For those who are interested in using the same solution most folks now use in my group, i.e. placing your most used photo gear in a "portable ICU / insert" that fits inside your TMP hiking pack and doubles as waist or shoulder bag (see post #1 in this thread) LowePro has a really nice Black Friday sale right now with price drops of 30-40% on most latest Nova bags in camo or black. I would definitely jump on this myself if I my old Nova weren't still going so strong:

Hope this helps.

If the size is sufficient, the 160 suited me great for a D5000 and a couple of lenses. It was slender enough for comfortable shoulder carry, sat flat on the ground or car seat, and was super durable.

But moving in the Nova series, I found the 170 and 180 sizes far too bulky and boxy for comfortable carry - too wide and too flat.
