Travel Kit Help

Hello all,

My current dilemma is deciding whether or not I should buy a new bag. I own a Lowepro Flipside 300 which is great for hauling gear when im outside, biking, hiking, whatever. Good construction, nice features blah blah blah,......

When I go on vacation this seems to be a bit much. Thinking of buying a small shoulder bag for vacation. I think at max i'd carry body, 2 lenses, and a flash. Does this sound adequate? (Tripod too, just not in bag) Can I get away with less? I'd like to carry as little as possible.

Main question for me is lighting. I own an AF200t and a Promaster 7000m. The pro is obviously much larger. Trying to decide if a need a bigger bag to carry it or just go with the Af200t/Poverty Wizzard combo. (promaster doesnt work with cactus trigger, but has optic wireless)

Do you guys even find yourself using flash that much on vacation?

I'd really only like to spend around $20-30. This would basically just be a vacation bag.

I may pick up the Pentax 306 on B&H if people say it it will fit my kit...

For 20-30? Hmm have you checked out the shoulder bags from Tamrac? They're super value-for-money. Might fit your budget.

I can't stand shoulder bags though, I hate feeling unbalanced with the weight of my gear on one side. Not good for my back.
