    I was looking at either the Dakine Sequence or Burton Zoom, when I remembered it's been ~5 years or so since i've been on a wildlife/hiking/snowbound photography trip.

    Most of my stuff now is urban, or travelling by car. Not much 'roughing it' these days...

    So now i'm looking for something that meets the following criteria:

    camera equipment I plan to carry:

    1 Nikon D80
    1 18-70mm lens
    1 50mm 1.8 lens
    1 70-300mm lens
    assortment of extra batteries, sd cards, filters, etc.

    I would also like it to be a bit shock resistant, provide easy access, and be comfortable to walk 20 city blocks with.

    I had a messenger bag type, and I hated walking with it. The strain on my shoulders was terrible.

    I was looking at the sling bags, but am not sure if they're any better...


    Ideas?

    I have the zoom and it's a pretty good bag if you're going to be in the rain/snow..

    not much room for anything else besides your camera though..

    I put the following in the bag:
    20D
    24-105 f/4L
    50 f/1.4
    18-55 f/3.5-5.6
    580ex speedlite
    charger
    cables
    a few random stuff

    but I tried to fit a laptop and it's a tight squeeze

    burton zoom, i got one back in september and i havent even considered another bag (and i am a gear junkie that is never satisfied).

    they are a bit hard to find but man is it worth it.

    i carry the following:

    d70s
    18-70
    70-200 2.8
    50mm
    flash
    1.4 extender
    reflector
    gray card
    gobos
    flash gels
    lens clothes
    remote
    cables


    bottom line for its size it really cannot be beat; best of all no one knows it is a camera bag.

    I've got a Lowepro Nova 5 AW shoulder bag that I like. I don't remember the model number of my Tamrac backpack, but I like it. Also holds a laptop.
