Holy Crap that is Crazy!

There are Ebay sellers that have the UD35 V1 for around $100.00 here but I didn't realize the added "Value" up there?

Go figure?

Too many bags too little time!

Ed, that's why I was critical of some of my bags. Take the Retro 10--$149 in US. $209 + 13% tax here. I saw that bag this time last year for $109...in the U.S.
Great bag. But is it worth that? (And what's the cause? Government's added value? Retailer's markup? I don't know.)
I admire Think Tank's quality, and I admire them for making changes during the life span of a bag.

It's a funny business we're in. Take a bag home, do a search and instant buyer's remorse! And cameras! I never had to apoogize for buying pro quality. Now when I upgrade and spend a bunch of money, the very next thing is the manufacturer brings out a less expensive model, that produces better images! Or works better at high ISO! I wish I could send my obsolete camera away, pay a fee, and have a *chip* or whatever installed to improve image quality.
Now, when I purchase a Nikon for instance, I look and wonder whether I should change systems? This photography business sure is changing.

You're right Too many bags...

Yeah ... the UD35 is basically the UD40 rotated 90 degrees with a small 13" laptop pocket on the back, or a netbook sized computer and a gripped/pro body on a longer lens. A very versatile bag!

I think I bought mine (ver. 1) the very day they were announced. Not many small bags will hold a camera mounted on the 70-200L f/2.8 along with another lens or two.

I bought my UD40, then I bought a grip, and a used iPad....Should have bought the 35. I thought the 40 was a better stealth bag for work. Regret not buying the 35. I find the iPad really is the spoiler with the UD40.

Back on track...Have the Classified 160AW Black. This bag has been out for some time.

Why did I buy it?

It is so easy to carry. D300S + grip, with 18-200VR mounted. NEX5 system too.

And it carries my iPad so beautifully! Frankly, I am really impressed with the bag. So thanks to tvphotog for referring to the bag and suggesting to others that they take a look at it. It is a great bag for every day carryd with my gear.

Howard, it is not a Billingham. But it was what I can afford now. Plans for Billinghams are on hold for now! My Hadley Digital will be lonely for a while. c

Best

Would anyone know if a Canon 1D MKIV camera with a Canon 70-200 F2.8L IS MKII lens would fit into a LowePro Classified 160 shoulder bag?
Thanks.

Wish I could help. I have a d300s with grip. My lenses are an 18-200vr and 70-300vr. I find the camera a tight fit. Takes 2 hands.
I have posted elsewhere asking to see photos of other owners' bags.
You posted a while ago. Just saw it now...

My Classified 160 is reborn.
I've been carrying my UD40 everyday. It hasn't carried everything I want. And I don't like the zipper on the top.
I have rearranged the partitions within the Classified.
It is bigger than I need, but it is bought and paid for.
I shall try it with my Tamrac bag strap. It is padded suede, and just doesn't slip.

I like the iPad slot.
I like being able to keep my camera out of sight.
There is room to carry a Maxpedition organizer.

Still don't like the strap it comes with.
