i'm using 2 bags, a domke F2 for serious shoot dat can accomodates alot of stuff,i like it becoz it is a sfot bag,so u can actually squeeze suit suit ur own fitting.the velcro on the main cover allows for quicker access to ur stuff,the bag oso got 2 clips for more secured covering.
another one is the small small Lowepro Nova 1 which i use for my leisure shoot,enuff for one FM with 35mm attached and my TLR plus the normal accessories.. the bag is well padded and should be rain proof..

1. Domke F5X ( I think that's the model ). Small, compact, soft, and carries a lot of stuff for it's small size. Inconspicuous, looks like a normal cheapo bag and does not attract attention unless the viewer is a bag connoisseur :) Very good bag, esp for those tall SLR with attached Vertical grip/battery pack. I got it because it was one of the few bags that can take my old EOS 5 + attached lens + vertical grip. Most other bags are too narrow.

2. LowePro Mini Tracker. For heavy duty carrying. Now seldom use because I'm trying to cut down on the weight of the stuff I carry. Less weight => less tiring => more enjoyment.

3. Big Taiwanese made bag (Brand : Coastar ) that carries more things than my shoulder can bear. Nowadays on the rare occasions that I have lots of stuff, I'll use the Mini Tracker instead.

4. Very small camera bag that carries only 1 body and 1 lens. For very light duty.

Tamrac expedition 5 medium back pack: extremely tough, that's all i can say. able to hold all the lenses i own. build quality is superb with maximum comfort.

lowepro s&f specialist 80 aw: one of the best shoulder bag i ever had. opens other way as compared to conventional bags. able to hold a 70-200, 2 shorter lenses + flash.

I using 2 bags:

1) Crumpler Seedy Three (bought $200++)
Satisfied. Enough space for my items and great protection. My main bag during assignments, allow me quick enough access to equipment as no need to zip up, velcro can liao and things wun fall out. Got this extra clip thing on the strap which i usually hang my battery pack there or put additional pouch for films.

2) Lowepro Mini Trekker AW (bought $123)
Satisfied. Enough space and relatively good protection. Like the built in AW raincoat, comes in handy during sudden showers. The 2 extra slip-on at the sides can let you put more packs for other stuff like water bottles and lens case. Great for travelling or hiking.

umm... camera bags.

I have 4 Lowepro's at the moment

Mini Trekker
Rover Light
S&F Reporter 200
Pro Mag 2 AW

out of those 4 the only one I still use these days is the S&F Reporter 200 if and when I decide to get my film gear out.

When I am out and about these days I use my Camelback Rim Runner when I want to cart my Canon G3 / Flash / filters and IXUS 400 plus jumper or jacket and other stuff.

I've used the Lowepro Bags listed below

Mini Trekker Version 2 (Sold) $123
Micro Trekker 100 (Sold) $? & 02 x Bottle Bag $8 each
Photo Runner (Sold) $?
Linx 160 (Sold) $?
Orion Trekker $? & Utility Case $20+
S&F Light Belt $20+, 01 x Bottle Bag, 02 x pouch 60AW $20+ each

The Mini Trekker is huge and IMO heavy.
It is not easy to access the gear. However, you can store two mounted SLRs. This version came with the tripod holder but no AW. The tripod holder is not very well designed. When you mount the tripod (eg, Manfrotto 190), the legs of the tripod sticks below the base of the bag. As such the bag cannot "Stand" by itself with the tripod mounted. Unless you need it for SLR mounted with 70-200 F2.8, I would not recommend it.

The Micro Trekker is smaller. When attached with the bottle bags
it pretty good for a short hike if you are using SLR mounted with long zoom lenses. However, I still find it very difficult to access to the camera.

The Photo Runner is small. Can be used as a shoulder bag or belt pack.
It can actually store 2 Eos 300 mounted with 28mm F2.8 and 50mm F1.8 lens. Very good for Street Shooting. However, the sling provided for the shoulder is very uncomfortable.

The Linx 160 is the Most comfortable bag among. You can store a EOS 300 mounted with 70-300mm F4-5.6, and 2 small lens and a EOS 300 Body. I sold it because it cannot store two mounted bodies. Unlike the Linx 220, you can sling the Linx 160 on either shoulders.

The Orion Trekker is my favourite bag of all. I actually bought two. It can store two Eos 300 mounted with 80-200mm f4.5-5.6 in the bottom compartment. I can Store a Utility case in the Daypack. The case can hold three small lenses and many small accessories. The Remaining space in the daypack can store 02 water bottles, food and umbrella/raincoat.

S&F belt pack Combo is very very very versatile. I can store 2 SLR each mounted with 28-105 F4-4.5 or 80-200 F4.5-5.6. The bottle bag can store a standard 500ml drink and I also use it to store my filters and accessories. Sometime I add the utility case and another bottle bag to the combo when I go for a short hike. However, you'll find it awkward to carrying around when it is not on your waist.

Assorted Lowepro, Tenaba bags ranging from the Lowepro Magnum Pro shoulder bag up to the Photo Trekker Pro AV. A couple of older Ten's and a whole slew of custom made flight cases. Custom made 'roller' cases to hold my MF and LF kit.
