Backpack for DSLR with shotgun mic

Hello everyone, and thank you in advance for your advice.

I'm looking for a camera bag that can store a camera and two or three lenses, but has a design such that I mount a shotgun mic in the hotshoe and leave it mounted when I close the case.  The design does not need to be water proof, but I carry the assembly when I'm ski patrolling in Colorado to take stills and videos of action on the ski hill, so the design needs to be tolerant of quick on and off use, as well as being set in the snow and ignored while I'm shooting or capturing footage.

I'm currently looking at the Lowepro Slingshot 202 AW, and I'm wondering if that compartment on top can hold a camera with a small zoom and a mic mounted on top?  Any other suggestions are most welcome.

I think you might want to look at the Lowepro Sport 200 AW. You probably would use the camera compartment just for the camera, and carry the extra lenses in the other part of the bag.

Thank you
