    I got a Speedlight 600 for Christmas and my 100-300 lens was just returned after 2 months in the shop. I keep my camera in a small Tamrac bag, but now I need a larger one. I'd like one that can hold the camera (D80), the flash and the lens. I will probably get one more shorter lens than the 18-135 that's on the camera.

    I already have a rectangle over-the-shoulder bag. I'd like some suggestions on backpack style bags. A key thing for me is that it would have to be small enough for stadium security as I go to a lot of baseball and football games.

    Please give me your .02. Thanks, OTAP!

    Dakine Sequence is good too but quite a bit bigger than the Mission.

    Check out the Domke bags if you want something fairly lowkey. I use the F2 and it's great.

    Can any of you vouch for these bags going through stadium security as far as size? My Tamrac is cool because all I need to do is flip the top and they can see that it's small and only a camera. Have any of you taken one of these recommended bags to a game? Thanks!
