So I'm looking into a new camera bag, and am curious as to what y'all like and don't like. Hubby was willing to buy me one yesterday at Best Buy, but I told him that I really need to do some more research on them first. Who better to ask, than all of you lovely ladies?
I have one made by Crumpler, I like it but wish I'd have gotten one size up. My favorite lens is almost too big to fit! (I have the 3 million dollar bag.)
I have a lowepro which is good but I need bigger... definitely get a bigger one than you think you need.

I have the Kelly Moore Classic Bag. I love that it's stylish enough to use as a normal purse. Yesterday I went out with DS and it has room for my camera with 50mm attached, diapers, wipes, wallet, sunglasses, phone, snacks. If I'm going on a shoot, I take out most everything but my wallet and phone and it holds my camera with 50mm and my 105mm. I kind of wish I'd gotten the hobo one so it looks even more like a regular purse on regular days. It is a bit too big for trips to the grocery store though.

Oh, you have found my vice
I have a small Jill-e (up for sale if anyone is interested!!!!). While I loved it when I first had it, I've now out grown it and can't find a good configuration with my current line-up of equipment.
I have a small purse messenger bag I bought from Kohls and created a camera bag from that. This is my most used bag of all time. LOVE it
I also have a knock-off Crumpler 8 million dollar home. It was 35 bucks shipped from Canada and is my storage bag at the house. It holds all my equipment when it's just sitting around.
I'd LOVE to get a Kelly Moore or Epiphanie bag....one of the two is next on my list. NOW to justify the price tag to DH
ETA: I also have a Kata back pack that holds camera equipment and a 17 in laptop.

We have this one. We wanted a backpack, DH wanted one that you could leave the lens on the camera, and we wanted one you could put a laptop in too. It's amazing and fits everything. You can put diapers/wipes/kid stuff in the laptop part too if you wanted.
Kaci, what all do you put inside your Crumpler? I probably like the look the best of what has been suggested (at a price we can afford). I have my XTi, 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses and my speedlite. I'd like to be able to put a couple diapers and wipes in there as well.
looks like the 5 mil bag would suit your needs, or go up one if youre planning for the future!
