hey guys. so i own a rebel and my 24-105 is usually mounted on it. i currently have a kata dr-466i and a lowepro slingshot 200. these a re great bags but my problem with them is they kinda get heavy or cumbersome after a long day. i want something thats going to move with me and at the same time, eliminate the need to carry them on my shoulders.

my requirements would be that it not be too big (too big would be the lowepro inverse 200 just to give you an idea) and that it fit the usual stuff i bring with me (canon 400d + 24-105L, 580 exII, canon 10-22mm + a lenspen and microfiber)

itd be great if i could bring a tripod/monopod along but its not a requirement.

thanks! :D

p.s. ive thought of the think tank modular system im just not sure how it would be like when im doing street photography.

I use the Lowepro Off Trail 2 and a black rapid strap. I carry a gripped body with 24-105 on the blackrapid and a gripped body with a 70-200 2.8 attached in the main compartment of the bag. I also carry a 580 and a 430 in the two side compartments, along with 2 extra batteries a CF wallet my iPhone wallet and keys (all on the 430 side). Oh and I stick one set of new batteries on each side under the flash. There are small cicular pads in the bottem which I put the batteries under. I use this setup for 90% of the races I shoot. I also hang a towel on each side of the bag between the main compartment and side bags. Its not to bad to carry for me, but then again 6'2 275.

+1 on the off trail 2. another plus: you can wrap the belt around itself and buckle it, then slide the entire bag (including the 2 side pouches) into a messenger bag (i use a cheap army surplus shoulder bag to disguise it).


5DII, 7D, 20-35 2.8L, 35L, 40 Pancake, 50 1.4, 85 1.8, 135 2.0L, 300 f/4L IS, 580EXII, Alien Bees, Bags & Bags & More Bags.

Think Tank belt system is the most trim of all the belt systems. I've had Kinesis, LP and TTP and TTP is the best.
