Hi, I am looking for a large bag with dividers, but not having much luck yet. I usually go on nightly drives looking for things to photograph. It seems like there's usually something I forget at home. So, I would like 1 bag to haul most of the items I might use on a given night. It would have to be large enough to hold a gripped 5d2 with 24-70 lens, a 16-35 lens, a 100mm macro lens AND a gripped 7d2 with teleconverter and 100-400ii lens. Oh, and an external flash! Ha, I'm starting to think I might have to settle for 2 bags!

Rolling or backpack?

For rolling look at think tank. They have several bags that will fit that and much much more (their production manager bags are HUGE!!)

For backpack I'd check out to Clik elite Pro elite. It will be big enough to fit all of that. You can also look at the pro express but I don't know if it would it all that gear (I only own the pro elite)

Thank you, I was thinking something like a duffel bag with dividers. Just something to keep my gear in and haul it to and from the car when I go for my drives.

You might look at the Think Tank Airport Accelerator. It is a BIG backpack style bag.

The Lowepro Vertex 300 AW is a big bag that holds a ton. Not currently stocked at a lot of places because its older, but I think you can still find them.

There should be plenty of bags that can accommodate that gear. I'm personally a fan of the Gura Gear Bataflae bags (now sold as Tamrac G-Elite after GG bought the Tamrac brand).

I have the Bataflae 32 and am pretty sure I could get almost all of that onto one side and still have room for my 600mm on the other, you would probably be ok with the 26 liter version (maybe even the 18?). One nice thing is that you can use the bag as a backpack, or stow the straps and just lay the bag in the back seat of your car and work out of it that way. You can access either side independently, or open the whole thing up for access to the entire bag.

There are still some good closeout deals on the Gura Gear branded version out there: https://www.outdoorpho​togear.com/gura-gear/ (external link)

This is one possible layout of my Bataflae 32, just to show what will fit. Another nice thing is that these bags come with a ton of dividers, this layout doesn't even use half of them.

OP wants a duffel bag style with dividers
DUFFEL BAG with DIVIDERS = SHOULDER BAG. NOT BACKPACK.

OP originally asked about large bags, then added later "thinking something like a duffel bag" and "something to keep my gear in and haul it to and from the car". For those of us capable of reading between the lines, it seems the OP isn't entirely set on what they want or aware of what options are out there. It appears that the main criteria is a bag you can work out of while driving around in a vehicle, people have suggested bags that meet that criteria. For example, the GG bag I suggested was specifically designed for carrying and having easy access to gear while in a vehicle driving around on safari.

BTW, I think I missed your bag suggestion...

Well I guess everyone should be careful what advice they ask for. Some members might "read between the lines" and give inaccurate advice. Pretty much like so many beginning photogs asking about a beginners camera and getting advice to get a 5D Mark 3 which happens here all the time. I guess I'll have to learn how to read between the line. My apologies. ;-)a

i have three of these: http://www.adorama.com ...gy.html?RRref=produ​ctPage (external link)

one carries my camera and lenses, another carries flash/lighting stuff, the third is a catch all for whatever I need that day. Having a shorter handle for carrying by hand and an additional shoulder strap is great and it has more than enough padding.

i think you can get all your gear in there no problem.

I carry: 6D, 70-200 2.8 IS, 85 1.8, sig 35A, Tokina 16-28 2.8, 24-105 f/4, SL1 and a small manual 50mm
