Camera bags only come in two sizes; too big and too small.
That explains a lot of my problems. BrownBag Or more accurately, a bag that is big enough is too big.

Indeed LOL.

Or a bag that is big enough today is too small tomorrow. Or too big in some ways and too small in others. I find backpacks often fit this description, since they're often deeper than needed for most lenses laying on their side but not deep enough for many lenses positioned upright, resulting in lots of wasted space (and in the bag fitting your description lol).

Yeatzee,

One of the Kata 3-in-1 bags, probably the 10 or maybe the 20 would be ideal for you since you could set it up as a sling or backpack and latter on as a carry-on. The price maybe an issue, especially with the 20 but they are interesting bags.

neat design but suffers from the same problem as most of the other backpacks i've seen, which is that they have a lot of space but little set apart for the camera equipment. I need to be able to fit more than just a lens on camera, and 2 others (if that). I shoot primes so I need space for most of them

That's a really good video, to whoever did it. I wish we had more like it in the bag reviews.

Thank you

I know you mentioned "not grossly expensive" but in all my bag endeavors, sometimes the old saying, "you get what you pay for" is so true. Comfort is a big issue for me, so when I'm going to be lugging the bag around with me all day, I pull out my Osprey Talon 22 backpack and use different camera inserts that I've accumulated; it's a pain to have to pull it off and fetch gear out of and rearrange but it's for sure a lot more comfortable than some of the camera backpacks I've tried. I really like the ClikElite bags though, and yes, they are expensive, but I've read great reviews about them and they're relatively new to the market so there's not much chatter going on about them. If you think you'll be active in the outdoors with all that gear I would give them a serious look.

Good luck in the bag search, but just keep in mind, it won't be your last or only one.
