... I'll post a photo of what's in my Fred, maybe tomorrow.
Here's what's usually in my Fred courier bag (see first photo).
back row: EF 100-400/4.5-5.6L IS, EF 24-105/4L IS on EOS 5DII (no grip)
middle row: 12" reflector (silver/gold); silver zip bag with Arctic Butterfly, SensorKlear (in LensPen miniPro body), 4x Eneloop AA, mini-multitool, Allen key wrench, and rubber eyepiece shield thingy; black zip bag with CF cards, LP-E6 & LP-E4 batts, Kenko DG 1.4x, USB camera cord, 4" Hejnar rail & wrench, and business cards.
front row: poncho; 580EX II; Domke Gripper 1.5" strap, and Demb Flash Diffuser Pro
not visible (in front pockets): Op/Tech camera/lens raincoat, cap set, paper/stickies, pen
When packed up, it weighs 6 kg (13.2 lb). The 100-400L is in an Op/Tech SnootBoot (visible in the second photo). It will easily take a third lens, like the 16-35/2.8L, which fits best if each of the three lenses are in their own SnootBoots, and the camera is capped with no lens attached. It'll take a 1D-series body instead of the 5DII, but I have to shuffle the lower layer around a bit. Fred is equally happy to take one body with 16-35/2.8L, 24-70/2.8L IL, 70-200/2.8L IS II, and one flash, or two bodies and two lenses.
I normally use a TT Airport Commuter for my 1DX, 1DIV, fast zooms, and multiple flash 'events kit'. For 'tourist' travel, I often use a 'normal' North Face Recon II daypack with everything in neoprene bags. Of course, the normal daypack ergonomics suck for quick access to anything and everything, and so I use the Airport Commuter when I'm shooting events while traveling, in which case, I probably have the 'event kit' with me.
