TTP UD50? Space to put all your lenses plus perhaps a small water bottle, snack or that sort of daypack items.

A Lowe Pro "Classified 140" or Tenba "Messenger Bag Small" would be good choices as well. I believe they both take laptops.

i was thinking about the tenba messengers as well...

With regards to the UD35 does it fit my lenses WITH the hoods?

It can fit the length of the 70-200 with hood alone, unmounted. Or it can fit the 70-200 hood reversed, mounted. What this means is that the bag is deep enough and wide enough for the 8.5cm or so that the 70-200 + hood reversed/in position will take up.

Your 135L's no problem. The diameter thickness of the 85L might be a problem. I wouldn't think that the UD35 would be all that great - the bag is rather deep making you have to stack your 35 and 85. I'd get a UD50 instead, or perhaps the tenba.

I've also owned the Lowepro Stealth Reporter D200AW. If you're okay with carrying a box around, it's a great bag.

i was thinking of traveling with just a 5dmkii mounted on a 135L, 35L on standby for wide and a 13" macbook for class... The biggest dilemma i have right now is that i want to go to school and bring my camera at the same time.

That is the beauty of the UD35. It is one of the very few smaller bags that can carry a 70-200 f/2.8 mounted on the camera. The UD50 cannot, although the lens unmounted will fit. I use the UD35 more than any of my shoulder bags because it will hold the longer lenses and my MacBook Air. I also prefer a taller rather than wider case, and do not have a problem with stacking lenses if necessary (just put a thin divider anchored with the velcro at one end to make a flap which easily flips out of the way). I use a UD60 when I want to really load up, especially with 2 cameras.

I don't use a gripped body, but the UD35 is also one of the few messenger bags which will support the added thickness of the gripped body on a lens, although you sacrifice some of the notebook space to do so (a netbook will still fit).

The Tenba or LowePro Classified 140/160 might also be a possibility, but I think they are larger and bulkier bags.

are you able to put a hood into your bag? im thinking that a 5dii, and holy trinity is QUITE heavy in my bag. LOL... i am seriously thinking of just carrying only my 135L.

does the UD35 have a accessory to act as a beltpack? LOL

I use the UD35 to hold 1dmk3, 35l, 85l, and 70-200 2.8 IS. I have 70-200 on the left most, unmounted w/hood. In the middle I have 35 and 85 stacked, with one of them mounted on the 1d and hood reversed. I don't use a divider between the 35 and 85, because with one lens mounted it doesn't reach the lens at the bottom. On the right most there is still space for a flash.

For travel I slip a 14" notebook at the back, and still zips up ok, although it is a little tight.

Yes, I have the hoods with the lenses. I have one UD35 configured to hold a 5D-II and the 24-70 f/2.8 with hood extended (protection for extending lens element), and the 70-200 f/2.8 with hood reversed. The camera can be mounted to either lens when in the bag. The MacBook is in the back.

I have another UD35 configured to hold a 17-40, 24-105, and 70-200 all f/4.0 plus a flash and either the 5D-II or 7D. The camera can be mounted to any of the lenses when in the bag. The MacBook is in the back.

No, no beltpack on the UD35, although when going through the airport it will slip over the handle of a roller bag. There is a optional "backpack strap" available from TT, but I think it looks rather awkward and difficult to get into the bag when attached.

I am LITERALLY THIIIIISSSSSSSSSS close to order the UD 35. I just cant justify the high price tag.

I've got SO MANY bags... Adding another would be painful LOL. Lowepro nova 200 AW, Lowepro flipside 300, Lowepro Gadget EX, Storm Case im2500, Lowepro inverse 100AW. The inverse is perfect for a walk around for a 5dmkii, 35L, 135L, and a 430Ex. It just doesnt have a laptop bag. I dont want to carry 2 bags.

I am trying to think about how heavy my gear would be. LOL.

You can get the backpack harness to carry the UD 35 as a backpack. It works really nice since the UD 35 is a slender pack. It sits nice on your back.

can you justify their prices? you have so many of their bags... is 149.99 really a good deal for a UD 35?

Sell the nova, gadget to offset the cost? ;)

Once you use a think tank, you'll most likely try to be loyal towards the company because their materials are so good.

I used to have the lowepro stealth reporter d200aw, toploader 75aw and primus aw. Then my think tank streetwalker HD came, and all the 3 lowepro bags got sold. I swapped the SWHD for a think tanke airport takeoff, and now I'm gonna get a speed demon, also from think tank.

In short: Think Tank poisons you with their awesome designs and materials. They're like the mainstream L lenses quality for Canon, without going into the leica territory of billingham and whatnot.

I have the Tenba messenger. It's a nice bag. I also have the Kata 465, the 467 has the laptop addition.

I figured that I'd buy one system. Couldn't be happier. What's nice about TT is that all of their parts can be interchanged. For example, if I need to take the gripped camera and 100-400, I can just add the digital holster to my Rotation 360. I love the glass taxi for taking a camera bracket with a camera attached to a job. You can carry that pack like a backpack or a shoulder bag.
