Actually with the delta strap and the nice pad they have the weight quite well distributed and comfortable to carry.

I have actually held a Billingham bag and think they are marvelous, but I am a 5 ft 2 in woman with a bad back. :) One day carrying one of those loaded, and I would need surgery. You are are strong man, Doc. :)

I can say without reservations that after buying several Think Tank bags and belt system, I have not had to search far for what I need. In fact, I haven't looked or had an urge for another bag.

Ditto. They are AMAZING!

I only need a Think Tank backpack and the Cotton Carrier. I'll be all set in January when I get those!

Jim, you always had a great eye for great gear. I love the TT UD60 - great for a weekend away with laptop, camera body and some glass.

I also have a closet full of bags - Crumplers, Domke's, Kinesis, LowePro's, you name it.
The one I use MOST is the Domke J-3B. Love it.

I'm curious about Think Tank UD bags, you don't think that zipper isn't too convenient?

No, not really. You leave it open when you are shooting and need ready access. Otherwise, you zip it up for travel.

Hmmmm... Gee Dave, from your screen name "2mnycars", I sense that perhaps Bagoholic isn't your only vice? :confused:

I seem to have a bit of a problem there too, but thankfully not to the same extent! :rolleyes:

-howard

Thanks Howard! I'm actually retaliating to the computer police here at home. ;)
My wife objected to me using a combination of my name and initials to sign on, claiming identity theft was just around the corner. She's the car nut! So now I post as 2mnycars...
Let's see, we've had , well, lots of cars. ;)

ps I'm back, looking for another camera bag. I've never had a Domke. Maybe it's time.

Regards,
DaveL

Had at one time:
Domke F-2
Tamrac 708
Lowepro Orion AW
Lowepro Commercial AW
Lowepro Primus AW
Lowepro S&F 85AW
Lowepro S&F 500AW
Lowepro Dryzone 100
Lowepro Stealth AW II (Just sold)
Mountainsmith Tour FX (Just sold)
Crumpler 5MDH (Just sold)
Crumpler 7MDH
Photoflex Galen Rowell (the large bag)
Numerous non-photo bags (Mountainsmith, Timbuk2) with random photo inserts.

Currently have:
Lowepro Stealth Reporter 650AW (probably going up for sale soon)
Lowepro Pro Trekker II AW (probably going up for sale soon)
Think Tank Streetwalker Harddrive
Think Tank Speed Racer (being delivered tomorrow)

Thinking about:
Think Tank UD50
Think Tank Shape Shifter
Gura Gear Kiboko

You might be noticing a trend away from Lowepro towards Think Tank, for urban travel I am leaning more towards the Think Tank bags. Lighter, easier to travel with and functional. From everything I've read the Kiboko is one of the best photo backpacks available, only thing keeping me from jumping is the lack of laptop compartment. The Shapeshifter looks great for carrying a body and basic lens kit, plus laptop if traveling.

I just added the Think Tank holster bag for Christmas and it's wonderful. I fit my 40D with 70-200 2.8 IS in it perfectly, but no wiggle room. It's a bag I will keep that gear in.

As a confessed bagoholic, why do I keep looking for another one?

Someone should set up bagoholics anonymous; seriously.

I thought I used to have a problem, but once I found ThinkTank, I've yet to go looking at any other manufacturers

ThinkTank StreetWalker Harddrive
ThinkTank Modular Belt System + Padded Belt
and all the others,

But honestly since I've gotten these two TT pieces, I've yet to do anything else with the others except leave them in the closet to hold gear I'm not using.

I am looking at a Pelican 1650 just to use as a Hold All in the closet, so I might be selling all the old bags once I get that baby...Sickness cured:D
