Bag recommendations?

I am making the leap to FF and am selling off my smaller body & lenses & bag. I know there are tons of bag options out there so am just trying to narrow the field a bit.

Current new gear is a 5d mk iii, 24-105mm, 85mm 1.8, and flash. I have a tripod (it's a crappy one, but it is something that I find I need to carry a lot). I will probably add at least a 50mm in the short term.

A lot of shooting is just around the house, kids, family events, and so on. I do the occasional family/portrait shoot, and would like to increase this. I enjoy landscape but I don't get a chance to do it often.

Since I'm not a pro I feel I don't need a highly specialized bag - I don't hike in the arctic or anything, and I don't do weddings. I just need something super functional, not uncomfortable, and plenty of space for current gear & a little growth. I'm open to different styles (sling, pack, messenger) but am a little ignorant on the advantages & disadvantages of each type.

Sub $100 if possible.

What do you all think?

Maybe something like this: http://www.amazon.com …rds=case+logic+​camera+bag (external link)

If you plan on adding a battery grip to your 5dmkiii, you'll need something with extra depth. I just bought this: http://www.amazon.com …s=lowepro+flips​ide+500+aw (external link)

The Lowepro is more bag than you would need now, but your gear will grow sooner and more prolifically than you think.

Look up a kata bag. Comfy design and will fit the gear you have plus some. Kata 467dl IMO.

Those both look great - I have a friend with a Kata sling bag and he loves it.

These were both packs - can you guys comment on the sling type bags? Any thoughts on those?

The TT Retrospective series is very nice - but they start at $140 or so. And one big enough to fit a body, 3 lenses plus a flash is even more.
