Hi there,
For those that use medium format or higher and go on nature hikes, how and what do you take?

I take a Phase One XF IQ3 100 with 6 schneider blue ring lenses. My wife takes another camera with a couple of lenses. I use a fstop tilopa pack. Of course a gitzo tripod and acratech ballhead.

I don't find the setup all that heavy but I was a powerlifter in University.

That's insane Steven, you have one of the best portfolios I've seen. That rainbow over the fall shot is incredible! I feel like my d810 nikon is pathetic compared to that Phase one.

I will bring my full bag with pretty much everything(10 primes) to the location and then may pull out a few lenses to leave in an empty bag in the trunk if I feel the kit could be too heavy to carry. So an abbreviated kit(ie every other focal length) if necessary.
