i've had my incase sling bag for close to a year now and it's perfect and suits my needs very well. comfortable, on the small side but holds everything i can throw at it, multiple handles, and has very easy access.

i would like to add some more bags to round out certain niche areas, but the incase is as close to perfect as i could ask.

i feel for you guys with huge collections and massive lenses, can't be easy finding a suitable bag.

I use:

The pine Retrospective 20 when I'm out for a short countryside walk.

The Billingham Hadley Pro (in summer) or the Ona leather Brooklyn / leather Brixton (this is my latest acquisition so hasn't been used yet) in a more urban environment.

Either the TT streetwalker or Gura backpack when it's a big hike and I'm taking a lot of stuff (including tripod etc).

I hope I don't need any more but I always seem to come up with some sort of justification!

Quizzical_Squirrel, how do you like the leather Brixton and how does it compare to the Billingham Hadley Pro

I have been researching bags for a while and it has come down to one of these two

The Latest is always Greatest right?! I recently got a used Tamrac 787 backpack ($100 vs 440 new). It holds everything I normally need. At least 2 AA Battery Chargers, 4 Type 511 Battery Chargers, and normal stuff. Remotes, All USB Cables I ever need, Flash, whatever is in my Signature. Doesn't look like a Camera Bag as much as it could, and it fits fine. Very casual. The Straps are a 1/3 of the bulk, but do hide away neatly. Nice Handles Top and Side for normal use.

My favorite feature is that you open the main flap and can see almost everything at once. Easy inventory!

I finally found the perfect Domke. After trying he F2 (too big), J3, F3X, and F5XC, I reluctantly ordered the F6.

For my every-day outing needs the Domke F6 has been the best Domke so far! It fits the 5D and some small lenses I'm likely to head out with and provides more protection than he F3 that I thought was going to be perfect.

For other uses where I'm carrying bigger lenses or the 1D, I've standardized on either the Think Tank belt system or the Think Tank Speed Racer

Tamrac expedition 7X. It's not discret or pretty. But the best bag and most perfect for me.

Holds everything I own and still feels good on my back

For one body and four lenses I reckon on an interior dimension of 11" wide, 6" deep and 7" high, or 28x15x18cm. I have a couple of bags this size. I don't use long zooms so don't need much height. But to put a camera+lens on its side rather then lens down I reckon on a depth of 6". A lot of bags like the TT are rather stingy in depth. The Retro 7 is 5" for a width of 12.5". That's not right for me. I mostly use primes or short zooms so want depth not height.

I'm in the UK and have been looking at:
Lowepro Rezo 180 and Nova 190
Domke F-6 Little bit smaller, F-3X
Tamrac System 3
Crumpler 7500 muffin

Any preferences here?

I have the Lowepro Magnum 500AW and it is loaded to the point I have to unload it to even move it. I have 2 more Lowepro models that I can lift up after transferring from the magnum to them.
