New 70D Looking For Sling/Messenger Type Bag

I'm a new 70D and novice starting up.

I received a Ruggard Commando bag free with my DSLR purchase this week, and it's not working well at all.

What I'm looking for is some suggestions to look at in shopping for a new bag. I'd like it to be "sling" or "messenger" so I can wear it easily at sporting events and walking with the family. I'd also like to store the camera with an attached lens so it can be removed easily and ready to shoot when the moment occurs.

In the bag I want to hold my Canon 70D with the attached 18-135, hold my 70-300, a couple of filters, 2 lens hoods, an extra battery, wall charger, and some SD cards.

With some research, I I like the Lowepro Sling or a Tarmac Velocity. The LP Transit 250 can fit an iPad as well and so can the Z Series Tarmac Velocity bags. The iPad would be a nice touch (laptop would be better, but then we get heavy).

Since the LP Transit doesn't seem to store an attached zoom with quick accessibility, I'm leaning Velocity Z.

Does anyone have any experience with the Tarmac Velocity Series bags?

I know a bag is a personal thing, but I only have a Best Buy nearby (no camera shops) and some suggestions on what has been working for you may point me to something I have overlooked since there are so many choices out there.

Again, thanks in advance!

If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it.
