I bought a a Lowe pro Rezo 160 a whileback but cant fit my 550d with 70-300 attached in it. I was just about to splash out on yet more overpriced kit and spotted this at £8.99, made up with it and a great bargain if you are in the UK and want a handy day bag. There are 4 types, this the best one IMO.

Label

Lid can be zipped shut and/or clipped down, nice size peak and rim to keep stuff in/out if only clipped shut-liking this

Front stowage

padded dividers- the gap in the middle is all the way to the bottom, in this configuration there are 4 x 50mm lens size sections either size of the main cavity

I reckon I could fit a battery grip on my 550d easily but as I dont own one I cant guarantee it so dont quote me :) Padding is about 8mm top/sides/bottom, the divider padding feels a bit thinner.

Hope some may find this useful

That looks like a slightly bigger version of the bag that came free with my camera. Except mine has 1 divider only, is black inside, and has a buckle instead of a zip.

To be fair, the one that was open in the shop had a very "rigourous" inspection from me (shop assistant looked at me like I was barmy), build quality seems pretty good. The nearest I could find that suited purpose was a Tamrac @ 5 times the price and to be honest that didnt look any better.

Nice find, I find that they run out of the offers so will go look today.
And at that price it maybe a donor to a stealth bag.
Is there anymore room below your lens, I have a 70-200, it's an 1" longer?

My 550d with 70-300 attached is less than the depth of the bag by at least an inch when not extended so you may be ok. Just take your camera along like I did.
