Does anyone have experience with the Tamrac Explorer 2? Or possibly the Lowepro Nova Sport 17l which is also $19.99? I've looked at these and the Tamrac Rally 4 and can't seem to make a decision. I just got a K3 and have a DA 50mm and 18-135 and would like to at some point in the future get the 55-300 mm.

I've read reviews but am not sure how big I should really get if I wanted to throw some accessories in and maybe a couple candy bars or something. The Nova Sport looks good but maybe too big? Any suggestions from people that have used any of these bags?

The Explorer 2 might be too short for the 55-300 (mounted on the body). The lens itself is right at 6-1/2" long. They list the interior of the bag at about 7" deep.

...Just ordered 2 more Passport Sling II bags in black/red to go with my earlier order of the mica/green version -- all via totally insane Adorama deals (Thanks, as always, to Pentax Forums for the heads-up!). BTW, that Photo Sport 18L looks better in person than in the pics (it's not flashy, though) and is best for folding up VERY SMALL inside another bag, a purse, or piece of luggage -- it's made of a sturdy patterned rip-stop material and weighs next to nothing: instant adjunct carryall! You can use the insert elsewhere; and it closes up on top. I have 2 of the red pepper colored Nova Sport bags, too, for other uses (musician's stuff, etc.) -- they really look fabulous; it's a great color, unique in my experience... and also silly cheap when Adorama is blowing out some inventory. Yes, I am a bag-a-holic... a minor vice, surely, at these prices. BTW, hello to my PF friends (I've been, by necessity, absent for awhile due to illness/disability, regrettably; but we're working it out... so, of course, I'll need some new gear!).

...One more thing: The removable shoulder pad on the Passport Sling II is not very well designed for its function. It's just serviceable; so you may want replace that with something better. There are lots of choices out there.

Here is my travel setup with NovaSport 17L on my carry on luggage. If I remember correctly, I packed for the last trip:
Pentax K5iis, bolt flash for it, 21mm ltd, 70mm ltd, tamron 90mm macro
Canon SL1, 40mm pancake, 55-250mm.
Plus my wallet, magnifier, cellphone, my airport sandwich , and bottle of water on the side pockets. It was tight fit, but it fits. I also used extra padding from novasport 35L (huge, huge bag!) bought on sale as well.

I work 3 blocks from Adorama so picked up the Lowepro Sling II. Thanks for the heads up. Pretty good size - fits camera, two lenses and lots of misc stuff. Plan to try it out tonight.

Thanks Adam. I feel compelled to pick up Big Brother 35L now that the price on it is lower than what I paid for the Middle Child 17L.
