recon i will be needing bigger pockets for more batterys as i average 2000 or more shots on these occasions and still have to swap my batteries at least once.

Even if a grip arrives, a battery grip would prove problematic. Why? Well the size of the camera compared to two batteries end to end. Add room for connectors and the width of the camera is too narrow. So unless the grip was a dedicated battery in itself with carefully laid out cells, it would not provide increased battery life.
