You aren't going to find one purpose built for Cambo or other smaller technical / field view camera. So your options are to find a bag you like, and an adaptable insert that fits in the bag. There's always the Pelican hard shell cases with pluck-out foam inserts. Backpacks - find one you like (harness that fits you) that has a U-zip back access, and put a big insert from f-stop or other manufacturer in the pack. A large fanny pack (Mountainsmith) might do the trick if you transporting gear with lens off. IF you need highly waterproof, a premium dry duffel bag might do - this manufacturer also has padded inserts with adjustable/removable velcro dividers for cameras: http://www.drybags.com/product/FGW-OCO.html

Someone used to make a view camera backpack based on a Granite Gear frame, but he retired a while back.

The larger slope and pro f-stop gear inserts will hold it.  I've travelled with a cambo wrs before with the sensor and a lens attached.  Their largest might hold 4 lenses...not sure.  I would take a look at their specs and see.  That insert can fit in most of their bags,  and maybe other bags too.

Renaissance Photo Tech was the name of the company making the LF bag. This was a tiny company selling LF accessories, owned by a LF amateur photographer / retiree Bruce Laughton, who finally retired from his retirement job, presumably to take more 4 x 5 photos.

My current solutions are f/stop ICUs inside ordinary women's version packs (the shoulder straps are shaped and positioned slightly differently) with panel opening and with harness adjustable to 15" torso length. 55L Osprey Ariel XS/S , 38 L Gregory Jade S.
Find the insert that works for you, then take the insert to your local outdoors shop (REI or whatever), see if you can find a pack you like, get it fitted by the salesperson, try it on for half an hour around the store with either full contents of your kit, or the equivalent weight (no insert) of store sand bags.
