while i dont own this bag, i must say that think tank really seems to 'get it'. a retrospective will be my next purchase.

i also stumbled across these bags by incase that i thought would be interesting:

Think Tank and Domke made solid bags that fit your gear.
Or Billingham if you are feeling rich.

Something functional and doesn't say steal me? Domke. F-7. Earth tone. It would hold that and much more. Fo' shizzle.

TT Retrospective 20 or 30

I own the 30 and it would fit all of your gear easy, has the messenger bag look (not "CAMERA" bag). should cover everything you're looking for

Domke is good gear .. their canvas bags are soft and kind of mold to your body if you take the bottom padding out. So they present a very low profile and come in a bunch of different sizes .. I too have the F7 and it holds a 1 series body, a 5 series body, two flashes, an 85L and 35L, a 70-200 2.8, and a Tokina 11-16. Plus the usual assortment of misc odds & ends .. tons of room and with their unpadded canvas sides they maintain a reasonable size.

I'm a Crumpler fan. I have 3, 5 & 7 Million Dollar Homes. The latter has been mistaken as a diaper bag more than once. Talk about stealth.

I just wish they offered them in wax canvas. I have a Beretta range bag that's pretty much made in the same manner, with the same type of canvas; but it's waxed. If Domke waxed their material, they'd open a whole new market. I know I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I use my Beretta bag when I only need to carry 1 cam and maybe two lenses.

I ll second Retrospective - I would recommend to get the black vs canvas as the texture of the canvas is really hard on dress pants until the texture gets flattened out...

I use a ThinkTank Airport Ultralight and it fits:

1DX with 70-200 II mounted
1Ds Mark II with 35L mounted
580EX
430EX
16-28 Tokina zoom
1.4x extender, and tubes stacked
1D series charger
85mm f/1.8
Misc. flash accessories (gary fong lightsphere, diffusers)
Small pouches inside the top part hold batteries, business cards, memory cards, wires, and my card reader.
Exterior pouch holds my 15" laptop.

I could fit my 1D Mark III if I sacrificed the charger and put it in my clothes bag or something.

Great backpack with nice wide shoulder straps. Stays very stable on my back, even when I'm jogging through an airport to get to my next flight. Ask me how I know.
