    I have the Camelback Ranger pack. It carries quite a bit and water too. It works for me.

    I was good for ya until I saw those last three characters.


    I will still make a couple of suggestions. 1) Take all your gear to a (proper) local camera shop and stuff it in their bags. 2)Look for some growth potential. 3) Decide on which "style" of bag suits your needs. (shoulder, messenger, backpack) 4) Do on-line comparisons. 5) Check to see if your local shop will price match 6) (should have been No. 1) Budget

    One thing I like about Lowepro bags is the weather condom. Anything with AW in the model number has a pull over cover. Think rain or sand.

    I have pretty much the same gear as you including a handful of filters, extra batteries, memory card reader, lens cleaning kit and a few other odds and ends and they all fit perfectly into my Lowepro slingshot 200. It works really nice if you like to carry you camera in your backpack but want quick access without taking it off. I use mine sometimes when skiing and it allows me to slide it around front real easy without having to take it off to get on the lift. I was worried about how the 300mm would fit but it can fit either on the camera or just in one of the adjustable lens/flash compartments. If you have a costco around you there was a link about it being on a pretty big sale, or i saw a $20 rebate floating around online somewhere so it should cost you about $70 after reabate.
