I'm looking for a bag that will hold the following while looking good (leather would be nice).

60D
18-135mm
50mm 1.8
8mm Sigma Fisheye
Some accesories
My 12" Lenovo X200s notebook and small charger

Right now I have a small sling that can hold everything but the notebook, but I got this notebook to go mobile so now I need a smaller bag than my quite large notebook bag and a larger bag than my current sling.

What price range? That matters. Also, do you want a shoulder bag or a back pack?

I'd probably want a shoulder bag, it shouldn't be able to carry a LOT of equipment (i.e. backpack required).

Price limit is probably $200.

You don't want a leather bag. Too heavy and too expensive.

If you are looking for a shoulder bag, check out the Tenba Messenger.

http://www.tenba.com …p-Bag.aspx#specification​s (external link)

It comes in 3 sizes and 6 colors. The Mini or the Small will hold all the gear you mentioned plus your laptop. I use the Mini size (smallest) to carry my 7D+lens, extra lens and a flash, plus an iPad or 11 inch MacBook Air. I've recently started using their products and am impressed with the quality and thoughtful design.

Masculine, even to a degree of metro. The ONAs look good. I don't like the look of billingham at all. Some photos can make some of the models look ok, but in person those look as bad as the others do in the photos.

How about getting a bag you like and putting a camera insert in it?

Lowepro just came out with this series

http://www.amazon.com …TF8&qid=1333378​018&sr=8-1 (external link)

It's only in grey right now. But for $69.00, it ain't bad.

This is the one I bought

http://www.amazon.com …TF8&qid=1333378​104&sr=1-3 (external link)

It's the UD 50, but it is pretty big. It fits a 15.6 inch laptop, but it's very comfy to carry.

I also bought this one

http://www.amazon.com …TF8&qid=1333378​174&sr=1-3 (external link)

They all have their benefits, but the Tenba is probably perfect for what you need it for.

Thanks Suzie, those all look good and are quite affordable! I'm not crazy about the look of the Tenba, the size is great, but those buckles are more functional than stylish :)

I'm thinking about that treck. It's a little scary not being sure about sizes before I ship it to me and a LOT of options.

I have the ONA Union Street...I think it fits most of your requirements. It's pricey and can be a bit snug...but could definitely fit your mentioned items and is a well built sturdy bag with some sex appeal. ;)

I didn't like the Tenba as much either. It's very stiff and the buckets don't matter. There is a zipper at the top. But I keep my Hasselblad equipment in it, that I never use. Whereas, the UD50 is used every job I take.

I did get a Epiphanie Paris bag for ladies. It's amazing and very stylish and would fit your requirements, but alas, not for men.

Haha, yes. The Paris is a tad girly.

Yes the UD50 is looking good. It does look quite big though (online). I don't have any 200mm lenses that I'll be taking with me. I do have one, but I don't carry it everywhere.
