Finding the right bag for Nikon D200 (for walking around)

I am looking for a great bag for my D200 with which I can walk around and have quick access to my camera (with lens attached). I am interested in the ThinkTank bags as I think they are the new LowePro. I have been a great fan of LowePro and have a NatureTrekker Pro AWII (which is a great bag, but for long trips in the nature and not in crowded cities) so I am looking for a bag to complement it. I want to be able to put my Nikon D200 with the 17-55 DX with the body facing up so I can quick get my camera and take great pictures. That more or less limits me to waist/shoulder bags as backpacks require you to take it off or rotate it to the front which costs precious time. At this moment, I am looking at the ThinkTank Speedracer ( http://www.thinktankphoto.com/ttp_product_SpdRcr.php ), ThinkTank Change Up 40 ( http://www.thinktankphoto.com/ttp_product_ChngUp.php ), and LowePro SlingShot AW200 ( http://www.lowepro.com/Products/Sling_Bags/All_Weather_Cover/SlingShot_200_AW.aspx ). All these bags have some sort of harness solution to distribute weight.

Which bag are you using for this purpose (i.e. walking around a bit city all day with preferably a Nikon D200 type body, 17-55DX, 70-200 and SB-800. And of course memory cards, cables, filters but those will fit in almost any bag.
