For my setup dealing with video, this bag took almost all of my gear. It’s low maintenance and will surely take the abuse of every day use just fine. You have the versatility to configure the bag, as you need it. Plus, you can extend it’s use beyond being a camera bag.

It seems to know what you want, and everything just falls into place intuitively, for example, you don't need to read any instructions to know how to use the bag, and opening the top zip gives quick access to what you want, most likely a fresh memory card, or a different lens.
