I'm a heavy traveler, and by that I mean that I like to travel heavy and carry a lot of stuff with me. I do cross states at least once a month, and regularly take the train or drive to New York City for conferences and/or fun on weekends.

I've been traveling with 3 bags, laptop+documents swiss gear shoulder bag, large Canon bag for the camera stuff, and a duffel bag for clothes,etc..

I'm looking for a bag that can accommodate and protect my camera gear, including lenses (3-4), charger, cleaning kit, flash, batteries, etc.. AND my 13.3" MacBook Pro, power cord, and external HDD.

I've been browsing through this thread and I'm overwhelmed by the number of bags there are but can't find THE PERFECT BAG FOR ME.

I need your suggestions, maybe you guys can point out some bags that can make it easy for me to carry all these things together.

I don't mind the price as long as it's a bag that will live long enough to pay for its price.

Thanks in advance,

The perfect bag is the one that brings you comfort when using it. The only one that can judge if a bag is comfortable is you :D

Advise go to a shop and test some bags with your gear

Are you searching for a back pack or shoulder bag ?
and what is your budget.

For my dslr stuff I use:
Back pack: Kata minibee UL-111 black (fits a macbook)
Shoulder bag: Think tank retrospective 20

For the small camera:
Back pack; National Geographic Private Collection P5080 (fits a macbook)
Shoulder bag: ONA The Bowery Cognac Leather

I was just browsing the thinktank website, I think it's the closest to my needs so far.
I only have two lenses now, but I know the collection will expand very soon (50mm 1.2L to start with :cool:)

Very nice, but I'll go with a backpack as the weight will probably kill my shoulder :D

I love this bag! Very nice material.. It's like a collectible item.. Hopefully in the future for hiking..

Thank you all so much, that was really helpful.. I think I'll go with the ThinkTank Airport Accelerator.

F-STop Kenti then. Great backpack. Small but versatile and best for use with a laptop.

Comfort is something personal. For me its was not that comfortable when fully packed. Many back packs are good for laptops ;-)a
Best thing to do is test backpacks your self at a shop. Never trust reviews or comments about comfort. This is a personal thing ! :D
