I just want it to hold 5dm2, 85L and flash.

currently bagless due to my domke breaking :(

Need something, not sure what else to try but this one, just wish it was amazon prime!

Take the 5MDH IMO. You never know what extras you want to take along on last min trips.

Here's a review of the 4MDH:

https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=925947

Looks pretty small! When I go too small with a bag, I find it takes longer to stow my camera, or take it out to shoot. So it's not very convenient to use. Then I get another accessory, and end up buying another bag anyway. So I have 2 LP Stealth reporters, 2 Domkes, 2 classified AW's...

Here's a review of the 5MDH:

Interesting bag!

We have had 2 seater cars for years! Packing for a trip is a chore! So I keep buying small bags that I almost instantly outgrow.

Good luck with your choice!

I'll get another bag at some point, but just want something small that holds just the 1 camera/lens + flash, nothing more

Careful shopper. :-)

My most frequent every day carry bag is my Billingham Hadley Digital. I can carry my d300s with grip attached, and 18-200VR mounted. Unless I need a disguise bag. Then I use my Maxpedition Colossus. 511 have a clone that costs a lot less.
A lady who posts here packs a 9 mm handgun in a 511...with her camera gear.

Yes, i agree they look nice. But their prices are so much nicer ;)

The hadley range is the right size.

I use a hadley pro myself, but I use a crumpler 6MDH for when I dress more casual. Based on the size of the 6MDH, a 5MDH should be ok for your needs.

Billingham bags are very expensive in some markets, so they may not appeal to some.

Crumpler have good features. Price is reasonable.

edit....I think you can buy Crumpler from this website?

yes. link:

Here's a review of an inexpensive bag by LowePro.

https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=859062

edit: So this LP bag is relatively low cost; the Crumpler bag (5MDH would be my suggestion, like others here) moderate; Think Tank Retro 7? or 5? would be more; Billingham (much more; worth it to me, but perhaps not to others)

There are so many bag choices out there.

One of my pet peeves is how a bag carries. The strap and pad make a huge difference to me. I particulary don't like having to hold onto a strap to keep a bag on my shoulder. I've worked at this for a long, long time--and have trouble changing old habits. We all have work habits; those are just mine. Out of those choices? I would pick the Think Tank Retro line because the strap and pad are so comfortable.

I have owned a Crumpler 7MDH, a Think Tank Retro 10. Both sold. I still have 2 Billingham bags. Newer? Hadley Pro. Older? Hadley Digital. Some Domkes, and... My name is Dave. I am a Bagaholic. ;)

Hope this helps.


Dave

I bought a Crumpler 4MDH in NYC the other day. It worked well with a 5DmkII and 24-105. Nothing else though.

I would recommend the Crumpler 5MDH for easy access when out shooting. I feel more safe when my gears not crammed in a tight space!

They also offer a lifetime warranty so no matter if your bag breaks you're insured! Although I've never had mine let me down.

You can purchase them direct from the site with a 14day exchange / return policy:

welcome to the forum! I find it easier to use a bag when there is some room left over. And they sometimes carry better too.

You can buy Crumpler from the store on this forum as well. The banner is on the top of each page: P.O.T.N Support Shop...
