Nothing to worry about

In a perfect world (and definitely if you're buying your first ever bag), you should go to a bricks and mortar shop with your camera gear and see how it all fits.

However, if you're looking to buy one of the more well known brands (Lowepro, Crumpler, Tamrac, Kata, Domke etc...) I don't think you'll go far wrong by buying online. There are plenty of reviews to give you a fairly good idea of what you'll be getting.

I bought a Billingham f2.8 online and I was very pleased with the experience. This was a brand completely unavailable in my area and quite frankly, if you've decided on that kind of specialist (for want of a better word) brand, nothing else is really comparable.
