Thanks for posting this.

A more vertically designed shoulder bag seems like a great solution to quick camera storage if your back is already dedicated to a hiking pack/camelback.

Thus---
I have been looking all over for a tough, vertical, messenger-type camera bag, not a messenger that I have to frankenstein and end up paying more in the long run. And not something so wide and bulky that it's going to be bumping into my backpack.

I'm ordering one, asap.

Took me a full month to figure that one out.

Do you think it can fit a 450D with a 70-200 F4 attached?

I'll give it a try the next time I visit my mate and his 70-200 :)

Internal dimensions are 10.25 x 5.0 x 10.25" (26.04 x 12.7 x 26.04cm) (WxDxH)

Now I am having the difficulty of deciding between this and the F-3x. The F-3x seems to have better space for miscellaneous stuff and seems to "contour" to your body better, though I have tried neither bag, just this one with all the padding seems as if it would be protrusive all the time.

Maybe I'll end up with both.

I think I'm leaning towards black...

I have an F-1X incoming... There is no such thing as "one camera bag" :D

Ummm ... well decisions are hard. I have both the F-5XC and F-3x and they complement each other well.

Camera plus-
1 lens - F-5XB
2 lens - F-5XC
3 lens - F-3x

see ... simple!

Definitely going on the wish list because I'm going to give my g/f the 5MDH when I get her setup (which will be my backup backup :lol:) and get this as a "bare essentials" although I can carry quite a bit.

As always, pics of ya'll wearing one?

There's one large pocket on the back that runs almost the height of the bag.

Correct! Sorry for not showing it in the pictures :)

Still madly in love with this bag btw, it goes everywhere I go now.
