I've had all of them. Add Timbuk2 and Crumpler to the list.
For messenger style and "hybrid" I suggest looking at Vanguard. They win TIPA awards every year. The one I'd suggest is the Up-Rise , or the Up-Rise II (new version). They are incredibly well built, padded, and thought out. They're expandable, so you can add a laptop. I've got the Up-Rise and Heralder - 2 different sizes. Right now the regular Up-Rise has gone down in price, the differences between the two are subtle.
In fact, I was literally on the Vanguard site when I saw this post - I'm looking for a larger bag with wheels, so I'm looking at the Heralder or the Xcenior to cart around a Canon Cinema 100 and assorted rig gear. Again, their stuff is looking better than Lowepro, Crumpler and even Tumi.
Honestly, I've never felt the love for ThinkTank, as nice as it is. I guess if you really hate your bag looking like a camera bag... But that's what it is.
Anyway, I could go through all of the great things about their bags and how some of their implementation works better (IMHO) than competitors, but you should try to lay your hands on one if possible. I think there's no better bags out there, period (except their tripod bags stink). Bags are a very personal thing.
I keep my 70-200 f2.8 on my 6D, and with the flick of a zipper have it out and ready, it's a great system.
BTW, I'm not really a fan of anything else Vanguard makes.
