Help me find a bigger bag.

I've been reading dozens of posts already. But most only don't go as far as I need. I have a Canon 7d with a 70-200, 10-22, 50 prime, 100mm macro and the original 18-55 kit lens. Also a 430 ex II flash, and filters. Also the usual assortment of other camera extras. I don't plan to buy any other lens soon. I have a Lowepro Sling 202 aw so it's packed tight. Also an important part, I'm a big guy too, so back packs sometimes don't work out (picture it).

Some brands I've looked at is: Lowepro, Tenba, Tamrac, Kata, Think Tank.

Also Important- I'll have to buy via mail order or online because of where I live in western NC, the only retailer within 100 miles is Walmart..

Let me know your suggestions.

Re: Help me find a bigger bag.

I'm not a small guy, 5'10" 230lbs and I use the Tenba Shootout Medium Backpack  and can easily fit what you mentioned into it. If its too tight you can always go with the large.

But maybe F-stop will be big enough

Re: Help me find a bigger bag.

I'm a massive fan of Billingham bags. I still use one I bought 30 years ago but have just bought a new one (445) which should hold what you have mentioned. Have a look at their website, although I bought it cheaper from Amazon (UK). They may be expensive but they last for ever!

Re: Help me find a bigger bag.

since you seem to like thinktank, take a peak at

It is not small, it is very clever and it is flexible. But you might have to get in line to pay the premium price... But very very nice bag, probably the one who is going to replace my thinktank rotation 360... Which is a bit to small.

Re: Help me find a bigger bag.

The Kata 3in1-30 will fit that gear in it.  It works as either a backpack or a sling.  The Tamrac Evolution 8 and also the LowePro Fastpack 350 might work well for you too.

Recommend the Tenba Messenger Camera Bag medium ( Will fit everything you mentioned and an extremely good all round shoulder bag - just received it myself and love it!
