Looking for some suggestions for a shoulder bag.

Equipment to carry:
2 lens (17-40, 70-200)
2 slrs gripped
2 flash 580 ex2

Suggestions? Want something easy on the shoulders. And a boxing day special would be nice too!

If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

I have the Brazillion Dollar Home bag from Crumpler and it holds all of that but it's pretty big. I bought it so I could keep my cameras and lenses together and just pull them out of the bag. Flashes fit in the middle and I still have room in the top.

$$$$$$ most won't wish to pay for it though

Domke original shooter bag. It will hold all that with a LITTLE room to spare.

How do these bags stack up in terms of having em out in the rain or snow?

Domke is not a weather bag. Lowepro always has a nice rain cover setup.

That is going to be bloody heavy and will not be good for your shoulder no matter what bag it is.
I'd suggest a backpack instead. Something with quick access can be almost as convenient as a shoulder bag, but will be much better for your back and shoulders. E.g. the F Stop Kenti or the Lowepro flipside series.

The Nova I mentioned has an integrated all-weather cover, and is less then $80, and a quality bag.

This. What you want to carry isn't going to be light though, regardless of the bag. Get a Domke Post Office Pad for it.

Actually, I've had my Domke F1x out all day in the rain and the contents have stayed dry. The canvas swells up as it absorbs moisture and forms essentially a barrier. Nylon bags with "waterproof" coating tend to crack, wear and allow leakage.

I did not know this. Mine is nylon -- looks like Canvas FTW. Thanks!

If by 'original shooter bag' you are refering to the F2, I don't think his gear would fit.

Mine can hold my 7D and 5D2 (gripped or not) but with lenses NOT mounted, a sigma flash, 28-135 lens and 100mm macro lens.. But the lenses are tight. I don't see how a 70-200 would fit in there...

Here's what it looks like with the two bodies (7D, and a 5D) and 2 lenses (24-105 and 100mm L Macro)

You're using the 4-compartment insert, but only using 2 of the compartments. First thing I do with all my Domke bags is get the 720-230 3-compartment insert. Or since the current inserts have the internal partitions attached by velcro, readjust it so you're using adjoining, not diagonal, pockets and collapse the other half. The body with 70-200 will then fit on its side in front (or back, your call) of the insert; the other body and lens can live in the insert vertically.

Hmm... the dividers on my 4 compartment insert are sewed on....
plus the two lenses wouldn't fit side by side in my case.
