I've been debating a bag for my 500. Thought I had settled on a glass taxi or one of similar size. Then I found the 600 aw II. Thought it might be a little big at first but I like the idea of having the body attached and ready to go. Anyone have any experience with the combo?

Bought the Glass Limo(nice bag) and it is a little tight with 500 and 7d. Am thinking of keeping it for the regular stuff and getting a 600 AW II for 500 with 7d and 1.4 ready to go.

Ive got the 600AW II too. Ideal pack for long hikes with a lot of gear. But as you say; It is a little big. Like many people i tend to use all the room i have, thus carrying around a lot of gear that i probably wont use...

I recently got the Tamrac 5793 Super Telephoto Lens Pack. I highly recommend it, it should fit your combo nicely. And with the modular accessories you can easily attach more pouches if you need them. I have an extra pouch added for the 100-400L and one for both of my extenders.

As far as I can tell with the tamrac you cannot have the hood in the extended position right?

Yes you can. Im not sure of the exact measurements of your 500, but i think it fits.

Even with the 2x extender attached i can fit the 300 in there with the hood attached. (Extended position)

The Tamrac site has the exact measurements.

Hmm just looked at the dimensions and I don't think it will fit with the hood extended. Which is kind of a draw back as I'd like to be able to whip it out and take a picture if need be. It's hard to find many reviews on this bag.
