    it's awesome. I can put my laptop and all my camera stuff in it and it still has room for whatever else I might want to take with me. it'll be great for the little trip I'm taking to DC over thanksgiving!

    How is it for grabbing your camera on the fly? It looks like it'd be a pain to open without taking it all the way off.

    I'm looking for a bag like a messenger bag that'll hang at my hip. Unfortunately, I'm slightly bigger around than most and those type of bags tend to be armpit bags for me. :(

    get two of them and splice 'em!


    lol jk yes you would have to take the bag off to get at stuff, but if I am looking for pictures, I have my camera around my neck, not in the bag. I am not afraid to look like a tourist. people ignore you more when you look like that anyway. I keep my gear in the bag at all times though, so I needed something that I could fit everything into.

    These fascinate me... is that one of the single shoulder strap jobs you can swing around front? I can see one of these in my future once I get the gear to justify it. LOVE the idea of the notebook tucked right in. Awesome.

    This is a normal looking backpack. That's probably what I like most. I don't want a bag that screams "I have over $5000 worth of gear in me" while I'm in an airport.

    I have a little 1 shoulder bag also. I like it, but it is too small now.

    If you like beer and street photography, send me a PM. I'm about an hour and a half commute time from the best little hole in the wall on Earth. The Brickskellar. It's in the Guinness Book for having over 1000 beers on the menu and it's right in the middle of DC, which offers up a ton of night time shooting opportunities.

    Check out crumpler. I'm medium sized at 5'11" and 200 and mine sits right on my hip with room to spare. It's the 7 Million Dollar Home. I could take a picture with the straps all the way down if you're interested in them.

    Nope. Kata makes the 3N1 - XX series that has straps you can comfigure as a back pack, both across the chest, or only one strap and the camer and lenses are accessed via the sides. I have the 3N1 20 and it's held:

    5D MKII (I'll have the grip today to see how well that fits)
    24-70 f/2.8L (on the MKII)
    70-200 f/2.8 IS
    15mm f/2.8 Fish Eye

    With those there's room for two more smaller lenses about the 15mm size. Something like a 16-35 would fit nicely.

    In the top compartment I fit:
    580EX II
    2x pocket wizard PII's
    Sekonic L358
    Misc cards, cords, readers, charges, etc...

    And to top it off, the bag is slightly wider than the 70-200, so everything fits snugly without much worry of things moving around.

    I have a LowePro slingshot. It does not hold a laptop, but it works great and is super easy to access the camera and an extra lens.

    I don't have enough stuff to need the one you got, but it looks awesome!

    Thanks! I have a feeling it's going to be really great on trips. Plus, I love backpacks. I don't know why.

    I love that you cruise the forums looking for people to correct. It really makes my day.
