I currently have a Lowepro Slingshot 200AW, Flipside 300 and a Pelican 1510 Medium Hard Case. For an upcoming trip to Hawaii, I want to be able to bring my 5D2, a 70-200 2.8L IS, 17-40 L, a 50 1.8, and my iPad (I was thinking of the 24-70 as well, but decided it would be too heavy to slog all that around the airports, and I don't want to check my gear -- don't trust the airlines). None of my current carry cases will work so I was looking at the Streetwalker HD. Any current owners care to comment or offer up an alternative? Thanks.

I had the hard drive for a couple of nights. I got it because I wanted to carry my laptop along with my gear. a 17" Dell fit fine and I had room for half again more gear. Took it back and exchanged it for a Pro. Got an AI 17 for the laptop. Couldn't be happier with the Pro or the AI. Carries everything I have with room to spare still. It's very comfortable and fit in the overhead on our trip to west coast.

The SW HD will swallow your three lenses and body. You will have a ton of room leftover, so I'm not sure its the best option for you and it might seem overkill. It is a great bag however.

You might want to check out the Streetwalker Pro. I have this bag, like the previous poster. While there is no dedicated laptop compartment, you might be able to slide your IPad within a sleeve within the main compartment. (Never done this, but it may be possible?)

I can hold five lenses + my Gripped 5D2 easily in this bag and it is less bulky than the HD.

ThinkTank Harddrive is large bag, it will fit the gear you want and have space left in there. :)

Keep in mind that lugging all that gear around hawaii will make you VERY VERY hot and sweaty. I would bring the flipside 300 and just sandwich the ipad inbetween the cover of the flipside.

Don't forget to bring ND filters and circular polarizers.

Crumpler 7MDH FTW! :cool:

Love mine alongside my TT SW HD!

Thanks for all the replies and advice so far .... yeah, I was afraid the SW HD might a bit be overkill which is why I was looking for some experiences. The Flipside 300 unfortunately is "underkill" -- with my 70-200 attached I barely have any room to add another lens, much less the iPad. I'm not a big Crumpler fan -- it's a great bag no doubt but I prefer something I can throw on my back and not kill a particular shoulder. Will definitely look at the SW Pro. Thanks again.
