I like the Clik Elite line of products. I have an Escape in black...it will handle your camera with battery grip and a lot of gear...

They have a lot of packs...so if you contact them and tell them EXACTLY what you are toting ...they will have some suggestions for you..they also have incredible periodic sales with GREAT markdowns....
Hope that helps....

I have a Kata Bug-205 PL and i love it.
I tried a dozend and searched for a long time but for me this is the most comfortable.

For my Girlfriend we bought a Kata Owl 272 DL.

+1 for ThinkTank Products.  They do look pretty darn sexy.... and by that I mean clean and sleek, and not too obvious for would be thieves.

I have 3 different Think Tank setups.  The Airport Takeoff to hold everything when traveling, The Sling-O-Matic 10 for casual shooting conditions, and a Pro Speed belt w/Pixel Racing Harness+Digital Holster+Modular set for wedding shoots.

Why aren't more backpacks designed like the Lowepro Flipside series? Walking around in a Flipside backpack in an urban setting provides a little more peace of mind against theft in crowds with the zipper on the "inside" to protect your equipment. Also on rural trails when you put the bag on the dirt ground to open it, you get the outside dirty instead of the side you put back on your back!

Is there any other brand that has a bag like this besides Lowepro?

+1 on the F-stop Loka. 

Lot's of versatility because of the different sized ICU's (inserts) that can be placed within.  And, FWIW, I've carried this in some pretty harsh terrain / environments and can attest to the comfort with a load.

I also have a Kata 3-n-1.  It works well but cannot carry as much nor is it as comfortable if you are carrying all day.

x2 on the Loka, that's what I use.  Awesome bag.

Me too, been using mine for years on many trips and still going strong. Ergonomics are great too, for when you're carrying a heavier load.  If mine eventually wears out, I'll probably buy another Loka, or newer F-Stop pack

Why aren't more backpacks designed like the Lowepro Flipside series? Walking around in a Flipside backpack in an urban setting provides a little more peace of mind against theft in crowds with the zipper on the "inside" to protect your equipment. Also on rural trails when you put the bag on the dirt ground to open it, you get the outside dirty instead of the side you put back on your back!

F-Stop's Mountain series of backpacks does, such as the Loka several of us have.

Looked at the Loka, it just seems way too big of a bag for a day trip around town or a day hike. The Guru F-stop version seems more discreet and manageable for my needs. I am curious if its possible to detach the waiststraps on F-stop's backpacks?

I have the Thinktank Street Walker Hard Drive and love it.  It has a side pocket that'll hold a laptop or flash bracket...that feature is way more handy than I thought it would be when I bought it.

+1.
And I like it for having deeper slots. Compared to the Flipside I had before, this design offers much more space.
In the Flipside I always had to squeeze stuff in.

I have a Tamrac Velocity and I find it very comfortable. It's a mono-shoulder backpack, so it's very quick to slide it back and forth to pick up your camera.

For you the 10x model should work:
