Sounds like the F1x would do well, but with a different layout than you're used to. I use mine with the 720-230 3-compartment insert and keep the 70-200 in the back right corner; a 12-24 in the middle compartment and the 5d3/24-70 in the back left compartment. The end pockets nicely take up to a 600EX (in Canon's pouch) with OC-S3 cord and RRS WPF flash bracket in each. Then the 7D on edge with the 100-400 mounted (and resting on a couple of boxes of batteries - both LP-E6s and AA cells); if your body is gripped, there's room for the grip at the end of the 730-230. And the front pockets, lid zip pocket, back pocket and mesh pockets all help organize small stuff. For that matter, with Tiffen's move to using movable dividers in their inserts, you could probably use the stock insert to hold the lenses and keep the body with 24-70 in the remaining space; the flash in an outside pocket still. Won't hold most laptops, but a tablet would fit in the back zip pocket.

Thanks for the info. The hardest part is that the camera store selection is very limited around here. I think the closest one is over an hour a way. Well, there is another closer but they don't carry much, are over priced, and focus mainly on printing. Trying to pick a bag from internet reviews and pictures sucks. I found the first one I was talking about carries Domke, so I may go check them out.

The 7MDH is also my primary carry, normally with my 6D and either the 70-200 or 16-35 attached in the center (sometimes gripped) and the 100L in the back right. Sometimes I'll carry all three (with the third in the front left), but that gets heavy on one shoulder. Also in the bag is a 600EX-RT in the back left. A Giottos blaster and sometimes the 40mm Pancake in the front right and at least one extra battery in the center back. Shutter release in the flap pocket and assorted small items in the front pocket.

I find this setup ideal and do not long for any other bag. I do not find the padding to be inadequate at all, on the bottom or inside. Inside the little flip up padded tabs seem to isolate most everything. I think if you'd center the middle compartment for your body with long lens (or UWA) attached you will learn to love this bag as I have. I love my Crumpler products. Quality made stuff and very user friendly.

Don't get me wrong, I do like my 7MDH. The padding I found a problem with though was on the bottom of the bag itself and with the lenses pointed down, it feels like they sit down hard. Maybe because it's probably almost 7 years old. I also have the MK I which has very limited extra storage. The front pocket and the inside lid pocket are it and the mesh isn't ideal. I had a vivitar sync cable scratch a nice gouge in to my 5D MKII in the first week of owning it because the point came through the mesh.

Plus my girlfriend calls me a bag whore. I think she may have a point when it comes to camera and laptop/school bags. "D


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

I really like my Domke F-1X. It holds a lot of gear... far more than one would think, based on its dimensions. Thanks to Jon, I have mine set up in a similar fashion. I can't fit everything I own into it.... but I don't want to carry around everything I own either. ;)

I picked up the double F-7 a while back when it was on sale for a song.... I don't like it as well. I sort of wish I would have bit the bullet and bought a second F-1X to keep in my car with a less expensive kit setup.

The F-7 isn't a bad bag, but I pretty much only use it if I'm going out with multiple long lenses, or if the 300 f/4 is among my needs for the day (it'll fit vertically in the F7, not in the F1 or F2). Since it's not as long as the F1, you're a bit more limited in what you can carry; shorter lenses will need to be stacked.

I have this bag, in that shade of green, too.

IMAGE: https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8601/15973530107_9cd0d729f6_z.jpg

Kit shown in the picture:
-50D with mounted 28-135 and reversed hood
-Canon 18-55mm IS (lower right)
-Yongnuo 568ex II in its case (directly below 50D)
-Rebel XT body

In the interior lid mesh pockets not shown are a small selection of CF cards for my 50D (have yet to purchase SD cards for my Rebel- that camera and the 18-55mm were given to me over Thanksgiving with no memory card present); 50D and XT chargers; USB cables for both; a few other odds and ends.

I like the bag over all, seems reasonably well made and is comfortable, but I don't have anything to compare it to as my only prior experience with camera bags were shoulder bags. I think I prefer the backpack experience over all. Paid $80 for it when I got it 4 years ago (seeing now they're just under $40). The only thing I'm concerned about is there's little padding around the outer walls, but the padding that divides the compartments seems reasonable. I'm going to purchase a Lowepro 20L in blue when I get Sigma's 150-600mm Contemporary once it's out and I can afford it. For now, the above picture is my current bag set up.

You mention the outside wall padding. Is it firmer/stronger than the interior compartment padding or about the same? Looking for something like this that I can take some of the inside sections out to store clothing/other accessories along with the camera on top.

I use a this bag (Incase Pro Pack: https://www.goincase.c​om ...ags/incase-dslr-pro-pack/external link) with the same purpose you are stating. It is roomy and super comfy.

I've had my eye on this bag. Do you think a 5dm3 with attached 24-105 would fit in the padded insert? I have the Lowepro Passport Sling (very similar to this), but my camera is too big for the insert!

I bought a photo insert to use with my Kånken backpack. "Everyone" has these backpacks here, so it's very discrete.
