Ok so I currently have the LowPro 160AW Classified it's a nice bag, it's served me well for a while now. However, I'm finding with my ever growing gear list (recently added a kata rain cover) and to say the least the bag is now stuffed :P.

So now I'm looking to upgrade to a backpack that will allow me to carry two DSLR bodies, I'm going to be adding a second at some point in the near future, probably a 7D. I will also be adding more lenses as well, so here are my needs:

a bag that will fit:
2 bodies
1 flash
1 rain sleeve
a couple of lenses

I have no brand loyalty so feel free to suggest anything, however if there's a LowPro that will fit my needs that would be great as I've loved my LowPro bag, which I will be keeping around for when I need to travel lighter.

Thanks in advance guys!

Definitely, F Stop if you're in the market for a backpack.

I went with the Kata Bumblebee PL-220 Backpack. It's fantastic and it easily mates up with my Kata PL-LT-317 Sling, It also comes with the gear to attach the camera to the solder harness straps so you can carry your pack and have the camera secured via straps to your chest for quick shots along the trail.

+1 on the F-Stop bags too...
