I'm thinking about a new bag. Not a need, just more of a want for something different. I have a Tamrac Areo Speed Pack 85. It works fine, but was thinking about a shoulder bag. What would fit the same amount of gear and a laptop in a shoulder bag? Any ideas?


Um... Hi

I just ditched my Aero 85, which I loved, because my 70-200 would only fit attached to the body. Got a Kata Bug 255 UltraLight. Probably not what youre looking for but it's such an awesome upgrade from the Aero 85. Just FYI.

I think I'm really looking for a shoulder bag. I use the Tamrac preet much that way now. Like I said, it's not a matter of need, the Tamrac is great for how I use it. Just hoping to get some feedback from some that use shoulder bags.


Um... Hi

Have you looked at the Urban Disguise series. I have the 50 and it's a great bag.

The Urban Disguise bags are really flexible for the space. I just wish they came in something other than ballistic black.

I've been loving my Timbuk2 Snoop bag a lot, too. You can see my pix etc. at my blog (link below)

I agree. The black is boring, but they all match so it's nice. My new favorite bag is the Epiphanie Paris bag, which fits a small laptop and has the same size interior as my Domke F-802, but is for ladies and has a pink lining. I use it when I am not shooting as a pro. For all pro work I carry the UD50 and the Domke bags.

Consider the Think Tank Retro PS series? Messenger bag with different cloth.
If that's close but not the real thing, consider the LowePro Pro Messenger series.

Looking for something older/cheaper? LowePro Classified bag comes in "sepia" colour. I bought a black bag recently, and it was a real bargain. If I were working as a pro still it would suit me better; camera out/bag as a lens changer. Reason--It takes 2 hands to remove or fit my camera plus grip in the bag.
When I use it (to carry camera/iPad too) I wonder why I didn't just bring my Domke. It's so much easier to work with my F3X or F2.

Sime hasn't posted here for a while about TT bags. Don't think he liked me posting about the raincover on the Retro bags.
But I wanted to let other potential buyers know that I found it so hard to put it on with bad weather pending. Then it didn't rain for a while (Atlantic storm--it looked just a little ways away.) I lost so many photos walking in to town from our hotel. And the Retro 10 is a heavy bag; I was only carrying my dslr with an 18-200 lens mounted. So I left the bag behind the next day, and slung the camera over my shoulder. My goretex shell coat saved my camera when I fell the next day, doing the same walk. Saved my camera, but I really didn't like having a bag unless I could shoot out of until a storm broke, and provide some protection for my gear. (Felt really old! I'm now 65...don't need reminders.) That's why I bought the billingham Digital. Such a sweet little bag!
I would like a larger Billingham, And I should just take the grip off my camera and get a Hadley Pro. Great shooter's bag! (Howard has been telling me that for a while, and I appreciate it. Howard, I have no pension and have Freedom 85--I'll be working until then, unless I win the lottery! )
When I looked at the Pro Messenger, I couldn't figure out how I would carry my iPad if I bought the smallest bag the rest of my gear would fit in...and I didn't want to shell out what it would cost to buy larger. Beautiful bag. I like it better than the TTRetro PS I had.

The TT UD looks good, I have also found a Crumpler 8MDH near me on clearance for 129. I wish I didn't have to drive 2 hours to get a hands on with the think Tank.
