    All 5 of mine are Lowepro, I love 'em... 4 of the 5 are for sale if you're interested, some I've only used once or twice.

    I have:

    Lowepro Cirrus 15 (not for sale, yet)
    Excellent small bag for a D80/D90 size body (no grip) with lens (even fits my 18-250 Sigma with hood reversed).

    Lowepro Cirrus 25 ($30 shipped)
    Great for D80/D90 (no grip) with zoom lens, hood reversal hasn't been necessary.

    Lowepro Rezo 170AW ($40 shipped)
    My go to bag, fits D80/D90 (no grip) w/zoom lens, SB-600 or second lens, cleaning kit, batteries, charger, miscellaneous.

    Lowepro Flipside 300 ($75 shipped)
    My holds everything bag, very convenient access without having to set the pack down. I can fit my D90 w/grip, 2 SB-600's, SB-400, Sigma 18-250, Nikon 50mm, Nikon 35-70, cleaning kit, charger, batteries, tripod, and more odds and ends.

    Lowepro Toploader 75 ($50 shipped)
    Fits D90 w/grip and zoom lens with a couple odds and ends.

    Really depends on what you're after... small bag (body and lens), medium (body plus a couple lenses) or big, most all your gear.

    I personally enjoy the Tamrac's and been using them for the last 10 years. currently I have the expedition 7 series but I have the old expedition 3 that should be under withing your budget.

    I updated my original response with more info for you. The Flipside is a very sweet system and you'll rarely find yourself having to leave anything at home with it or you can pack light - very versatile.

    I have a Wolverine Backpack that I got off of Amazon (search Wolverine Camera Backpack). It holds my 13'' Laptop, 50D w/ 70-200 attached, 50mm 1.8, 24mm 2.8, Alien Bees B800 flash unit w/ both cords, and has a strap/holder for a tripod. I love it.
