Film Devices rack n bag (work in progress)

Anyone else use the Film Devices Rack n Bag setup? It's extremely expensive, but well made.  I purchased it specifically because I don't like using an enclosed bag on the cart as I prefer access to the connectors. I use a PSC Eurocart that is mostly in pieces right now preparing for a movie, but this will be on the top shelf as a kind of open bag rig.

 

Dual battery distros that can be swapped from cart power to bag power in a few minutes.

 

I'll add more pics as I progress the build.

I recently purchased one.

They are on the pricier side, but the service I received was exceptional.

As I am located in Brisbane, Australia, I really wanted to make sure I got my set up right. 
so far so good.
I am in the process of upgrading bits and pieces and this was part of the evolution.

I may tweak the set up a little, based on how the bag sits when wearing it.

I am yet to purchase the harness, so I may not need to.

The ease of access to mixer I/o is great.

Very happy so far.

I believe you would need to get a kit to change the height to fit.

pretty sure it would be 4 threaded rods and sleeves.

Send them an email.

They were very fast getting back to me and sent proposed drawings of how my set up would work.

Hey Mark, do you have any photos of your setup? I'm thinking about buying one myself but I'm planning on waiting until NAB as they will apparently be releasing some new products.

Can the separators be slided up or down, like if you ever want to stick in the SL2 ?

 

Each shelf can be customized to size at time of order, but I don't think they can be adjusted after the fact.

Here it is on the cart.
