    I got 2 bags.

    1) Mini Trekker AW 2 Backpack(I can load everything inside)
    2) Tamrac 5749 Sling Bag (Mobility on the move, for fast taking in and out ot DSLR without putting the Bag down)
    3) Thinking of getting Tenba Briefcase design Bag (513 or 415 ), (can use as laptop, office bag, camera bag, 3 in 1 Bag)

    think u need to buy a travel bag with a trolley... heheh..

    i using the crumpler's company embarrasment with another tube to store the 70-300

    but i find that crumpler's padding is good protection for the equipment but its too heavy to bring about... thinking of changing to a lighter 1..

    main bag is a 'cheapo' very well used, faded and no label domke F3. snug and fit most of my stuff now. had added extra velcros and stitchings myself. just feeling that internal paddings could be more and thicker.

    Got a Lowepro SR300AW... Still wondering what backpack to get to put laptop & stuff as well as the cam & lens... So far... No conclusion yet... Saw the Computrekker... but that does not have enough space for the laptop stuff...

    Thinking of just getting a targus bag with hugh space and then load the lens in the LC bags before dumping into it... Haiz... Headache just thinking of which to get... Somemore got budget constraint....

    I got :
    1. Stealth Reporter 200AW
    2. Naturetrekker AW II

    Now I got a question. Anyone knows of any bag which can hold a metz 60ct-4 hammer head + its battery pack and a 70-200 lens in at the same time? Of course it has to hold other stuff like backup body and 3-4 other lenses.

    the only thing i like is domke but i also cannot stand the satin labels on the sides of the pockets, screams out photographer whenever you go. Why can't people look for other alternatives when it comes to accessories? same bags/vests/uniforms for that matter......

    I like Crumpler for the look, but they are darn heavy bags and (over)padded to carry a nuclear warhead. I like Lowepro beacuse they are light and they are black. I like Domke as they last forever but can't afford them. SO HOW??

    I have a Crumpler shoudler bag but getting a Mini Trekker AW or Crumpler Shrinkle soon.

Abit regret not getting the bigger Formal Lounge or Brian's HotTub. But otherwise super padded, and can comfortably hold the tripod at the side. This is one rugged mother you can probably toss around and not hurt your camera
    Hey benedium,

    I got about the same amt of stuff you have... you saying the shrinkle is too small overall? I tot of getting the bag and tot the Brian's Hot Tub too big. Btw do you think you can squeeze a 80-200 f2.8 in along with all the other lenses? Would appreciate it if you can PM me a snapshot of the interior with your stuff in.

    Have shrinkle myself, I usually able to fit in my 10D, 70-200, 105, 17-40 and 50mm, but need to take out 50% of the padding out. Good bag/good design. but the design abit odd and more difficult to arrange (vs. minitrekker).
