With room to expand.

Current kit is small bit growing. Need something that will hold 1-2 bodies, 2-3 lens, a flash, 1L H2O bottle, cards, small notebook(old school, not PC), a few other odds & ends.

Prefer a backpack style. Thought about a sling but do not like some of the reviews concerning weight distribution. Price range about $75-$125.

Any suggestions?

I just got this Tamrac when I bought my last lens. I had been using a LowePro MicroTrekker and I adore it but I just had to have something bigger... I also have a monster LowePro bag that I can't lift when loaded.

This Tamrac is awesome. I have seven lenses, a big rocket blower, various filters and other junk in it with plenty of room to spare. I also have room for my laptop, mouse, card reader, various cords and cables plus my books for a class I am taking.

It is big but I think it i about perfect for me. :)

Lowepro Photo Trekker AW II backpack and a Lowepro Stealth reporter 650 AW. If I need to walk with all the gear I use the backpack if I can put the bag down then I use the stealth reporter. Remember it is all nice and good have all your gear until you have to carry around.

Here is also an article by Thom Hogan on bag selection (long, but a good read):

This was suggested on another forum. I think I'm going to get it.

Canon 200 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B00009R6TA/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_all/105-4482852-9205251)

Thanks for your suggestions.

The Tamrac is much more comfortable than the Canon bag. I have a Tamrac Expedition 5, that is very comfortable with my equipment:

Canon 30D w/ Batt grip
70-200 F2.8 IS
24-70 F2.8
10-22
Tamron 18-200
Canon 580EX and a Point and shoot.

You may need a larger one but I highly recommend the Tamrac Expedition.

I have read more than once that the Canon bags do not have adequate padding to protect your gear with drops, falls and the like. :shocked:

This is my recommendation for a fantastic bag. I use one at home and one at work and the still look new after 7 years. Very usable and rugged.
