    Alright, so I have a SlingShot 200 AW right now, but i'm growing out of it. It's alright if i just have a camera with like two smaller lenses, but anything more than that it starts to become impractical.

    Also, after wearing it for a few hours, it gets to be really annoying (being a sling bag and all).

    I want a new bag (backpack this time) that can hold all my lenses and gear. Here's what I've got so far:

    [​IMG]

    Nikon D50
    Nikkor 18-200 VR
    Nikkor 18-55
    Nikkor 50 f/1.8
    Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8
    Sigma 10-20
    Tamron 2xTC
    Nikon SB-600

    After christmas I'll probably have another flash (SB-800 most likely)

    I was looking at the Lowepro Flipside 400 AW, but wanted to know what you guys might suggest.

    I want something that I can comfortably fit that gear in, but doesn't feel like i'm carrying around a duffel bag on my back.

    I don't really need to have any kind of laptop holder, as I usually don't carry it around with me.

    +1 on the Dakine Mission. I carry around about the same amount of gear you have pictured.

    the Mission doesn't look like a camera bag :dunno:

    I'm not finding any shots of it with lens slots, etc

    dakine sequence ftmfw. I carry it everday. It fits the following:

    d80+grip
    80-200 2.8
    tam 17-50 2.8
    tam 90mm
    50mm
    2x sb600
    2x povertywizards
    all sorts of random shit - sd cards, filters, cleaning cloths, notebook+pencil, gaffers tape

    There's also a front pocket that fits notebooks/pens, books, etc., a top pocket that I use for larger things like a packed lunch or props for a shoot or a spare t-shirt, and a couple side pockets for keys, train passes and water bottles...

    I can't recommend it high enough.

    I love my sequence, I use it daily. Have taken a pretty hard fall with it when kid ran into me, nothing happened to my gear. Plus with the rain cover it's sweet for wet days.
