This forum is genuinely awesome. Thanks to all for the feedback.
So, if I am pushing my luck here please tell me ... but what would folks suggest for a bag/case? Anyone have a favorite that works as kind of the 'everyday' camera bag? I have a Lowepro MicroTrekker from Ritz Camera for my Canon Rebel G that I am using
I really like my Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home
And my extra small Timbuk2 Snoop Messenger.
For flying I really like my HPRC 2550W case. It's waterproof, and built like a tank.
Finally, if I'm out on a serious shoot, I like the now discontinued LowePro Computrekker AW Plus. You can still find these on eBay. I often carried Gitzo 3541LS legs with a Wimberley Gimbal strapped to the bag, a gripped 7D with 500mm mounted, a 7D with 70-200mm f/4 IS mounted, and a 10-20mm, 35L, and 17-55mm loose in the bag. My 15" MacBook Pro lived in the back of the bag. It was heavy, but it carried a ton of gear.
I like the Crumpler for when I'm on a dedicated photo trip". But it's a touch too big for casual use. I like the XS Timbuk2 bag for when I'm out travelling and want to have my camera on me. The XS bag held my 6D with 35L mounted, a 430EX II, and a 70-200mm f/4 IS.
