    It's a nice bag. I bought one, loaded it up with my stuff, and then I realized how much it weighed. :hs:

    If anyone wants one in red, I've still got the tags on mine and it's never left the house. :)

    i hate my 7 millian dorra home
    it gets way too heavy for one shoulder, and is really uncomfortable
    so i got a customary barge

    They were recommended by OTAP when I was bag hunting. I went with a lowepro backup. The 250 or 350 I can't remember. It's big and can hold a laptop. Worked perfectly in Europe

    the crumpler bag are sooo nice...

    Not trading in my Dakine Sequence for one, but if I ever got a messenger bag for day to day stuff, it'd be a crumpler...

    I didnt like my Brazilion dollar home. It was too inflexible.

    I like my 7mil crumpler...sitting next to me right now. It's been better than any backpack for many reasons than just holding stuff.

    What more does the 8mil crumpler provide than the 7mil? I don't remember seeing that when I was shopping for mine.

    i was looking at this; but i think i might go with the think tank airport ultralight v2

    i jsut bought the canon 200 backpack though; it lacks padding, but it's an otherwise really nice backpack that can hold a lot for only $50-60.

    I think it just has a little extra space. I got it on ebay for pretty cheap so I didn't feel like passing it up considering they were sold out on their website.

    little bit larger, more pockets.

    if you have an old model, the new models have several advantages.. 2 clips instead of one, better weather protection, better colors, more pockets (I think)

    inside: 7D w/ grip, 70-200 2.8L IS mounted [hood reversed]
    28-135 kit lens
    430EXII
    lots o' Filters
    SD1000 P+S cam
    Chargers for both the 7D and P+S
    7D Grip AA Battery Tray
    CF Cards, accessories [flash stand, manuals, etc]
    Asus netbook + Charger, iphone charger
    Belkin 3-out power strip

    I thought the "stacking" of gear would bother me since i've only had backpack style bags, but so long as you stack stuff in the way you'd need it [stuff you'd need to bring out a lot like your flash or other lenses, a P+S, etc] it really isnt that big of a deal.

    cant wait for my industry disgrace strap to come in -- i checked em out at the shop..they have all the ones that are OOS online [the limited edition camo ones] really nice and comfortable. not quite as big as you'd think looking at the pictures online. I thought it was HUGE, but the neck pad and overall width of the strap isn't really as wide as it looks in pictures.

    btw; everyone says the bag is huge, but it really isn't THAT big -- the Brazillion dollar home isn't even really that big either. That bag has a lot more of a boxy shape though, and has supports in the walls of the bag, similar to a porta-brace.

    though im not too sure about the brown/orange yet -- i might either get the plain black or the grey/red.

    but the brown is really nice :hsugh: :greddy:

    I have the newer model with 2 clips as well, but it was sold to me as a 7mil bag.

    I got it a couple days ago and it's very comfortable. I was using the OEM Canon one which is a piece of shit. :o

    yeah it's just like a $7M Home v2

    I have an old $7M Home with only one clip. the number in the name refers to the size. the size didn't change between the old and new models, they just added some extras
