My last bag almost cost me $4500 worth of damage. The damn zipper let go right as I picked up the bag and all my shit fell out, right before I was about to hop onto another boat.

Well, now I want a messenger bag. I'm bouncing between 2 different ones:

I saw the Urban Disguise locally and really liked it, but I'd rather buy it online. I scanned a few threads but seems like most people have backpacks, and I can't really do that. My job requires that my bag can only be black or blue, and I cannot wear a backpack at work (have to have an inflatable life preserver on at all times).

My arsenal only consists of a gripped D300, Nikon 70-200, Sigma 10-20, Tamron 28-75, and an SB600.

You guys have any alternatives or opinions?

I like messenger bags but for all day event shooting, they get heavy.

Or I could just travel lighter. :o

Bought a think tank street walker pro last month. Love it.

I got a think tank retro 30.. i like it a lot... but it does get heavy carrying a D700, F5, 14-24, 35mm f/1.4.... and you're fucked if you want to put in a 70-200.... it'll carry all that shit, but fuck was i hurting.

Million dollar home ftw!! I have the 7MDH and its perfect when I'm shooting an event. If I'm doing lot of walking, i prefer my backpack as it's less strain on my shoulders.

I bought the canon EG-10 recently to carry my flashes, wiring, and other lighting related stuff. Cheap, but it holds a lot of stuff and is made pretty tough.

i bought a snoop large that I like, however its hard to change lens' out by just swinging it around. It's a nice bag overall though, just needs a handle, more pockets and i'd be happier

they don't make it in a large

tamrac has one with a handle and top zippered opening, but its too deep and their padding takes up half the room. Like the snoop the insert is removable, but they could have free'd up more space with it just being sewn in
 

Waddup you?

I recently purchased a thinktank sling. Should done this when I got started. Has just enough room for two flashes, d300 and a 16-35 attached, a prime or two, battery charger and has lotsa misc pockets and dividers to fit more stuff.

Yeah, I went with the Tenba Shootout. It's fantastic.

You dumped your gear in the water? :eek4:

I ALMOST did.

I was taking pictures of an accident on a boat, I put my camera in my bag and zipped it up, not noticing that the zipper jumped off the track halfway through. As I was about to go back on my boat, I picked up my bag and my D300, 70-200, and Sigma fell on the deck. Luckily it didn't rip open when I was crossing over.

All that happened was a couple of scratches on the lens cap of the Sigma :hs:.
