Camera Bag for 3 DA* combo

I just ordered the DA*300 and so it is time to get an another bag in addition to the Billingham Hadley Pro.

That bag has been perfect for my K5 and DA*16-50, DA*50-135, DA 40 and then my charger, and some other accessories.

Ideally a bag a little larger to hold the big new lens as well as the other stuff with a good shoulder pad and could work as a carry on bag for travelling. I know it is a lot of stuff but on our last trip I used the Black Rapid for the body and one lens and then had the other lens in the Pentax soft case in a backpack for day trips. To date I still love my 16-50 and use it the most and am happy with it rain or shine on the black strap for most days.

Anyone with the 3 DA* combo?

What bag are you happy with?

I recommend the Think Tank Urban Disguise 40 or similar. For longer lens mounted on camera such as the 60-250 combo, I use the Urban Disguise 35 ver.2 (I have both).

My LowePro Nova 4 AW fits all three plus the DFA100WR/DA*55, Metz 58 AF-1 and K-5 IIs. Makes a pretty potent kit.

Have you toted up the total weight you'll be carrying? I'd suggest you need to consider a back-pack not a shoulder bag, or your existing bag plus a separate belt/holster for the 300.
