    Crumpler online store, ships from Australia. Free shipping to SG for orders above A$50. Got my mild enthusiast large there when the shops here didn't have stocks of the colour I wanted. Worked out cheaper than the shop prices here too

    If cannot make up your mind... just buy both of them. Then can change bag every now and then to suit different clothing. Remember to have matching pairs of shoes too

    Yup, that's why I gave up on Crumpler MDHs long ago. Their camera inserts (Crumpler Haven) are still great and I use them a lot though

    Hmm, what's your budget around and the size u r looking at ? Maybe we can start from there.

    I understand your point ; when I first started I couldn't get pass the pain of understanding why people pay so much for a camera bag ; that was until one day in a spur of the moment paid for a Hadley pro with Mr Chan. now years later ; after trying probably all the commonly known names and even branded (Gucci etc)(curious ma) I'm still sticking to Billingham.

    Not to say other brands are not good ; but the design down to the size and depth of the pockets work for me in the Billingham

    Vanguard Up-Rise 48. I have this one too if I want to really carry lots of stuff, big bag that is not really that expensive. Can get from sgcamerastore. But note that this one is a backpack.

    National Geographic NG A2560 - not really fancy, but very tough. I bought this for my bro when he go to Australia for studies. Really nice. If I have not forgotten, it is around 1xx to 2xx (should be 1xx). Anyway, can get this in TKfoto and other shops in Funan.

    For my usual casual lighting shooting needs, I will normally just use a XS size Timbuk2 messanger bag. And I had recently added a Timbuk2 camera insert for the added protection. Able to carry a DSLR body, 2-3 small lenses, some small accessories and a 10" tablet. In a pinch I am able to squueze up to 1 DSLR body, 2 lenses, a flash, a small Sirui tripod, a 10" tablet and some small accessories. What I like about it, is that it doesn't look like a camera bag, it's just like any casual messenger bag, and it is not bulky to carry around.

    Other than that, I have a Crumpler 5 million camera bag for those times when I need to carry more and another old Crumpler camera backpack which I had not used for quite a while as it is quite bulky.

    Does the Timbuk2 open noisily or is there a Velcro silencer?

    Check out think tank bags also. Wonderful bags that last a long long time.

    Personally love the urban disguise series.

    So MarkersNg, many people here share on the options Liao take your pick.

    End of r day , last piece of advise is always try the bag physically before buying it. Remember u r buying a bag to lug your stuff, protect them and more importantly , allow u to retrieve your camera stuff easily. Any bag that fulfills these 3 should be good enough ; another lesson is more pockets doesn't mean better ; they have to be useful.

    And if u don't mind pre-loved ; wait patiently on B n S for the billinghams to appear. I recently hooted a almost brand new Hadley pro with shoulder strap (actually mint) for <$300 , not very far off the budget.
