Looking at the huge selections of camera bags, I'm lost in trying to chose an appropriate bag for a trip to Hawaii. I will have a 5D2 body, a wide zoom, a prime, and probably a telephoto. I'm afraid that there will be some rains on my hikes/trips. And I only have a Crumpler 5MDH at my disposal.
Can anyone suggest a nice travel bag that is also weather-sealed somewhat?

Not sure but it isn't good to carry your camera around in a bag or backpack while hiking as it is hard to get it out if you want to take a picture. When I go hiking, I use my Cotton Carrier or Capture Camera Clip System on my Camelbak. I store an extra lens in my Camelbak along with all my snacks and 3 liters of water. It doesn't really downpour that much if ever only an occasional sprinkle.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Well I can't speak from experience on the 5MDH, but I own the 7MDH and can't say enough GREAT things about it. I love it!

I however also own the Thinktank Streetwalker HardDrive as well for when I want to take ALL of my gear, and again it is fantabulous! :lol::cool:

Kata access 18, it worked well on the plane, stores a ton, or the h16, both very good hip bags, both come with raincoats.

I have a Flipside 200 that I used to carry a camera body, 50mm, 70-200mm and 24-70mm (attached) while in Jamaica a few years back. I carried it while climbing the Dunn's River Falls. My equipment was perfectly fine. You can also go with the Lowepro mini trekker (AW??). If it's just a body with an attached lens and 2 additional lenses, there are plenty All-Weather models that you can choose from on lowepro.com. Gluck!

OK, so what would be better for hiking trips: backpack or a messenger-type bag (i.e. Crumpler 5MDH)?

if you're going hiking here, definitely the backpack. Though I have taken my Tamrac 9x on many hikes up Diamond Head with the same type of gear -- though the more intense hikes will probably err towards the backpack (use the Kata 466i myself) because of the better weight distribution (especially with a waist cinch). Messenger bags kinda knife into the shoulder and get annoying knocking your legs/body when hiking -- there are a few hikes you shouldn't have something unbalanced swinging around your center of gravity.

I hope you went to Amazon. They have a discount they're running till the end of the month iirc plus Kata has a $15 rebate on the 467i
