Would you mind sharing what shoulder cam bag you use?

Vanguard Oslo 25. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1116329-REG/vanguard_oslo_25gy_shoulder_bag.html

It has a nice contoured shape that rides comfortably when wearing, but still sits flat on the car seat or ground.  The size is good, holding a D7100 and 2-4 lenses.  It's got a nice weather cover too.

Importantly, the material doesn't snag on branches or collect dirt.

It's often my "personal item" when traveling by air.  Or I can cram it empty into my checked luggage and carry on a larger camera bag.

After several years of rough use I'm considering replacing it.  I just don't have total confidence in the zippers any more.
