    Find a nice camera store and check out their inventory.

    I thought I wanted a backpack but ended up getting a slinger. Am very happy with it. (Don't carry the laptop in it.)

    I know that Lowepro has a 'belt pack' type of bag, or there is a belt system with interchangeable parts. Another option is a sling style bag.

    Crumpler makes a wide variety of very nice photo bags as well. http://www.crumpler.ca/Cart/index.php?catId=22

    I have the 5 Million Dollar home for when I need quick access to my camera and the The Whickey And Cox for when I need to carry around more gear. They're both great bags.

    Do a search on e-bay they are half the price on there! My sister bought the same one I have and paid $50.00 for it I paid over 150 for it. The apolo is nice 2 another friend of mine bought it from ebay as well

    Thanks for the input... Good point dpolston haven't thought about the inconvenience to pull the camera out in a fly if I need to...I guess you can't have the best of both worlds. Definately will stop to local store to check out some backpacks...

    Here is one that looks really interesting to me - the Rotation 360...it is a backpack where you can slide the front pack over w/o taking the backpack off. I'm thinking about getting it myself:

    I just don't understand why someone would pay $200.00 for the exact same bag that you can buy for $50 on eBay. The 360 bag is cool, but I think your nuts to pay 200-300 for a backpack. I have a lowepro bag (I didn't pay the full price) And there is absolutely no difference in it to the $50 bags me and friends have from eBay. I'd rather put the left over 150 toward a lens fund.
