oh YAH I agree about NOT having heavy bags to "carry" I load them up and put them on a cart...
rubbermaid or magliner... but for going long distance accessible only on foot yes I have to agree with back packs...
I use either photo type back packs or have maxpedition packs with drop in dividers...
for active working its belts with shoulder harness to take weight off hips.. I hate it but its only way... when job gets longer... I hire assistant as lens "mule"... (sorry for description) but this keeps me light and can work without fatigue... < or less fatigue.. LOL ;D

I've loaded the Flipside 400 AW with a gripped body, 430EX II, and either one big white zoom (70-200/2.8L IS II or 100-400L) and four black lenses (e.g. 24-105L, 16-35L II, TS-E 24L II, 100L Macro, 135L, etc.), or two big white zooms and three black lenses.

With room to spare, probably.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.

Maybe enough for a CF card or two...   :P
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Tried the Lowepro tool to estimate which bag I need. It told me I should get the Flipside 500 AW. Hmm...

I've loaded the Flipside 400 AW with a gripped body, 430EX II, and either one big white zoom (70-200/2.8L IS II or 100-400L) and four black lenses (e.g. 24-105L, 16-35L II, TS-E 24L II, 100L Macro, 135L, etc.), or two big white zooms and three black lenses.
I bought the Flipside 400 about six months ago based on your recommendation, I think it's a great solution especially since the gear is not accessible while you're wearing it, this is valuable where I live.

I have also a couple of Crumpler bags that I like alot. Then a couple of more Lowepro bags that I mainly use for storage at home. I have yet to match my wife in terms of number of bags though, which is a good argument whenever I bring home a new bag.
