    Doesn't exactly look better then a domke and definitely not the billingham,

    though it looks like the lowepro but better. Not as "squarish" as the lowepro.

    I for one think that bags is something you can't scrimp on.

    Take the domke for example, it's so rugged and perfect for someone like me that shoots mainly street photography. The paddings in the bags are also very useful for protecting the cameras and lenses in the case of it falling, and the inserts also help to organize my bag to make it less messy and easier to access my gears when in a rush.

    It's also big, and spacious enough for extra equipment including my gears.

    It's about 3 years old now, and still working fine. I'm sure it can last me for another 10 years or maybe even more.
    Yupe. Point noted, Lomographer. (Like that I cannot retire liao. Need $$$$.)

    Yes, point noted too, Cartman2000. (Maybe like this I may have the luxury of retiring a little earlier..)

    Huh? Water bottle - you get the inside foam all wet and in the future you want to put in lenses and all the fungus come eating them up, how?
    May I suggest buying a dedicated water bottle pouch for around $20, which unfortunately currently is out of stock.. Heh heh heh...

    Domke got it from adorama too, but no, the domke isn't available at John 3:16,

    but if i'm not wrong you can ask Samuel to order for you, but it'll take a while.

    If you are in a hurry, you can try CP though the pricing is about $330-$350 (Can't rmb exact price)

    So much hot debate over bags.

    Bottom line is, good bag will last ages. And preferences will always be different. I'm too lazy to "forum" back and forth over these kind of things anymore. Just buy outback200. very nice bag. haha

    It seems to be of excellent value as compared to getting a toploader and lens cases seperately

    just that for inverse 100 seems compact enough but unable to squeeze in an attached battery grip. my budget is way below 70.

    anyone had good recommendation?

    Damn good bag. highly modifiable because it's modular as well. Attach what ever u want to this bag, flash pouch etc etc.

    Drawback? It screams "I HAVE A CAMERA IN THIS BAG AND ALOT OF LENS, COME STAB ME AND STEAL MY STUFF THANKXBAI"

    Otherwise i have been poisoned and love this bag. Plus it's a beltpack with sling. heh
    Huhh!! Now I'm scared coz I got this bag! Anyway it does really screams and say's It's CAMERA BAG, but since I am comfortable on having belt packs, I'm saying that it outweigh the cons.It's comfortable doesn't give too much strain on shoulder that's why I replaced my shoulder bag with it. It fit's my 50D with my 70-200F4 attached perfectly.

    hi,
    bought a think tank speed freak months ago.
    very strong and well made, love the zips.
    prefer it to my ex-lowepro.

    however, i wished i bought a bigger speed racer then.

    Hey akagi07, no rush. Slowly adjust. Bring it for your photo outings a few times with different configurations and lenses an items. Then after a while you will finally understand the best load, the most comfortable adjustment, and what is the best arrangement for yourself.
