Can't comment much about your choice, but for consideration, I used to use a lower pro rover light...Too large... Now I just use a deuter Hip Pack L (the hip bag that reminds you of a military webbing or sbo), despite the lack of padding, i like it's size. I can just throw my Minolta A1, 3600 Flash, a Sharp View cam and a couple of extra batts, tapes and go, carrying my tripod by hand or tripod strap. The sprint is pretty small, but I wounldn't advice carrying a tripod on a bag's side pockets...it'll uncomfortable after carrying it for a while as it's put your bag off balance... tiring... hee... I just strap my tripod to my back like a rifle or throw it on the ground when i shoot...

not sure about camera equipment but the transalpine is a great bag. (I have a transalpine 22!) There's even a waterproof cover attached! The only downside is seeing so many people carrying the same bag.

Lastly, i think beach road market is still cheaper than sports connection.
