So I'm having a difficult time tracking down a suitable bag to hold my gripped 7D and two lenses (17-55 EF-S and either the 24-105 EF or 55-250 EFS) for an upcoming Disneyland visit. I plan on spending every possible minute in the park (up to 14 hours) and would prefer a bag that can hold these items without being cumbersome. Sling bags are likely out of the question as they typically cause me back pain over extended periods of time. I'm open to any suggestions you have. My budget is $150 USD.

lowepro hatchback 22l. This will be my next bag purchase. Most of my Disney trips have been with the 10-22. Once I have my 35L. I will only take the 10-22 and 35L.

I'm still on the fence about taking the 10-22. I find that I rarely use it when I also have the 17-55. Then again, every time I leave the 10-22 behind I end up needing it. Ugh...

I went to Disney World in March and took a gripped 7D, an EF-S 17-55mm 2.8, and a big 70-200L 2.8 II. Everything fit neatly into the lower compartment of my Lowepro Fastpack 250 AW, just $95 from Amazon (external link). The upper compartment held ponchos, extra drink bottles, spare batteries, and other miscellaneous items. For shooting fireworks, I strapped a travel tripod to the side of the Fastpack. I was pretty comfortable carrying the pack on my back all day with the equipment, and was grateful to have my camera gear available whenever I saw a chance to get special photos of the kids and grandkids.

Try a fannie pack. One of my bags is an old Lowepro Orion and it has worked well with a variety of body & 2 lens combos. I'd take your grip off and just carry a spare battery for an active funtime like DW. Grips are great with long AF teles in sports and for wedding shoots but just baggage out having fun.

Go light, I usually carry my body/lens on my shoulder to Disney. Don't want to miss any of the fun. Wide is great then I can crop or footzoom.

I have a Lowepro Flipside 300 (external link). I carry my 7D (gripped), my 17-55mm, 70-200mm, and Speedlite in it. Everything is pretty tight inside, but it works. Furthermore, I like the added security of the backpack opening against my back.

For backpacks, I really like the Lowepro Flipsides. I've had a Flipside 400 for a few years and love it. Lowepro makes some quality stuff. For hitting the parks though, I prefer a smaller messenger bag and a lighter kit vs backpacks. If had your gear, I'd take off the grip and pack the 7D, 18-55, 10-22 and get the smallest Crumpler that fits it all. 430EX as well if you're going with kids and will be doing character shots / dining. For the most part, camera will be on your neck and spare lens in the bag so a backpack would be overkill imo. Only time I put my camera away is when boarding a ride. We have a trip to Disney World coming up soon and my kit this year will be the 7D, 17-55, 11-16, 430EX, and Lenspen in a Tamrac Rally 6. Didn't take the 11-16 last year and fit it all in an old shoulder kit bag from my 35mm days. Worked perfectly. Found myself wanting to go a little wider at times though. I've never been to the left coast parks so can't speak to attractions which would warrant a telephoto. Good thing about the 55-250 though is you can probably fit it into whatever bag/pack you choose along with the other gear.

Take the 17-55 and 55-250, and nothing else. You don't need a UWA. If you only want to take one lens, then go with the 24-105. As for the bag, check out the lowepro flipside sport 10L. I have the 15l and it is a very light, compact and comfortable pack.

Thanks for all of the suggestions everyone. I was able to find the LowePro 22L in a local photography shop and found it to be perfect for my needs once I removed the grip from my camera. I also had to modify my lens selection as the 24-105 I planned on renting wasn't available. The 22L was more than capable of meeting my modified needs. Thanks for all the suggestions!
