    Can anyone recommend a decent bag to carry a DSLR with lens attached and 2 other lens? The ability to hang a tripod off it too would be nice.

    At the moment I use a Lowepro slingshot but I don't like it, too uncomfortable.

    If you want cheap then you can't go for Lowepro ;) as you should already know these are high quality bags ;)

    I also have a Micro Trekker 200, slighty cheaper and holds just has much, worth a look, but its not all weather!

    Also got for the auctions and not the buy it now, if you want an ebay snipper let me know ;) thats how I win stuff cheaper!

    They are high quality yeah, that's true. I think I might have to go for the more expensive version which has the all weather function, it will be no good if my gear gets soaked so it's probably worth the investment.

    I originally purchased the Micro to take on holidays to Portugal with my 400mm zoom, but then it wasn't great for "sunny" London lol and just brought the other one! Also have a large complete water proof bag that I haven't used once LOL worth over 100 quid! wanna buy that?? lol

    I have a Lowepro AW Mini Trekker. Perfect for my requirements and the quality is superb.

    I got it with a Practical Photography magazine subscription which was great value. Excellent magazine too, full of inspiration and interesting techniques.
