My Lowepro Computrekker AW - Roland in Vancouver 1177.jpg

I know Tim has already bought a Brain Bag but if you have to carry around an SLR, a laptop, and other things (I also carry an iRiver, an iSight, 2 microphones, a zoom lens and many other technical doodads and geegaws), there is really no other alternative. It ain't stylish being all black but it does the job and it does the job well. Highly recommended.
