What bag has slightly more internal space than a Lowepro Flipside 400 but is the same bag style (opens from inside).

I'm thinking I may have to sacrifice the opening from the inside to get what I want. I'd like everything in my signature + a 16-35 II to fit in the bag.
Pro Trekker 400 AW / 600 AW anyone?

Currently, everything in my list (excluding a 16-35) fits...but its jam packed, and I am required to carry the lens hoods for the 24-70 and 70-200 in the pocket in front.

I have the flipside 400. When the gear gets jammed I will put my Thinktank modular belt on. This way I can comfortably hold lenses/flash and even a body on the belt if I have to.
I purchased the complete kit and then a belt. This way I can even keep the belt on and strategically choose what lenses I can have on the belt. At location you can use the belt to quickly access lenses on your waist. The Flipside gets lighter and you can put hoods inside the bag to lighten up the load.
Something to consider. I really like the flexibility of Thinktanks modular belts system.

What kind of bag are you wanting? Do you need something you can carry for 6 hours? Something you can fly with? Something to carry your stuff from the house to the car? Your intended use will probably have a lot of effect on the recommendations you'll get.

^I have a flight case already.
I need a case that will allow me to carry everything around the city while maintaining comfort (the adjustable back rest on the Pro Trekker looks cool).
I'm not worried about "quick" access to the gear as long as it's all secure, and on me.

Most of the Crumpler backpacks open in the same way as the flipside. There are three sizes, Keystone (http://www.ebags.com/crumpler/the_keystone/product_detail/index.cfm?modelid=116039), Whickey & Cox (http://www.ebags.com/crumpler/the_whickey_and_cox/product_detail/index.cfm?modelid=117018) and Karachi Outpost (http://www.ebags.com/crumpler/the_karachi_outpost/product_detail/index.cfm?modelid=116038).

Not a big fan of Crumpler stuff...I'm gonna go exchange my Flipside for the Pro Trekker today and give that a shot!

Grabbed the Vertex 200AW. Looks like this bag may be the one for me!
