I'm looking for some recommendations for a holster-like bag that will fit a camera body (Canon XTi) and telephoto lens w/ reversed hood (Canon 70-200 F4 IS). I'm looking for the smallest fit possible. I could go without the hood since it's a bit bulky.

Biggest reason for getting this is so I do not have to lug around a large bag on my honeymoon for the "smaller" more romantic trips :)


On another note, I'm also looking for a very comfortable bag that will fit the above equipment along with two smaller lenses (18-55 kit lens + 60mm macro lens). This one will be for the daytime treks. I currently have a Lowepro Micro Trekker 100, but, to be honest, it hangs on my back funny (top of it seems to lean back too much) and gives my shoulders burns when I wear it too long with a tank top.

This is my current bag. The size is perfect, but I need more comfort!


I'm doing research like crazy, but all holsters I run across seem too big or too small. For backpacks, the best way to look for comfort is by experience!

Thanks for any info and help. It's much appreciated!

Hey Serenity!

I've been looking for bags as well. Check out this sling bag. Prices are not so bad on the site but this design looks pretty sexy. This is a little "upper crust" as far as price, but they have ones that go all the way down to $25 USD.

You'll notice that they have international sites in the upper right hand corner if you're not in the US. :)

Wow Daniel, that looks like a perfect small bag with a lot of room! I'll look into that and others of its kind. Thanks!
