I am looking for a new bag to carry most of my gear when I am just out and about and not sure what photo opportunities I will come across. I presently use a Tamrac Velocity 9, which is a great bag, but it is designed to stack the gear and it makes it hard to get to different lenses quickly. Plus, with 3-4 lenses in my Velocity 9 I don't have room for my 580 EX II flash.

I really like the Crumpler 7MDH but want to weigh all of my options before getting this bag. I am really interested in seeing a Domke bag about the same size/price as the 7MDH. There are so many options from Domke but I have had a hard time finding pics with actual gear in them.

I want a bag that will allow me to carry my XTi body with grip plus the following lenses: Sigma 70-200 2.8, Sigma 24-60 2.8, Tokina 12-24 f/4, Nifty Fifty as well as my flash gun, filter wallet, batteries, various cleaning items, and the usual misc. items. I would also like to be able to fit my monopod some where into the equation on occasion if possible. I will also be adding a 85 1.8 to my gear list soon.

I'm not a fan of backbacks. I also want a bag with the stealth look of the Crumpler and the Domke.

Thanks in advance.

start with the F2 and work your way up or down from there. the domke bags have good resale value and you can get good deals on ebay.

i've had to buy and sell a few times to get the right bags that work for me.

Thanks for the responses. I really wish someone local stocked these bags. I'm leaning towards the J3. The search will continue. If I have to buy and return a few I guess that's what will need to be done.

*Edit* I thought I was going to go with the Crumpler but changed my mind.

I decided to go with the Domke J1 and ordered it from B and H. It's more bag than what I need which is exactly what I am looking for. It will give me a bag to store my equipment in at home and something to take it all with me when necessary. This review is what really helped seal the deal for me (thanks Hoff). I almost bought the Crumpler 7MDH but I already have a couple of bags that give me about the same amount of space as that bag offers. I am looking forwarding to getting my Domke this week.

I got the bag today. The jury is still out on this one. It may be going back...

The size is perfect. I love the large side pockets. I am a bit disappointed in the bag material. I probably should have gone with the F2 in Sand. I guess I was hoping for something that does not look so much like a...camera bag.
