Bag for D300, 18-200, SB800, grip, one more lens

I am delighted with the D300, having previously had a CoolPix S7c (which I'll continue to carry in my shirt pocket.)

Now I need to get a bag to carry around my new gear and a pocket won't hack it. As I am nowhere near a camera shop I'm going to have to go by mail order. So I'm asking for suggestions. What I'll want it to carry is

  • D300

  • my 18-200 VR lens

  • SB800 flash

  • grip

  • one more as yet unbought lens

  • battery charger

  • AA batteries

  • a few filters

  • Thom's book (the one that comes with the e-book)

  • spare memory card

  • tripod (nearly forgot that)

I'll be spending a good time hiking, so it needs to be showerproof or have a cape to make it showerproof.

I'd like it to be light and also easy to make a grab for the camera when I see a pic that needs taking NOW.

As ever, I'd appreciate your suggestions.

I don't plan to get more than two lenses in the next couple of years anyway; I don't plan more than a couple of filters.
