    When I bought my gear in Dec I made a common rookie mistake of buying a bag that is way too small. It was fine for my D3100, the kit lens and the 55-200 that I got originally but now I bought two new lenses on ebay and at some point need to get a proper flash unit so I'm out of room and need something bigger. I was on lowepro's site (since I like there bag) and when I punched in my requirements it came up with the Prorunner 350 AW. It's a pricey bag at $200+ from lowepro directly and about $170 on-line. So, I'm looking at whether there are good alternatives that will meet my needs (a quality bag that will carry my camera+lens and 3 other lenses and a flash unit when the time comes as well as my tablet.) Thoughts???

    Thanks!

    Tenba messenger bag. It's awesome and it has a zipper on top so you can't shoot out of it. It can fit a lot of stuff and has a place for laptop/tablet.

    :lol: Whaaaat? It's a good bag and to anyone not in the know, it just looks like a raggedy old bag with crap in it. I also rather like the F-5XB for storing my speedlights or for use as a light carry travel shooter. I was able to fit my body and 2 DX lenses in there which also happened to squeeze comfortably in the room safe on my trip to Punta Cana.

    The bag I currently have is a 6- lens, lowpro sling camera bag. Decent pockets and has water resistant cover for those misty days while biking :).

    Check out crumpler. I have the five million dollar home and love it, although I made the same mistake and have outgrown my camera bag already as well. But, they make various sizes.

    Thank you folks! I'll have to take a look at domke and temba. I do like the lowepro sling style bags as they have easy access to your gear. Not sure if they hold the tablet..have to double check. Thanks again!
