See the link in my signature and then click the RED in the first post!

so disappointing, especially if they're expecting me to give them that much for what is at the end of the day, still just a bag. maybe I'll look at the billinghams you mentioned in your note to them.

Anyone here have a rec for an insert that can accommodate a d700 with the additional bulk of an attached grip?

I really wish I'd read this a few hours ago, because I literally just ordered a Shift Pannier. I wanted the Snoop Messenger until I realized there was no carry handle. I think I need to find an insert for it though because I don't think there's a lot of padding for it.

You can use the Snoop in their Laptop Messenger as well, which does have the handle. I got a custom bag, which isn't on fire sale, but is cool (and custom :))

That would be a better option. I can't justify the custom bag cost, but the Commute 2.0 Messenger with the Snoop looks like it'll work. Too bad I can't cancel the other order. Thanks!

Commute is on 1-day sale today, too. Some are $54! I had to resist mightily...

Had a 7mdh; sold it. The new one is much improved. Customers generally are very loyal.
Had a TT Retro 10 PS bag; didn't like the raincover at all. However, there is a very loyal user base here. Shooter bag (what I want and need; becomes a storage bag with the raincover on. So for me it fails with the raincover on. I will buy a larger Billingham when I can afford it. Going out to buy a lotary ticket now.)
Consider the appropriate sized LowePro Pro Messenger bag for you. It's a good equivalent; I like it better than the retro line.
Have an Urban Disguise 40 that is a delight now that I've changed the strap. Just a personal thing. I hate straps that are slippery, and fall off my shoulder. Need both hands free to work. Consider that the access to your gear is through the top. My bag takes both hands to insert my camera or remove it. Other shooter bags take one...

I use a grip as well; that's the killer for many bags.

Have you considered Domke bags? I have 2 and they're my bag of choice now. If you want to carry your camera+grip with the 70-200/2.8 mounted it will limit your choices. Somewhere here there is talk about doing this with a Domke. My guess is the F2 with a different insert, but I'm not sure...Jon is the expert!

Welcome to the forum.

I just received the snoop messenger earlier this week, its a nice bag!

I really like how the insert can be zippered up when you don't need access to the items; either for keeping whatever out, like dust, water, or an extra bit of security for thieving hands, though most places I go, I'm not too worried about either.

You're welcome. I don't have the Retro anymore. If I were buying today, it would be the LowePro. I like the raincover on the Pro Messenger better; don't like the one on the TT bag at all. But that's just me.
I am a fan of TT bags, but never considered the raincover when I bought.Shame on me.

The Retro line is extremely popular here on the forum. However, the TT bags are horribly expensive in Canada from the local vendor. Retro 10 is $209 Cdn plus 13% tax, out the door.

edit: I played with the two bag lines today. Took my iPad. Frankly I was disappointed with the LowePro bags. (I don't want to carry the iPad in the back pocket. I want the bag to conform to my hip. I don't want the iPad banging against my hip.) I couldn't carry my iPad in the smallest or mid-sized bag. The largest bag is huge! That's the only one, to fit the iPad in the front pocket but the bag is too large for me.
Back to Think Tank. The Retro20 would carry my iPad easily in the front pocket. Down side? I don't like the raincover! Another Think Tank bag, the Urban Disguise V2 would work well too.

Jon's right. Get a vest to carry the iPad.

my name is Dave. I am a bagaholic.

Any of you guys got your mittens on a Lowepro Passport Sling? Will it fit a 1-series body practically? I want to replace my Domke with something practical, urban, and comfortable, that can stash a pro body plus lens and perhaps another lens as well.
