Hey everyone - I'm using a small Lowepro Toploader Zoom 50AW as a day bag and can fit a 5D with 135 in it, but little else.

The pocket on the front is great for CF and batteries, but I'm looking for something similar in design, longer perhaps so I can carry maybe another small prime or TCs or generally have access to kit a bit easier.

I've seen the Lowepro Nova series which I like the design of, and the Lowepro toploaders that are larger than mine, but I'd prefer to keep a small shoulder bag that's space efficient and easy access.

Too much room and I'll overfill it!

Ideas very welcome...

I have the toploader 75 and find it hangs long and is bulky. I like the Domke F3x which will hold my 60D+100-400 laying on it's side. Outside pockets will hold your flash and a small lens. It will collapse when lightly loaded and hug your side. It has really grown on me.

I had a look Jim, looks good. I like how it collapses flatter when emptier and doesn't look like a camera bag, helps to deter any potential thieves.

Only problem is it's about £120! Good call though - I may stretch to it.

Yes they are a bit pricey. I was lucky enough to find one like new for sale in the marketplace on this forum. I bought my toploader 75 used as well. Both very good deals.

Good luck with your search.
