I'm aware of the LowePro 600, the Kinesis L311 and the Think Tank Glass Taxi. All good, but any others out there that are good as well??

Might be nice to have it long enough to store the lens + camera + hood extended.

I carry my 400/2.8 in a Lightware Z600 which has enough room for a camera mounted to the lens and one in the top zipper compartment.

Jon, I must say, I am quite impressed with your dedication to Domke. Haha.

Not saying that's a bad thing, you were part of the reason I got my F-3X and I love it.

This is the part I'm interested in. There are hundreds of bags that will take the 300 with the hood reversed, but that's not much use because it takes ages to remove the hood cap, remove the hood replace the hood in shooting position and go. With the 600AW I open the bag, remove the camera and shoot - no need for the hood cap.

From what I can tell all of the other recommendations don't accommodate the lens ready for shooting.

Before i got the Lowepro 600, i carried it around in the Tamrac Expedition 8. i switch depending on how much gear i hump along.

Im slightly favoured towards the Tamrac, because its a little less bulky.
